Wow - October 1st! Really? I feel I am so far behind in everything! Well, smatterings of fall and Halloween are finally beginning to appear around my house - a very good thing. I love Autumn and all things SPOOKY!
I have an area in the kitchen behind the corner sink for which I always like to find seasonal and fun things to dress it up.
When I was a little girl, my Mom and I were at a craft show and we bought this ghost. We thought he was SO cool and what a ghost should totally look like should we ever run into one. Every year we would always try to find a new place to put him. He was a huge part of our holidays tradition just as much as our shepherd boy who is a dead ringer for Barry Manilow. So not kidding!
A few years ago, I found the awesome tombstones at Michael's. Then, I found the skull gate and fence pieces on clearance at the Yankee Candle outlet store. I created this graveyard scene and have been adding things to it every year. I picked up the black Dept. 56 trees at Goodwill and they are perfectly perfect. I just like the quintessential Halloween feeling this scene gives and when I turn the lights out at the end of the day, I wonder what really goes on inside those gates! :-) BOO!
