Scenes from our Halloween House!

Happy Halloween!!!!!

Hope you can all forgive my lack of postings this month!
We are working on changing over
 our internet, phone and cable services...
and this is taking much more time than I thought it would.
Right now I am perched on a wooden chair at our
Starbucks...being grateful for their free internet service

So, since today is Halloween I wanted to
show you our Halloween House that the kids
 and I decorated this month.....

Remember our theme this year was
Edgar Allen Poe's poem
The Raven

This is the mantle...
I took an old book and double sided taped the pages
to the front of the mantle and then ripped the bottoms off

I think it turned our really spooky and deserted looking

Our specimen and potion cabinets

Raven feather quills...to write another spooky poem with
in case Edgar Allen Poe's ghost decides to visit us one dark night

A raven guarding it's eggs...

And of course we did our shadow tree again this year.
Somehow it grew out of control this year...I just kept
adding branches and a lantern that lights up at night

Hope you all have a wonderfully safe and spooky
Halloween Night!

And p.s..
Thank you to my little sister
for her guest hijack post!
She did a great job and I appreciate
her taking the time to put it together
while our internet is/was down
And yes the passwords have been changed....
