bat appreciation by happilyintended on Polyvore
If you've read this old post or ever spent any time with me ever, you know that I looooove bats. However, I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with Halloween. I scour the Halloween stuff in stores at this time of year, searching for things to add to my batty collection and getting annoyed with all the 'anti-bat propaganda.' I only buy things that portray bats as nice creatures, nothing that plays on their all-too-common association with fear.
Even with my self-imposed limitations, I usually end spending more money that I really should on bat gear. Most years, I find tons of stuff and have to try really hard to practice self control. This year, however, I've been seeing lots of owls and cats but not a lot of bats. It seems that I have to get my fix somehow--I've lined up a whole bunch of bat-themed crafts to make over the coming weeks. If you've got a negative bat-titude, go ahead and drop it right now--it's about to get all kinds of batty up in here!
