Happy Halloween!

Just a few more of my decorations... I think the rest of them will have to wait until next year!

Moda witches ~ some of my favorite of all time :- ) These were cut from a border print stripe and backed with an appropriate print of another cotton. Then I filled them with polyfil and plastic pellets to give them weight and make them free-standing.

An addition to the entrance of our home:

And a close-up so you can really appreciate the sentiment:
The hallway in its' almost-complete state:
Not a great picture, but the best I could get under the circumstances. The beaded curtain is made up of little glow-in-the-dark skulls and bone shaped black beads. Love it! The black fabric on the wall is covered in green skeletons. You may be able to see the broom I've left in the corner. I've also hung a (small) witch's hat on one of the hooks on the right wall. (Unfortunately, behind my rain hat and umbrella. I might have to move that.) There's a glow-in-the-dark skeleton hanging from a noose back in the corner too. And there are a couple of soft-sculpture ghosts hanging around. (What appears to be a light fixture overhead is actually a sort of sky light.)

And now, for the next holiday...

Buenos Dias de los Muertos!

(forgive my Spanish - I really have none!)
