A Boo~tiful Night!



A group of girlfriends have

enjoyed a dinner group for over 30 years.




Cindy was our hostess this month,

and her beautiful home was ready for Halloween.

Want to take a look?





This charming vignette on a bed of crispy fall leaves 

sets the mood on the entry table.

See the chandelier reflected

in the mirror.





It gave off a festive glow .   .   .





As we dined below.

These are the party favor treats from everyone.

I forgot to get a shot of the lovely meal.

Delicious!





This tray showcases a collection of 

Halloween pins collected through the years.





This one in the kitchen holds

a coven of folk art witches.





The breakfast room buffet

offers a whimsical vignette.





A jolly jack-o-lantern and

a witch in flight.

Trick or Treaters,

March across the shelves of

a kitchen baker's rack.




Hope you enjoyed a peek into

Cindy's beautifully decorated home.

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.
