Happy Fall!

What a busy summer it has been!  But now, the garden is gone, our one and only dear son is off to college, and we are trying to get used to being empy nesters.  It seems like just yesterday I dropped him off at kindergarden.  Where did the time go???? 

With lot's of time on my hands I have decorated my house for fall and Halloween.  Would you like to take a little tour?
 Here is my cozy living room,  would you like to sit down and join me for some hot cider and doughnuts?  I made the Halloween banner on the mantle and will show you close ups later this week.
 This is a little corner in my dining room.  My DH made the clock many years ago.
 My Halloween tree.  I love this almost as much as my Christmas tree!  It makes my happy every day just to sit in front of it and look at all the little characters that live haphazzardly under it.
 This is a little doll I found at the Goodwill and made her a cute little "good" witch costume.  She was so grateful.  She was tired of sitting on the shelf naked!
This little vignette is in our den.  I love the Peanuts characters and when I saw this Lucy, probably 15-16 years ago, I had to have her.  You squeeze her hand and she plays the Peanuts song. 

Hope you enjoyed your fall tour.  I have my "Happy Shelves" all decorated and will share them later this week as well. 

Today we are meeting some friends and heading over to Liberty University (where Yngwie is a freshman) and going to the homecomming football game.  It's a beautiful day for football!
Hope you have a wonderfuld day!

I'm loving all of your Halloween decorations, especially that little witch dolly! I really need to get on the ball and start decorating too. The outside is all done, now I need to concentrate on the inside!
Happy Weekend!

Hi Linda~
I'm so glad that you visited my blog and left a comment so I could jump over here to visit you. Your Halloween banner is adorable...I love all of the little touches you did (especially the eyeball on the "W"!) You are an amazing crafter...your candy corn and pumpkins guy are adorable as is your snowman. Isn't Elizabeth the most inspiring person? Are you joining in on the peppermint tag swap? We have so much fun!
Visit door is always open for friends!
