Samhain Approacheth

I know I've mentioned the Celtic origins of Halloween before, in the ancient holy day of Samhain (sah-wen), the eve of Celtic New Year. I may also have mentioned that for the past 4 or 5 years, I haven't really been into the whole decorate-for-the-holidays thing. Well this year, I've been inspired (duh). The autumn wreath is a Raechelle original.

I couldn't get a decent shot of the front porch with the flash, but they're all blurry without. So here's both. The clear but non-glowy one will give you an idea of what's actually there, and the blurrier, glowy one will give you a more realistic impression of the lighting.

Looks great, but I'd watch out for that Raechelle - she'll decorate you to death!

Ain't no such thang as too much decorating, mom. Bling that house up, sister-girlfriend!

(word verification of the day: "yamyjo," pronounced "yammy-joe." Would that be a sloppy-joe made from yams?)
