DIY: Great Halloween Ideas

The starter motor in my car was dead this morning, so I have to drive the truck.  Driving the truck makes everything feel different.  It is the vehicular equivalent of rose colored glasses…except it makes me sing old country songs and desperately want to go junking – which I think I might do.  I have an appointment this afternoon a few towns away and I think I am going to find the longest possible route with as many junk shops along the way as possible to get there.

When these moods strike, I need to be prepared, that is to have a few ideas in mind.   So I gathered a few seasonal things that I have seen around the internet lately that have me in this lovely fall mood.

Do you decorate for Halloween?  I do, sometimes, (when I have time) but I think I might go for it this year….depending on what I find today.   In the mean time….here are some of my favorite fall decoration ideas.  I’ll let you know if I find anything really special.

P.S. If you have a minute, say a little prayer to Saab fairies that the new starter motor will not cost so much that I have to re-think my treasure hunt!

P.P.P.S – Which do you prefer the Bright Painted Pumpkins or the Chalk Painted pumpkins?  I can’t decide for myself…I figure if I strike out on everything else….at least I can hit a farm stand and  fill the truck with gourds and pumpkins to satiate my truck adventure craving.
