I love these pics!!I tore many halloween ideas from alot of magazines.
I'm trying to get adjusted living here in AZ( In a good way,of course).My husband packed up his law office and our home back in Il to relocate here.
Decorating here is different but fun in its own way.I'm looking forward to the little challenge it has here .
Hope you have a great day!! Chickie

Karen, these are great pictures and layouts. I got inspired to do my own pumpkin spread on the table on my porch. I love this time of year! Just as I was homebound after surgery, the Cherry tree out my window burst into color. Everything else is gone by. The smells of the dry leaves and fresh air! Happy Halloween!
