I'll let you in on a little secret ~ I'm not good at reproducing a scary Halloween
scene. One of my very closest friends from childhood, who now lives in an
Atlanta suburb, goes all out for Halloween. Dry ice, grave yard in the front yard,
skeletons and ghosts hanging from trees. Spooky sounds as you walk up
the path leading to her house. She plans for weeks, and the kids love it!
I am more of the toddler set. Happy smiling pumpkins, sunny mums ~ you get
the picture. I have tried ~ but I just can't do it. I still get freaked out when I watch
the movie "Psycho". I know what's coming during the shower scene ~ but it still
scares me. I can't begin to tell you how long it took me to be able to shower when
no one else was home!!!
What was the name of that movie where Jack Nicholson breaks in the door and shouts
Scares me to pieces! So if you are looking to find a really scary scene on my
front porch, you are bound to be disappointed.
I will be happily handing out candy on Halloween to the little ones who
still like the smiling pumpkins like me. Kids are so sophisticated these days
that they will need to be really little super heros, or sweet peas wearing tutus
to enjoy my Halloween decorating. Although ... I went hog wild and
put out a black crow this year, so maybe there is hope for me yet.
At least I have not erected a jungle gym full of birds ....
oops too scary to even think about!!!
I'm hoping the Tablescaper has something cheerful for
Bentley ~ when are you planning to display your Halloween pumpkin? Let
me know so we can stage it and take pics!!
