"This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affectations glow and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn."

Halloween - It's Time for Magical Things to Happen!

What?  You don't like how my street is decorated for Halloween?
It has been a noisy, dirty two weeks up and down Wood Street as PG & E  replaces our gas pipelines......  sigh....rumbling trucks, the buzzing of drills, the yelling of men.....  every day, Monday - through Friday - 7-3....and still two more (at least) weeks to go!

However, I did see they very nicely brought along their own *Witch* - so of course, I had to share with you.

Enough of this....time to share REAL Halloween decorations!  I took a walk around my neighbourhood late this afternoon and photographed some of my favourites. 

This "Skelly-Ghost" hangs freely, and the wind whips him about......I know he will scare people tonight when it's dark

Hmmmm...do you think the headstone refers to our Ex-Governor?

Even the Bay is in the *Spirit of Halloween*....the fog, drifiting in, like a Magic Spell, JUST over the centre of the water...I love when this happens!

Although we couldn't do much (or really anything) outside, my neighbours did decorate their front doors.  Here's my friend Athena's door.  (She helps feed our Feral Kitties.)

And my neighbours in #2

Here's my front door with my Autumnal Wreath.

 My "Halloween Tree" Center Piece

The Spirit of Marianne's Sjimmie, soaring over the magical night sky....sprinkling good wishes and yummy treats for every one of you!

Happy Autumn!  Happy Halloween!

  1. I love your 'witch', too funny.
    All the decorations are so fun and pretty and just right. Thanks for the tour!


  2. such a great feast of halloween decorations - and 'twas so nice of the ditch witch AND the fog to cooperate!!

    hoping the moon is shining at its mystical best over san francisco tonight!!


    p.s. thank you so much for the wonderful card, dear twin!!!

  3. I wonder if they pulled that Ditch Witch witch right off "Bewitched!"?

    I love the colors associated with Halloween decorating, and I also love other people's decorations, but I just don't handle owning decorative objects very well. I guess you could say I'm in the minimalist direction in that regard.

  4. What a lovely walk thru the neighborhood! Loved all the decorations (esp. the reference to the Gov.!!! Ah-hahahaha!!!!!)
    As to listening to the workmen....oh my. Many sympathies. I know when they work on the power lines here, even after all these years hanging with the military, I hear words that make me want to go tell their mamas!
    Beautiful photo shoot Robin!


  5. love the tour of San Francisco doorways and decorations. And your tree is really neat. and the fog. too bad about all that noise though. ugh. onward.

  6. lovely wreath. Learned how to pronounce that yesterday :)
    Construction in the street is terrible all the noise and dirt....... but it will only be temporarily.
    Waiting for you now........You can be here any moment. Isn't that strange?!
    hugs M
