Show & Tell: All decked out for Halloween/Fall

Join others for Show & Tell!
Show and Tell

All my Halloween stuff is packed up somewhere. So, I tried to limit my buying more. I started the decorating back in early September. Mike (SS) said it was too early! That it was "the season of Mike," and fall started AFTER his birthday. He's right, we always had his birthday 09/22, THEN decorated. He's birthday is the day after the start of Autumn.
BUT granddaugther, LauraJune, and I went shopping and I made a haul!
So, follow me as I deck the halls with Autumn bounty!!! (fa-la-la-la...)

Living room window with pumpkin basket and window clings (put on up by my little ones:)


Basket (Goodwill $3 for a HUGE trash bag full of baskets), with seven $1 each pumpkins (Walmart), one for each of my seven kids. Decided to spray the basket black.


Uno with spray painted black basket and pumpkins (what a poser). Throw, scarf, whatever you call it, is a $2 rug from Big Lots (I bought two).



Black metal spider on web ($1 at Just a Dollar Store), LOVE the jewel body and raindrops on it!


Black metal, chain skeleton body, purple glitter, kitty ($1 at Just a Dollar Store)


Pumpkin sign with hanging BOO letters ($1 at Just a Dollar Store).


Window clings on empty fish tank (waiting for hubby to decide what he is doing with this tank-any time sweetheart-hint-hint:), put on by teenson (thanks Tay).


Window clings on kitchen window, I had to have the frog ones! All clings $1 a sheet at Walmart, boy it was hard to limit myself! And decide, go cute, or go creepy??? Choices, choices (I actually sat on the Walmart floor and dug through all of them, then selectivly narrowed it down to three.)


Top of fish tank, $1 glitter pumpkins (one for each grandchild-accidently bought an extra-one to grow on so to speak;), $2 Autumn picks, $1 flower bunch-all from Walmart. Love the girl/boy vase and elf in this grouping. (See my babies!! Love my kiddos, and their kiddos:)


My Spunky-girl!!!

Happy Fall Yall!

Thank you for joining me!!!

Awesome loot! You did a great job on finding and getting all these pretty Halloween decorations! Your house looks all autumn festive. Your kitty looks like she's loving it. Such a cutie kitty.

You've done a beautiful job with your Halloween decor. The spider web is awesome. I also like what you did with the empty fish tank.

I enjoyed my visit. Drop by if you can, I have outdoor Halloween decor for my show and tell.

Blessings,
Mary

Those little pumpkins are so cute!

And a belated happy birthday to your "baby"! I know it must feel a little bittersweet with your youngest turning 18...but how wonderful that you have such a great relationship!

It was my husband's birthday today- October's a good month! :)

Love your grouping, we in the UK don't tend to decorate for autumn, although some do for Halloween. I had Christmas this week, you can see the explanation at my page.

Oh be still my heart. Halloween is the BEST part of Autumn. Love the metal cat. I want to go around to all the Dollar stores now! Dang.

Stop by my show and tell when you have time, I'd love to have you visit with me this fine day. Happy weekend to you!!!

Looks like you are al set to celebrate! Have fun!

Constance said...

What a haul! You have some great stuff displayed there! My birthday is Sept 18th but I typically begin decorating for Fall Sept 1st. In Texas, summer lasts forever it seems and I do whatever I can to try and get some mental relief! No matter that one year at the local pumpkin patch, we were running around in shorts and had to turn the A/C on in the car when we were done! The weather is finally turning a bit cooler here! Yipee!

What fun decorating. The cat cracks me up! Aren't they funny.
My own black cat would be a great Halloween decoration. She loves my dining room table! Bad kitty! Oh well I just shoo her off then wash the table good.
Thanks for sharing your fun decorations.
Have a great weekend.
