It's almost here!

Today I looked all over the internet for some pictures of carved pumpkins since we hadn't yet carved any of our own. Needed some ideas. I thought I'd cheat a little and me able to show you something from all the wonderful decorating sites out there....Martha Stewart, Country Home etc. but for some crazy reason I couldn't seem to be able to save the pictures. They all wanted me to sign up with their I happily obliged (anything to get them) but nothing worked. I did find along the way some great recipes for Halloween parties that I probably won't have time to make.
I just like collecting them.
You thought it was just junk???
So my point being that the only thing I could come up with are some of my own pictures!!!! I know nothing like those crazy gorgeous designer photos.
Tomorrow will be the day we carve our pumpkins and if they come out good I'll show them to you. Don't hold your's not anything I excel in.
Ok more mantel shots. Sad to think I have to take it down soon. If I don't I'll be seeing Halloween decorations almost the whole Christmas season. A week before Thanksgiving I spend no time at home.
I've been known to be decorating my tree days after Christmas.
That's my time.
That's life in retail I guess.

More outdoor stuff!!!

I hope you're all ready for Halloween....candy bought, costumes ready, house and yard decorated. We used to stay home and wait for the kids to come but we live on a dark windy road and we don't get many kids anymore. I swear I would move to just to see the kids coming to the door on Halloween. So CUTE!
We're going to a small party at a friends house.
What are you doing for Halloween????
Trick or Treat!

I love your halloween pictures, Carole! Who needs Martha Stewart when we have you? I mean it!

We're going to a Halloween celebration in the village here on the island. Should be fun! Happy Halloween, honey! xo

June said...

Carole I would so much rather look at your awesome Halloween than any designer Halloween for sure! These mosaics are beautiful.
I will be handing out sweet treats to the little ones tomorrow night and I can hardly wait! I just love to see their costumes and visit with some of their parents. So much fun!

Great fall and Halloween images. I love fall so much, wish it lasted longer! Have a wonderful weekend!

Halloween got more popular in Germany over the last years but it's still not a real big thing over here. I like to do a little bit of Halloween decoration but we don't have any special plans for the evening. Have fun at the party!!!

Laura said...

Hi Martha...oops Carole!
Your autumn and Halloween mosaics are wonderful! Your photographs are just great... as always! I will be looking forward to your Christmas displays...of the shop and home!
Take care, Laura

Love your collage! Do you remeber those dolls that had two different heads and bodies? Then they had a really long reversible skirt that you flipped inside or out to match the body? Maybe that's what we need. Then you really could use some of your decorations thru Christmas! HA! Why don't YOU make us one! WOW I come up with such GREAT ideas!

Rebecca said...

Happy Halloween Carole!
Don't let the bumps in the night scare you too much tonight!

Rostrose said...

I also wish you a JHappy Halloween!

HI Carole
Your images are gorgeous.. and the decorating divine!! Clever girl!!

We don't really do Halloween here, hence the only decorating I did was the Dead Relatives.. haha and no Halloween party either... except the Dead Relatives visiting.. hahaha

Yesterday though, I did see a little ghost riding down the street on a scooter.. and as it is not common practice here is Sydney .. it looked quite funny.. wish I had my camera

Well.. You have probably finished your Halloween party by now.. but I hope it was a blast.

xx Julie

Hi Carole,

I have enjoyed seeing your images and they are better than any you would see in a magazine.
Your photos are always great.
Over in NZ we do not celebrate Halloween.

Have a happy halloween and weekend
