Happy Halloween!

I'm ready for trick or treaters! Hopefully I'll get lots of of little ghosts and goblins knocking on my door tonight ... as well as Hannah Montanas, fairy princesses and pirates. If not, well, I'm sure I can figure out something to do with all that candy.

I went shopping last night for an autumn centerpiece for the dining room table. I was going to get a dried flower arrangement or big candle, but ended up with this white pumpkin. I love ceramic and hand blown glass pumpkins. This one was only ten dollars at TJ Maxx Home Goods.

The October theme for my ATC swap group was "The Witching Hour." I received some awesome ATC's! The one above is from Deb at
Garage Sale Girl .

From Dogwood at
Pink Dogwood Blossom .

From Rachel at
Not-So-Plain Jane . Can you see Charlie lurking in the background? He was stalking the crepe paper pumpkin. It makes the loveliest crinkly noise when you smack it with your paw.

This one is from Cheryl at For Interest Sake .

From Jill at
Mindfully Simple .

Have a happy Halloween!

Sweet Pumkin, love all the cards. Where do you ladies find the time to do such creative work? Happy Halloween, candy looks good... I'll be the one looking like Raggedy Ann! Fill my bag full:)

Love the pumpkin. I have 2 orange ceramic pumpkins (they're bowls with lids). I never did take them out for Thanksgiving. Maybe I should put them on the table in the hall and fill them with candy... hmmm...

Our cards were nice, eh? I haven't got Jill's yet, but then I'm always the last to get them... silly Canada Post.

Have a great night. DON'T EAT ALL THAT CANDY!!! haha
