Well the husband and kid made it to work and school ok despite the missing pieces from their morning routines. And....I got a lot done! Ha! No distractions. Just peace and quiet and an occasional meow from Luna. I edited a good chunk of my Fanciful Twist Halloween Party pics, caught up on my ATCs, and even managed to bring out a few more decorations out of storage. Amazing!
Everything is back in order again. My Spooky Monday post is nearly a Spooky Wednesday one. So with a quick apology to dear Wendy here is my Spooky Monday.....
I really wanted to take a picture of the moon last night. That lovely crescent moon playing hide and seek behind the witchy tree in my front yard. I call it my witchy tree because in a week or so I'll hang pointy little witch hats from it. I wanted a picture of the moon because it's our moon. Yours and mine. The one that's going to light up our Tea Party in less than 2 weeks! It's our very own Halloween moon and we can watch it grow and grow until it looks like a ghost pumpkin against the velvet night sky. Isn't it exciting?
There are spooky shadows in my front yard that even a passing ghost might find curious. Like this one from a plant I named Arthur. Although he looks quite odd and unassuming Arthur plays a part in the Halloweening of my wee house.
And what might this curious warty gourd be you might ask? Isn't it beautiful? I'm told it's called a knucklehead pumpkin. Honestly! My son and I saw it and had to add one to our pumpkin collection. In keeping with our tradition of naming just about any inanimate object we dubbed this one Warwick of the Shire of Wharty.
Finally here is a look back at last years decor. This spooky witch scared a few little ones last year. I think she's quite lovely myself. And there is my plant Arthur right next to her. See he holds up one of my pumpkin lanterns. I love when everything twinkles with orange fairy lights which we are about to put up right now. Let's hope they all hold up in the heat tomorrow. Our October heat wave continues with another high of 91. I knew we would pay for that unusually cool summer somewhere. Any of you lovelies out on the east coast mind blowing a few more leaves my way?
Make sure to visit Wendy at Wendy's Adventures in Wonderland for lots more Spooky Mondays fun. And there's still time to join my Tea Party Under A Halloween Moon. Won't you come and play?
Happy almost mid week Spooky Monday!
