Haunted Humpday

It's another Haunted Humpday! Today's post is only slightly late and rather brief. I've been feeling under the weather all day so I spent most of it curled up on the sofa with my pup. But I'm finally feeling a little better now so I decided to squeeze in a last minute post.

I was out in my front yard early this morning before I realized how unwell I felt. We had a little bit of rain so I went out to take a few pictures of my slightly damp decorations.

This is one of the few plants that I've been able to keep alive. I can never remember what it's real name is but my son and I call it our wizard plant so I named it Mrs Weasely.

Spooky spider by the front door.

I have a few little black birds perched on the gate. The skulls in the back are the plastic ones from the Dollar Tree. My son didn't like how shiny the original color was so he covered them all with Gesso primer to repaint them but decided that the Gesso gave them a more authentic look.

One of our resident skeletons.

One of my favorite things to do this time of the year is drive around my city looking for houses with great decorations. This little cottage is one of my favorites. I check every few days to see if they've put up the giant spider. Last year they had it up on the roof.

The front yard is usually clear all year long.They add the rickety fence and 'stone' posts just for Halloween. I love when people are this creative but I also wonder where they put it all the rest of the year!

Hope you're having a wicked October. It's going way too fast so enjoy every minute.

Thank you, Marfi, for hosting. Please stop by Incipient Wings for more spookyness.

I would LOVE to have that giant spider in my yard, but if I did, my neighbor (an arachnophobe) wouldn't come out of her house!

Hope you feel better soon!

Thanks for the great pics--love that big spider! Your son must be a creative, fun kid to think of using gesso on the skulls. Hope you feel better soon.

I love your decor, and I have never seen anything like that giant spider - it's so cool. How I envy you guys around this time of year!
