Missed the Cloche Party!

I missed out on the cloche party last week, I've been a little slow getting the decorating done, but here is the dining room which has a heavy cloche presence. Once again, I'm happy with everything except my WHITE walls. I really need to PAINT!

Decking the Halls... er, the Living Room

I am nearly finished decorating for Christmas, but I have not been happy with my photos, thus, no posting has been happening. I think the real problem is that I need to paint! All this white wall stuff is not doing it for me.

More to come...

Don't be scared.... c'mon in!

We are getting ready for Halloween! Meet Fat Rat, our doorman. He's mostly harmless, just gnaws on your ankles a bit.

Some of our mums have faded but others are just getting going:

Come inside!

Boo! Have a spooky October!

Random Fallness

Shiny stuff.... I can't resist it! I got a few minor things at Home Goods a couple weeks ago, including this little pun'kin teapot. I also recently bought the glass spire thingy to help replace some of my recently shattered mercury glass, sacrificed to the Harry Potter party cause a couple months ago. The picture of great-great aunt Esther has been in the family for years. Like, 10 years, since I bought the photo in a box lot at an auction and stuck it in this frame. (I don't have any pictures of my actual relatives, so I borrow other people's... sssshhhh)

Also, I guess these might be considered tacky by some, but I just love my little leafy window clings in my front door sidelights. I got some rats and bats for Halloween, but they must wait for Mandy to come home from college this weekend and help decorate.

I am partial to snowflakes for winter, so be on the lookout after Thanksgiving.

More shiny stuff! I got the pumpkin last year on after-Christmas sale (50% off of the clearance price) at Tuesday Morning, so this is the first year I have it out. I bought the green pitcher at Home Goods a couple months back, attracted by the shiny bronze-looking handle. I just recently bought the tureen. Look at that shiny little metallic knob! I also love the creamy finish and the texture of the pattern. Shiny stuff makes me happy.

What makes you happy? Have a good week!

Metamorphosis Monday - Spring to Fall

It's time for Metamorphosis Monday, thanks to Susan!!

The last couple days have been very Fall-like here, cool and rainy, which put me in the mood to rip out my dying annuals and replace them with a few mums. My foyer is extremely dirty right now from my tracking mud through it yesterday, but I got it done.



I love mums, they are happy flowers.

I got this beautiful Cinderella pumpkin yesterday. I just love these!

Have a great week, everyone!

Cloche Party Time!

Marty's long-anticipated Cloche Party is upon us. I am showing a few cloches I have dressed up a bit for fall with things I already had around the house. I have a couple of acorn tureens that are a perfect size to fit inside, and I also used a flameless candle with some small Dickens volumes, as well as a ceramic pumpkin. I'm hoping to get more ideas from everyone else participating!

Happy Cloche Party!
