Operation Infestation Nearly Complete!
Well, we're just about done "infesting" our house with spiders for Friday night's Halloween festivities. So happy to have it done - I think it looks pretty good considering this is our first year.
If you know me, you know I like to keep with a concept when decorating for holidays and parties and this year is no different. Thankfully, Mr. Limestone is a good sport and only partially resents me when I send him up on the roof to hang cobwebs or interupt his football watching to arrange a giant spider on our house :)
I planned on carving a few pumpkins but after putting all this stuff up today, I really didn't have the energy. So one carved pumpkin and one uncarved adorn the doorway. Both were spraypainted black and I really dig the glossy look. Orange is so last year. (just kidding!)
I made up these "warning" signs which I think are fun (and just about free, so thats always a bonus!) For anyone who takes the NYC subway on a regular basis, its sort of like the rat poison signs that so gracefully liter our great metro.
The only thing I have left to do is get a flood light to add some illumination as the regular porch light doesn't really do much.
