A few more fall accents Halloween and Outside Decor

Oh my am I behind! Spent two hours trying to get my printer running to do contracts for my hubby finally after being totally frustrated he called his "tech smart" friend over only to find out that they double taped the new cartridge.(which only made me more grumpy for wasting time) So everything is great now.I signed up for one last swap over at yorkiesprimitives.blogspot.com it sounds fun but if you want to sign up hurry today is the last day.I'm doing 4 swaps so this next week that's what I'll be working on.Probly do a few extras so I can list for etsy and swap with anyone that wants to exchange other hand dids.The girls are coming tomorrow and we are supposed to go to this 7 acre cornmaze, but I'm not sure depends if the weather changes they were calling for 50 mile wind now it's down to 30 mile so maybe it will get out of it's system today.Don't really want smacked around by cornstalks and dirt in my eyes while trying to chase two 8 year olds through a 7 acre maze.LoL I've got stuff for cupcake making if the weather is bad.Here are a few pics of outside and more fall/halloween.This year I scaled down alot and tried to do alot that could take me into Thanksgiving as well."Simplify" A hard word for me but I'm getting better.I live in a small rural town in Pennsylvania we are in town but my hubby brings home all kinds of old farm stuff sometimes it's hard to tell.

Front porch..The witch is completely metal and about 4 foot tall.The mums and pumpkins I picked up last week at the fleamarket.

I bought this witch on pumpkin at fleamarket from a lady that had a shop and was reducing inventory since closing.She holds a jack o lantern and a black cat she is artist signed on the bottom.She had a price sticker for $90 the lady sold her to me for $9 She is just awesome in person.

Antique well pump my husband put in only for decoration.

Front door.Pumpkin doll I got her because she's not halloweeny and I can leave her up till Turkey Day..

Circle in front yard taken a few days ago.Those flowers I planted I can't remember what they were but they must be in the mum family because they started blooming profusely once it got chilly.

The rusty whitch is metal and about 1.5 ft tall she looks so neat with a little tealight reflecting her shadow in the evening.

This hooked rug was a artist signed salesman sample I don't think it ever went into production so it's one of a kind.

My hubby was going to sell this vintage bike but I fell in love with it and took it,Not really fall but it is orange.Hope you enjoyed the pics.Have a wonderful weekend! Harvest Blessings!~Amy

Adorable halloween/fall arrangements! I also like to find fall items that work with either Halloween or Thanksgiving! I put out orange twinkle lights on my outdoor bushes and leave them up until I change them out for Christams.
