Halloween ~ A Celebration!

Welcome dear friends coming by from A Fanciful Twist Blog to enjoy Vanessa 's Halloween Celebration. I am so happy to share some of my decor antics. This day has been dark and stormy....with wonderful moments of thunder and lightening....perfect for a day of festooning the house with Halloween decor....and I am delighted to share a bit of my folly...

The three favorite words of any child...

Squash...

Corn decorating the window pane...

Old drawer of spooky goodies...

Spooky...

Mantel...

High~chair full of pumpkin~head babys...

Cage of crows...

A silver~y thrift store find...
It is just an upside~down metal shelf...

Cotton print stem on baby~boo pumpkin...

Detail...

Burlap stem on a baby pumpkin in a baby silver bowl...

Acorn squash...in a cage~ola...

Green squash...

Leaf...
Autumnal entry...

Big pumpkin...

My trusty drop~cloth pumpkin pillow...

Butternut, danish, gold nugget, sweet dumpling, golden acorn squash~o~ramas...
Doing a cha ~ cha!
No wall was safe from Halloween festoon~ment~ism...

Layers...

Poor witch...nice shoes...

Nice of her to leave her bonnet...

Delightful millinery detail...

Pairs...

Even chairs can have a BFF...

Have a wonderful time lollygag~ing around blog~land...
Vanessa...thank you for a magical celebration...you are the hostess with the most~ess!
Smiles ~ Ramona

Hi Ramona! What a treat your blog is today. It is always a wonderful visit, but today you outdid yourself and I love it. Love all the fabrics, and little pumpkins. But I absolutely adore that painted pumpkin pillow you made! That is GORGEOUS! Girl you got it goin' on when it comes to pillows. I've been thinking about making a house pillow that is black with some cute not scary Halloween embellishments on it...hmmmmm....anyhoo.
Hope you are well. Your home is beautiful!

Hi Ramona,

I'm so glad your daughter is feeling better and back to work today. I'm definitely sending you a BIG plate of virtual Porcupine Meatballs and some delicious cornbread with it....ENJOY!♥

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. I get to go Saturday to a huge craft show with my friend, in Oklahoma City. It is called An Affair of the Heart (www.aaoth.com). It takes up six buildings at the Fairgrounds and is always fun. A girl's day out...just what I need after this last week.
