Friday Show and Tell

Good Morning! Each Friday, Kelli at http://kellishouse.blogspot.com/ hosts Show and Tell! It's lots of fun.
This week I am showing some of my Halloween and Fall decorations.
These cones that I made are just hanging in my craft room for the time being. They are waiting be filled with candy, mini flashlights, pencils, and a handmade Halloween bracelet, to give to my co-workers.
These little spooks sit in my kitchen.
Mr. Jackolantern adorns my dining room table. He is pretty special as he is the very first Halloween decoration that I bought after I got married. 27 years ago.
Frankie here, has to sit in the corner of the front porch! He is quite gruesome. Yngwie saw him at the store when he was about 4 years old and had to have him! He carried him around with him for weeks, this thing was taller than he was! Every year when I start putting out fall and Halloween decorations, he reminds me to get our Frankie!
And lastly, while this really isn't a "fall decoration", I love the way my house looks with the flowers blooming in the fall. I know most people don't really like marigolds, but I do. I love their beautiful fall colors and their pungent smell reminds me of fall.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week-end!
Blessings
Linda

Love all your fall/halloween decor.
It all looks so nice.

I love your beautiful marigolds. They do look pretty for fall.

Marigolds are so easy to grow here in Georgia so they are one of my favorites. I love looking at fall decor. Brightens up the fall season since everything is dying for the winter.

I love marigolds too and your house displays them so well; what an awesome picture. I love the little ceramic dish thingy with the leaves in it too--almost looks like a mini bread pan.

Hi Linda,
Thanks for the comment and compliments on my house. Now who exactly are these "people" that don't like marigolds? They're so cute, the colors are perfect for autumn and you can't kill them with a big stick---my kind of plant. I've got a few and love 'em.

Ann

p.s. Frankie's color looks a bit off, maybe put him in the sun awhile?

smilnsigh said...

Oh I love that beautiful front porch you are lucky enough to have!!!! Well, the decorations are all cute too. But that porch!!! :-)
