Many homes have the yards and windows decorated for Halloween. I found a few city doors that let you know something fun is soon happening, but are nor over the top. A few in the area change after dark and with darkness show their ghostly lights – I’m skipping those.
With all the autumnal decorations on houses near me I thought a simple approach might be nice. These are some examples of doors painted orange that I found on-line. I have changed my opinion and think these must be delightful all year long. #thursdaydoors
Today’s Blooms are from street art I recently encountered. We have already had some early frost and snow so the outdoor Blooms are pretty much restricted for several months. My thought was to move it inside then I remembered this beautiful space.
Walking down the street I encountered some beautiful street art. I have a lot of those photos from the sides of buildings and 30 feet tall. I took a lot of those photos while living in Alaska which got me started here.
This is my first encounter with it looking down. These are sidewalks painted by various artists. Most are at intersections and are walked on daily. Beauty is truly all around us.
I feel very lucky to have stumbled upon a new way to see flowers and all their beauty in a different form.
This is not the wizards door but the site where the author wrote the story. The original home is gone, but in honor of the author the city of Chicago has created a little bit of interest in the area. I threw in a couple of the neighborhood doors also.
Starting with some fun scenarios at the mall. A good spot to pose the littles and not scare them. Or just a fun way to decorate the outdoor area at the mall. Gotta love a big show of mums this time of the year.
It’s October and in some households Halloween had already begun. With a small change to these doors some are ready to welcome all the costumed visitors. As a child Halloween lasted, in my mind, at least 2 months long. First trying to decide on a costume, next pulling together all the components to create it. Finally being on an extreme level of sugar high for a month eating all the candy I collected.
With considerable restraint I offer up a few houses that have begun the Halloween decorations. Since I don’t know any of the people living in these homes, it may be all the decorating they do. I really like the ease of putting 2 uncarved pumpkins by the front entry.
