With everything going on around here during the next few weeks (two weeks to be exact), along with my normal October-time sinus infection, I decided to put a few finishing touches on the front porch and call it DONE.
It's not nearly everything I wanted to do. Given more time, less projects, and a ton more $$$, it could have been better, but I think everything turned out pretty well.
(Sorry for the crazy shadows....I was never outside when the sun was "perfect" and these are the best photos I was able to get)
Don't you just love these bones? This was all Jameson's handi-work. He spent forever burying these bones to get them to look "just so". He had a black crow in there, looking like he was pecking at the bones, but the neighborhood dogs liked it and destroyed it.
You see these super-cool apple gourds? My friend Beth gave them to us a few weeks ago. They look just like huge green apples, but later, turn into gourds. They can be painted to look like anything you want. I LOVED the green color, so I left them plain, for now. But after only one day out in the sun, they already started to turn. I hope to paint a few once they are dried out.
This is really cool in the dark. It glows all different colors.
Well, there you go, my Halloween front porch!
I hope you all have a wonderful week, filled with fun Tricks and Treats!
