Halloween Decorations

Pumpkins and ghosts. We are gearing up for Halloween in our neighborhood. My beautiful girls have kindly asked me “if I could be a little bit more scary with our Halloween props”. Forget that! I am not into skeletons, grave yards and chopped off fingers. But I did invest in 12 new furry rats and 2 large bats!

The leaves outside our home are turning into rich fall colors. I love fall!

Inside the house I do not decorate that much. But we have had this Halloween tree for years. You may call it tacky, yes, go ahead! – but we love it! It is so festive and fun. All the ornaments are handmade.

Call me lazy, but this is all I musted for this year’s Halloween. (Although I pulled out strings of orange mini lights for the boxwood hedges).

No skeleton here folks. Only feathers.

Here are a few of our new furry friends!

Charlie kept me company while I was battling pumpkins, crows and rats.

Now I am ready for all those hords of trick or treaters!

Next year I might try these brilliant Halloween decorations. (Below).

Ghostly portraits. How fun is that!

Felt bats of different sizes covering the front entrance. Simple but dramatic.

The first image and the 2 last are from Country Living.
