My Favorite Month
I love me some October.
Yes, the boy was born in October. The 26th. That day was not only the anniversary of the day I become a mother, but of the day the hell that was my pregnancy came to an end.
Many reasons to celebrate.
Anyway, you already know that I broke out the pumpkins. Which, by the way I will repost, so please feel free to send your links if you haven't already.
Now, I'd like to show you some other October decor. Most of which was $1.
So that's my front door.. I thought about sweeping, but really, we are all friends here right? (I mean it's not like I am posting pics with a bunch of junk all over and a sheet thrown over the window.)
See the wreath? Oh, no, not a $1. Got that in the Pottery Barn clearance section a few years ago.... good deal, but more than $1.
I know. The ribbon. You love it. Me too.
I "designed" it myself. With hot glue of course. And, the Halloween glitter goodness? .99 Cent Store baby.
This is one of my favorite Dollar Store finds......
And then we have these:
Again with the $1. Target, .99 Cent Store... I love you. Cat is from OSH, a bit more than $1., but totally worth it.
The sign? $1. The Spider? $1. Oh, there's more. On the mantle.
Let's get a bit closer.. shall we? Cause the black glitter goodness...$1.
And, if you went by SITS today, you know all about this baby.
And finally, the piece that really says who I am.
off topic, do those things peel off the walls easily?
Your house makes me want to dress up and holler trick or treat right now! Gimme some candy!
But, I did pick up a huge bag of mini pumpkins at Sam's yesterday. I put them in this cool square copper bowl on my dining room table. And well, this morning, several of my pumpkins are missing. Madalyn thought they were cute, so she wanted to sleep with them. And in the night, one of the kittens stole one. I don't know how they carried off a pumpkin. But they did.
Oh, and my dad's birthday was October 26th :-)
Thanks for featuring me on SITS and making me a very happy Kansas Girl!
p.s. I love that my son-in-law's b-day is October 26...and Caroline's is the 27th. Even though it was 5 years apart, we were in the hospital at the same time. Tender, precious memories.
Good for Boo!
I gotta get to the $ stores more often!
I love your Halloween decorations...this is one of my favorite holidays to decorate for. We are having a party this year and my Brother-in-law has graciously given permission for me to hang a black christmas tree from his front living room and a coffin in his dining room...exciting!
I too am an October baby. Yippee for us!
Um...I didn't have time to leave Halloween decorations out for my mom to put up while I was gone. Wanna come do mine? (That totally sounds perverted, but I didn't mean it to)
