I was so engrossed in everyday activities, that I almost forgot Halloween was around the corner.It used to be one of the best times of the year for me. Our entire family used to pack our bags and visit my grandma who lived in the countryside away from the city. Apple pies, tasty cupcakes, mint tea, the house was filled with all these aromas. It looked even more beautiful than it smelled. The first attraction of the place was a human-sized showpiece placed right in the middle of her garden. She loved decorating the place with different types of figurines and followed a sculptural theme for decorating the place. It must have been an expensive affair back then but it gave the house a timeless vibe and appeal. And it was those detailed and elegant figurines that etched the beauty of the place on the slab of my memory. Seeing my habit of buying showpieces online, my mom says I share the same passion grandma had. Which is probably right because I want the interior of my place to look timeless too and using figurines is the best way to achieve that.
