Macro Monday Meets Monster Mash

It's Monday and here in the US it's also Halloween.  One of my favorite holidays since I was a kid.  What's more fun then dressing up in a costume and going door to door filling up a bag with yummy candy!

In honor of this holiday for my Macro Monday on Lisa's Chaos & 31 Days of Reflection I am show casing Halloween Ghoulishness.

Can you guess what this is?

This is a close-up of a Floormat that I purchased many years ago and decided it made a much better wall hanging. Who would want to walk all over something this awesome.
There is no artist listed anywhere on this rug and oh how I wish there was as I just love this piece and would like to know if there is anything else out there like it. 





Talk about "Scared to Death" this look pretty much says it all.  I edited this in Black and White for a much spookier effect.

Below is what this actually is:





















It's actually a Styrofoam pumpkin. The stem was chewed off by one of our cats a couple of years ago so maybe that's how the look of fear arrived on this poor pumpkins face!

For my last musical reflection I am going with:  Monster Mash by Bobby "Boris" Pickett and the Cryptkickers (don't you love the name of the back-up group).

Happy Haunting!

  2. I came here after seeing your name Ida - it`s also name of my 12 years old granddaughter, who`s photos I published few days ago in my blog :)
    This Halloween is quite strange to people of my age here but it tries to come but not very fast.
    Our schoolchildren have their autumn holidays in these days but it is not Halloween holiday :)

  3. I love that floormat. I think I would use it as a wall hanging too. Mr. Pumpkin does look far more frightening in monochrome.

Happy Halloween and thanks for the visit to my blog. genie

  8. Love the close up! It is quite artistic. It really has a tattoo feeling to it. :)
    I love those styrofoam pumpkins. I have two or three of those from years back. The black and white process is really effective.
