bwahahahaha....

you know, its a little batty around here...

Craig and I did this yesterday...
and his friend, Tia, showed up to help put some finishing touches on things...

we are so ready to go...

our theme this year...
'children of the corn'

we do not display to be scary...

but rather, funny...

we made 3 brooms for free yesterday...
out of limbs and corn leaves left from the combine...

leaves, corn stalks, husks and cobs are all free and add so much...
and...
no plant was harmed...
they were already dead...

skeletons, tombstones and crows don't scare me...

all we need is a strand of white lights...
to back light it all...
and that won't be a problem since everyone has their Christmas stuff out already...
and candy...
we can't forget the candy!
we need more bats...
down to 2 big ones...
have no idea where the little ones went to...
and more crows...
I know I had a lot more than this...
all those light up pumpkins have had their cords cut...
they were just in the way...
and they were picked up at yard sales through the years...
I am thinking of repainting them...
with cooler colors than what they came with...
I will show you more later on...

have a fun day!

Tete, That looks spooky to me. :):) My cousin absolutely loved decorating for Halloween and Christmas. So she went all out on both holidays. I will have pumpkins but I never make them into jack-o-lanterns....because the pumpkin can last thru to Thanksgiving. Your son can be such a good helper...I am so glad he loves helping you. I am thinking of getting my flu shot soon....too many people in the stores coughing, now that scares me. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Hi Tete, you are so creative and this is fabulous for Halloween and the fall season. It does look spooky but fun too. Love how you made the brooms and just the arrangement of it all. Really this could win for best decorated for Halloween. Don't forget the candy. Do you get many kids? We get some years up to 200. Never know for sure but it's a lot of candy!!
Thanks for stopping by and your visit. I've been thinking of you and trying to make it over. This is my very busy season now with the shop and there seems to not be enough hours in the day.
Love your music!!
Have a great week and Happy Fall tomorrow.
Hugs, cm

Wow, you are way ahead of the game, Tete! Looks spooktacular! It still feels like summer here, hard to think of fall, let alone Christmas! Hobby Lobby has had Christmas things in their store for months already!!!

My you go all out with Halloween decor. - We don't do the outside of our house although many places in town do. - I decorate inside though.
