Halloween 2015

Halloween is definitely at the top of my fun list of decorating!

I really enjoy this time of year, and all it has to offer. We do the apple picking, pumpkin carving, candy apples, fire pits, and the list goes on and on. I especially enjoy haunting out our front yard!  So enjoy the crisp fall air, in front of an open fire with your family.  I’m hoping these pictures will inspire you to add just a few more drops of spookiness to your Halloween list!

Happy Boo Time!

This is my Husband in his work boots, better known as flip flops, helping me add cobwebs. Yes, they really are what he normally does wear when working outside. You should see him with the chainsaw!

You can't really see it well, but the little thing in the frame is the Eye Of Newt. I created this from a frame from the dollar store, painted it black, spread green clay for the background, and pulled out an eyeball from plastic dollar store glasses.
