A Halloween Party and You're Invited!!!

Kimba is having a Halloween party and we are all invited. Be sure to go over and link your Halloween or Fall post so we can all come and visit you.
I painted the above little witch and the ghost with BOO below. My date on them is 1990 so these little guys have been coming out around the house for 18 years now!
Ceramic ghost has now come out and joined the party! I use a battery operated candle under it.
A couple of little spooky houses hanging around in my kitchen.
I think these little tiny pumpkins are just too cute in the apothecary jar.
The last three pictures are some signs around the house.



Hope you all have a fright-fully fun Monday!

Darlene, thanks for your visit on Sat. There are 10 items in the picture that I have posted before. I think two are hard to notice. Two black poodles on the hearth. And did you count the fireplace? You were close. I didn't post on Sunday after all, because I was busy with 13 house guests. All family, here for a wedding.

Your Halloween post is wonderful. I love your hand painted witch and ghost. Everything is so fun and festive. You are definitely ready for the big 'fright' day. lol

Hugs...Jeanne

Darlene, I never did post Halloween as I checked her list and my name wasn't on it. I was glad because tomorrow I am posting for Heidi's Halloween Swap. That is a big job in itself. I am happy to see you had a wonderful response to your great Halloween post yesterday.

Hugs...Jeanne

Totally heart the jar filled with mini pumpkins. Adorable!

Ashlie said...

Hi Darlene! Your decorations are so cute! I don't really decorate for Halloween but I do love fall decorations. Since we've only been married a year, I don't have much but I just added a sparkly pumpkin and veggies from Hobby Lobby to my collection. Yay! Hubby was with me when I got them and he said Hobby Lobby is like a woman's Bass Pro Shop. Ha! I think he's right! Have a great day!

Michelle @ A Happy Heart said...

Love all of these wonderful decorations Darlene!

I love all the Halloween decor...So cute! How have you been?

Debbie said...

Hey there! You made my day. I was browsing through your blog and voila there I was, or at least some of my design work. I designed the wood ghost with the BOO letters hanging below him. I can't remember which of my books it came from, but it was so nice to see that people are still enjoying the design. I loved all of your decor. By the way which craft show did you go to. I used to live in Oklahoma City, El Reno and that region. Just curious. Debbie Crabtree-Lewis
