Hey girlfriend! It took me an entire day to recover from the street fair this past weekend. Whew! what a lot of work! Your stuff is darling, as usual--I'm living vicariously through everyone else's Halloween stuff since I didn't get a chance to decorate.

My name is PJ. said...

Your Halloween pumpkins and other decorations are absolutely darling!

Congrats, Mimi!

Jojo said...

Cute pumpkins Linda! I love your fall yard sale plate too:@)

Jane said...

Good Morning Linda Sweetie...
Congratulations to MiMi. She will have fun with this. We all love to shop.

Your collectibles are absolutely devine Linda and I love the storage cubbies. Love the pumpkin plate, what a wonderful garage sale find.

I see in your table arrangement you found the perfect spot for that precious little squirrel you found in Texas. He just had to come home with you. He looks just perfect there, and I am sure there are plenty of things to keep him busy and out of mischief.

Have a gorgeous day sweetie. Many hugs and so much love, Sherry

Those cubbies are such a great place to change out your decor seasonally, and it looks great! And congrats to Mimi!

The bears are adorable, along with everything else. Congrats Mimi!

Sue said...

It's always more fun to find things while out thrifting, rather than pay full price for them, isn't it? You have some cute things for Halloween, Linda!

gail said...

I love little cubbies like that! Everything looks really cute. Love how you change it for the seasons, too.
Well I've procrastinated enough...off to rake the leaves, I go!

vintagesusie & wings said...

Your house looks so festive friend with all your fabulous Halloween Finds!!! Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. I am so sorry to hear your ins. isn't going through! It's a tough & scarey place to be in, I know. But I do believe other doors of opportunity present themselves to us if we are just open to see them. The huge question for me is always, WHERE & WHEN!!! lol Until that moment comes we'll just have to get out the hand sanitizer, try & live in a bubble & hope we don't get SICKY!
Hugs & Smiles,

Beth said...

Linda, Those cubbies make for really cute way to show off your seasonal decor. I love your smiling pumpkin, and also your autumn centerpiece. Thanks for joining the Pumpkin Party.
blessings, Beth

Wonderful pumpkin collection Linda! You have some great "keepers" too. I especially love the little ceramic jack with the red leaf. Beautiful centerpiece with the real pumpkins. I love all the details!

Kathy said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I love all of your pumpkins. I do most of my shopping at thrift stores, I like going to see what you can find! Not like at the big stores where everything is the same. Have a wonderful Halloween! Boo!

Susan said...

Good afternoon, Linda. I hope this day finds you very well and happy. It's so windy here today... I thought I might get blown right off the road on the way back from the chiropractor! My goodness.

I love your wonderful fall collections. I especially like the squirrels. I think I may have to start collecting a few myself. :-) I only have one, and he's packed away, for heaven's sake. Hmmmm...

The one in your cubbies holding the acorns is my favorite. He looks very vintage. :-)

Oh, and before I forget, Congrats Mimi! Have fun on your shopping spree!

Thanks for sharing your fall collectibles with us today, Linda.

Big hugs,

Sherrie said...

Jacqueline said...

What a bunch of finds you have. And what a fun way to display them. I bet everyone loves seeing you change the displays. To a child that would be magical.

Hi Linda, You have the cutest little things! I am especially fond of that little ghost. He doesn't look too scary! Linda
