Getting Started with "Pooky" Decor

We use the word "pooky" because when Sydni was little, she would often tell people that we lived in a "pooky" house....she had trouble getting the "S" onto spooky.
OK, I like Halloween....and that shouldn't be a surprise to you since I like to scare the bejeebies out of my children...or friends' children...or husband...or dog...or anything that I think will jump. I'm sick, I know.
So, when you see my latest Halloween decor, it shouldn't surprise you.
I took regular cheap frames that I've had FOREVER...(do you say just like the kid in The Sandlot?)....FORRRRREVER!
I spray painted them WHITE.
Laid a piece of lace over them and
spray painted BLACK.
I think one of the frames has the colors reversed.
I used some scrapbook paper to make the mat.
I googled and stole....er, uh...borrowed the images.

I will hang them w/ my Halloween decorations...if I ever
get up to the "pooky" attic and get the decorations.
OK, just to let you know....the scaring bit is like a legacy in our family.
My grandfather got the biggest kick out of scaring us...
I was once so scared by him that all I could do was make a
primal sound....couldn't even cry or scream.
My Papa lives on.....because I now catch my children scaring each other
or some that shall remain NAMELESS...cough, sydni cough....
get a thrill out of tormenting the little Cooper boy she
babysits!!! Yes, this is the same daughter that SWORE she would
NEVER NEVER NEVER scare her kids.....tsk, tsk.
Are you sick like me or do you just do the fall decorations?

I love Halloween and all things "pooky" as well. Unfortunately, I'm not very creative when it comes to decorating so most of my stuff comes from Wal-Mart. Maybe I'll start feeling froggy and copy some of your great ideas!

Okay, so those would creep me and the boys out! They have been sleeping in our room because of the rain, wind and thunder....mind you not even a tornado excuse. Creepy pictures in the house, I would never get them out of my bedroom! :)

And Cooper think it's hilarious! He even tries to jump out and scare me, except he's too loud to be sneaky (:
