Can you believe it? It’s almost that time again and I’m so excited! Of course I’m panicking as well, trying to remember where I’ve scribbled down ideas for the children’s costumes. My son is 13 and if I remember correctly, last year I bribed him into letting this year be the last year I get to choose what he will be. =D That being said, it’s also ornament time! I’m working on a couple of new Halloween cat ornaments this year that I hope to have ready to debut in the next few days (along with Volvo 244 ones.) Here’s the collection of Halloween cat ornaments available now!
This is our third year celebrating Halloween in PA, and it’s going to be the rainiest one yet. I’m glad we’re not painting our faces this year! I took some photos of the Halloween-ness around the house. A couple of them I tried to HDR but I really don’t play with Photomatix enough to realize what I’m supposed to be doing. It’s just random moving sliders here and there. I took 6 pictures of the living room at different exposures and still ended up blurry on one side. I was using a tripod and a remote shutter, so not sure what went wrong there. Oh well, still shows the room!
Here’s a little pumpkin house we found the other day. I love this house so much! It’s in some tiny rural town, who’s name totally escapes me right now. Oh, wait I think it was Fertigs, PA!
Lastly, to all my East Coast readers/friends/family, please stay safe out there!
Halloween is coming super fast now! I’m pretty sure we’re going to start decorating inside and out since we broke down and bought some mums and pumpkins. Our driveway pumpkins didn’t survive the blight this year, although the gourd plants are still green and seemingly trying, I think it’s too late for anything now. Very sad.
But on a happier note! I created a new Halloween ornament today: the mummy cat! I was trying to think of something I actually don’t even have in my Halloween paintings (yet, but I will now) and that was a mummy cat. I think it came out really cute!
