Welcome to the 401st Metamorphosis Monday!
How was your first weekend of October? When the calendar says “October” I guess there’s no denying fall is here. Everything is still lush and green here in Georgia but I know that’s about to change.
This weekend I had a big update come across for my blog. After the update had completed, the slider that’s normally at the top of the blog was missing and the little tabbed thingy on the sidebar with links to the FAQ page, the “subscribe” tab and “Search” box, had vanished.
If you would like to subscribe for email updates to know when a new post is up here at BNOTP, you can do that here: Subscribe. Hopefully I can add the “Search” box back soon, I know how helpful those can be. In the meantime, the categories at the top of the blog are a good way to locate a specific post.
Decorate Your Porch for Autumn & Halloween
This weekend I added a bit of Halloween to the porch.
I decided to keep things pretty simple this year and not go too overboard with decorations, although the month is still young. 😉
Wal-mart Neighborhood Market has had the best prices I’ve seen on pumpkins this year, only $3.98 a pumpkin.
I picked up three on a recent shopping trip and scattered them about the porch.
I have a friend visiting this week and we’ve been old-house-touring, antiquing, and hitting our favorite haunts like A Classy Flea, Queen of Hearts, HomeGoods and Marshalls.
This pillow followed me home from Marshalls.
It told me that it needed to be on my front porch this year to greet all the Trick-or-Treaters who’ll come calling.
Do you have a favorite fall or Halloween decoration that you love to use each year?
I think mine is probably my fall wreath (seen on the door above) or the autumn “cardinal” fireplace screen seen in this post: Fall Mantel and Fireplace Screen
Looking forward to all the fabulous Before and Afters for this Met Monday!
Metamorphosis Monday is a party that’s all about Before and Afters. If you are participating in Met Monday, please link up using the “permalink” to your MM post and not your general blog address.
To get your permalink, click on your post name, then just copy and paste the address that shows up in the address bar at the top of your blog, into the “url” box for InLinkz.
In order to link up, you’ll need to include a link in your MM post back to the party so the other participants will have an opportunity to receive visits from your wonderful blog readers.
Please observe these few rules:
Only link up Before and After posts that are home, gardening, crafting, painting, sewing, cooking or DIY related.
Do not link up to the party if you’re doing so to promote a website or sell a product.
Do not link up a post that was just linked up last week since readers would have already seen that post.
