Mosaic Monday: A Walk Around the Block



I thought I'd take you on a walk around my block.
It's still a wee bit early, but the Halloween decorations are coming out.


(Love the bones on the wreath and the black birds.)


I have a theory about Halloween decorations.
I believe people down here (where it is hot 9 months out of the year),
pull out all the decorating stops when the Fall arrives.
We don't have the wonderful color of the changing of the leaves.




But we can sure decorate starting at Halloween!





Mosaic Monday is hosted by the lovely Mary.
Each mosaic is different and each has its own story to tell.

Wishing you well and a JOY filled week!

Barb said...

Hi Snap, Love that "Fasten Broom Straps" warning! I am not even thinking of Halloween yet - at least I wasn't until I visited you here.

Jan said...

I really think your neighbors have outdone themselves with decorating! How pretty! It's my favorite time of the year, too.
Thanks for showing us that even in warm areas of the country, it STILL is Fall!
Have a great week,
Jan

What a fun treat to see Halloween where you are. Maybe this week I'll check out what's in MY neighbourhood. LOVE that giant candy corn!

I want that "fally" door!!!!

Mary said...

Love the crows & grapevine doorway~ your neighbors have the Halloween spirit :-)

Lavender Cottage said...

That's a great explanation why our southern neighbours deocrate like mad. :-) Very rarely do I see homes decorated for Halloween in my neighbourhood and come to think of it, Christmas is rather sparse too.
Nice mosaic,enjoyed seeing what you've shown.

LDH said...

Thank you for including me on your walk to see the fun decorations! They make great mosaics!

Hi Snap!! Oh, what a fun neighborhood you must have! I'm sure the children love all of these Halloween decorations.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Those are just wonderful. I love the vines twinning around the post of the porch. Have a wonderful week.

Meri said...

Very fancy decorating neighborhood, Snap. It looks like it would take time to keep up with the Joneses. Do you get lots of kids on Halloween?

podso said...

Cute! We don't see much Halloween here in my southern corner yet, but we will soon! Unless people are paring down this year.

I love the door decor in that first shot! What a great neighborhood you have!

Fabulous Halloween decorations! Uncommon sights around my part of the world.

Pondside said...

Wow - your neighbourhood pulls out all the stops! It must be so much fun for the kids.

Gardening in a Sandbox said...

Must be great to walk along your street to see the decorations. In our neighbourhood there is no many. Wonderful mosiac.

The Bodhi Chicklet said...

And why not, I ask? We put ours out this weekend too, the multiple skulls, skeleton hands, severed fingers, hairy spiders, snarling rats. Gotta let a little fun in your life I say!

Cezar and Léia said...

GOOD MORNING, SNAP!
I love your blog. The sidebar is wonderful to stroll through and I am going to hop around and look some more.

Your Mosaic Monday photos are fabulous. What a great idea to go walking around the neighborhood taking photos of everyone's decorations. You know, it's sad, our neighborhood doesn't decorate too much for Halloween or Fall. Christmas is another story, but this time of year, it's pretty limited. Oh well, I will have to pick someone else's neighborhood to go walking around. ;-)

I hope you have a joy filled week as well,
Susan

Both of those door displays are lush. I think you are right about warm climates, lavish decorating lets you celebrate. Thanks for sharing. xox Corrine

Your neighborhood is way ahead of us! It has been unusally warm here in NY so it seems to have taken everyone longer to decorate for Halloween this year. I'm sure everyone will get busy soon! Fun mosaics!
