Back in Action

I'm back! I was so happy when I heard that my computer was going to make it :) Just in time for me to share some of my spoooky Halloween decorations!

I am such a sun goddess and would be happy if earth only had one season...summer! But for some reason I have really been embracing the fall. I love the sound of the rain drops, the colours of the leaves falling, Thanksgiving (for those Canadians out there), pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks and of course Halloween!

I recently took a trip to my local craft store and found some amazing Martha Stewart decorations. This was my first year decorating for Halloween so I tried REALLY hard to keep it to a minimum. This was more difficult than it sounds; at first I went a bit overboard and realized my house was starting to look like a haunted house at fairs lol.

I have now developed this obsession with crows; they are so spooky for some reason. I will be buying tons more next year. I carved my pumpkin way to early so it has already wrinkled :( Oh well, that gives me an excuse to carve some more!

I hope all of my Canadian friends out there had a lovely Thanksgiving long weekend. I did lots of painting so stay tuned for pictures.

It looks great!! I was obsessed with crows last year and bought several (well, little black birds more like it, I got them at the dollar store! :)

Your place looks great. Personally, I love pumpkins, anything pumpkin, food, decorations, and colour. Until I started at university, I had an annual pumpkin party where all the treats were pumpkin related and the house was decked out with all forms of pumpkins. I kinda went crazy. Like you I'm a summer bumpkin, but the thought of pumpkins gets me through the fall.

Love your spooky house Jessie! And it doesn't look carnival spooky at all! I'm loving the webs and the creepy crawlers and crows! I wish we could carve pumpkins together again this year! Remember last year carving the fruit LOL??? we were so desperate haha!
