Spooky Fun Around the House


Our weekend was fun!!! As you can see, we got busy and started on the outside too. I bought the rope web and Skeleton in the window after Halloween last year on clearance. So glad I did!



I got the idea for my new Header from another blogger, Jamie, last year. Her cute Site is called 'Right at Home' and you can find her inspiration post here. Thank you for the great idea, Jamie!
I added to my Lori Mitchell collection of trick-or-treaters over the past year. I LOVE her art!!!
I just had to buy this Dorothy because I made Sara the costume one year. I'll dig that up later and post it. Talk about adorable!!! I think she was about 10.







These 'Beware' and 'Spooky' flags are from the shopping trip Sara and I made the other day. What a fun addition. : )

This adorable witch below, I ordered from the Bethany Lowe Company. Gotta love her! She's just plain weird...no wonder I love her.



Yippee!!! Time for bed! Happy decorating. : )
