I may have mentioned how much I love Halloween. If I didn't mention it before- I'd be shocked. I love it. Adore it. Cherish it.
My favorite time of year! I love everything about it. The crisp, cool breeze, crunchy, colorful leaves- it all screams Halloween to me.
I also may have mentioned that my Fiance works for the Department of Public Works. In crappier terms, he works on a garbage truck. This means he comes home dirty and stinky and and and....
He's become a great picker though! He will bring home some pretty useful things that he sees laying on the side of the road. Somethings are brand-spankin' new! It amazes me what people will just throw away!
The most recent find was a piece of art. Now, I'm not a big, typical art fanatic. I can't name artists by looking at a piece, I can't get down with the abstract stuff. This piece.... it's hard to describe. It's three dimensional. It's definately eye catching... it's quite downright disturbing actually.
Yes, this was brought into our home. He had plans to put it on our "Trash Mantel".
(He has nicknamed our fireplace, the "Trash Mantel" Rightfully so. The fireplace was free. You can see how I acquired it here. Most things we use to decorate the mantel come from the trash or yard sales. It's a fun way to decorate on a budget!)
Don't get me wrong. It would be the perfect Halloween decoration. It just creeped me out. Gave me the heebee jeebees.
We decided to donate it to the haunt we work at for the month of October.
We didn't even have the poor, creepy dude long enough to name him. I'm not quite sure what I would have named him. What would you have named him? ;)
Here is no-name...chilling in the barn of his new home. Maybe he can get some good scares. Better at the barn than at my house!
What unusual things have you found for Halloween decorations?
