HI MARTHA STEWART...call me, we can discuss Halloween

Hi darlings and goblins, this is my fireplace at night.  I bought the lighted logs at home depot quite a few years back.  They make a crackling noise that sounds like scrunching tinfoil but more subtle. 

I found the books at the thrift of course and the other do dads were in the one of the 16 bins of Halloween/Fall decor I have stored in my garage.

This skull wreath was found at a yard sale for $5.00 and the log holder was found curbside.  Free

Don't be alarmed  but this arm is real .......plastic not the fake stuff...ha ha.  It gives me the shudders......biting nails and shaking.

We put this fence up every year.  It is homemade by my husband.  It is wood and plastic piping painted black.  We store it under the deck and just  put it up real quick around Halloween.

Spookiest house on the block but don't be afraid to knock...just made that up!  There are two foggers in the graveyard and billowy smoke will be blowing around on the Eve. 

This  is Timothy Winter...he was watching me from the window...I love him but he looks haunted.

If I had the cash, I would fly all of you awesome out of towners to my party!!!

Have a great Tuesday.  I am working today with the Seniors and it is supposed to rain but hopefully I can fit in an outfit post.  Goodnight. Dawn xo

Ahhh..I wish I was around to come trick or treating at your house, it looks fantastic. I love decorated houses, I miss that about home. Everything here looks fantastic..and yes my skirt still fits..which is good as I really loved the colour but didn't think it would fit, but tried it and it did, I love 'shopping' in my closet for things I've forgotten!! Hope you are well petal!! xo
