I can hardly believe that is October already! The days are so much shorter and I have had to turn on my furnace (something I didn’t want to have to do til the end of the month). But what I LOVE LOVE LOVE about October is pumpkins. Becky, Gavin and I were running around doing errands, and decided to stop at a farm stand and buy pumpkins. Do you love the white pumpkin?  And how about those little striped ones, are they too cute? I decided that a little typography was needed to add to the decor, so I broke out the scrapbook stickers and went to town. I really {heart} the way this turned out.

DSC_2059Another new addition to the halloween/autumn decor at my house this year is this leaf garland with teeny weeny tiny white lights. This is on my fireplace mantel along with ceramic pumpkins that I bought years ago at Old Time Pottery. I found the garland and lights at Pat Catan’s and I think the total cost of this project was maybe $6.00. Decorating on the cheap makes me happy!

I have some other projects using scrapbook paper that I will post as soon as I have enough light to take good photos.  I have been really inspired to do Halloween decorating this year, and I am in good company. If you get a chance, check here for more really cool ideas!
