Surely He Can't Be Serious.....

I put up the Halloween decorations this morning. I must admit to cheating here and there. I have decided to leave the windows without curtains. That way I can put in fabric matching the season. I opted for the skeleton material for Halloween. I simply cut one piece to cover both windows and masking taped them to the back. When Halloween is over, I rip that off and do another piece to match the next holiday.

It looks pretty good from the front. The main thing is, Tessie approves.

Tessie raided the Witches' Warehouse once more and we had more than enough to fill the porch.

Here you can see the whole thing. I used some sparkly black mini trim for the swags around the top. Tessie found all of the pumpkins. The ones on the lawn are a string of four that go with the Halloween villages that you see at Michael's and other craft stores. They actually light up. It's kind of hard to see in the photo.

I dug up the skeleton that you see in the corner....No. I didn't really "dig" him up. He was in a drawer in the workroom.(Notice that I am calling it the workroom again. I need to get in there and straighten.)

Zar is back....Poke the photo. I don't think that Tessie is falling for the false nose and glasses. As I said before..."Surely he can't be serious!".
How gullible does he think she is? And why would she want to invite a stranger with a big, bulbous, pink nose and fuzzy wrought iron eyebrows to her party anyway? He has to be kidding!

I may still add a few more things to the scene before Halloween gets here. If I do, I will show you how I do it.

Right now, I am going back to watch the fun. I want to see how long it takes for Tessie to kick him off of the porch. I am surprised that she even let him get that far. Maybe it was so that she could kick him farther when she does it....

See you tomorrow.
