The decorations are going up up UP! (And so is this page, finally...)
The color theme for my lights this year is RED - the green, blue and blacklight
all get washed out by the Really Obnoxious Streetlight on the corner.
And I just refuse to buy orange lights on principle...*anyone* can buy
orange lights. Too many people do already. Ick.
are up. Some of the lights are up (still working on those.) I have lights
for the bushes (they're just not up yet) and fresh cobwebs, since I think
I used the last of the old ones last year. Pictures will be up soon, I
promise! :) Tombstones and skull pile will be going up on Halloween day.
I put a lot of work into them, picking out the styrofoam bits piece by
piece, I don't want them walking away if I can avoid it. They've lasted
4 years now, I'm actually quite amazed they're still holding up. Still
haven't figured out what I want to do with the BIG tombstone yet, I'm
sure I'll come up with something.
I finally got all my lights up! Yay! There's also cobwebs on the bushes,
they're just not as encased in cobwebs this year as they otherwise would
be. (Note to self: Cobwebs can be too cheap...)
I've got the
lace curtains up in the foyer with the lighted skull and screaming doormat
ready to go, just need to move it into place tomorrow. Tombstones and
skull piles still to go up tomorrow. I may do more than one skull pile
this year, it depends on how ambitious I get. I looked at the tree in
the front yard, and realized I can't hang anything from it, the tree's
not strong enough yet.
Ok, I got pictures! Sorry, they're night-shots with the vidcam, but this
is what you get for wanting instant pictures. :) I haven't even gotten
the color film pictures developed, much less scanned. Sorry, they're a
bit huge, I'm too toasted (I'm writing this Halloween night while watching
VH-1's special on Rocky Horror Picture Show) to try to play with the size
and dimensions. I will fix this soon. Just after I....Zzzzzzzz *snork*
*blink* get some sleep. In the meantime, enjoy...
Yay, finally got the pictures a bit more optomized. They're less huge
now, and more along the lines of "just plain big" - I'd like
to shrink them to 1/2 the size, but I want people to be able to SEE the
dern things. I also put captions on the 3rd picture so that you'd know
what was actually written on the tombstones. I noticed that shot was a
little too dark to read them. :)
