halloweenDayM10_31

there’s nothing quite like bret’s yard in october.

halloweenDayL10_31

(except of course for december)

halloweenDayK10_31

let’s take a little walk, shall we? and don’t hog the middle of the path, there . . .

halloweenDay10_31

you have to take your turn on the edge, too.

halloweenDayJ10_31

i know it’s grisly—but hey, i didn’t put it there!

halloweenDayH10_31

i’m just an innocent onlooker, like you.

halloweenDayF10_31

(cue in slasher theme from psycho)

halloweenDayE10_31

you have to get past these two ladies to get onto the “safety” of the porch

halloweenDayC10_31

only to find out then that it’s not at all as safe as it seems.

halloweenDayB10_31

plan B: scoot down the front walk and outside the fence, where i’m back in full view of our own house

halloweenDayT10_31

(i’m ignoring those feet rising up from the earth)

halloweenDayQ10_31

and this “work” bench—it looks eerily like a butcher’s block . . .

halloweenDayN10_31

AH-AH-AAAAH!

halloweenDayS10_31

seriously, where does bret find all this stuff?? i mean, skull finials for the fencing?

halloweenDayU10_31

no wonder this guy keeled over.

halloweenDayO10_31

this gruesome crew is not making me feel comfortable at all; maybe i should head home . . .

halloweenDayV10_31

where i can view the tableau from the safety of my study.

halloweenDayR10_31

but wait, there’s more. we haven’t seen it at night yet.

halloweenNightF10_31

it’s a completely different look under the influence of lighting.

halloweenNightH10_31

so let’s take another turn around the bone yard

halloweenNightE10_31

MWAH-HA-ha-ha!!

halloweenNightG10_31

lok at them; they’re positively grinning with snide delight.

halloweenNightD10_31

i inched around these two truly creepy critters

halloweenNightC10_31

halloweenNightB10_31

we’re almost there, i promise . . .

halloweenNightA10_31

  1. Yes, Happy Halloween!! Thank you SO much for sharing Bret’s wonderfully creepy decorations. Halloween is at the top of my favorite holidays list, and as great as the pictures are I bet the scene is awesome in person! In the neighborhood that we used to live in we had a neighbor that went all out like this each year. I never tired of walking past their yard at night. Such is the spirit 🙂

  2. I’m so glad Bret was up to doing his fantastic display again this year. Thank you for posting these great pictures, Anne.

    Happy Halloween to my KS family.

  3. Thanks for the update. I was just wondering last night if your neighbor was up and running this year. I am glad he is feeling well.

  4. Oh, how I’ve been waiting!
    My two favorite posts of the year – Rhinebeck and Halloween (love Brett’s Christmas decor too).
    Thanks Anne! Your narrative was eerily perfect. Happy Halloween!

  5. I can only imagine that Bret is the kindest and most fun person – what does he do about trick-or-treating itty-bitties who are afraid of the decorations?

  6. Fabulous display, that Bret – he doesn’t disappoint, does he? Please tell him how much we all enjoy and appreciate his work. Happy Hallowe’en to you all.

  7. OMG! I look forward to this post every year. Never a dull moment in Knitspot Street! This house should get a prize!’ always lovely to read you, Ann.

  8. I was reading yesterday’s post and thinking, “Darn, we won’t get to see if Bret is back to spook us.” Wrong. He is, and he has. Thanks for the spooky return to childhood, y’all.

  9. so glad Bret was up for decorating! i bet it’s extra spooky in person! thanks for sharing Bret and Connie
