This metal jack o'lantern is one of my more recent acquisitions. I bought it last year so I wouldn't feel obligated to carve a pumpkin anymore. I can put a light in it from the backside on the night and it's much easier to clean up when the holiday is over!
Yes, we have lovely 1970's -style orange carpeting in the entryway. The house is not that old. It must have been something the previous owner had on hand when she enclosed the space between the house and the garage. (I did not do a very good job getting the bits of debris off the mat before I photographed it!)
Cue the ominous music ~ The Front Door:
Door knockers of course!
Any other fans of the movie "The Labyrinth" out there?!
It's always fun when people actually try to use these knockers. They don't bang very loudly. Usually Reilly is the one who hears it first and then, of course, his barking alerts us that someone is at the door.
There are other things that get hung here in the entryway. For example, there's a piece of fabric - black, with glow-in-the-dark skeletons on it. I also have a very special beaded curtain that I put out there. But you'll just have to wait and see that another time ;- )
