I’d rather be painting but….It’s raining….again (or still).
I have all of this wonderful stuff to paint for our awesome Halloween decorating extravaganza.
Visions of creepy yet elegant Halloween-y goodness are dancing in my head. But no! Those orange dollar store pumpkins should be black! Those cheap flowers should be tinged with black and in their vases. But there they are, in all there red and orange glory.
The ceramic jack-o-lanterns by the front walk are full of water, not lights.
Aren’t they cute though?
All of my Halloween decorating has come to a screeching halt.
The entry table is stuck being a fall-ish wanna be. Items randomly put there awaiting their spray painted accessories.
The little thrift store chair vignette should have it’s spell book and potion jars, but alas, they are absent.
It’s a sad Halloween-less mess around the Hubbard house right now. And guess what? It’s supposed to rain for the next two days. All weekend….sigh….
I know some of you may be saying, ‘But it’s only October 2! Chin up, there’s plenty of time.’ You obviously haven’t heard about the time distortion vortex-y thing that exists at our house. Blink and a week has passed. Take a nap and it’s a replay of Rip Van Winkle.
Maybe the rain will break long enough to get a little painting done. Until then I’ll just keep adding to my Halloween Pinterest board and dream.
Are you decorating for Halloween yet? Care to share some inspiration?
PS I’ve been buying flowers over the past several weeks and letting them dry out to create creepy-ish flower arrangements. What do you think?
