Spiders..Spiders Everywhere!!!

The Chazman and I just love this time of year....well....OK.... we love all the holidays but Halloween is one of the ones we really, really enjoy!!! Just a time to have FUN and an awesomely spooktacular time. We went to the storage shed this past weekend to get our box of Halloween decorating goodies and discovered it was way way WAYYYY in the back so we will wear appropriate clothing this weekend to go digging for it. That should be a scary time for sure!!!! I did have some things here at the house so the Chazman made me pinky promise yesterday standing outside waiting on the school bus that I would have our Haunted house up by the time he got home. Of course, my sweet angel added a BIG hug and a "Pleeease momma". How could I NOT do it, ri iight?

My tiny coven of witches enjoy this time of year because they get to come out of storage. Have to keep them dry and safe in case they go visiting another home ya know. They wanted to take front and center in the dining nook and would NOT be sat down any place else in the house. Li'l Ms.Vanity Voodoo would not hold her mirror in her lap any other place I sat her. I think their mischievous behavior was so they could keep an eye on the Chazman while he is doing his homework. Perhaps they say a little spell to help him remember what he is studying.
I love black feather trees for Halloween. I made 2 of them last year, one just being an extra. I'm so happy that I was able to use the extra one this year thanks to my sweet friend Wendy over at Bliss Angels. I was so lucky to have known the correct answer to a question she asked on her blog and this is what I won........
Isn't she just the prettiest Li'l good witch ever? Wendy makes some of the cutest ATC cards. Li'l good witch made a perfect tree topper too. She fits in perfect with our tiny coven, don't you think? Better say YES or they might just put a spell on YOU!!

My Resyculbinz town characters got to come out of hiding and Eton has been dancing all over the place. Of course, Mr. Felix  is patiently waiting to "pounce" on the Chazman and take his Halloween stash once he has some. Hopefully, since Sabrina decided to sit with them instead of the coven then she can keep both of these characters in check!!
If you look closely you will see one of the "Spiders" hanging about. Chaz loves creepy crawly things so "gulp" that's the only reason that spider is there. ANNNDDDD...we couldn't have just ONE spider..ohhhh NOOO, there are several hanging about.

Another leggy guest decided to plant himself (hoping it's a him....we don't want no spider babies hopping about) in our Halloween tree. This setting made a great graveyard happy my whimsical side is useful..hehe!!!

It's great to be able to make things that your child finds amazing. The Li'l mummy I made for him several years ago. He stills giggles when we say what I wrote on the sign "Trick or Treat...Smell my Feet". The ghost faerie sitting on the tombstone with her black cat is one of my sculpts I made for myself about 8 years ago. My first attempt at flocking a cat...what a mess...a fun mess but still quite the MESS!! Most of you that come to visit here at the old Southern Ooak tree will surely recognize Goslynn the ghost child. (So much fun to be had with a old Christmas tree light bulb.)

Oh's more "SPIDERS" and I think this one will keep it's self in line a bit. Do crows eat spiders? Yes, I believe they I won't worry about this one as much. Maybe!!!
I love gothic looking settings so of course I had to have one here in our Haunted House!! I have to confess that a few of these items are new ones. We made a trip to the Dollar Tree to get a few supplies for the Chazman to make a shoebox diorama for school and well mommie got a few things too. Well...I don't usually buy things for me but WAIT...they aren't really for me...they are for our decorations that we ALL enjoy, so that's not so bad. The tiny votive glass holders and purple candles are new and the crows. The Chazman said last night that I might have to move the one from a top the clock because he was "creeping" him out. He kept looking at him thinking he was going to fly down and peck his eyes. Silly boy...what ever gave him that idea?
I think it's a perfectly good fair trade that the crow stays just where he is. I mean really, look at all the spiders hanging about.
I had almost forgotten about one of my Li'l witches until Chaz reminded me he didn't see her about. How in the world could I have forgotten about Li'l Whoopsie Oopsie. You remember her...the poor little witch that got stuck in her spell pot. Chaz felt she needed her very own spot. I really think he didn't want the coven helping her out of her dilemma...he likes her being stuck.....thinks it's funny. 
Yes...yes..there is yet ANOTHER spider web and spider. Aren't I a good momma....making sure Chaz has all his creepy spiders hanging about as he requested? I know they are only plastic but spiders really are one of my biggest fears. Funny ya think....just think about it....something so tiny can cause so much FEAR and I bet I'm not the only one. Matter of fact, I do have one friend that her fear of them might even be greater than mine. Her name is Jennifer over at Just Jingle and it seems that today she has been invaded by spiders too. Don't believe me...well just go take a l@@ksie for yourself. I can be brave about my fear...oh yes I can...I least I thought I could....until.......Chaz and I were sitting on the sofa last night watching GhostHunters and he made the statement that our faux spider webs might bring in some real spiders. I have been walking by and counting the spiders to make sure that the count remains the same. I so don't think that I OR the decorations will make it if I find an extra one.

Until next time.........Hugs and "gulps" is that a new spider???
