Halloween Rescheduled

The moon setting over Powessit Farm in Dover, MA
I don't ever remember Halloween being rescheduled in my childhood, but then again there wasn't ever a storm in October that did the damage this past one did in my memory either.  We, thankfully did not loose power for more than 24 hours, but many did and it was a wise decision that our town made to reschedule and not cancel this spooky event. 

Distributing candy is done from bowls and that seems to be #1 on the gift giving list for pottery purchasers this year.  Here is a selection of some I will be offering this year at upcoming venues and sales - purchase now so you can have a one of a kind bowl for next Halloween's bowl of candy! And what to do with all that candy in the meantime? Scroll down for a recipe for "candy" bars.
