Definitely some OLD, NEW, GREEN, REDO in this post.
It's finally Fall in Chicagoland, trees and foliage have been gorgeous and just as quickly dropped onto the ground. We've had brisk temps and then some sweet warm days...I call them the Golden Pumpkin Days!
We really don't do that much decorating for Halloween. We are on the busy entrance to our subdivision, so foot traffic is scarce and so are trick or treaters. So, we decorate for the drivers stuck at the stop sign and ourselves.
Hubby is responsible for the blow-ups. We didn't put the OLD 8 foot Cat up this year...it's been awfully windy this season.
This is the NEW lamp post that replaced the tree hubby took down when I was gone this summer. I used three NEW spiderwebs from $Store. I used 4 cable ties to put them up---easy peasy.
Here he is making sure the OLD train is still working....I tripped on a cord and ripped it, Thank goodness for Gorilla Tape, it's working pretty well!
Our garage OLD wreath with a REDO, I added some thrift store spiders, a $ store web, and our Old stick pumpkins (these are leftovers from my shop days, closed for 16 years now) and the pumpkin on the left was a Good Will) GREEN purchase. We have purple lights on here, oh, and the NEW planter---the other one disintegrated from the sun and leaked like a sieve.
Walking up the walk....you see a lone Iris standing tall in the front flower bed. Our Iris were all trampled in Spring with the Roofers...so we really missed their blooms. But, these sometimes bloom twice, once in Fall. Hopefully some of the other colors will try. Odd to see the Fall Red Sedum and blooming Iris in the same shot!
Up the stairs to the front porch---the couch is a REDO covered in a thrift store table cloth-New tag still on it,....perfect for the season. I'll leave it out until Thanksgiving. Tablecloths are a wonderful source for covering outdoor furniture.
On the potting bench the the 'old' pumpkins were bought at thrift stores and rewired if necessary. One PUMPKIN is real from the garden. The Skelly heads scream and laugh and their eyes glow----really kinda spooky, when anyone makes a sharp sound. The door always sets them off cackling!
The plants are still hanging on and are being sacrificed to the temps. They will be composted...a GREEN
thing to Do!
Well, How's your
OLD, NEW, GREEN, REDO Halloween Going ??
