Autumn Has Arrived
Halloween is Martha's favorite holiday, so we organized a special Halloween scavenger hunt to count down the days until October 31. Each day we hide a riddle at the end of a Halloween gallery and ask participants to post a picture of their answer to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #MarthasHalloweenHunt, or upload their photo here. Our favorite entries will receive weekly prizes, and one grand prize will be awarded!
Without further ado, here are 18 of our favorite entries from Week One.
Congratulations to our Week One winner, lovinpugs! Nothing could better capture that ethereal feeling of fall than this timeless snapshot of children joyfully frolicking in autumn leaves.

Bowl o' Sprouts
We wouldn't have any trouble getting our daily dose of leafy greens if goddess_goodies made all our meals look as pretty as this brimming bowl of Brussels sprouts.

A Bed of Brussels
candygreeen acknowledges that Brussels sprouts often get a bad rap, but she thinks that with a little butter, they're quite tasty. We agree, and have a few more delicious ideas on how to serve them.

Hoot Goes There
We love all things glittery, and this graphic depiction of a hooting owl from courtneylburns is no exception.

Leave Room for Brooms
Who says brooms are just for cleaning? Not witches, of course. We love the clever way that marthamurph incorporated these rustic brooms into her Halloween decor.

Puppy and Pal
This sweet Shiba Inu plays well with others -- even the prickly variety, like this plush hedgehog toy. Thanks for sharing your snapshot, toyblox!

A Majestic Canine
Donning a tiara and cocking her head sweetly to the side, Kiely looks every part the beloved princess. Thanks for playing, ecohousewife!

We love including pets in our Halloween festivities, especially if it means dressing them up in cute costumes. That's why we can't get enough of this fun photo from drieneck of a pretty pooch gone vamp.

Not all pumpkins are perfectly proportioned! We love this imperfect, oblong pumpkin submitted to us by frogybek.

Frame It Up
Facial hair can be quite the commitment. If you aren't ready (or able) to grow your own, then a mischevious mustache glass is the perfect drinking vessel for you. Thanks, ajane77, for your quirky snapshot!

Facial Hair on Fido
Big brown eyes, a wet nose, and a thick handlebar mustache? One thing's for sure: This doggy has one serious 'do. Thanks for the photo, dewplacee!

Move over, Tom Selleck; you've got some serious competition. One part pacifier and one part mustache equals all-around brilliance. Thanks for sharing the photo of this tiny tyke, jujufad!
