It's Halloween 'at Home'

My recent trip to Colorado kick started the Fall season for me. After enjoying and admiring so much Fall inspiration and beauty . . . I jumped right into decorating for Halloween and Fall after arriving home (forget unpacking and laundry!).

Half of my home is filled with the warmth of Fall . . . pumpkins, bushels of wheat, bundles of Indian corn, twinkle lights, and barren vines winding up staircases; and the other half is decorated for Halloween. As I grow older and appreciate the glories of Fall even more, I find it harder to share my home with Halloween, BUT my little ones LOVE it . . . and so it will remain a big part of my October decorating for many more years (smile).

I thought it would be fun to share a FEW Halloween decor photos from my home . . . 

~ Halloween isn't Halloween without candy corns ~
A few of my holiday favorites on display . . . 
paper straws, rock candy and candy corns!

~ I LOVE flour sacs, especially when they have prints! ~ 

~ Alex bought me this elegant bistro fluted pedestal bowl by TAG  ~
It's quite beautiful brimming with white pumpkins~
and ONE orange pumpkin makes this centerpiece POP!

~ I fell in love with this black feather wreath when I saw it! 
I knew the perfect place for it ~

 ~ Little pumpkins make a simple and elegant place setting ~

~ Burlap BOO banner
Another Colorado find at my favorite shoppe . . . Vandel Antiques

~ My favorite Waverly pillows find a cozy spot on our sofa ~

~ Although I have a large Folk Art collection, not all my pieces are displayed 
every year, BUT this one makes a debut EVERY year. 
It's one of my favorite pieces. ~

~ My favorite Colorado find . . . Velvet Pumpkins ~
Their tops are REAL pumpkin stems!

 ~ Another Folk Art favorite ~

I typically add a few Fall touches to my main Guest Bath as well. 

~ You can even find Fall inspirational reading material (smile) ~

~ and a petite pumpkin tower on the bathroom counter ~ 

Well, that ends my Halloween tour . . . 

Thanks for stopping by!
