Happy October

Good morning friends! Happy October!  I just love this month.  It is such a busy and fun month in our family.  There are so many birthdays.  There are also visits to the pumpkin patch, apple orchards, fall festivals, a few craft shows and let's not forget trick or treating!  It's so exciting.

It's a dark and rainy day here.  Would be perfect to welcome October except they are predicting severe storms and possible tornadoes this afternoon.  Ugh...NOT what I want to hear.  Hoping the storms bypass us.

Darbee and I have worked to add some fall and Halloween touches to our home.  I thought I would share them with all of you today.


I love this old metal bucket.  Found it at a yard sale. My mom 
made all of the spooky folks inside as well as the pillow. :)

Mr. Jack stands in my hallway cubby.  Notice the small
block of wood with two candles?  My Darbee made that for me while
working in the workshop with Papa one evening.  She wanted to
make me something "primitive."  What a special treasure.

I made all of these little pumpkins.  I put them in an old wooden box my
dad made.  This sits in the middle of my coffee table.  Love it.

I love this little "shelf."  I bought it while on a girls trip to Pigeon Forge.
We visited the Hen where Ms. Betty Crowe works and I found it there.

I made these pumpkins as well.  They are in an old dough bowl given to me by my
grandmother.  They decorate my dining room table.

My creepy corner. :)  
This sits in my dining room.

I just love this little pumpkin pouch.  It is hanging on my hoosier cabinet.  

Sitting on my hoosier cabinet. 

Our prim fall tree.  

I hope you have enjoyed your visit into our home.
I hope you have a great day!

Until next time....
