It's that time again..when it grows dark a little earlier each night...when the wind rustles the leaves, swirling them in the air...when nothing is quite as it seems.
and everything is getting a little eerie around our house!
Even the playhouse!
|Cornstalks flank the patio and deck.|
Using dead wood from our lilacs, I manufactured a barren tree that is covered in cobwebs to give the house an abandoned, creepy effect. I set a Haunted House sign in the branches along with a menacing vulture.
|Crows have descended on the rooftop.|
Just like last year, there are rats set upon the front porch, and a witches broom leaning against the front door, giving passersby reason to wander just who lives inside?!
A spooky Halloween flag flaps in the October breeze, while translucent skeletons and ghosts wave in the wind on the dogwood tree nearby. Bats are draped on the porch railings, and plump orange pumpkins are set just outside the doorway, with garlands of autumn leaves.
|A witches cauldron hangs from the front porch while a crow sits atop the eaves.|
A Frankenstein monster lurks in the bushes.
Would you dare to enter within?!
