Fall On The Farm

i thought if i went looking for FALL i would snap out of my BLOG SLUMP.... this is my kitchen window this afternoon...see the candle ? i scored a couple of these from Rite-Aid ...those apples are from my tree..they are called Seek-No-Further... if you look close..that white cloth hanging over the window box is my ghost...




i risked my life to get this pumpkin....the pumpkin patch looked abandoned...nobody there today..it was dark and empty and windy and SPOOKY...just an honesty box...but the really creepy part was a man sitting in a car in the middle of a vacant pumpkin patch... what's he doing there ???? i never took my eyes off of him...but i DID get the pumpkin !!!






this is by my kitchen door... i LOVE the old Halloween blow mold in the window...he looks so great at night...i got it at the Goodwill for 25 cents a couple of years ago...and that's a black spider hanging from my old rake....





i got these about 30 years ago at an antique shop in cayucos..some man was making them...i have always loved them...





i painted this bench blue and have it under my kitchen window... click for a close-up..there is a witch on that piece of oak wood...





this was made by a lady from colorado..i used to get them at a shop in cambria many years ago....




some of my old Halloween hanging by my kitchen sink...




just look at that !!! dande's little kitty paws...getting that good late afternoon sun....

  10. I love Halloween and fall but we don't really get much of either down in So Cal. I'm excited to head to the south next month and lots of orange leaves :)

  11. Do you think it was a scarecrow in the car? That kind of activity makes me uneasy; I'd probably have given up on the pumpkin.

  12. So...glad Mr. Creepy didn't get you!!
    You're place is sure welcoming fall.I really love the green witch-who you didn't even mention. Is it because she wasn't visible to the human eye and only shows up on camera? Now that's a spooky thought!

  21. The 2nd picture from top is so beautiful! Huge pumpkin exhibition here at the castle grounds, but I haven't been yet; it lasts until November so eventually I'll go round, if only for a plate of their delicious pumpkin cream soup!

  30. Love that witch - so very cool! This makes me want to decorate for fall so bad! But, I feel that I need to wait until the temps stop reaching into the high 70s/80s. I need a good cool snap so I can plant some mums and bring out the decor.
