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!



Looking forward to passing candy out to the trick or treaters this evening, as well as eating my fair share. Love the jack o lanterns and all the little ones in their costumes.


I totally miss my kids being little and so excited about their costumes. Did they have to grow up so fast?

Happy Anniversary to my Mom and Dad, who were married on Halloween 47 years ago. Love you guys!

Happy trick or treating.
