Only 29 days until Halloween
and it is getting pretty scary looking around our house. We have our dancing ghosties up in the front yard, the jack 0 lantern lights in my window facing the street, and the witch is on the front porch lit with still more jack o lantern lights.
But the crowning glory this year has been the new addition: my labor of love...my haunted house. Kip and I bought some paper mache houses at Hobby Lobby on our way to Winter Retreat last year. I fell in love with the houses and had Jayne pick me up the biggest one they make. My "haunted house" is almost a foot tall and nine inches on the sides. I used a variety of papers and stickers and the roof is actually some metal sheeting by Provo Craft that I cut to fit (with a little help from E). Inside the house I placed 2 battery operated flickering candles to produce an undulating backdrop to the images on the windows. I've had such fun with this. Hope you enjoy it too.
