Haunted House and Halloween Update





Up There

Who living up there in that tiny room? I don't think this house is really haunted but on Halloween anything is imaginable. Happy Trick or Treating!

UPDATE The weather Halloween night couldn't have been more perfect. Warm, windy, and an amazing moon. I tried to capture it as it reflected in our dormer window, but photographer Kerry Hawkins captured it much better as you can see on her blog.
Our end of the street is kind of dark and we usually don't get many trick or treaters, so this year I made a few luminaria to try and entice kids to walk up the driveway. It worked! I couldn't believe we were able to keep these going with all the wind, but they lasted the entire night. And it looked really cool cuz the bags glowed an orange light. It was a tradition in our neighborhood in Ohio for each house to make these and put them out on Christmas Eve. I used to love driving around that night and seeing all of the streets lined with lights. 


And finally, scary Polo...

Oh boy! I do love the color of this home! I am reminded of New England and widows walks and the sea...

Nice update, Ann. Amazing shot of the moon reflected in that dormer window!! I've never made luminarias but always wondered how it was done. They do look amazing lining the walks and drives, don't they? Love how Polo got into the spirit of things!
