I have changed this already, somewhat. I decided to leave the canvas of the grands from this summer. It didn't come out quite the way I had expected. There is way too much green going on. But, it was only a random photo anyway. I just like how everyone was doing their own thing.
How is this for a hint......Seriously I didn't do this for the open house. Just a joke. ( Cute little chalkboard tags were on clearance at Pottery Barn)
See these little things holding the candles in the jars. I got those from my Décor Steals gift certificate that I won. I want to get some coffee beans and candy corn to put in the jars. I like the look of them even plain.
I forgot one thing that I got at the Country Living Fair.
The cute little fence around the chair. It's supposed to look like barbed wire. it had a different hat on it that I switched out for the witches' hat. The fence was from the bird booth that I showed before. It has two crows on it and a propped up shovel. The other thing I bought last year at the fair from a fairy garden booth. The chair, some leaves, the little bat hanging upside down on the fence. I added the little water globe. I thought it looked a bit magical. I had to shove all the leaves inside. Oh at the cute little back on the top outside. It's from Dotty Red from across the pond. Cute, isn't it.
Here is our little kitchen table all decked out with it's Halloween table cloth. I got this on clearance several years ago from Pottery Barn Kids. (The only way I can afford anything there) That's Piper in the background. Little Izzy has decided she wants to be a couch potato again. For the first time in a couple of years she is jumping up on the sofa again. Hope her potty problems don't happen there.
Another view of the cute tablecloth. This and the cloche are the only Halloween things so far.
I have lots more to tell you but will wait til the next post. I want to tell you about Mabel's school event. Also my mind is all a jumble due to my adopted son finding his birth mom. Not only did he find her he has been with her since Saturday evening. Someone from her family came and got him (she lives an hour away). But he has called for a pickup today. Don't know how I feel about this. She lives the life that we worked so long to protect him from. Yes, he is an adult but still child like in decision making and reality. Yep, mixed emotions for sure. So I will update you on them next post. Have a great new week. I must go and undecorated the house before the little home
