Aaargh, what's this...
...a big beady eye coming to get you...
...belonging to Molly, our new kitten (6 months old) who came to stay with us yesterday. She's very friendly and affectionate and is right now sitting on my knee as I type.
This year's Halloween preparations are a bit better than last year's when I mislaid all the decorations (still can't find 'em even now), then found out the pumpkin I'd bought was rotten.
Just cutting out spooky shapes in black card is most effective. I particularly like the crows and there is a high possibility they will still be displayed somewhere after Halloween is over.
We also cut out some (non Halloween) coloured card shapes while we were at it...
These three birdies brighten up an otherwise plain and boring lightshade.
This is N's effort (aside from the cutting). I like the addition of googley eyes, jewels and sticky shapes, all carefully positioned.
The happy face on the pumpkin was drawn by A (I cut it out). He's quite friendly looking which is good - I'm not a fan of the gory and gruesome Halloween decorations which seem to be getting more and more prevalant as the years pass (or is it just as I get older?).
Lastly a flock of pigeons, just because I liked them flying in the sky.
Have a good Halloween. I hope the guisers have some good jokes and songs for you all.
