Photohunters: Bags

The photohunters theme this week is bags. My duaghter used to use this pumpkin bucket for her trick or treating bag. After she grew up, I used the pumpkin buket to hold the bags of candy I get for the neighborhood trick or treaters.

This year I've had trouble getting motivated for Halloween. I decided that I might not even carve a pumpkin for the first year ever. However, I like to have something on my front porch so the children know to come to my door for some candy out of the bags I always get. I decided that I could put flashlights in the pumpkin bucket with stuffed animals to prop them up for a funky jack o lantern. What do you think? Is it too weird? Just weird enough?

I used to put my candies on a bag similar to that.

I have no "spirit" of Halloween this year too. But I'm going to give out candy as usual. However, except for a pumpkin that I put on our doorstep, I have no other decor.

Enjoy your weekend.

It's weird AND wonderful - I love the way it looks.

Halloween has snuck up on me this year - no pumpkin and I usually carve one too. Hope you have some fun trick-or-treaters!

It's just weird enough... but mind that some trick or treaters won't think that they prefer those stuffed toy treats to candy! :D

That's a good use of the Halloween bucket.

Not going to carve a pumpkin this year? How could someone named Carver not be up to carving?!?!?!

Happy Halloween!
