Around The Corner

(****Above is a link to the Fantastic Figments Give-A-Way, get your entry in now!****)
Finally, Fall is in the air, our should I say on the trees. Here in upstate NY the leaves are changing fast. In the blink of an eye the most beautiful time of year will be behind us as we set in for another cool winter. BUT ALAS, let us not stew in grief here I have a little cutie to cheer us all up. This is Melvin Halloween.






The wise ol'pumpkin head who sits and waits patiently year after year for fall to bestow her glorious colors on the world. He waits for fall but longs for the day where ghouls and goblins play, All Hollows Eve. He radiantly sparkles and shimmers in the light sitting, waiting, for a very special night. We only see him one time of year but when he is out we can be assured Halloween is near!


I love sitting at my studio table looking out the window. The senior citizens home across the street is hosting a Halloween Festival this years and the lawn outside is COVERED in pumpkins! They are everywhere. I could easily say about 150 pumpkins adorn the lush green lawn. And at least one of those will be mine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Another activity that I am working on is my Fall calendar. Call me a goon but during this time of year I don't let a second go where I am not enjoying it's beauty. There is apple picking, wine tasting, hiking, and the list goes on. Of course there is never enough time to do it all but I desperately try. I would love for you to tell me what your favorite Fall activity is. I would love to try something new and I am sure you all have some creative ideas!

Have a blustery day,
Smooches
Steph

Melvin is CUTE Steoh!

I like your Fall list! My partner and I are hoping to visit Longwood Gardens in PA. again the second week of October. They will have the area's largest Halloween pumpkins and a room filled with every color Mum imaginable.

This weekend I will start my outdoor Halloween decorating. I start early because it takes me a month to get everything done in time for trick-or-treat!

Have a great rest of the week!

I love having a picnic and walking where the leaves are pretty, that's my adult fall thing. When I was a kid, it was raking leaves and making a "leaf house". oh, man, the memories! Love your Halloween stuff, kiddo!
