How the rich celebrate Halloween

This is actually amusing considering most of these homes are behind gates and the owners are not likely to open them for the unwashed masses, a.k.a. trick or treaters.   However, I wanted to share a few snapshots I took while walking through the ‘hood in Chicago earlier this week.

Nothing says Halloween like hiring a company to decorate your front lawn.

You know you have too much money when you chose to purchase cobwebs.

Apparently she is looking for the ruby slippers at the bottom of a planter.

Arrrgh, matey! I buried treasure inside this pumpkin!

A new way to recycle spa robes.

Grave markers and kale. Nice color pallette.

This is what can happen after a colon cleanse.

The wealthy prefer to keep their loved ones close. As in buried right by the mailbox.

Who doesn't have a skeleton buried in their front yard?

I love the creepy butler at the top of the stairs.

Last year this house had a huge spider crawling on its exterior. This year its a 20 foot Frankenstein. (BTW, his feet are chained down so that he doesn't end up being driven away on the roof of a car.)

Now those are some dedicated Halloween decorations – and to think, I was happy with my window clings!

Some people have too much time (and money) on their hands…. But I must admit it’s kind of fun to see what people come up with.
