Back in the day… (JNW’s Halloween Challenge – Costume)

This was such a fun Halloween we celebrated onboard the cruise ship as we sailed down the east coast of America a few years back. That witches hat has seen SO many Halloweens. Now to find something to wear it with for tonight’s Trick or Treaters!

Costume is today’s final  challenge word for Jennifer Nichole Wells Halloween Challenge!

Just how long did THIS delivery take? (JNW’s Halloween Challenge – Skeleton)

As we walked around Manhattan we spied this skeleton hanging randomly from a tree in front of a store. The thing was that it was March not October but hey, it was New York City!

Skeleton is today’s challenge word for Jennifer Nichole Wells Halloween Challenge.

 

 

 

 

Looking down my garden path (JNW’s Halloween Challenge – Autumn)

How lucky are we to have this Red Maple Tree in our very own back yard? Its fall colours are so bright and beautiful against the green grass and the rock path.

Autumn is today’s Challenge Word with  Jennifer Nichole Wells Halloween Challenge.

 

 

 

 

What’s brewing? (JNW’s Halloween Challenge – Party)

What better for a Halloween party then these fabulous bright glasses to hold a witches brew or two. Don’t you love how the humble mason jar has progressed over the years?

Party is today’s Challenge Word from Jennifer Nichole Wells Halloween Challenge.

 

 

 

 

Hands up who likes Halloween (JNW’s Halloween Challenge – Spooky)

Last year I came across these “bloody hand prints” purely by chance. I had them decorating both our front door and our front windows for that little something spooky for our visitors!

Jennifer Nichole Wells is once again hosting her fun Halloween Challenge. Today’s challenge word is… Spooky.

👻 Happy Halloween! (Monochrome Monday)

When planning this post for Halloween, it was to accompany a photo of some of our Halloween decorations. Of course, what I had in mind and what was appearing on my screen proved two very, VERY different things. Then fate intervened.

Miss Thirteen is slowly filling the wall over her bed-head with an assortment of frames obviously requiring photos within. Last night whilst combing though the archives looking for an image for her from our time in Iceland I chanced upon this capture.

Happy Halloween!

This image was taken not far from our house in Reyðarfjörður one cold, January evening. The image is blurred due to so little natural light, making it an ideal background for what I needed today. Mission accomplished… now bring on the candy!🍬

 

 

 

 

A Transmitting Fog (JHC: Fog)

On one of our trips to the orthodontist, the fog sitting over the Skeena River was so thick and heavy it stayed with us for two-thirds of the 145km journey. Normally it either burns-off or disappears not longer after the Port Edward turn-off.

Since it was over the summer, thankfully the camera was with me since I knew there was no urgency to return to Prince Rupert to meet end-of-day school bells. Time is always the evil that works against me!

Fog is today’s Halloween Challenge word from Jennifer Nichole Wells.

New-Age Count Drac! (JHC: Bat/Vampire)

This guy was one of the very first Halloween decorations I bought after moving to Canada. He’s not very gruesome but he does have a certain “je ne sais quoi” about him I think (or perhaps I’m simply going batty, lol).

Count Drac

Count Drac and his bats is my submission for Jennifer Nichole Wells Halloween Challenge today of – Bats/Vampire. How did Jennifer know my vampire came complete with bats I wonder???

Verscratchy (JHC: Cat)

Today I’m joining in the Halloween Challenge hosted by Jennifer Nichole Wells. Jennifer has dedicated this month to all things Halloween – nominating a different subject matter for each and every day of the week. Today’s word is CAT!

jnw-cat

Now you may be thinking this cat isn’t that scary but you’d be wrong. It represents the dark-side of our fur-balls! If you’ve ever been owned by a cat you’d know they LOVE scratching, particularly new, expensive or irreplaceable items.

Nothing sends a shiver down one’s spine faster than that of a cat scratching NOT at it’s scratching post. No matter how tired or sore you might be at the end of the day, as soon as you hear that first claw hits its intended target, you are bounding over furniture with spray bottle in hand to confront the guilty party. And cats always know when you are at your weakest!
