The weather was bad cold, rainy, grey so I needed something blithful to cheer me up and inspired by my American blogfriends especially Hootin Anni who is a Halloween fan, I also fell in Halloween feever and decorated !

The entrance

I bought this pumpkin and put a light inside

Some witches on the TV set

A spider on the living room table

together with a raven

and an owl

little cat witches a gift from long ago,

and a lampion

Outside flowers and a pumpkin so even when it's grey there are some colorful spots !

The only one I couldn't decorate as a Halloween cat is Arthur ! He remains white and white definitively is no Halloween color !

Now Mr. Gattino fears that I would dress as a witch the last week before Halloween and scare the neighbors to death.

My friends simply think that I am reasonably crazy as usual, because they don't do any Halloween decoration. Its not the use over here.

I was wondering about a Halloween cat, and then there were the kitties and then you put that picture of Arthur in just for me! LOL! Who says white isn't the new Halloween color? LOL!!!

Oh what fun you must be having I love your little pumpkin guy in the entrance.

Pamela said...

Great decorations! You could call refer to the cat as "Arthur, the Ghostly Cat" for the season - he's the perfect color!

I wondered if decorating for Halloween was something that you did over there? Last year, a friend of our son's, his family hosted a foreign exchange student from Sweden. They took her Trick-or-Treating and she had a blast! This year, they are hosting a girl from Germany and they plan to do the same thing! Arthur sure looks sweet!

I used to dress as a witch to give out treats. I got rid of my costume which was a long black dress I'd made,a store bought cape and hat. I wish I still had them. Do you ever discard things and then wish you hadn't.
I love the way you've decorate.

Terrorific decorations. I love that spider deco on the table most, for some reason.... I must have a crush on spiders.... *giggles*

...and Arthur.... give him a kiss from his admirer in Sweden :-)
