I’ve been noticing that this has been somewhat of a banner season for me this year. In other words, I have made a lot of new banners. Why stop indoors? Let’s carry a few outside!
I have a couple of giant pumpkins sitting on a bed of moss placed upon my two urns standing as sentinels by the porch steps. Now they greet you. “Happy Halloween”!
In case the kiddies ring the bell on Hallows Eve and have a bit of stage fright this old rake will clue them in on what they need to say.
I had to buy a new rat when I found this giant trap amongst my sisters treasures. Notice that my cabbage tipped over, the dirt spilled out and it wilted. I left it, after all it is “The Olson’s Dead and Breakfast Inn”. lol!
My friend, Joyce had more pumpkins than she could use. Between hers and what I grew I filled every little thing I could with them. I did buy the large gourd at Wal-mart.
I filled a rustic wooden wheelbarrow. . .
the birdbath on the porch. . .
And one in the garden bed.
my bike and birdie planter. . .
Urns by the garage. . .
Even my old shopping cart.
I added my pumpkins sign and one of my windows. yes, I collect old windows. Much to my hubbies dismay. lol! I plan to use them in an outbuilding some day.
Hubby hung the ‘Dead and Breakfast’ sigh.
And I hung the giant witches boot on the door.
Up went the ‘Harvest Moon’.
And a simple little orange pumpkin on a vintage plant stand.
Out came the witches hat.
And my fun black chandelier that I scored at an antique shop last year for $25.
Now here’s the best. . .hubby wired it this year so that it actually lights up. Love it!
So I think we’re ready.
Can’t wait to say. . .
And here’s the big picture on a beautiful Fall day!
Just have to buy the candy. How about you, are you ready?
I will be sharing with these fun parties:
