I thought I'd show you some of my decorations for that holiday-----THANKSGIVING!

The scarecrow on my mantle was made by a neighbor who used to do a
craft show every year. . . .I have a LOT of things she made, and I'm sad she doesn't make
her crafts any more.
used some of my scrapbooking paper and letters to make this-----I love the way it turned out:
So, what are you thankful for?

(I changed the settings, so if you haven't been able to leave a comment

I'll be sharing some thankful thoughts next week.

How lucky I am to have such a great friend as Holly, and how thankful I am to have her back in California so I can watch her kids grow up!
Hope you had an equally wonderful day!

The garage. . . full of animated, moving, moaning figures:

I got these cute little 'Yikes!' and 'Eek!' signs at Michael's. They are on some drawer knobs in the entry as you walk into the house. I'm not sure I'll keep them there, or put them with some other decorations, but I think they're great!
Got this little trio on sale at Longs, of all places.
My collection of Halloween bears has joined my collection of teddy bears.
A look at my fireplace, with a Halloween swag that I got at a craft fair years ago, and two new pumpkin additions!
The pumpkins are those 'fake' ones from Michael's that have been on sale.
I found the parts for the faces at. . . . .Longs! They were advertised for "kids" to
use instead of having to use a knife to cut a real pumpkin, but I thought they
would be fun for me to use! And I like the way they turned out. . . .and NO mess to clean up!

Love this new 'pumpkin girl' that I got from a craft fair, together with a metal 'eek' and wonderful fall potpourri.
On my mantel, three old pieces with a new "boo."
Inspired by what I saw on other blogs, I made this 'boo' sign with things I already had at home. I love the way it turned out.....and so simple to make!
One of my cute bears (thanks, AJ!) with a new 'Happy Halloween' pillow from a craft fair. The bear on the right is from WalMart.....he is a 'scaredy bear' and when we press on his foot, he shakes and goes "Ooohhhhhhh......Ooohhhhhhh......Ooohhhhhhh!" So funny!
A pumpkin, a 'candle' and a 'treats' can (made by Michelle).
Will post more pics at a later date, including my outside decorations!
