Halloween Bunting

Let me start with I LOVE BUNTING!

Once can never have too much - 
it even looks great in layers.

So.... I could not get my creative scrapbooking juices flowing - 
I actually sat at my desk last week and nothing ....
a few days later I decided a small project is what i needed - 
nothing serious - just FUN.

Well here is my Halloween Bunting behind my kitchen sink!

The individual pieces;

Hope you liked it - I am sure there will be more bunting coming soon!

Have a great day!

Haunted Gnome Garden

The Gnomes have gone south, and their home went to pot fast!!

Alex enjoyed his Gnome Garden this year so in the spirit of fall 
I spooked his little homestead.

I enjoyed this as much as he did!

if you havent notices before I like layers & lots of them. Here you can see the clothes line to the left.

in front of the house 

Bought the witches feet at Micheals and made a skirt - 
they were invisible and had no weight visibly before the skirt.
the fence is from Micheals as well & I made the little lanterns.

Mr Bone is enjoying the sun on the bench in the graveyard.
The tombstones i painted and were a dollar store find.
They had chalkboard paint on them to label cheeses and whatnot.

I googles Tombstones for a few ideas of design & 
the names are a mixture of my brain and Harry Potter names!

There are working lights around the top 
( thanks Nana) and Alex had to have the chair ( Mr Bones is currently occupying the chair).
The pumpkins where also a dollar store find.  they were clear crystal jar fillers.
Painted asn podges them - may need another coat of varnish with all the rain today!

My haunted trees are lily stems and add that little height!

Hope you enjoyed the tour!
