It's Autumn!

I've started decorating!
It's a little early....for me, but I'm having friends over on October 5th, and I wanted to have it finished
I haven't decorated in a few years and it was like seeing old friends again.
All the Orange and Back, made me feel like a kid it always does.
It's not really done... I'm still searching for the "perfect place" for each thing.
Going through  6 bins of  "Stuff"..... (more than my Christmas decorations)
I realized I had to purge.... the things I never used and take them to the  thrift shop
where someone else can enjoy them.
It's Autumn....I love this time of year! The cool air, Grey clouds. Amazing
color and of course HALLOWEEN!

I love my FRANKIE treat bucket.

I love my Johanna Parker pieces! and my little
Pumpkin Scarecrow.

Cool vintage look....found at Target this year. 2pak
for only $3! deal!

Love the witches shoe... a great find on ETSY

the Raven nevermore...

Like always, this time of year, I've got Halloween on my mind!
I'm having friends over, the first weekend in October, and it's a perfect reason to decorate!
I haven't decorated in a few years and I miss it!
So, I pulled out all the bins last week, sorted through them (I have more Halloween decorations than Christmas stuff!) There was a lot. I purged and actually filled a box  to take to the thrift store.
Today, instead of cleaning, I surfed Pinterest, while I'm slow cooking Beef Tips for dinner.
And....watching my beloved Cleveland far.
I feel guilty.  They're playing the Baltimore... Ravens. I feel like I'm jinxing my team, while I decorate my little Raven, I bought a couple years ago. I decided he needed some sprucing up. So I made him a Fancy hat and collar. Besides, When I would display him on the bathroom counter, I would forget he was there, and get a scare every time I walked in.
So, He's all Halloween'd out now.
We're still losing.....maybe I'd better put the "Black Bird" away for now.
