It Doesn't Feel Much Like Fall Around Here

Oh how I love the fall, especially Halloween but I must say I am missing "Fall in New England".  It just doesn't feel much like fall around here so I decided that I had to get busy and drag out the Fall/Halloween box to decorate the house.  Now that so many of the stores have all of the Halloween decoration out on the shelves I need to try to stay out of them; I always seem to find something new that I must have.

A new wreath for the door…
A new centerpiece for the table…

A newly decorated vintage tree…

And yesterday I received a wonderful Halloween package from Erin W. that contained some great new decorations:
HOE Halloween Exchange
Stitched by: Erin W.

Take a closer look at the fabulous pillow:
Designer: The MonkeyWorks
Design: In The Graveyard

Can you see the beaded skeleton? Erin, clever stitcher that she is, decided to forgo the white floss and use white beads instead (the picture on Erin's blog is better so be sure to pop on over and take a look). I shall prop this pillow up on the mantel in my family room for all to see. The cute ghost bell and Halloween plaque are displayed on the vintage tree. Thank you so much Erin for all that you sent, you made this an extra special exchange!

My exchange has quite a distance to travel so I do not expect that it will arrive until next week. I will wait to hear from my partner before posting pictures.

Your comments make me smile and knowing that you visited makes my day so thank you all.

Until next time...

Autumn is my favorite time of year but I don't do much in the way of decorating for it. I need a wreath like that!

Marie,

It must be a really hard transition for you not to be back in the part of the country that is prized for it's beauty in autumn.

I love the autumn chill. It is not quite the same here in northern California as it was growing up in michigan. Still, I a happy to be where temperatures grow considerably cooler.

Your new decorations are lovely!

I just love that skeleton. What a great idea to use beads. And I love all your decorations too.

I've missed getting to blogs lately and went down through a few of your posts and saw the trims in the one shop. Do you have the name of the shop? I'm going there in two weeks and wondered if it's the Tinsel Trading Company?
