Walking into Spiderwebs

A couple weeks ago, we went to visit the historic Leonis Adobe in Calabasas. I was expecting a rustic farm feel because the adobe on this estate dates back to 1844 and so I decided to dress the part with this ruffle denim blouse and a skirt with cactus and citrus fruit on it. What I was not expecting was the spooky Halloween decorations, which turned out to be a pleasant surprise, especially because I have been trying to get in the Halloween spirit this October! My favorite decoration at the Leonis Adobe was the spiderweb, complete with gigantic spiders that adorned the barn!

Unfortunately, we arrived a little late to the adobe, which closes very promptly at 4:00, so we didn't have a lot of time to explore. Luckily, the adobe house is not that big, nor are the grounds of the estate, so we had just enough time to see everything before they closed. While the Halloween decorations might have been spooky, I think the scariest thing was that one of the longhorn steers on the property gored and killed a sheep the week before! (The docents commented that it was lucky that it didn't happen in front of any of the school children taking a field trip to the adobe that week.) So, while I was scared of walking into spiderwebs, I guess I should just be thankful I didn't walk into the horn of a steer!

  3. A delightful cocktail of colors. The Halloween decorations look great. I'm seeing more external decor this year here in the UK. Thanks for linking
