Halloween Decorating ~ YEAH !!!

Yes, that's right.
I have spent the entire day
cleaning and decorating for
You may think it a bit early, 
but I have 3, 
yes count them, 
3 glorious days off from work.
So, along with designing,
stitching and 
finishing, I now have a 
house all decorated for 
my favorite of all holiday,
Halloween and a clean 
one at that !
Can you imagine my 
smiling face :D.

Other than the cross stitch
pieces, all of my decorations are
hand made by other artisans.
I have been collecting prim
Halloween pieces for years.
Can you tell? 
Hope it wasn't too much 
to look at in one viewing, 
but I am so pleased with 
how the house looks.
I will sit back tonight
and take it all in,
while I stitch the new design
I created this morning. 
I'd say it was a very 
productive first day off :)

BEAUTIFUL! Love it all.

What a great Halloween decoration! :o) Everything looks so spooky, just as I like it! Love the prims! I think, now I am, too, in the mood to decorate our home for Halloween (already thought about it)! And the weather here in Germany supports my thoughts... (temperature almost as if it is autumn already). Normally I start with it 4 weeks before Halloween, but now... ;o)

We don't get to experience real fall weather in Florida like other parts of the country. I was thinking just yesterday, though, that it would be nice to put some of my fall quilts out on display for some wishful thinking.

Angie Berry said...

Okay, let me just say that this post made me get up outta my seat and start decorating!! =] I'm usually done by now but we are still in 100+ temps and for 4 more days so it's been hard to get in the spirit. Thanks for the push that I needed.

I absolutely love all of your decorating! I love your pieces and I love how you have them displayed! Everything looks wonderful!

Angie Berry said...

Oh, and you have a beautiful home! Love your antique pieces!

I would like to ask you if you can tell me how is the sawdust your hubby make for you?
I would like to use sawdust that not make dust when is in the pincushion.

Thanks and congrat for your great work.
