Hello.. how is your week going? I've had my boxes of Halloween decorations sitting in our living room for a few weeks and I could not get into the mood to put them up as it was still summer weather, hot and sunny. But today the mood finally hit me as it's rainy, cool and cloudy. I happily hung the fall wreath on the door and Dayle helped me hang up my ghost bride and wind sock pumpkin on the gazebo. :-)
Isn't she scary? I think she needs some stuffing, though.
Every Autumn I keep an eye on my Pin Oak tree - it turns a brilliant red before the leaves turn brown.. it's starting to turn!
The leaves are really pretty on this oak.
Zoom... the tree is 50 feet tall!
Our wild little garden is settling in for the winter.
There is one little 4th of July rose in bloom. :-)
And 3 white clematis surprised me by blooming so late.
Dayle hung up my paper lantern that we've had for years.. the pumpkin face is all sparkly. I added my crocheted pumpkins and other fun decorations to the table.
My little scarecrow that I made is in the twig chair, I have a little black cat sculpture, a scarecrow candelabra, etc.
My scarecrow holds a little vintage pumpkin... I got the 2 glass pumpkins last year and this year added a little glass one.
See the little fence? It's porcelain and the three little trick-or-treaters are also and I just love it. I found it at a pumpkin patch when we took our 2 granddaughters there.. before they moved.. 3,000 miles away. :-(
I was happy to see my crocheted pumpkins again... I think they look neat with my velvet ones I got last month.
My wonderful blog friend Gracie brought us a gift of 2 plants on the day we took her on the adventure to find Lost Lake.. wasn't that sweet?
We had fun at the BBQ at my older son's new house, our 4 grandsons love each other. I can't believe this is the only photo I got.. but they're still unpacking and decorating so I'll get more next time. They're having a big open house on November 1st, it's going to be FUN!
Everyone liked the potato salad I made to go with their tri-tip steak. I tried to make a daisy decoration on the top with a cut up egg, but it got a bit mushed. :-)
Dayle is making baked pork chops for dinner using Shake 'n' Bake - have you ever tried it? It's pretty tasty! And he's making fried potatoes with onion and crumbled bacon on top, and corn. Yum! I'm enjoying the cooler weather, it's almost time to fire up our pellet stove! I hope you are cozy and warm at your home. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
