NO TRICKS - BUT SOME GREAT TREATS!

My friend, Susie, is a Halloween decorator extraordinaire. Going to Susie's home at any time of the year is a real treat, but it is especially fun to visit Susie during the Halloween season. Today I'm sharing bits of her decor. On Monday, I will be sharing bits of my Halloween decor for the Halloween Party hosted by Fiberdoodles.









I want to share something that was a real treat for me! On my birthday last month, I won a prize from Bridget at My Silly Blog. Wasn't that just the sweetest thing for Bridget to pick ME on MY BIRTH DATE? It was such a fun birthday surprise. And, just look at what I won -- a Bridget original! Thank you so much Bridget. I can't wait to get it framed and hang it.


I treated myself by ordering these great plaques from the Etsy shop of Susie Harris at Bienvenue. They are a perfect fit on these two cabinet doors (which is a good thing, since I am running out of wall space!).



EDITED TO ADD (AFTER I REALIZED THAT I HAD LET MY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY PASS, AND AFTER SOME VISITORS HAD ALREADY READ THIS POST):

I have a treat for you too! I guess I have to confess that I am becoming senile! So many of us began blogging at about the same time. I have been visiting bloggers who are celebrating their one year anniversaries, and I've been thinking that it was amazing that they had been blogging for a year. This morning, I realized that my first post was on October 11, 2008!!! So, I have been blogging for more than a year, and in my senility, I let the date pass by! You know how time flies when you're having fun. I, like all of you other bloggers, never expected blogging to be so much fun. I know that I have the nicest blog visitors anywhere, and I know I would never have blogged for a year had it not been for all of you. I had decided that one thing I like about blogging is that it keeps my mind active. I'm always on the lookout for a photo op for my blog, which has made me so much more aware of my surroundings. The blogs I visit have such wonderful ideas and inspiration. I learn so much from all of you bloggers, and I am so inspired by all of you. Apparently, it hasn't kept me from becoming senile though, since I forgot my blog anniversary. In appreciation of all of you, who have encouraged me to blog for a whole year, one person who leaves a comment on this post will receive this cake plate and server. I will be announcing the prize winner on Thursday, October 22nd (if I don't forget!).

I'm sorry. The giveaway is now closed. THE WINNER HAS BEEN DRAWN!

Thank you so much for coming to see treats posted by a senile blogger! laurie
