Ready for Halloween!

Well I finally got the mantel decorated and thought I would post a couple pictures.
I love the holiday beanie babies and dig them out every year. I found the cute halloween
vintage banner at Michaels this weekend and put it together yesterday. It sure didn't feel
like fall much here today though.

It looks so pretty. I thought about getting all my fall decorations down out of the garage today and put them out....thought about...but didn't do it.

We are having a church swim party at my house tomorrow. I wanted people to see my fall decor....but at the same time...fall decor doesn't seem to go with swimming...

I love your pretty decorations.

What "joy" you brought to my day with your sweet comments when you stopped by my blog! :) Love your name also!

I love all the looks of fall that I'm seeing....your fireplace looks great! I love the candles in there too....I need to do that as most of my family has allergies and sinus problems so we have problems with burning wood.

Thanks again for stopping by and have a great rest of your weekend!

Looking forward to the changing of the seasons..we kinda "lost" the summer....
I am certainly touched and warmed by your thoughts and prayers.

It's all I can do to keep up with care giving and updates but it's so rewarding...stop in if you have a moment
