The Witching Hour

Today I went to a Halloween Tea hosted by my friend Sue.  Sue and her family love Halloween and you can tell by the way she decorates.  I took several photos which I will be sharing with you for the next couple of days.  I love huge clock faces any day of the year, but check out how Sue transformed these for this special holiday.  I remember being with her at the flea market when she found this niche vase.  Isn't it something attached to this clock face?

 I think this next one is my favorite because I love black and gold.  It's a large clock face with a civil war soldier portrait and a small round mirror with a beautiful ornate gold frame.  Kind of eerie, don't you think?
 Here is another unique clock face with a skeletal image imposed on the center.  Aren't these cleverly done?  I bet these are easy to store too because they are flat.
Everywhere we looked there were busts of those who have passed on.  I love this gray and white map with the black letters superimposed on the glass.
 Here is the pet cemetery.  It's one of the first things you see when you enter the yard.  Sue even found a wooden box that looked like a tiny coffin for dolls.  She comes up with the coolest ideas.
The place was crawling with these huge spiders.   They were climbing everywhere.   Don't they look real?
 Then there is the guy on the left.  He just hung around while we enjoyed our tea.
 So did this ghostly couple below.  I'll be sharing more before Halloween.  Sue has quite the collection of girlish ghoulish things!
Thanks for your visit.  Drop in and hang around any time.

Those clocks are well done! The spiders really are creepy. I would find it hard to swallow my tea.

Bliss said...

Of course I would love to have tea with your friend. I pinned a sign, and I love the clocks. But the first clock, well that little center thing reminds me of a lil winky! What can I say.
