It's almost Halloween at the Hill home!

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!
