Fall - Halloween Porches



I went on a walk to spy all the Halloween decor going on around my neighborhood.
I don't buy that many Halloween decorations, since my husband doesn't like them, he can have nightmares if  I place skulls or freaky pictures around the house, my daughter goes in the same line.  I've learned to buy not to scary stuff, but I miss the freaky, fun decorations Halloween brings every year!

As I walked down the street...


Most of the houses were dressed in a simple Fall-ish style, a beautiful wreath on the door, or some pumpkins down the steps.


The trees with so many colorful leaves frame the porches!


I've been experiencing porch envy for a long time now. So many porches, and I have none!


I love this sitting space and how neat a "shelf" was built to display those pumpkings on the rail.

I passed the back alleys...


More pretty homes...


Where the porches were nicely arranged with Halloween decorations. I'd say the effect was more "pretty" than "spooky"!



The crunching feeling as I stepped on the leaves...





While reaching one that definitively says "Fall" with its arrangement of the dried cornstalks...


The first spooky welcoming is given to me by this pal!
Its porch couldn't be lovelier.






The cobwebs give this one the feel I was looking for!


Until I reached my friend Gail's house! Cobwebs, checked. Freaky pictures, checked. Spiders, bats, skelletons, -checked!


I love all the details Gail used to create the scary mood!



Chester her dog, trying to talk things over with that rat.



By the look on her face, it looks like she is not very convinced.



Neither on this one!



The spookiest home in my neighborhood as I've seen!


At night, when the lights are on, I like it the most.



Just wait until Halloween night, when added creepy sounds will make more than one kid stay away from this one!


Happy Halloween!

I think we should introduce your friend, Gail, to my cousin, Deb! All of those porches are beautiful and I, too, have porch envy!

You have a beautiful neighborhood! I love all the fall decorations and the homes are just gorgeous with those front porches. We have one home in our neighborhood that really goes all out at Halloween. It's so much fun!

Nice ornaments, I must say. The design for the porch in one of the middle pics fits in with the square columns.

I want a house that looks like this, a house that looks like one on the suburbs. I recently bought a house I had it demolished because its style does not fit me,the price is cheap so I went for it. I just need a licensed general contractor and an architect to start designing for my house and your house will be my model.

My neighbors have an inflatible addiction. If it is made to be blown up (filled with air) they will display it.
