getting it together

I am trying to get some decorating done for a Halloween get together. I love bringing out the decorations and deciding where to place them

There are witches who cackle as you walk by

antique coal scuttles to be filled

birds in old cages

and spooky houses

It's a gloomy cold day here today, which explains why the photos aren't the clearest, but it's a perfect day to sip hot apple cider and get my house dressed up for Halloween.

Linking today with:
A Favorite Thing Saturday

Have you got your spooky on yet?



  1. Ooh, I love the sound of your weather! It's another sunny day here in SoCal. Happy decorating!

  2. LOL! I haven't gotten my spooky on yet. It's spooky enough for me trying to clear out my closet for the winter. :P I love those ceramic haunted cottages. Where did you get them? I'm also dying for that coal bucket! It would look great at my fireplace!

    I never have done much in the way of Halloween decorating as opposed to Fall/Harvest decorating which I am just starting to get in place this weekend. It's sunny but cool here, a perfect Fall Saturday so I should get plenty of work down as I've been much encouraged by your witchy decorations.

    Have a great rest of the weekend.

  3. I think I'd hit my head on the ceiling when that witch cackled at me in the middle of the night.... The houses are cute, and the cider sounds delicious!

  4. Looks like you're having fun decorating for Halloween! Love that coal scuttle!

    Thanks so much for joining in this week, Laura!


  5. I'm still working on my spooky, but you have inspired me! I love a rainy day when I can stay inside and play. It's just comfy to do that once in a while. Have a great weekend Laura!

  6. Sounds like a perfect day to me! Hot cider sounds like a good thing too!

  7. I love to decorate! Looks like you will have a fun day. I love apple cider! Hugs, Linda

  8. Laura, Looks as if you are ready for Halloween. Cute stuff. Smiles, Susie

  9. Enjoy your hot cider. I don't have my spooky on, but I'm making lots of spooky for a craft fair next Saturday (buntings, finger puppets, etc.. with a Halloween theme). I will be working Halloween night, so I'll miss greeting trick or treaters this year.

  10. I'm always thrilled to hear nice.
    This season is autumn favorite of the Japanese people.
    Very bright autumn leaves are beautiful.

  11. Figured since you had stopped by my blog, I had better check out yours! I'm glad I did--you have some great things posted. Have fun decorating...

  12. Just found your blog and love it!!! You have a great sense of humor... Keep posting!

  13. Have fun decorating! I just so enjoy the young children coming to the door on Halloween in their cute costumes!

  14. The gloominess is perfect for your scary decorations! I love the old bird's perfect! Sweet hugs!

  15. oh those things that make noise when you walk by! They startle me every time!Love your spooky houses.

  16. Oh it IS a good day for you to do that then! We've been having cooler weather here too. It was very windy here yesterday and I needed a jacket. We've been fortunate to have alot of sunshine though. I just put up some Halloween decor outside this weekend myself. I don't decorate for it indoors though. I like your witch and bird in the cage etc. It's going to look great when you get it all set up!
