~Ready For Halloween~

Happy Friday everyone! Are you ready for the weekend..I am and I'm ready for Halloween too. I've finished decorating and now all we need are the little trick~or~ treaters. On the mantel, in our living room is a small collection of pumpkins...... Some are pottery with little candles and my two favorites are the painted rock pumpkins, one at either end of the mantel....
I bought both of these rock pumpkins in 1991 in a little, little town called Nubieber, Calif. We were on a road trip to Alturas, Calif. where my husband grew up and we were just poking along and stopping at little spots along the way. I think this little rolly~ polly is so cute..he was 75cents..........
And I had to bring his little friend home too. I think this is a girl pumpkin and on the bottom she's marked $1.75. That was a fun trip and these little guys always remind me of good times. This little........
girl is new this year...found her in Lodi at a street faire, love her....
It seems I always show our coffee table. I always have lots of pictures displayed on it and this year just added some fun candles......do they look familiar? Yep, they're last years...just kept them in the refrig and they stay perfect from year to year. Happy days and hugs to you...Linda

How fun to have rock pumpkins! I do need to stock up on some candies for the little trick or treaters as there will probably be a lot this year due to it being on the weekend.

Hope your day is sweet!♥

Everything looks so festive and welcoming Linda. We live very far back from the street, so we never have trick or treaters.....BUT, I always buy my favorite stash of candy (you know, just in case!!!) Just teasing!

Wishing you a fun weekend.

It all looks fantastic!

I'm holding off decorating for Halloween this year as I'm still trying to sort the painting at my flat so it's great to share in blogland,

G'eve Linda ~ I so enjoy your decor. Where we live we don't get many trickers unfortunately & I miss that part of the celebration.

Happy PS weekend ~

My husband says did you buy this refrigerator for the drawers??? to keep your candles in? Both our refrigerators and their drawers are filled with candles. It is the best way to keep the special ones safe and reusable...especially in AZ!

Have a wonderful PS week ~

Linda, I love your decorating! Your pieces are so nice--I love getting little bits and bobs on my travels and then bringing them out seasonally. I have a wood carved santa that I bought in Estes Park during the trip out for my brother's wedding. He's one of my favorite treasures because of the memories he envokes. Such cute rock pumpkins--what a great idea!

How pretty everything looks Linda! We live too far out in nowhere to have trick or treaters. However,I am helping out at my son's harvest festival......so it will be fun. Have a wonderful Halloween. blessings,Kathleen
