Happy Halloween

Considering I don't like spiders, bats, zombies, supernatural or other spooky scary stuff (and get a teeny bit freaked out by some of the various ghosties and ghouls who come begging Trick or Treating after dusk) I do actually make an effort with the Halloween preparations!

Plus it's the one day of the year I can pretend the cobwebs on the ceiling are part of the decorations!

I've blu-tac'd a trail of spiders on the front door leading to the doorbell (although they're a right b*gger to pull off the next day as the blu-tac seems to weld itself to the plastic door overnight!), I've strung up the dinky lanterns that I made last year in green, orange and purple felt and taped some pumpkin fairy lights to the windows.  And of course not forgetting my trick or treat pouches (see my pouch post here).

I have also sent a couple of Halloween cards.

And when I say 'couple', I actually do mean 'couple'.


I blogged the first one, featuring Willow the Witch, a few weeks ago, and I'm sharing the other one today.

But I liked this little kitty so much that I made one for myself too! :0)

So here's Midnight the kitty with his cute little hat and pumpkin.

Isn't he adorable!

If you're interested, here's a quick pic of my front door with its spider trail and pumpkin lights!

Here's the inside of the porch, which to be fair, only me and hubby can see because I keep the light off so that the pumpkin lights show up through the glass (and then I have to fumble for the door handle and box of treat pouches in the dark when the doorbell rings!!!)

For someone who doesn't "do" Halloween, you "don't do" it very well, lol!! That kitty is super cute and looks fabulous in both colour ways. I have to say I am very fond of the ginger one, it makes me think of Arnie up to mischief ;) Your spiders up the door made me chuckle, although if they were real I would have run a mile, or five. Hugs xx
