Halloween Wrap Up

Here are a few pictures of our Halloween decorations from this weekend.

*The top-left picture is the result of cutting bat after bat out of plain black poster board and using double-stick tape to secure them to the side of the house. The effect was exactly what I was hoping for. The shadow's cast by the porch light was eerily perfect!

*Inspired by this lady's twig-tree decoration I painted several tree branches with black spray paint, added one strand of orange lights, and for extra sparkle added some orange and black Halloween ornaments. 

*A picture of this year's jack o' lantern. Normally, I carve very elaborate, time consuming pumpkins. However, this year with all the other decorations, and my terrible time management skills I kept it pretty traditional.  

A couple of other Halloween related mentions:

As promised here is a picture of the contents of my Sweet & Sinister swap box. 

It included:

- An embellished vintage picture frame that Christine (my swap partner) painted with chalkboard paint. She also made the "Spooky" banner that adorns the frame.

-A handmade journal/photo album. It has several blank pages just waiting to be filled.

-Also included was a little tin, also embellished, filled with lots of both vintage doilies, and lace.

Another thing worthy of mentioning is that this weekend Rachel from "One Pretty Thing" featured my marshmallow treat lollipop's tutorial in her "Halloween Food Roundup".

Random fact: We had 13 trick or treaters this year. Could there be a more perfect Halloween-ish number?

How was your Halloween weekend?
