As you saw above, the weather was kind of, well, Oregon-esque. Cool, grey and damp. But a few hours later it cleared up and I have to say, few things out in the world are prettier than a bright, crisp blue fall sky and the bright orange, red and green leaves.
Some decorating had been done all ready, like these spiderwebs and giant spiders...I learned later that our across the street neightbor is terrified of spiders. Whoops. Well, I guess you can't win 'em all.
Skeleton brides and grooms, gravestones...I'm contemplating putting some fabric/balloon ghosts out there. I think we have something like 10 gravestones total out there.
The white pumpkins we thought would look nicer painted than carved. So I got bored the other night whatching re-runs and decided to paint a damask bat on one. The damask didn't work out as well as I hoped so I opted for lacy instead. I'm pretty happy with the results!
