A thank you & some scary stuff!

Hi! I wanted to drop in & share a few things with you today.  First are some birthday goodies from a great blogging friend .... Ms. Carmen from Primcats! She made a stop over at Lil Raggedy Angie's last night, so I headed on over to visit too!  Look at the goodies she brought me for my birthday!

I just LOVE them all & feel very special that she thought of me.  Thanks again Carmen! You rock!!

I also thought I'd share my outside decorating with you today too.  I was wanting to go for more of just a "fall" theme instead of Halloween but Cody really likes the scarecrows we've made so I said "oh, well!" & got busy!  It's hard to get good pics of it all together but you get the point.

~Cody with our big scary scarecrow~

~mr.frankenstein got a makeover this year ~ he did have a foam face but it was looking bad so he got a new pumpkin head instead ~ he looks much better now! lol
(the pumpkin was a purple one i found for .25 cents & i painted it black then orange to give it the streaky look)
~i made this little ghost -actually made 3 of them ~ I just balled up some plastic grocery bags & wrapped some scrap fabric around the posts that were already in my flower beds (1 was a lil bird & one was a post w/a star-i took the star off to use the post) & tied them with some twine - they are my favorite thing outside (I think I might be board line obsessed with ghosts this year! lol)

I want to still get some pumpkins & maybe some corn stalks.  Maybe after Halloween I'll change out the scarecrows & just decorate my window boxes.  We'll have to wait & see how ambitious I am by then! lol

Hope everyone is enjoying their week!

Cool and fun! Oh, I used to decorate like that when the kids were younguns and would still like to do it, but hubby is a sour puss when it comes to decorating for the holidays. One of these days! LOL.
