More Halloween

This is going to be an unusually busy month. I have house guests for the next two weekends, then a reunion the following weekend and then my daughter has an event she will need me to help her with at the end of the month. So, after a horribly slow, boring, hotter than hell summer, it is time for me to hit the ground running. If I happen to repeat photos or you notice that some are blurred, it is because right now my life is a blur. But, I am still decorating!

I pulled out some of my Halloween signs.

And some of my Halloween jewelry.

I made more Turkish roasted peppers.

And some oven baked tomatoes. These will be used over the weekend.

One of the small signs went on the windowsill.

I've been placing mushrooms around the house.

I got out the vintage witch boudoir doll.

And the old witch cookie jar.

Some of my favorite handcrafted pieces.

One of the decorated shelves. You might have to click on the pics. I literally ran through the house to get this post together.

The witch boot scrapes are in position and my favorite window sitter is on top of the window.

And the black cats are keeping guard under the witch.

I do like all Your halloween stuff!

My brain sort of jumped a bit when I saw those plates shaped like maple leafs! Suddenly I remembered that we hade very similar ones when I grew up :-) Unfortunately I have absolutely no idea where they are now days.

Have a great day!

I really look forward to seeing all your wonderful Halloween and Witch stuff. I'm really getting in the mood. I have several "witch" books on hold at the library. I got out all or I should say some of my Halloween fabric, washed and ironed it and think I'll do a table something with some of the fabric.

As I am simplifying here and getting ready for bittersweet and pumpkins, baby, you pulled out ALL the stops. We are yin and yang.

Love the bootscrapers, LOVE the cookie jar...too much to mention, but I adored seeing everything.

sending love,


Fires in the evening and cuddling under comforter now.
