I do not celebrate Halloween... but I certainly love October... I loved decorating my classroom with golden moons and cats caterwauling on fences, I loved fodder shocks and pumpkins... and going to see my dad over the years after he retired in the country I loved arriving to see what October surprises he had created...living there he had access to all kinds of autumnal farm items.. bales of straw... corn shocks.. you name it. and he usually had some kind of scarecrow that he created out of his old farm clothing... he had such a tender, merry heart.
Very reminiscent of his handwork! Found online..
So I guess I would like to share my October surprise...
the fall fairy has come and sprinked a bit of autumn around the house..
I exchanged my autumn arrangement seen now on the sideboard
for my pumpkin pie pumpkin who doesnt know it yet, but its days are numbered!! hehehehehe
because they go so well with my Thanksgiving dessert platesYes, in November my decor will only require a bit of tweaking!
I love to use my antlers that I have been collecting the past couple of seasons...
This year I added the smaller antler wrapped votives... all of which I find at Pier One ...
as well as, the mantel..
Welcome , little fellow...so enticed by the harvest table..my little omnivore couldn't help but hop up there to glean and nibble! You seem to be polite enough to stay!
