Simple Halloween Decor

There are wild and elaborate decorations around town and outside of town,but here are a few simple ones.

There are ersatz graveyards in people’s front yards, witches flying in trees,skeletons and cobwebs on mailboxes and Halloween light strung on front porches.

People are going all out.   A real Halloween Decoration Extravaganza.

These are a few simple decorations in Pittsburgh and from my sister Mary in Brooklyn NY.

Here’s a giant spider on the South Side of Pittsburgh

The Pumpkin that grew from one of last year’s pumpkins.

Sock Monkey and Boa

Why it’s fun to visit the family and rejuvenate for a new week!

 Anna holds the giant sock monkey up at the door, sporting the boa I knit with some yarn (Twist and Twirl) my friend Donna gave me last year.

Laura has a Mumkin on her Front Porch

When I visited last week in Columbus, Laura had a Mumkin on her front porch. (James,too)

A pumpkin decoration with the top off and filled with a chrysanthemum plant. Do they have mumkins where you live?  It was new to me. I guess you could turn it around after Halloween for Thanksgiving time so the Jack-o-Lantern face is in the back. I thought it was cheerful.  

When I googled the word Mumkin,  I came up with a totally different definition from the Urban Dictionary.  

Anyway it was cute and the mums were all still buds. Maybe it has since bloomed. I will have to ask.  What will they think of next?
