Come on in! Welcome…so glad you are here!
I’ve been decorating for Halloween…would you like to see?
Stole the plant from the upstairs family room…it balances well with the height of the lamp. Found the scary ghost about 20 years ago in a Hallmark store.
Yikes! I was trying to take a little test pic in the entry with all the lights turned off…and the shutter speed was much slower than I expected. So I must have moved the camera before the pic completed. Isn’t this photo wild? Normally, I don’t share pics where “the photographer” ends up in the pic, but this was just too cool to not share!
In the Family Room…it was time to bring out the fall fire screen. Do you remember the topiary one that was here before?
It’s been chilly here…let’s get a nice, hot fire going. You can just see Max curled up on the ottoman.
How about a little snack? Just sit down right here, put your feet up…and enjoy!
Have some yummy ginger snaps and hot mulled cider. The cute mug is Fitz and Floyd and was purchased 25 years ago at a F & F Outlet. It’s two sided, witch on this side…
Jack O’Lantern on the other.
A little gnome with pumpkin, created by Dr. Tom Clarke…
Let’s go in the kitchen and I’ll show you what I used to make our mulled cider. I really like this mulling spice from Williams-Sonoma. I buy some every fall. It also makes a great hostess gift. Just put some in a kettle or pot on you stove when you have a party, and your guest will LOVE the way it makes your home smell. Each time I have a fall party or Halloween party, I always simmer some on the stove and my party guests can’t stopping talking about how good it smells.
You’ll need a little cinnamon stick for your mulled cider.
