I saw a cowboy "Mr. Bones" in the Pottery Barn catalog. He had on the cutest outfit, similar to the one in the photo. I called EARLY to order him, because I knew he'd be snapped up quickly. Sure enough, they'd sold out of him. I went on their web site just to see if he was dressed in the cowboy outfit. He was NOT. So, I thought I could duplicate him. I saw this sitting skeleton in Grandinroad's catalog. I ordered him. Then I went on Ebay and bid on the vest (woman's size extra small) with fringe. I wish I had a better camera than my iphone for photos. I bid on the cowboy boots (men's size 10) and they fit his big bony feet. Finally, I bid on the cowboy hat. I lost that bid, but the guy who won backed out of the deal. SCORE!!! I am searching for a shiny tin star for his vest. I haven't decided what to put in his hands yet. I turned my lounge chairs sideways to make a comfy couch for him by my front door.
Again, sorry about the photo. I found this fence at an gift shop and knew I had finally found a place for my costumed Byer's dolls. I put down carpet grass with fake colored leaves from Michael's. I also found the three plaster gravestones there. I already had the black wire tree. I just love my little graveyard.
Here's my chuck wagon from the previous three parties. I filled it with my favorite Halloween friends and set it on my hearth.
You've seen my beach sculpture with different holiday characters. These are my favorite little trick-or-treaters.
I won't bring out the lawn inflatable, spiders, and webs until closer to the day. I have a 3' witch who sits in a chair in my sunroom. She'll come out next week.
