The Skeletons Just Keep Coming


Every time I go into town, someone else has done an amazing display.  Just look at the skeleton Pam put together at the LeGrande boutique.  She is truly grand.  Pam attended my party last night and let's just say, she's as much fun as her skeleton! 

 

Our gorgeous historic library has a storytelling witch with her pet rat. 
 


Gwen and Randy at the Avenue B & B have skeletons everywhere.  They really know how to haunt the place.
 



 The good ladies of the Brazen Bee have an adorable skeleton who is primping in the mirror with friends.  It was hard to photograph during the day through the window so I made his Lordship take me back at night.  Their hand-crafted products are amazing.
 



 I am not quite sure what Mountain High was trying to achieve with this one.  It just makes me shake my head, especially that dripping nose.

Oh this is what they intended. A sunbather?

Here is Randy of First Avenue B and B in front of the Whickerbill, a store he and Gwen acquired this year.  We caught them just setting up and came back later that week to photograph their window. 

 
Love that knife holder!

  
Ruxton's Trading Post embraced the old west theme with this hombre' and his rather malnourished dog.





Old Tyme Photography went old west as well.   Looking for a good time cowboy?

Border Burger Bar has a whole entourage of tiny chained skeletons.




The Mountain Living Studio Gallery has Van Gogh in the window complete with bloody bandage!
 
The folks at Lane Mitchell made their name sake into a skele - that's Lane making Jewelry!


Well that's all I have for now.   When I wander into Manitou next, I am sure to find more!

  2. Love the Van Gogh skelly, the saloon hall skelly and her garter on that bony leg, and the Trading Post "high plains drifter" skelly -- so THAT'S what happened to Clint Eastwood!

    1. This is our first year, as a community, to host a skeleton craze!

  6. These are hysterical! And that one in the last post smoking a fatty? Priceless. I wished I lived in Manitou. :)

    1. It's an odd little community full of eccentrics. His Lordship and I like to say we are the most boring people who live here.
