Holiday Sister Swap & Halloween Corners of Our Home


My holiday swap sister, Catie ,
made me this great Halloween wreath. Take a close look at her Pumpkin People. Aren't they just adorable? I immediately hung it up on my enclosed front porch to great my Halloween goblins who are coming to visit in just two short nights. Catie also sent some really cute halloween socks that I am saving to wear on my last day of work ~ HALLOWEEN ~ and a bag of scrumptious licorice bites. MMM...thanks Catie!


This is the little bag that I made and sent to Catie An. It is made out of 100% wool felt, which seems to be my favorite thing to work with these days. I filled the bag with licorice and caramels with a bat shaped candy dish that was thrifted from a yard sale. Isn't Halloween fun?!


Our new front porch has really been fun to decorate this year. I even drug out some of the kids old construction paper bats and pumpkins from many many Halloween's past. What fun to have those old memories gracing our windows again...


"Punch It, BroomZelda"~ My sister, Susan, made this delightful witch for me several years ago. I can hardly wait for the first of October each year to drag her out of hiding.


5 little tea lights sit inside this haunted house, throwing flicering spooky images onto the wall while the Tales of Edgar Allen Poe wait quietly, daring some brave soul to open the pages...

Love all of your Halloween decorations. Your new front porch looks fantastic. All the ghosts and goblins that visit on Wednesday evening will be very impressed.

Love your wreath! Soooo cute! And your porch is fab--it's great that you are able to bring out the past decorations and celebrate all their glory in your new home :)

Loved your halloween decorations! I'll have to dig around and see if I can find the halloween vest (reversible) I made several years ago to wear tomorrow night when I hand out candy to the tricksters. (Wonder if I do find it if I'll be able to wear it or if it too has shrunk -probably an age-related thing don't 'cha know?
