A Halloween Collection

Today our furniture is set to arrive to Storybook Cottage. There is still quite of bit of work to be done, but as in most houses we will continue to chip away at our “to do” list while actually living in the home. I know it will take me a week or two to unpack all of the boxes.

Our neighbors have decorated their homes for fall in such a festive manner. I can’t wait to share all their darling porches with you. That is as soon as I find the battery charger for my camera. :)

So while I take a few days off to unpack I thought you might enjoy a few DTA Halloween favorites from years past.

Thanks for all the Fall and Halloween inspiration, Laura! All are wonderful but I really like that Pumpkin Diorama! My daughter lives on a dead end street and the folks on that street go all out with Halloween decorations and it is one of the most popular streets in Aiken for Trick or Treating. It has become a tradition to meet up over there on Halloween. She makes chili or soup, hot cider and coffee, etc. We all contribute to the candy for T&T and sit outside on the porch and in the yard to enjoy all the children in their costumes(sometimes hundreds of them). Last year, someone drove a black Hearst through there and that was a real hoot! Cars line up the street and up the main highway to bring the kids to Trick or Treat! Folks, for the most part, seem to be very mindful and careful to keep a lookout for the children having a good time. That is always a concern for me when the kids are scurrying about on the street. We do have a good time!
