HalloWeenie Beach Party !

ominous beach scene

Welcome to my HalloWeenie beach party
Jackooooo got lost
Who the bats am I kidding ?

When we just arrived at the beach....

I love Halloween, I love everything about it, the colours, the decorations, the fun stuff, the creepy stuff....... I didn't grow up in a HalloWeenie kinda country though, but still it was Northern Hemisphere and fall and all and the feeling was right. Now I have been here on the Southern half of the globe for quite some time now and eventhough I dress up the kids and we go trick or treating with some friends and some people actually do celebrate Halloween, it's soooo different in summer weather.

So this year already, I had a hard time getting into the groove so to speak, also I had (have) a little artistic block feeling and I started to make some guardian Angels and I love the Angels at the moment, so who am I really kiddin' here ? Trying to make myself go all Halloweenie this year doesn't feel "on the menu" Today I went to the beach to try and find more nice driftwood for my Angels, I did take little Jackooooo with me though and set him down in the dunes......He didn't look too happy, so I built him a haunted cave structure

.......still not too pleased. I went looking for some friends for him....and I did find some beaut bones and potential creeps among the driftwood

Before we got to know them.....

 just lookie here: I think he enjoyed that last little bit of the party the best...... I contemplated leaving him behind as a sort of abandoned art project, but his face just yelled out at me ! There's always next year !! Keep me, we'll make some great celebrations then ! So ok he went home with me again and I will add him to the other orange decorations in the house ;)
Happy Halloween y'all !!!!

see them creeps I found ?

To tell you the truth, it hasn't been much of a Halloween Feel around here either....just too hot!
I love that ominous grey beach scene, too....

Your driftwood beasties are grotesque....and so cool!
So glad you played along :D
Big hugs,

Joyce, your posting made me laugh! Very cute and funny. I think it would be difficult to "get in the groove" where it feels like summer... :-) Happy Halloween!!! Thanks for stopping by my party.

I am glad he came home with you again but also that he enjoyed a day at the beach!
Some of the driftwood does look creepier than Jack!
