Sooo...onto the next project. I'm kind of in cleaning mode, but I also want to pull out the (few) actual Halloween decorations I have that I'm going to use. Maybe I'll pull those out first, then spend time packing away. We'll see where the day takes me--might get stuck in the garage for a bit--those Halloween boxes tend to be a time sucker.
ALERT--SPOILERS AND TRIGGER WARNINGS AHEAD (grab some kleenex)
......seriously, it's depressing...last chance to turn away....

Now yes, this is a super dark graveyard and yes, I did feel slightly bad about potentially spoiling the ending of the Harry Potter books for a new generation of kids. So I made 2 signs and put them at either ends of the sidewalk leading up to the yard.
Hopefully this absolves me of (most) responsibility. We'll see. So I left this out a few days before the actual graves went up (just to give full warning). Then last night I went ahead and put up the graves and the lighting, as well as the blow up spider (aka Aragog)
And at night, after some adjustment of the lights
