First up is this cool metal tin picnic basket to add to my collection, which is now just this shy of enough. Maybe. Or not.
Next this gargantuan long chicken feeder. I may have underestimated how long this baby was. I had ideas of putting it on my dining room table all full of small pumpkins and gourds and fall leaves and such. Umm, no. It goes from one end to the other and looks pretty stupid. Gonna have to rethink this one. Any thoughts?
Last I got a metal wheel with spokes thing (what the heck are those called?) My mom has one hanging on her wall with old pictures and stuff clipped to it and it looks cool. It is currently still buried in the garage with the rest of the show leftovers and I haven't found the energy to dig it out. But ya catch my drift.
This weekend my mom and I hit up a few favorite haunts and found some goodies.
The last thing I got actually came in the mail. I ordered these two vintage Halloween die cuts from Magpie Ethel (thanks Laurie!) and they were just the thing to make me want to get out my Halloween decorations!
But looking how cute they look all mixed in with the others
This is only about 1/3 of the die cuts I have, but I only put up a few this year, and I decided to frame some...ooh fancy!
Since I'm showing off the homestead I gotta share my mantle. I never do scary halloween (I used to when the kids were little, even turned my whole garage into a haunted house one year. Yes, it was awesome) but this year I did all vintage in the front room and decided to go a little creepier in the family room.
In other news I went to the pumpkin patch today and Im pretty sure I'm hear cider donuts and orange cream soda calling my name. Till next time...
