Boo! I Scared You!

This friendly little Halloween plaque invites you into our home...

The first things to greet you are the newest additions to my autumn decor. I fell in love and had to have this Longaberger basket, wrought iron cat holder, and set of placemats for my kitchen counter.

I loved the saying on this towel. Wild Child decided the bat looks "very mad."

In the dining room you will find one of my favorite fall pieces. My mom made this wall hanging for me several years ago. I {heart} scarecrows.

An Annalee witchy mouse keeps watch on the table.

As we head into the family room a spooky garland hangs in the doorway where soon our stockings will hang.

My mom made this scarecrow for me too. He sits in Wild Child's rocker from Cracker Barrel. This chair is the first spontaneous purchase I remember that I did not worry about where the money was going to come from. Dr. Hubby had been practicing 5 months.
It feels so good to put decorations down "low" now that the babies are older. The other night SIL came to my home. I kinda hoped she would compliment my decorating. The only thing she commented on was this candle arrangement...she said it "looked like Christmas." I think she is nuts.

I found this adorable owl at TJMaxx for $3.99. The bow in the basket is from flowers Dr. Hubby sent me one year for my birthday.

In the kids' bathroom I added these decos that I have had FOREVER! They love the sparkly garland.

I hope you enjoyed the tour. I found these suckers at Walmart. The box holds exactly the amount I need for the 2 little ones' classes. I am going to get a little scrappy on the box and decorate it up...stay tuned....
Oops I almost forgot our spookiest decoration of all...in the garage...

I found him today. No I did not kill him...I ran away like a scared little girl!
Happy Fall Y'All!

is that an evil little laugh I hear as I pee my pants?

OceanDreams said...

Yikes, I can't believe you took a pic of that spider, spooky and very scary. Maybe he should be left to be a part of your Halloween decor, just kidding! I like your decorations, turned out lovely!

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

EEEEEK! What is that thing? Is that a jackal? Or is it a horse?

Whew, you had me going there for a minute. I thought that was a REAL spider. Good thing you were just joshing tho', cuz I wouldn't have been able to sleep tonite after that.

JennyMac said...

your decor is so great, even the Spider wants to be a part of it. LOL.

LOVE all your decorations.

Kim said...

I was really, really, enjoying this post, all the decorations, until the last photo! I absolutely hate spiders. When I see a spider, my scalp tingles, and I can feel the little tiny hairs, everywhere, standing up! GROSS! I would have ran away screaming. I can't deal with killing them. That is way too scary.

rychelle said...

Krystyn said...

Well, I love them all except the spider.
