Hauntingly Creative


What's out and about this Halloween?

Come along and see some "hauntingly creative" yards and porches.



Pumpkins and gourds are the first sign of Autumn.




Doors of Welcome usher in the Fall Season around neighborhoods.



But Halloween brings the scary scene.



Here we have a bit of "skeletal" creativity with a touch of humor!



A couple of yards full of "boo-tiful" whimsey.



And others with a more frightful touch!



One of my favorites ~ a nod to "south of the border".



Same creative folks gave a nod to the Texas Longhorns last year.



"Hook em Horns"



I don't think I'd like to get caught up in this web!

What fun Halloween vignettes have you seen this season in your neighborhoods?

  1. What a lot of fun people in your neighbourhood seem to have with this holiday! There isn't much to be seen here, as it's a rural community and the houses are very far back from the road. We know we won't get a single trick or treater. In town I'm seeing more and more Halloween decorations, and on my way home this evening I saw several people in costume - probably on their way to a Halloween party.
    My favorite house in your neighbourhood?....the one with the happy ghosts!

  7. Are all of these in your neighborhood? If so, you live in a very creative neighborhood. They are great. Thanks for sharing. I've yet to decorate my yard & highly doubt I will since Halloween is on Sunday. But if the bug hits me tomorrow. I may just have to do something.

  12. Hi Sarah! What a creative bunch of neighbors you have! I had to laugh at the South of the Border & love the UT jersey/refs & cheerleaders...Texans do take their football seriously! Happy Halloween, hope the goblins & ghosts don't throw any tricks your way :-)

  18. Sarah, how fun that we both posted about outdoor H'ween decor. Wow! You found some great yards! I love that spooky Mex. band! The fence with all of the ghosts is amazing! I don't think they'll get many trick-or-treaters - I know I'd be too scared to go to that house! The Tex. Longhorns display is another great one. This one fun to see so much H'ween creativity. Thank you for sharing it on Favorite Things Sat. laurie

  23. Nothing in my neighborhood! They all leave after Labor Day. My son's area has many houses decorated beautifully for Fall. Mums, Kale, scarecrows and pumpkins!
    I do like that ring of ghosts. I have seen that around, cute.
    I do not like the webby stuff all over...can't imagine having to clean that all up Nov 1st!
    Happy Haunting, Sarah!

  34. What fun! There is sure a lot of variety. I love the ghosts on the gate. That would be fun at my house next year. (So would a million other ideas I have seen on blogs this year!!!)

    Our bicycling witch Drewcilla that I posted this year is about all in our neighborhood, but she draws cars from all over town. When people want to know where I live, other people say, oh she is the one with the witch on a bicycle!
