THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT

I'm linking this post of my Halloween decor to Fiberdoodles for Sharon's Halloween party. Of course, I never miss an opportunity to link to Little Red House for Mary's Mosaic Monday.











































Can you tell I've been having fun shopping in the Etsy stores? Let me tell y'all, everything I've ordered looks better in person than it did in the photos on Etsy. I ordered some things to give as gifts, but when I unwrapped them, I knew I was going to have trouble giving away any of these creations.








Click on these very creative ladies' blogs to find links to their Etsy stores:

Don't forget to go to Fiberdoodles to find links for Halloween fun and to Little Red House for links to fun mosaics. Please leave a comment on my previous post for a chance to win the give-away to be announced on Thursday, October 22nd. Thanks so much for coming to visit me. laurie

No wonder you have not been posting as much--You've visiting, decorating and shopping!! Bet the grandkids love all of this. As for the dog on the table, that little devil had a UT orange collar on (compliments of his new dad)---little traitor :)

What a collection of Halloween gems! Are those Pez dispensers I saw in one photo???
I can understand why it would be hard to part with some of the items!!

fiberdoodles said...

I just LOVE this! What a fun post!! Thank you so much for joining the party.

KBeau said...

Laurie, you and Susie need to have a contest to see who has the most holiday decor. I seem to recall that when she and Tommy moved from Virginia to Conway they had to have an extra moving van for all of the holiday stuff. The movers thought they had it all packed into one van until Susie directed them to the basement where the holiday stuff was stored.

Manuela@Pleasures of Homemaking said...

You have so much wonderful Halloween stuff! I love how everything looks so vintagey! You are the mosaics Queen!! Love your fall header too!

Manuela

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Laurie,

My - goodness - you have outdone yourself with your fabulous mosaics. You are so creative and I love seeing what you have put together. The upholstery pumpkins are adorable - what a great idea. I am going to have to try that on my pumpkins.

Have a wonderful week.
Blesings,
Erin

I may have to go back to surgery on the 26th again, on my daughter Birthday, just have to wait and see what happens with the first I will be in surgery tomorrow 8-10 hours, not in a room until late evening. Thanks Laurie, now if you do not have time do not feel you have to do this! Love ya K

KarenHarveyCox said...

Laurie,
Thanks for mentioning my name and showing the pumpkins in your gorgeous mosaics of Halloween and Fall. I was lost in all of your Halloween decorations, when a scrolled down and what did I see, but my name. You always make me feel so good. You are the delight, Laurie. I love all of your decorations, if I lived closeby I would pop over with a pumpkin pie.

Have a lovely day,

Karen

KarenHarveyCox said...

Laurie,
I stopped by to read the latest chapter in your writing, but it says I am not on your invited guest list. Can you include me please, I love to read what you have written.

Happy Wednesday.

Karen

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Hi Laurie - Thanks for stopping by. The horse was at Poplar and Farmington (Saddle Creek) last Summer. They were all auctioned off a year ago this month, so don't know where it is now. Susan posted a picture of the horse not to long ago. Enjoying this weather.
Have a great day.
Glenda

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Think it should be West St. & Poplar - not Farmington. Coffee never kicked in this morning.

Soosie said...

Oh, yippee, someone who has more Halloween than I do!!..maybe..Kathy B. should come do a count at both of our houses..your initial pumpkins look great, Laurie..so proud of you..I just made a Mister Soxx pumpkin..will send a pic. Thanks for the Halloween fun at your house! fabulous! Susie

Lynette said...

Hi Laurie - Your mosaics are always so pretty and creative and unique - just like YOU!!

Happy Wednesday to you -
