The Hearth and Soul Hop October 27

The Hearth and Soul Hop
Welcome to The Hearth and Soul Hop, the blog hop for family and comfort food recipes, healthy, sustainable living posts, homemaking, gardening, family, kids, crafts and DIY. Encouraging and inspiring posts are very welcome too.

As you may already know, October marks my 12th Blogging Anniversary or Blogiversary! Join in the celebrations by entering the Giveaway for a $50 (£40) Amazon Gift Certificate! You can find out more here.

The celebrations have also included some wonderful guest posts during the month of October. The latest? Pastitsada from Katerina of Culinary Flavors and a Creamy Roast Tomato Soup Recipe from Cindy of Hun…What’s For Dinner?

In day to day blogging news, I’ve reviewed an exciting new modern ballet production from MurleyDance – Hail Britannia – and I also covered the National Harvest Service, part of an initiative from Love British Food to reinvigorate UK celebrations of the harvest.

Today I’m featuring three of the Halloween themed posts that were shared with the Hearth and Soul Hop last week.
