Engaging Folk

Ready for Halloween Fun

They Light the Way

With Their Crooked Toothy Smiles

Parade About on Halloween Night

When Strange Groups Begin To Gather

  47. Happy Pink Saturday Sarah Sweetie...
    Oh what a precious share today. I loved going trick or treating about your home. Love the little parade of characters. You have such a great collection. My favorite is the black round guy with orange dots and the pumpkin face, and his little top hat, so divine. Love that way the ribbons and bells were attached as well.

    Your wooden pumpkin is alot like mine. Mine has a black cat on top with a black spider hanging off of that. Love that 3-D look. (Look a few posts back where Daddy and Tony made the silhouette witch and you will find my pumpkin as well.) Aren't they fun?

    Your home is decorated so beautifully sweet one. Thank you for sharing along with me today. I enjoyed myself so much. Have a glorious weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  48. Oh how absolutely charming Sarah!! Your pumpkins and folks are so sweet~ looks like you are ready for Halloween!! Thanks for linking up at Feathered Nest Friday!

  50. Such adorable pumpkin folk...and I love the little imposter at the end.


  51. Good Morning Sarah!

    As usual, your post is wonderful! You have such a talent for decorating and have so many items to display!

    I still try to read my favorite blogs daily but don't get to post as much as before. LIFE is presenting me with many "side" trips! Some good--some NOT so good.

    I hope you have a wonderful week!

  52. Totally adorable! Love all your "Jack" characters. Happy Halloween to you, too!
    :) CAS

  53. Hi Sarah...my goodness but time flies when your havin' fun bloggin' and livin' life. I've been doing lots of both without much time for visiting, so I'm just droppin' in to say Howdy, and invite you to stop by CollectInTexas Gal.

    As times change for all of us, our Blogs seem to reflect those changes in our interests, and CITexas Gal has changed a bit with the addition of Tracks of My Texas Ancestors. Yep, I've been bitten by the Genealogy Bloggin' Bug.

    I'd love to share the Blogging Genealogy Community with you. I hope you will have a minute to stop by and see/read the 'May I Introduce You To' interview Feature on CollectInTexas Gal/Tracks of My Texas Ancestors by GeneaBlogger.
