Here's our little grand daughter in her 3 Halloween costumes from ages 1 to almost 3!
We did decorate the front some... not a lot. We do basically the same thing each Halloween.
... and we did get quite a few more *trick or treaters* this year... mostly young ones between 2 and 10. Some of the costumes on the little ones were really adorable.
Our yard has a 6 foot fence and offers some sanctuary for the feral cats at any time, but we also left the garage door open a few inches to give them a safe place to be... not only during Halloween but during all the heavy rainfall lately.
Here's a picture of one of the big male ferals that comes around occasionally. He was here yesterday.

And of course I need to show you what the art (ceramic) department has been working on at the college this semester. They did several thousand red poppies to honor the Texas Veterans - a smaller tribute than the European one that was done to honor their fallen - but lovely and very effective.

I'm practicing carving on the vase... and just wish I had done my vines and leaves with a little more flow. As for the cat sculpture, I know his ears are big ( I call him airplane ears)... but for whatever reason, DH and I liked him and didn't want to cut them back...??
The other things are just me playing with clay at home...
