A good night for a little fright...

The Moon is hiding tonight and the ghosts and goblins want to create a little mischief...they know it's not quite Halloween but they don't think it's fair that they only have one night a year to play....

The witch has started to prepare her brew - I'm not sure what she has in that cauldron of hers but she wants me to try some.. she says it's a secret recipe . I don't know if I should taste it..


I just had to add these this year..such delightful fellows aren't they ?   


I adore the black wreath I found at Michael's and added the extra skeleton adornment in the middle ..


Each year I plan on adding to our cemetery...I would love to have about 20 of these tombstones all across the yard..they are a little time consuming to make but worth it, especially considering the fact that the ones in the store aren't very realistic looking and are fairly costly at $20.00 or more each!  Just buy a huge piece of foam from Home Depot, cut out your shapes , spray paint, grunge it up a bit, spray paint some more , write the epitaphs and you have a handmade tombstone for under $5.00, plus you can write whatever you want on them which is much more funOn Halloween night I light the skull candles that are in front of the tombstones to cast an eerie glow upon them....


This is my favorite one so far ..


The cobwebs take quite awhile to get just right but I love the way it looks ..definitely a little spookier...


I have a little fun decorating the inside of the house as well .. a mix of sweet and spooky...


I love Jack from Nightmare before Christmas .... the new soundtrack Nightmare Revisited is amazing, if you love the movie you should definitely get this CD.






I have 2 bough windows - one in the kitchen and one in the dining room - I have alot of fun dressing those up for the holiday..


This scene is fairly dark and eerie but unfortunately even with the strobe light I couldn't capture the true creepiness on film....028 

I have a little blog give-away for you...leave me a comment  and I will gather the names together Sunday night .. one of you will receive these little goodie boxes that you can fill with candy, treats, whatever you wish!

Good Luck!

  2. Your gravestones are great. I haven't made my own but I've bought some up each year on sale after the holiday and now I have a good nine or ten or... whatever I have... in the yard. The leaves are finally started to turn and fall, time to get my cemetery fixed in the yard.
