Fall Swap Treasures and More Decor

I received my Fall Swap package from my partner, Fran at and she was very generous :) It felt like Christmas...let's see what she sent...

The turkey holds 3 kitchen towels, which I love, some ceramic pumpkins, chocolate, pumpkin butter,beautiful fall color potholder, a devotional book, fall Welcome sign and
this little market bagg that she makes...Just too sweet.. THANK YOU SO MUCH, FRAN...You are a great swap partner. You'll have to check out her blog to see what I sent as I didn't take any photos...

Had some time this weekend as it was cold and I put up my little Halloween decor. It's the same items from last year...just put up in a new way...I hope!!!

The pumpkin on the middle candle holder is vintage and is my favorite thing along with the little tin on the left candle holder. Halloween decor is SO expensive and it so hard to find.

More decor on the bow window.
I didn't go to any estate sales this weekend. Tomorrow I am going to help a gal go through a home that will be having an estate sale at the end of the month. I offered to help price items and help with the sale :) I can't wait to see what's in the house...maybe she'll let me take photos!!
The furnace is ON...just had to as being cold in the house is silly. We are on the "budget" plan and have a nice credit and "they" say the gas prices won't be as high as last year..
The leaves are really turning and when the sun comes out again I hope to take some photos. They are so beautiful...God is an great artist :)
I hope to put more items on our selling blog this week...
Deb :)

Fun swap and great gifts from your swap partner. I love all your Halloween decorations. Fall...yippee, my absolute favorite season. I know about tightening up the budget. We are doing the same thing and try not to have the house get too warm. We wear warms clothes inside the house...that helps.

I always miss the cool parties and swaps! Your Halloween decorations look wonderful! I really need to get going on mine. I still don't have all of the fall decor up yet either!I had a hard time accepting that if was fall, but once I had to turn the furnace on, I became a believer!
Have a great day!

Hi Deb,

Great Halloween decorations! I love that black cat outlined in orange and the Halloween banner. The black pumpkins look great, too. Hope you have fun going through the house for the estate sale. It sounds like Autumn is in full swing in your neck of the woods! I would love to see pics.

Have a great week!
