For My Walls

I'm rather in a minor funk right now, since I thought that I'd be able to decorate for Halloween inside and out, then be able to stay home and enjoy it, but that is not to be. I've accepted that, but it doesn't mean that I'm happy about it, since it takes away that extra spicey glow that is so much fun!

But I still have come across some things that couldn't be ignored. .I found these at a local antique/flea market and am going to be hanging them on my craftroom wall.  They are both made of brass, and the bottom one has some minor damage to it, that I'm trying to figure out if I should try and repair it, or let it be. .it is darker in the photo than what it really looks like. .the top one is the House of Seven Gables, and the bottom one is where the Salem Witch Trials took place.

And this little gem will also find permanent residence on my craftroom wall, out of direct light, since it is a piece of vintage crepe paper, put in a simple black frame.  Now how simple, but clever, is that!!?  (and yes, Madam Owl is a new resident too, and will more than likely keep me company throughout the year! What a cutie she is!!)

I've decided that since I can't decorate to my heart's content in my home, I'm going to decorate my blog with photos from previous years, interspersed with new things that cannot be denied, along with some seasonal recipes, etc.   I realized that all of my last year's Halloween photos are on my other blog, and would be more at home here. I hope that you enjoy my trip down memory lane, with me! 

Wishing you a gorgeous Autumn Day!


  1. that crepe paper photo and owl! Can't believe that Halloween is so fast approaching. I've decided to not take our annual Autumn trip to New England and when I do that, I get into a bit of a funk too. I can feel a bit depressed when I don't get to experience a real Fall season. {sigh}

  2. Love the brass pictures! You always find the most unique things! So sorry that you won't be able to stay home and enjoy your decorating. Wishing you a fun week!


  3. Guess I should have read this one before I posted the other! Your positive attitude is so appreciated. Many blessings to you and your hubby!


Thank you so very much for stopping by! I love the company, and hope that you will come back again!
