Outside Halloween Decorations
This sums up how I've felt on and off this week:
If I could just find my broomstick, I'd ride off to Target and maybe feel better after a jaunt through the Dollar Spot. I'm barely kidding....
I do love the glittery orange with my pink wave petunias. I can't believe they've lasted this long!
I have this cute little ceramic pumpkin house next to the front door right now, along with a faux pumpkin. Our real pumpkins from our Pumpkin Patch Trip are on the other side of the steps.
Here's a quick look at the front "porch" area.
I've got my Vinyl "Welcome" Sign and Halloween Wreath up, along with a little glitter sign I got for free from Kohl's using my Kohl's Cash and a couponn. I dressed it up with some glittery purple ribbon:
The whole area really needs some sprucing up, but this time of year leaves us a very small budget. Short of letting Natalie choose her own pumpkin from the patch, I don't think that I'll be able to add much more this year. I have two large planters up near the edge of the sidewalk. I'd love to have something taller to flank either side of the front door--I love me some symmetry!
Any (nice) suggestions?
