There's a Nip in the Air



The pumpkin folk have begun to gather.




In tux and top hat and elegant ball gown,

Monsieur and Madame invite you to meet a few of the clan.





Happy folk who like to spread Halloween joy.




Smiling Jacks




Ready to greet those who stop in to visit.




Cheerful




Merry




Jolly



Jovial



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



And Goblins Fill the Street



Door Bells Rings



One Hears the Familiar



Trick
or
Treat!

Hum, I do think there's an impostor in the group.



Happy Halloween!

The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.

  30. What cute pumpkin folk you have. I just love those first ones, such treasures. I love the trick or treater pillow. Are they from the Hallo wiener book? They look just like them. How fun to be at your house. My 5 year old grandson was just showing his friend around our house and pointing out all the decor today. They do notice!

  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

  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!

  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.
