A Whole Month of Halloween Fun!





Rain, rain and more rain did not keep Kelly and I from antique shopping all day Saturday. We were in search of fun, festive, spooky goods to decorate our homes. Our search revealed some incredible finds, but the old marble-eyed, black tin cats are definitely my favorite. The shop owner was holding them behind the counter until Halloween. But, I was absolutely determined to take them home and start enjoying them immediately which is exactly what I did. They are displayed in the windows as a backdrop for the festive decor. The sun shines with such an eerie sparkle through their marble eyes. As usual, Lil wants to be part of the fun, so she made an appearance while I was snapping pics of the black cat lanterns!

Your home is lovely and I adore all the dollies.
Where oh where did you find the wonderful canvas piece on the brick? I adore it and would love to have one.
Thanks so much

Hi,
This was my first visit and I really enjoyed your blog. I too have a number of rescued kitties. Lil reminds me of my Imma Bivis. I love your art work and decorating. I look forward to visiting again.
