Halloween Inspired

This weekend we took a little trip to a pumpkin patch...A "real" one.

It was about 45 minutes from where we live.

There were soooo many pumpkins to pick from...

I was in total awe...What can I say, it was my very first time at a real pumpkin patch.

I came back home inspired and in a Halloween mood...

So I decorated a little corner of my cottage with a few little spirited knick-knacks.

I'll be working on my porch next...Come back and see what I come up with.

Until then.

Have a wonderful new week.


Hugs and Kisses,

I love pumpkins and yes they do put you in the Halloween and Fall spirit. Just like snow and a tree puts one in a Christmas spirit.

You have a nice week too.

Hello dear Ana,
I love your new heading, the way the name is super imposed on the background, I feel like I am peeking through your window to see the sweet little vignette in your house. I really like that!
Your trip to the pumpkin patch sounds like it was fun, I love pumpkin farms!!! Your spooky little vignette is interesting to say the least!
Hugs, Cindy

Hi Ana... what a fabulous pumpkin patch! They are so very much fun to go to... how did you ever decide which ones to pick to go home with you? I am going to ours again this week with my nieces... Halloween is my favorite holiday and I love everything about it... your little corner you decorated is just perfect for Halloween! A very cute vignette!... Can't wait to see your front porch!... xoxo Julie Marie

I haven't been to the pumpkin patch in a few years now, but hubby & I always loved taking the kids there. I'm glad you finally got to visit a real pumpkin patch!

Your little corner of Halloween decor is adorable! It's the perfect collection of spooky cuteness.

Hola Ana,
Que maravilla de lugar... me encantaría poder tener calabazas así. Aquí son difíciles de conseguir porque Halloween no se celebra (aunque donde vivimos, por haber muchos residentes ingleses, los niños si lo disfrutan, disfranzándose y yendo de casa en casa).
Me encantó como quedó el mueble que te regaló tu cuñado. Besos

G'morn sweet Ana ~ Thank you so much for the get well card, that means a lot to me ... you are very special to me. I am doing better today.

Your vignette is just wonderful, Ana. So festive & welcoming.

Have you seen these new pink candy corns the gals are making? ... they last all year & are fabulous touch in ones decor.

I, too, love going to the pumpkin patch with the kid-lings every year ... I probably have more fun than they do. It is so exciting & festive, then the hayride to the actual patch to pick out our pumpkins, what fun.

Have a beautiful day ... my very precious friend.
Hugs, Marydon
