Artistic Anger giveaway

Just wanted to post that Ron at Artistic Anger blog is having a giveaway to celebrate his 125th post and would like to add to his social circle, so stop over and check out some of his work and thoughts.

One of the rules of the giveaway is to post a picture from a Halloween past, so here is one from the Deadwood Cemetery!

New tombstones and other things..

Turned out a couple of new tombstones for the graveyard this year. Wanted to go old with a lot of weathering, kind of the crumbled look. Also made a new chained entrance gate for the center- bits and pieces of other props. Consolidation works best for storage. The Misses also got creative and while I was getting crows at the dollar tree, she picked up a couple of wine glasses and decided to make some flashy Halloween goblets.

Stocking up for Autumn

Started collecting here and there. Building a little stock pile of brews for October. Some I have had and some not yet, but my champion is still Buffalo Bills pumpkin ale. We will see if any of the others can unseat him this year! Angry orchard Cider did not make the group photo, but none the less is quite a good crisp cider and I would recommend it. The Hunt continues...........

Also had to harvest some of the pumpkins the vine borer let go. Can't complain about the outcome and still have 4 more on the vine to pick next month.
