Decorating for Autumn Indoors

 

 This Sunday, October 24th we will host our Annual Pumpkin Carving Party. To get all ready, it is time to decorate for Autumn and Halloween.  My mom gifted me my Pumpkin Man many, many years ago. It is one of my very favorite decorations.

 

Pumpkins, ghosts and more.

 

This amber candle holder was a recent  .99 cents thrift find.


 

I collect nutcrackers. I created this display on top of our fireplace.

 

The wind kicked up today and I can feel the change in the air. The October winds are officially blowing Autumn in.

  2. Carla, your house is so festive for Autumn and Halloween. I love Pumpkin Man. He looks so cute sitting there in the center of all your goodies. The nutcracker is cute also. He looks woodsy. And the amber candle holder is so lovely. I have a blog friend who has a whole collection of amber pieces. Your twinkly lights add a special touch.

    It was windy here today too. Be sure to show us all the carved pumpkins, what fun that will be.

    It's colder here also. And it's about time. The 'feeling' now, is not early Autumn anymore. It is deep into Autumn.

  14. Your decor is so cute! I 1ove the whimsy of it . We have had wonderful weather. But it is going to be jacket weather very soon, perhaps in a week. Not that I haven't worn a jacket, but it ends up coming off about an hour into being outside as the temps rise
