Here are some more of the Autumn/Halloween decorations in my home. I will be retaking the mantel pictures because the day I took all the other pictures it was raining and the pictures turned out darker than I would like. Enjoy!
I have a sideboard in my kitchen eating area (the sideboard is really an antique dresser). I always change out the teapots and items on the sideboard for the season we are in. I always put out this coffee pot, creamer and sugar this time of year. Apples are a wonderful Autumn item and this Franciscan set fits the bill.
I bought this wooden garden item at Michael's. I just love the color! I've decided to keep it out all year round and just change out what I have displayed in it!
I have collected green Depression Glass for over 20 years. One of my early purchases was a set of candlesticks. I dressed them up with Autumn candle rings and they look perfect on the table with the plaid, pumpkin placemats I showed you in the previous post.
Every home needs a little bit of French decorating and I've got this vintage flower tin which is in a black wrought iron stand. I took some silk leaves and plopped them in the flower tin and that was all this needed!
Over the years I've collected Longaberger baskets. I bought this Halloween one and I've paired it this year with a little bird votive candle holder and a rustic bark and twig bird house. I've also added a little piece of faux bittersweet.
What Halloween decorating would be complete without a cute little witch all dressed up in her Halloween finery and her friendly ghost and pumpkin! I bought these wooden items at a craft show many years ago and every year I display them.
Well if you are going to have a cute little witch, then you really need a little black cat! I've grouped the little black cat with a bright orange pumpkin and an acorn candle holder.
One year my youngest daughter, Jenny had pneumonia for Halloween. We lived in a little Victorian in NJ at the time. Our town was a small, close knit town and the town always had a Halloween parade for the children. That meant all the outlying towns would come to our town for trick or treating and then the parade. Jenny asked if she bundled up could she pass out the candy and I told her she could for a little while. To make her time of passing out candle special I purchased this beautifully hand painted tin pail.
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
