Silver Tip Artificial Tree Update

Pottery Barn is now selling artificial Silver Tip 
Christmas trees!!!
Remember back in 2012 when their Christmas book 
was filled with real Silver Tip Christmas Trees?
I had a post about HERE
Here are a few pics of those trees.

Don't you just love the way they 
really highlight all the dangling ornaments
between the layers of branches?
Now you can own a 6' tall 
pre-lit faux silver tip of your very own
right now from Pottery Barn for $599.00.
Wow, a bit pricey but still a cool idea.
Thanks for stopping by
and happy hunting!

Halloween Night

Halloween night was a huge success!
Especially with our new addition, 
the werewolf from Homedepot.
We called him Beauregard. 
He howled and growled, his eyes glowed green
and his head swung from side to side as
his jaw opened and closed. He was a real
crowd pleaser and posed for many pictures.
Our witch Hazel is voice activated 
just not very sensitive. 
she only startled the louder trick or treaters. 
Her head and arms move from side to side 
and her mouth opens as she speaks,
inviting kids to have some of her homemade candy,
and her eyes glow red.
Our host Dracula is static with no special effects but has 
been captured in many photos and is quite popular.  
He's been around the longest 
found at Sam's Club on clearance eight or nine years ago.
I've overheard kids call our house "The Dracula House"
I repainted his face because I hated the thick black
airbrushed lines he had from the manufacturer. 
The crowds started off slow and lite 
between 6:00 & 6:30

However after that, they started to come in waves .
Our Dutch door amazed the kids 
and many parents too!
Something they've never seen before.

Our candy reserves started to dwindle around 8:15 
I had to make an emergency run to our local
 Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market for more 
fun size chocolate bars 
as Sam continued handing out candy. 

By about 8:36 we had 570 trick or treaters
I took over for a while.
This year Vegas had imposed a curfew that 9:00 
was the cutoff for trick or treating.
And by 9:05 we handed out candy 
to our 615th and last treater.
It truly was a wild, woolly and fun night!
Thanks for stopping by and
Happy Haunting!
