Let’s Have Some Halloween Fun!


Are you ready to fill your Fall with fun? Cotton Clouds prefers the sweet and silly to spooky and scary, so check out our round-up of ideas to cover your crafty needs this month!

Cotton Up to Halloween Costumes!


Right now Pinterest is full of wonderful Halloween Costume ideas. Of course we pinned several to our Halloween Fun board! What better costume for any cotton fan? We get such a giggle each time we look at the adorable “Cotton Boll Kid” as we have come to refer to her, and how wonderful are the cotton ball wigs?

Festive Cotton Decorations!

Time to get festive! Sure pumpkins and candy corns may dominate the color palette, but don’t be afraid to branch out and make use of the other seasonal colors! Why not include cotton bolls in your tablescape? They provide a lovely neutral – aren’t they pretty in these images?

Who doesn’t love a cotton dishcloth!

Home is Where the Dishcloths AreBurlington, Vermont, 2013

She and Joyce always met for lunch. Joyce always treated.

Both were too polite to mention why.

She knew real estate was how Joyce made her money. But she felt building community was Joyce’s art. Nurturing the needy. Staying in touch.

She owed Joyce for much more than the decades of lunches. Her husband, for example. A prince among men. Their daughters, full of spirit and charm. The house Joyce discovered for them, their cozy harbor.


She tried to repay Joyce. Polite cards acknowledged the cookies she baked from a family recipe. A cutting she sliced from a prized orchid. A lacy scarf she knit in a luxury fiber.

Then one day, over their salads, both chose spinach with goat cheese, the subject unexpectedly switched to kitchens.

“Doesn’t everyone love dishcloths,” Joyce quipped.

Who knew that Joyce H. Caulfield, real estate queen, fancied the humble dishcloth?

She chose the colors Joyce often wore. She experimented with stitches. Yarns. She couldn’t wait for their next lunch. So she mailed her what she hoped was an artful grouping of utilitarian beauty.

Would Joyce like them as much as she liked making them? Loved making them. She waited for the card her friend was sure to send. And when it arrived, she read it over and over again.

“They bring me joy,” wrote Joyce. “Every day I use my treasured dishcloths and think of wonderful you.”
