I started making new Halloween decorations at the beginning of September after I bought Martha Stewart's Halloween special edition magazine. I think her time in prison was beneficial to her when creating some of the great ideas in the magazine. Today I finished assembling my front windows. Jon did the cutouts—free drawn from pictures from the magazine and online. The green is from tissue paper, and we are lighting it from inside with a lamp.

I also put shadow rat cutouts all over the house. They're kind of cool. They would have been better on a set of stairs.

I've already started on some ravens on perches and some wooden bats to hang from the rafters on my back porch. Those pictures will come soon. Maggie is having a Halloween-themed birthday party on Friday so I did have a good reason to start early.
