Witching all my best ghoul friends a Happy Halloween!

Miss Beverly, our lovely PINK SATURDAY hostess, has given us permission to show some Fall colors this week instead of our usual PINKS.

Our front door

Wreath that I concocted after seeing a similar one at Decorator's Warehouse for $169 !!

Spiders Galore
Love how they bounce and flit in the wind!

Also showing off my new door color ~ Billard Green by Behr

My antique hall tree that I bought from my sweet friend Debbie at Morning Star Antiques.

It is just the perfect mix of robin's egg blue and shabbiness that I love!
Grandson's favorite little witch hangs here, ready for him to come play!

Tried my hand at making a few Halloween tags this year.

Forgot to fill my Graveyard Dust bottle with dust before making pictures.
It would be no problem to bottle some of that icky stuff around here!

Mantle decorations

Didn't decorate as much this year, which is kind of sad because next to Christmas, Halloween is my favorite holiday and I have TONS of totes of decorations.....
but new little grandson will soon be here and our 21 mo. old grandson is also keeping me quite busy these days, too.

I'll be lucky to get a few Thanksgiving decorations out!

Dining Room candelabra has fun flickering bulbs ~
They are in the Halloween section at Wal-Mart.

They look really cool after dark!

Sofa table, pewter candelabra and tarnished silver in the family room.

Cross-stitched witch made by me this year.

My Glittered Boo Garland which I didn't hang this year.

Please visit Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for all of today's participants!

Be sure to have a safe and happy HALLOWEEN!!

I'm also linking to the fabulous Debra at Common Ground today. You won't want to miss her awesome Fall Table decor!

Also linking to my sweet friend Laurie of Bargain Hunting with Laurie for her Favorite Things Party here!

Bugs and Hisses!

The Pumpkin Patch

Recently we accompanied daughter and precious baby boy to a local Pumpkin Patch Farm and Petting Zoo.

"You want me to put food in my hands and do WHAT?"

"Okay, this isn't so bad ~ kinda like sneaking food to the dogs!"

"Look, they go like THIS when they bite!"

"Here ya go."

"Hmmm, you have horns!"
Sweet Sheep being checked out.

Even some Texas Longhorns
The baby calf was a favorite
Looks like mommy was having a good time, too.

The hayride

"Weeee.....this is FUN!"

The PERFECT pumpkin!

"Hmmm. Mimi says if one is good.....TWO are better!"

A terrific time was had by all!

And by the way, does anyone know WHAT would make a goat's ears curl up like this?!?!

Big Hugs,
