Hey all! Computer problems all last week prevented me posting. I hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas...Mine was fairly low key, but nice. Last weekend my friend and I did our annual visit to Weston Missouri!
Today the local theatre the Englewood reopened, and it was free! They showed "The Sound of Music" on the 50 foot screen. The inside is decorated like the Radio City music hall.
some vintage decor.

I got a cute rug at the Dollar Store with a hoot owl and the moon, for$1.00! The chenille pumpkin rug was a gift from my daughter last year.The Holiday Cookbook has a cool Halloween section.

This was a good day to go to the thrift stores, piddle around, bake my Cinnamon friendship bread...really pretty weather!A tablecloth I really love for this time of year -cannot find as many as I would like. I wish I had a whole set of Fall leaf dishes and glasses, but, you know how we are, can't pass up the cool odds and ends, either! I cannot find my crows from last year, I love this crow sign. I ordered some more crows, and hope they come soon!
I had intended to start my owl collection so that I would have a bunch of them before Halloween, but I did get a few. I had collected them for my daughter, but I saw a really cool idea at a bed and breakfast last Halloween, and it gave me the inspiration to collect them. The owner of the B and B had tons of owls on her side porch. Also lots of frogs. They looked really cool. Oh well, always next year I hope!

My favorite time of the year is mostly the colors, well - ok, the nice cool nights and the warm Indian Summer days, too!
My son pulled the garden today. It's sad, but just part of the changing seasons. Lots of fried green tomatoes in my future!

My favorite part of Halloween decorating is to haul out my many Pumpkin Head men! I wouldn't care if I had a hundred, I'd still not be able to pass one up!Some have black cats, some are hobos, but all are super groovy in my book! And much cheaper than the "Victorian" paper mache candy holders, etc. I cannot even afford the knockoff versions! Love them though! Blo molds are one of my biggest weakness! I buy them all year round, as you know if you are a reader!The back room/dining room is the "blank slate" I use to decorate for the holidays-because it's got the china cabinet, and a lot of big walls that I can change around without too much redoing. But, as evidenced by the multitude of nail holes in the wall, they are going to be a major PATCHING project when I paint!
Another favorite is my Spin O Rama game. (below on the Witchy wall-I found it and some other Biestle paper items at a garage sale a few years ago.
The kitchen was kept in a Fall mode, just because it is sooooo much stuff to move. I am still in the process of washing all my Fall Melmac, etc. to stock my open cabinets. I used this fall motif ribbon and some white doily shelf paper (vintage) and placemats (vintage) for shelf paper.
A few years back, Dollar General sold these fiber optic scarecrow heads. I love them! They really set the mood for Fall. I like to turn off the lights and watch him. It is so pretty!
Above is my "candy corn colored" fondue pot, and one of my Tang pitchers. Also a set of Autumn leaf glasses.
