"EEK!"

Help!  My house is under attack!  You won't believe the size of them! 
(Cue the scary music.)


Do you see them?


They built the biggest web I've ever seen right on my front porch!


I hope they don't ruin my new mums and pansies that I just planted.




Does anyone know of a good pest control service?


HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Just thought I'd share a few creepy crawlies with you as part of my Halloween decor.  I will be adding some lighted jack-o-lanterns as well.  For now, this will do.  My son already has his costume ready and it is SCARY!  It wasn't what I wanted him to get, but I'm glad he found something he will look forward to wearing since it is just one night of the year, after all.  Luckily, no one will recognize that it is MY child dressed up that way.  I'll share a pic of him dressed up on Halloween.

Have a great weekend. 
I'm linking to the following party:

Your little 'visitors' a so much fun! I just hope they don't start multiplying. Your spiders are scary but your hanging basket is 'scary good'. Love it. I had fun at the Scott with Kim. I've need to do a post, but I'm watching the GA game. Go Dawgs!

Man! Who knew spiders would looks so good!!!

Pat said...

Kelly this is wonderful! I love it all.
We used to really get into Halloween at the farm. We had ghosts in trees along the lane out to our home in the back pasture. The porch was decorated and inside too. J and I dressed up...he was always a scarecrow and I was a witch...we had music, too. On each Halloween we only had 6 little visitors, from the farm and neighbors. It was absolutely worth it! Happy memories!

OMG, I missed this one. I love it. What a riot. You come up with the cutest ideas.

Allison Shops said...

Halloween is the only time I don't mind spiders! I did a web made from black ribbon on the ceiling of our last home's front porch for several years. Had plastic roaches too!

PS: Finally I have more time to do some visiting sweet lady as we were painting the house and we're changing the window treatment, but I've fixed it!

Dawn said...

Hi Kelly, I decorate the outside of our home with spiders also. Every year there seems to be a few more then the year before.
I love the spider web! Your house looks great.

CAS said...

Wow, those are some mighty BIG spiders! Your front porch looks like a Trick-or-Treaters haven. Love your flowers. If our temps would ever drop and stay there, I could do some planting, but it seems to be taking its own sweet time.

I like your little bench and thought it looked good both ways. Hope you have a great day!
:) CAS
