THE HALLOWEEN HOLIDAY.....TWO STEPS AHEAD


OK! I promised myself I would hold off until mid-October
to begin the wonderful world of Halloween posts.
I kept my promise!
And.....it was hard....REALLY hard!



I just love autumn decorating and getting ready for Halloween! Always have!
I gave my Halloween village to the Divine Miss M last year so Luke should have quite a bit of spooky fun going on with all of the little houses and figures he now has. My village will be a wonderful addition to the village Miss M started for him years ago!



I am working on my tablescape for the month of October and cannot wait to see how it all comes together! I took a few canning jars left over from Nick and Cat's ranch wedding and created some rather cute jars for filling up with caramels, peanut butter taffy and chocolate kisses!



Oh.....and the crows! Did I ever mention how much I love crows at Halloween! I have found such good use for all the scrapbooking paper I have left over from other projects! This is too much fun! I have a few other inspirational ideas up my sleeve so it appears I need another trip to Michaels! Are y'all getting out your pumpkins yet? Oh, acorns......I love acorns too.....good idea!
