Yes, I am late. However, better late than never! Barbara hosted Front Door Decor: Halloween Edition this past Monday at her blog, Candy Hearts and Paper Flowers. I didn't realize it was going to be Monday, but even if I had I doubt I would have had our decorations up any sooner than now. Actually, to be completely truthful, had it not been for Barbara I doubt I would have done anything. Again this year. Thanks for the kick in the pants my friend!

I went with Barbara's idea, keep it simple and make it so that it can carry on over to Thanksgiving. I wasn't thrilled with the wreath but since I got it for 60% off I went with it (for this year). I was, however, completely tickled with the way my pumpkins turned out! I got the idea here. Oh, and I just used little dots of craft glue, it's not like they have to last until eternity.
Here are close-ups of the pumpkins, before and after!
P.S. Awesome! Revka must be up early this morning, she updated my blog with the changes I have been wanting forever ... and never quite got around to chatting with her about. Nothing earth-shattering so if you don't notice don't be surprised. The big change is the lightening of the main blogging area color. I had had comments from my more 'mature eyes' readers that it tended to be hard to read. Also, I had wanted three columns and she changed that too. I am so lovin' this!
