Fall decorating favorites...

When I wasn’t in the treehouse or crafting with my girls over the long Labor day weekend, I spent time pulling out a few of my fall decorations.

Mr. Moon is my absolute favorite.

He was purchased from TJ Maxx several years ago. He graces the top of my hutch, tucked among the silk flowers, fall leaves and framed pumpkin prints.

The pumpkin prints can be downloaded here on the Graphics Fairy blog. Different collections grace the living room mantle. Apparently, I have a thing for acorns and owls. Excuse the "bright" flash on these mantle pictures.

These items will only stay out a few weeks before the 15+ bins of Halloween items come out. The scary Halloween stuff stays outside and all the "fun" stuff goes up inside.

These pictures were taken in 2010.
This year marks our 20th Halloween costume party.
Beginning in October, every inch of our house is decorated.

Inside and out.

My blogging friends are always welcome to our family-friendly party. Mark October 29th at 7pm. More details to follow over the next few weeks.

Someone else who loves Halloween is Meri at ImagiMeri!
She's even having a fall give-away!

Happy Fall decorating!
