This is what I WISH the fall looked like in Texas! This photo was taken at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, N.C. a few years back. No matter how much I LOVE Fall… Texas doesn’t have much of one. And with the horrible summer & drought it is hard to get in the mood. But, I did get out my Fall & Halloween Decor.
A new addition has been added. A BLACK tree with pretty glowing ORANGE lights. And on the tree I have placed some wonderful images sent to me from Kris Hurst. SHE is an amazing artist that LOVES Halloween about as much as my sweet Lulu (speaking of Lulu I sent her Kris’s Halloween Calling Cards for her Birthday & I thought she would flip). Go visit Kris (HERE) & her Etsy shop to see all the fun things she has to offer. Great CD’s loaded with images. Below is a sample of the cards I sent to Lulu. Go HERE to see her Etsy Shop.
Back to the tree & the cute goodies from Kris…
At the top is one of my favorite cards which I want to believe is myself… choosing which broom to ride. And the hat as the topper is Ms Elle’s hat for Halloween.
See how cute is all of that? And I did 6 soldered ornaments of myself & friends the year we had a “Witch Party” in that top right photo you can see the one of me in my hat next to the cute Trick or Treat Flash Cards from Kris. The bottom left has my purple glittered Spells & Potions sign above the Calderon that CACKLES as you walk by.
And on top of my refrigerator is this adorable black metal witch (her lantern lights up with a tea light), my pumpkin arrangement, Scrabble letters, & my reproduction vintage pumpkin cans. Also, I LOVE the card “Best Friends” my friend JoAnn sent me one year (it comes out every year).
My cute witch candy dish sits on the counter in front of my sink. She makes me smile while I do the dishes & I am soooooooooo proud that I haven’t eaten one of those Almond Joys.
My breakfast nook chandi wears her cute fall shades & has a beautiful garland wrapped among the arms. And my table sports a much loved tablecloth & has a candle, pumpkin bowls & leaves in the middle. See the leaf plates on the plate rack? Those are great for salads, snacks or desserts.
The vintage hutch has so many goodies on it & I LOVE the arrangement & those two cute cards I had framed. The artist is Susan Wheeler & I LOVE her art!
The hutch holds my pumpkin tea set & those stunning blown glass pumpkins Hubby bought me in a Gallery in Asheville.
Just a tiny part of my collection of cut glass salts, salt shakers, & cruets. And behind those is a tin plate with a stunning fall scene on it. This was a gift from my sweet friend Nan of Retired in Alaska Blog.
So, here’s another shot from Asheville & me pretending I’m there (I’m sure one of those houses would be perfect). And wishing I had been at Jenn’s Event held there this weekend… but, my home is decorated & I stayed home to spend my 41st Anniversary with my sweet Hubby. As I told all my gal pals… You have to know when to NOT PUSH YOUR LUCK with Art Events! Hope you enjoyed a little glimpse into my home. Do you have yours decorated?
