Not So Spooky Spider Buckets

Wednesday, October 28, 2015

I don't do a lot of decorating for Halloween,
(practically zip)
but several years ago, I did assemble the cute Not So Spooky Spider Buckets,
filled with candy, for Mr. Ramblings' Sales Rep to distribute.

Did you know...

There are around 40,000 different species of spiders.

A "daddy-long-legs"
isn't really a spider.

Some spiders can live up to 30 years.

Spiders cannot die of natural causes.

Are present on an American Dollar Bill!

Hidden in the front upper right hand corner.

Spiders are found on every continent,
...except Antarctica.

While Spiders are usually known for their webs,
they can also weave a wind-sailing "parachute,"
capable of taking them high above the world below.

And abandoned spider webs are called cobwebs,
which are usually pretty spooky.

But not these super cute glittered spiders!
Not so spooky at all, huh?!?

I did find the metal pumpkin set, below, at a thrift shop a couple of weeks ago.
The largest one is 10" tall, and all three pieces were $10... what a deal!
They will be perfect to light the way up my porch
 for the little ghosts and goblins that come by Saturday night for treats!

Do you still have trick or treaters in your area?
Hope your Halloween weekend is anything but frightful!  :)
