Countdown to Halloween : 31 Days of Halloween Art : Day 24

Skeleton Saga: (my new neighbors)
I first noticed the skeletons hanging out on their screened porch at the end of September.   I snapped this photo during the first week of October, while they were doing stretches and getting limbered up.

When I happened by in mid-October, I caught this unusual sight.  It appears that skeleton2 had performed some type of prank on skeleton1, giving him an extra head.  Now skeleton2 seems to be bored by the whole thing.
As revenge for the prank, skeleton1 tossed skeleton2 into the spider web.   More to come?  Maybe.
(The little commenter is one of my hand made skeleton finger puppets.)

Another postcard I made for a swap.  Trick or Treat!  This one has a little pop out witch which is triggered by opening the door.  Drawn with ink and colored pencils. The candy bowl has a splash of multi-colored glitter glue.

Countdown to Halloween : 31 Days of Halloween Art : Day 18




I happened to catch "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" the other day. I hadn't seen it for several years. As always, it brought back some childhood memories.


I went to the L5P Halloween Festival today.  Fun, Zestos Ice Cream, lots of walking ... I didn't take many photos, but did take some shots of these store windows:
