It's getting to be that time of year for spooks and witches, pumpkins and gourds. Come show us your decorations!

Very cool kitty indeed, Stormy - what's it made of? Metal?

Thanks Sheryl.

Yes, Barb, I bought it last year at Joanne's fabrics. DSO put some stakes on his feet so that I could stand him up in the front shrub bed instead of hanging him. His metal held up pretty good. I am going to spray him this year before I put him outside again.

Stormy they have a hammered metal spray paint... I have never used it yet... but just bought some for the fence..that's the 2nd coat we are putting on... I am thinking it won't be a dull look

Wow, talk about pumpkinaholics!! That is amazing, but what a ton of work. I'll bet the critters love that yard. Just think about the compost opportunities too.

I can't imagine that only one or two people are lighting those pumpkins. It would take a team. Wonder if they are using candles, sterno, or mini lanterns?

For lighting them, probably!! I think about all of the potential accidents from them too, especially with kids.

They look really cool Allison!! Are there going to be those skulls sitting on them, or that Gargoyle?

each will have a gargoyle ... and we are going to hot glue some small tombstones on the front towards the bottom... I think Big Grin

we are going to hook the lights to our light show as well ... we always figure the more lights always makes the fog look cooler

and Randy has plans to make a fog machine cooler out of a garbage can & dryer vent pipe.... a couple of holes... and a ton of ice... cold fog stays low to the ground ... rather than floating up into the sky

I never knew how the fog was made. Do you use dry ice?

we don't... we have a machine that makes fog... put this special fluid in it and turn it on... it even has a timer so it will go off depending how we set it
