Trick or Treat

What a busy week this has been!  Saturday was my antique barn sale.  Monday afternoon, I put in over 1000 spring bulbs (actually I think it was closer to 1500),  and of course I had to get the yard Halloween ready for the little trick-or-treaters. 

Let me take you around and show you the decor that I put out.  But first, I want to thank everyone who came out, near and far, to my sale!  We had a lot of fun, didn't we?  I very special thank-you to my sister, Kelli, and my friend, Joell, who came all the way from down state to help me for the day.  And of course to my husband, Karl, who did all the hauling!

This spooky jack-o-lantern is made of concrete.  No carving needed!

My favorite of all are these rusty pumpkins (maybe it has something to do with the rust part!)  I found them a couple years ago, but if you like these you can pick out your own at A Rustic Garden. * Click Here*

The impatiens planted in my bicycle basket died by frost so they had to be dumped in the compost pile.  But just in time to fill it with pumpkins, gourds, and Bittersweet.

They were all homegrown.  Some by me, and some are from my aunt and uncle's garden. 

My old, wooden wheelbarrow makes the perfect fall display.

A flower pot stand turns into a pumpkin pedestal. 

My candy tub.  Sorry, the candy has all been handed out, it's gone!

What did you do to decorate for Halloween this year?  Did you do anything special to surprise the kids?  I'd love to hear about it!

Thanks again to all who made it out on Saturday.

Enjoy your weekend,

  4. Hello Jolene! I am glad that the lamp fits perfect in your home! Thanks so much again for stopping by! The red, yellow berry is bittersweet vine. I love to decorate with it in the fall! Wait till you see my indoor fall pics coming soon, I have it inside as well.
