the SCARY part of my Halloween decor
What's scary is how much stuff I am going to be trying to use! I only plan to do the bay window and some on the tea cart, and my 2 curios by the bay window (thank you very
much, Candy for the 'push' there! Great idea.) So on Friday I packed the bronze and metal whippet figurines away for the rest of the year, and got the curios emptied to put my Halloween figurines in, for the first time ever. Sat I did nothing as my legs and back and neck said they were not going to work. No way, no how. This morning I told them all to go to H---, as I had to do
the Halloween... or forget it this year! So I decided to pile it ALL on the kitchen table, on the chairs, on the floor by them. And in the bay window. Figured I'd have no choice but to decorate. LOL. Good idea, in theory anyway. sigh
I got stuff out of a garage cabinet, out of the sitting room closet, out of a bin in the garage, but have YET to get it out of a small cabinet in the house (where my figurines and delicate decorations are. I had NO place to safely put that. But I had the BIG, brand NEW ceramic Raven from Hobby Lobby I got a month ago to deal with. So I put him safely up on top of a curio, with a black pumpkin. Just a few minutes ago I heard a loud 'noise' and discovered Jazz had jumped up there and knocked the Raven off. I was so upset. At least the only part that shattered was the ceramic pumpkin base the Raven was on. Somehow the Raven survived with just a nick on his tail I could touch up with black paint. WHEW! He broke cleanly off his pumpkin.(Darn Cat.) I am foreseeing more problems as I find places for things. Like the spiders, and dangly stuff. sigh.
It took me several hours just to do what I did. I had actually thought I'd be done. HA. Makes me wonder where THAT thought came from!! ALL I got done was to hang creepy cloth in the bay window, and put a few things on the front porch, and create a big mess that is sitting there waiting for me to do something about it. I hope if I sit here awhile, my legs will let me do more later on tonight.
(I'd shut Jazz in my study if I could. But he knows how to open the doors to the rooms and let himself out. He does not care to be shut up.)
Looking at JUST the pile on the table, and in the bay window, on the floor and chairs....it sort of makes
me think I'm trying to push an elephant thru a keyhole.;o(
Maybe Teegan will help me tomorrow.....she's HERE!!! Arrived yesterday. Wooooo Hooooo. I am even more in love with her now I've actually seen her. The little tag, and certificate say she's a Ltd Ed, (not for children under 14 as she's not a toy) with her face, hands, and feet being porcelain. Her hair is real, and she also has REAL
eyelashes (upper and lower). She's just soooo pretty and sweet. And she's hiding in my closet right now, but that's another story. LOL.
Here's the messy, scary table....from all sides... waiting for me to do something about it!
and the bay window. Jeeez, just how many black metal things does a person need to have?!!! I amaze myself at times, tho definitely NOT in a GOOD way! Wonder how I am going to use these this year with my limited areas?
With any luck, future photos will show actual decor tomorrow.
