These are the old birdcages I bought at the thrift stores. I spray painted them all black.
This chalkboard was a frame from a thrift store. I took it apart and sprayed the glass with chalkboard paint.
A rat in one of the cages.
This pair of candlesticks was originally green and gold.
The ravens flew the coop!
The black metal mask is another thrift shop find. It's funny how many things in thrift shops don't look like much when you first find them.
This rubber cockroach scared the crap out of me. I would jump and shriek and see it two minutes later and do the same thing. I was in the yard by myself screaming and then laughing at myself over and over.
These guys are really ugly.
The "clock" was a silver tray thrift find which I painted with chalkboard paint.
I really like mixing black mat things with black glossy ones.
This metal tree is the brown and green one i showed you a while ago. I actually regret painting it. I should have left it the way it was because it really would have been great for fall. This tree taught me to look at things for a few days before rushing to paint them.
The metal witch hat was pink and purple. It looks much more serious painted black.
I like using white pumpkins with black objects. And the light green pumpkins like the one behind the cage are very eerie.
*Halloween Memories: As a kid, the worst thing that could happen on Halloween was rain or really cold weather. I remember having to walk through puddles while balancing my umbrella and trying to keep my treat bag dry. I also remember having to cover my costume with a big heavy coat and being so disappointed.
