This fall I decided to skip the traditional fall colors and decorate with more natural tones. I love the soft creams and browns and the textures of the ghords, burlap pumpkins and vines that I used.A view down the mantle
I purchased the burlap pumpkins at the Hico Market last weekend and my friend Carol gave me the wonderful ghords from her garage sale stash!!
My wise old owl stands beside a vintage Thanksgiving postcard I found in a box of treasures at another garage sale.
Love the old mirror leaning on the wall.
One of my favorite little statues.

I know, I'm crazy, but Carol and I are having a BIG GARAGE SALE this weekend. When we returned from Hico, we went to our booths on Monday and totally revamped our areas. Carol closed her large space and I gave her my little space, Bunnytrails 1. I kept Bunnytrails 2 and filled it with goodies I had left from Hico. Well, we decided to part with a LOT of things that we have had for a while. So once again, let the fun begin!!!!!! The sale will be Saturday at Carol's home, 2626 Meadow Lake Drive, in Fairway Oaks. I imagine it will start around 8:00 a.m. Hope to see you there! There really is some GOOD STUFF!!!!!!!

For many reasons, Halloween is not one of my favorite holidays, BUT I do love seeing the children dressed up and excited about their treats! Having said that, the porch was ready, the pumpkin was lit, and I helped out Walgreens' sales by purchasing a lot of candy!!! About the time I had everything ready,
I look up and see this coming down the street! Kids and parents filled this flatbed truck. It was so cute!
What a clever way to trick or treat. Everyone of them had kind words and "thank yous" as they left my front porch.
As it got a little darker, this table, complete with place settings with spaghetti and meatballs , showed up at my door. Is that not priceless or what??? The trick or treaters kept coming and coming, until all of the candy was gone and I was scrambling to find goodies in the pantry.
This is all I could come up with but it was appreciated by a cute little goblin! However, the cutest of the evening was my new little neighbor who came to my side patio earlier in the evening.
