halloween decor

I know that many of you will understand when I say that I have a hard time using orange when decorating for Halloween. Each year I use less and less. This year I used hardly any at all!
I know you get it!!!!!

I think this is the most orange I've used....these two little pumpkins. And I have such a thing for these rats! They're everywhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Right now this is making me happy...A photo of my mom dressed up as a gypsy for Halloween. I found it in a box of old photos recently and I can remember her showing it to me and telling me how her mother made the costume for her.

That's all for now friends. On another note...Don't forget to leave a comment for a bracelet. You have untill Thursday! And on yet another note....Is anyone having trouble with Blogger???? Or is it just me????

Love your decor! I did allot of the same thing for the Paper Cowgirl retreat over the weekend. And yes, Blogger is driving me crazy!

just gorgeous. My little girl is 4 and very into everything gaudy and Halloween. I am officially sick of orange and purple (even the glittery stuff!), so I've sneakily been taking bits & pieces. Well, it has all been up since the start of August!!!! She was very keen on Halloween this year!

Love your rats! Too cute. My cat Dudley would have a fabulous time if I dotted fake rats around the house!!

oh yes, Blogger has been a nightmare lately. They were doing some kind of update yesterday, but it was still being a pain even before then.

enjoy your weekend

kind regards
Sadie :O) x

And, yes... I'm not liking Blogger's new way of uploading pictures!!!
Have a great day!

I love it all! I thought when I saw the first picture of the white pumpkin atop the white square plates any other pictures surely wouldn't be as good, but it all is!
