Wrapping up Halloween with a thank you and one last special collection...

Margaret from Maggie's Lil' Fixins recently sent me a box of Halloween goodies.  Her box filled my entire dining room table with all sorts of fun decorations. 
 She also celebrates Halloween with a fantastic party each year and her house is also decorated from top to bottom.
 Be sure to check out her blog for pictures of her party and decorations.  Thank you Margaret for all my Halloween treasures.
Josie loves all the bracelets that your daughter made. She's promised to share one with Emma.  Blogging friends are so generous. 
Before we pack up all our zillion Halloween decorations, I'm realizing that I never shared pictures of my living room mantle all decorated for Halloween.  
This is where all the fragile objects are displayed each year.
My collection of nutcrackers grows when I scour Target the day after Halloween.
A few years ago, my husband hung these windows above the mantle. This year, I decorated them with vintage black and white Halloween photos.
Soon, it will be time to think about what to put on them for Christmas!!
 Have a frightfully fun time with your TREAT-OR-TREATERS Thursday evening.
We have lots of heavy rain and wind in the forecast so I think my little ninja will be visiting just a few houses and then staying home to help pass out candy. 
 Thanks for hanging with me the last five weeks which were focused primarily on all-things Halloween.  
I say this every year.  Anyone want to come help me pack up all my Halloween chaos?  I have 20+ tubs waiting to be filled!!!

Hope there's a break in the rain for the girls to get out for a bit tonight. They're already talking about moving Trick or Treat to Saturday around here :(

You must be sad to have it all over, but you are probably already planning for next year. It was truly spooktacular!

Hope your little ninja has a wonderful time tonight!! Kim, that will be quite the chore, to pack 20 tubs of Halloween decor back away. But I know you and Chris and the girls LOVE this time of year, so it's worth the effort.

Your little ninja sure is sweet...she deserves a special treat! Love your windows for all the holidays and wish I was there to help you pack up the pretties. Enjoy your evening! Eat some candy...you deserve a treat, too! Hugs!

The mantle looks so great this year! The past few weeks have been a lot of fun seeing your decorations go up...have to say that I'm happy I don't have to take them down though. :P
Your little ninja is a cutie!
