Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy reading about my busy life with my husband of 30 years and our four sons and daughter-in-law. We are now empty nesters and my blog is helping me through the journey. I love the Lord and I love my family. I also love to decorate and go to thrift stores!
Happy Halloween everyone! I just wanted to quickly show you our Halloween decorations this year!
I had fun making this black and white display on our entry way table.
This wonderful black and white diamond patterned pumpkin was the inspiration for this table. I found it at Goodwill for $2.99! Isn't it cute! Someone hand painted a plastic pumpkin and then put the cool studs at every corner! They went to a lot of work and I can't believe that they gave it to Goodwill!
At the same good will I found the cute green head little pumpkin man and also the cute web bowl. I later found the wonderful spooky black cat!
Isn't this black and white picture of a little town perfect for the display!
Here's two crows visiting next to a spider candle.
I love how it turned out!
I just threw this picture in! I was snapping pictures of the house and I liked the way you could see the candles out on the porch through the screen door. I also love the wreath on the door.
I found this owl two years ago. Isn't he wonderful. I think he is vintage from the 40s or 50s. He is really fabulous. I have him sitting on some scary books!
I added some fun Halloween touches in the kitchen.
I love to decorate seasonally on top of my little cookbook shelf.
This year I placed a neat vintage black, orange and green tray on the bookshelf and placed a bunch of cheerful decorations there.
I found these cute kitty tea towels at Ross.
This is a traditional decoration that I simply have to put out every year, it's a sweet picture of my four little boys all dressed up ready to go trick-or-treating many years ago. I have it on the right side of the kitchen sink.
On the left side of the sink I have a cute black kitty collection!
I love this light up spooky house! It's so cozy when it's all lit up!
Here's my kitchen windowsill display.
I love how it turned out this year.
This little tiny picture is a new find this year. I found it thrown in with a bunch of books at a garage sale. I paid .25 cents for it. My friend Shannon was with me and she said, "Sharon, you need to put that in your Halloween kitchen window display!" and I did!!! I don't know who these little trick-or-treaters are, but they sure look excited about their loot!
Oh, what's a kitchen without a curled up kitty at your feet?
Here's my two antique paper mache pumpkin lanterns! I love them!
This black house is so cute when it has a candle lit inside! The light shines through all the windows. I just love it!
Some fun things on our computer desk.
Here's my cute globe lanterns.
In the powder room I placed a kitty lantern and a black tea towel on the counter.
In this corner I put a neat beaded web candle holder with a black kitty and a framed vintage picture.
For the front porch I just used my fall display and tucked in some Halloween touches.
I also hung these cute pumpkin lights.
One of my favorite things is this old iron kettle filled with water, nuts and floating candles.
Isn't it pretty!
Greetings trick or treaters!
I like how this display turned out.
It looks so cute at night!
I love it when the candles are all lit.
I would like to wish all of you a safe, fun and happy Halloween!
