Nature’s very own Halloween decorations! (Monochrome Monday)

 

 

 

An Autumn Favourite (Monochrome Monday)

These mushrooms appeared on our front lawn just in time for Halloween, complete with an icky-sticky black goo around the edges.

If I hadn’t watch them hatch from their egg-shaped beginnings I would have believed they were someone’s Halloween decorations had gone walk-about!

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!

Halloween is so, SO close! (Monochrome Monday)

It feels as if Halloween was only a few months ago, how can it be Halloween again tomorrow night? The days seem to fly by these days without any effort at all!

And if it’s Halloween tomorrow night, that can only mean one thing… Christmas is just around the corner. WOO HOO, let the countdown begin!🎄

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.

 

 

 

 

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!🍬

 

 

 

 

To SHINE a Natural Light on Halloween (WPC: Shine)

Yesterday morning I couldn’t help but have a quiet chortle to myself when I noticed how Mother Nature was casting her natural light across my “cocooned” chickens. It was as if she was shining a spotlight upon them.

With my ceramic chickens so well and truly secured in the garden, it was easier to have them ensconced in spider-web for Halloween rather than attempting to remove them. Especially as this guy is hanging from the bushes close by.

There’s also the not-so-cutesy decorations. There are several tombstones scattered around the front yard along with the usual body parts in spider-webs plus an old body. Nothing too gruesome for anyone visiting next week.

There’s a rumour our street is popular for trick and treaters hence we have filled our cauldrons with bags of candy in readiness. If only our 8-foot witch standing near the door still cackled, oh well, halloween… bring it on!

SHINE is this week’s Daily Post’s word for the Weekly Photo Challenge.
