I Am Enjoying Every Drop of Fall

Teddy is enjoying laying on the stone patio in this cool weather. See how she keeps her back leg sticking out? That enables her to jump up and run. You know, just in case a bad kitty makes it's way into her yard.



I am as decorated as I am going to be this year.


The stink bug invasion throughout the east this year has curtailed my usual bales of hay and corn stalks. I refuse to give them anywhere else to seek refuge.


I made this wreath from leaves from the gardens and my dried hydrangeas.


I put some witch silhouettes on the garden room windows.


Look at the perfect pumpkin the Blog Tech bought for me at one of the horrorfests he attended.


Click for a better look. My redware Halloween plates are on display.


The witches are lined up on the radiator. These are cast iron witch boot scrapes which I have collected over the years.


I can't believe Halloween is almost here. October flies by faster than any other month. I think October should have 60 days!

I totally agree! October should have 60 days! I'm still in the process of decorating and don't think I'm ever going to get it the way I want. I love all your witchy things!

Love the BT's perfect pumpkin!! Your collections are wonderful! My Sheltie lays with one leg out like Teddy, too. And her little pink tongue stuck out as well. Our dogs are our babies!!!

I love the way you decorate. The house looks great and fall festive. I will have to decorate my new house after we move in a couple of weeks.

October really does go too fast. I'm having a hard time keeping up!

Love the signs you have, and the Halloween redware!

Aimee Jeffries said...

I'm hyperventilating a bit, omg....I want to be a kid again so bad so I can go trick-or-treating at your house! The big lanterns with the beautiful scrolls...the stained glass and pentacle...*Gush* big time!

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Loved the decorations too because fall is the best time of year with the cool weather and wonderful colors AND pumpkins! Thanks for yesterday's posting on pumpkin pie cake - going to try that one once we're back home from our Maine road trip and the no-knead rosemary bread too! Christer has mentioned it on his blog as well.

Debbie said...

Well I have just finished catching up on the last three posts! You have been very busy my friend. God I love all the photos and the cooking is once again to die for. That spaghetti with the bechamel sauce is a keeper I am going to have to try. It's kind of like having whipped cream on top of your ice cream....you can't go wrong with that can you? I haven't seen you over at my blog lately. Have you become too popular??!! Just kidding....I noticed you have many followers now!! Good for you!! I have missed you though. Enjoy your favorite holiday....your decorations and your collections are crazy cool!

Your porch is inspiring!

I happen to love October, too, and especially Halloween/Samhain. It's my wedding anniversary!

Have a great time on your pilgrimage!

Your wreath is lovely! I should decorate soon. My house is off the road but my guitar students love when I decorate.
