If you’re a frequent follower of this blog, you know I’ve been tiptoeing through Halloween memories lately, posting photos of Halloween crafts I designed years ago in craft magazines that no longer exist. There was the Halloween Door Witch on October 3rd, followed by the set of Halloween plastic canvas table décor this past Monday.
I also posted last Friday on the inspiration behind Lucille, Anastasia’s cantankerous communist mother-in-law. In that post I mentioned that other than Lucille, most of the characters in the Anastasia Pollack Crafting Mysteries spring from Lois’s imagination. I have it on good authority, though, that her sons think otherwise. They believe that they’re the inspiration behind Alex and Nick.
So even though Lois is a firm believer in not posting personal pictures and information about her family on the Internet, she’s allowed me to share this Halloween photo, taken decades ago and well before smart phones and digital cameras, of Batman and Superman. And yes, those are homemade Halloween costumes.
