Pumpkins And Bats And Mice, Oh My!

 

Halloween decorating was a lot of fun this year.

*********************

Our fireplace mantle in the living room. h1Pumpkin topiareies that I made, probably my favorite addition this year.h2I scored both led candles and the witch pumpkin on clearance at Kohls last year a few months after Halloween so they were nearly 70% off!w3I repurpose our usual candles for every holiday by just adding ribbon. Cheap, quick and always adds a lot of holiday feel to every room. h3w1Bath & Body Works Trick Or Treat candles worked in perfectly.w2I added a little Halloween spirit to the kitchen as well.w4

Lovey’s favorite decoration, Mr. Pumpkin. He talks when you press his nose. He’s a pretty fun fella’ and I can see why he’s Lovey’s favorite.h4Our entry table all dressed up for Halloween.

I love being greeted by a table of cheer, whatever season it may be, when I first walk through our door. It’s always the first area that I decorate and the last one that I put away until the next year. h5w6I brought the wreath in that I made last year from hanging on the front door and found it a new home on the entry mirror.w5I was so pleased with our stairs. Cute and just a touch of creepy with the mice cut outs. Decorating our stairs this way will definitely be a Halloween tradition from now on. h6

Easy Summer Living

Summertime and the living is easy.

We have spent a lot of our time out on the patio in our backyard this summer. A new patio set that we had intended to get for several summers and finally have, has done a lot to draw our interest in that direction.

This particular evening we were wrapping up the weekend with pizza on the patio.
