Sweet Home Alabama in Autumn Glory

After we returned from our trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee, I was inspired to decorate my house for Halloween and Thanksgiving. The days are getting shorter, the nights are indigo dark, and I need my burst of fall colors to liven my spirit.  I even put together a little neighborhood treat for two houses called YOU'VE BEEN BOOED. Essentially you get two cheap candy holders and fill them with doodads and Halloween candy then place a poem with the holder instructing the recipient of the gifts to do the same to two other households. Here's the fun part: you have to do it in secret and not get caught. My darling daughter and I have "Booed" a lot of people under cover of night. It's quite fun!

Here are my Sweet Home Alabama Autumn Home Decorating Pictures:

Very nice!!! I love the mice on the stairs, a house a couple of streets over has them too. Hilarious!

Thanks Petra. I'm glad you like my mice. I got them from Michaels -- last year! I forgot to put them up--but it was fun setting it all up and getting ready for the pumpkin season.

Love the glorious colors of the fall season.

Very creative. The mice are great, and all of your little creatures and splashes of color. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Gwen: I'm glad you like the mice and color. I love the spiders and mice because they add a splash of silly into the decor. Darling Teen's cat Mischief tried catching them after I put them on the stairs. So funny.

I must write about Mischief, the other Feline who has to be followed.
