October is my favorite month. I love this time of year… Cooler weather, sweaters, pumpkin everything….
Wait… I live in the South now.
It’s not much cooler here, yet, but every so often you get a little hint of it in the breeze. I admit, I’m really looking forward to finding out what fall is like down here. Meanwhile, I’ve purchased lighter-weight sweaters and can still get pumpkin anything.
Anyway, it’s the 1st of October, and you know what that means: DECORATING!
My mom and I did a little decorating last night for autumn/Halloween.
Mom gave me battery-operated tea lights to put inside my cute cat and ghost tea light holders. I love them and feel safe knowing I’m not going to catch the fake leaves on fire, LOL!
She also had the idea of finding an autumnal garland of some kind to put on either the buffet or the mantle. I decided on one that looked like autumn leaves. We then twisted some colored lights through it (they’re green/purple/orange), placed a cute “Eek!” sign, and hung a Halloween-themed paper garland over the mirror.
The Halloween-themed cross-stitch was completed by me back in the early 2000s, and I believe was the very last cross-stitch I did. (I may be misremembering the exact date, but if you read my last post about not being able to see to cross-stitch for many years, that’s what I’m referring to.)
When I pulled out my box of decorations to get started yesterday, I was disappointed to learn the glass in that cross-stitch piece had shattered in the move. Thankfully, I was able to whisk it away to the local craft store, and their framers could repair it while I waited.
Halloween decorating would not be complete without cute knits hanging all over the place. Here are two of my favorites:
So that’s what I’ve done so far. I’m not sure if I’ll do more, but I’m really happy with it all so far.
Are you going to decorate for Halloween or autumn? Let me know in the comments!
Enjoy the month of October!
