I love Nashville in the fall. The rolling hills of Tennessee, the vibrant colors– all caught perfectly in this photograph taken in the Brentwood area by my dear and talented friend Terri Watson.
Time to take the fall theme indoors! We were a little behind at the Allen house, but we managed to hike our way to the attic last weekend with just one week to spare before Halloween. My coffee table book, Nashville City of Note (snagged at the Friends of Brentwood Library book sale) was the perfect anchor for my little rustic pumpkin that Mom made and gave me years ago.
And then I have these awesome weathered lanterns that I decided to flank with my Mercury glass pumpkin, also a gift from a friend. I love the sparkle and shimmer of Mercury glass. Don’t you?
I lucked upon this baby ghost at Goodwill (Shhhh)! Thrifting is something I really enjoy. It’s the thrill of the hunt I guess.
Another love of mine that I share with my daughter is crafting. The bigger lantern houses one of our DIY cheesecloth ghosts. Spooky, right?
Now, I ‘mustache’ you where the other ghost is? With the mustache craze, we just couldn’t resist. Yesterday was EVEN mustache day at Edmondson Elementary School.
Ghosts aren’t the only ones who get to have fun! How about my dancing skeletons from PD’s in Franklin? Worth a trip if you have never been!
These simple decorations make me happy! I love the smiling pumpkin atop the vintage Gone With the Wind (yep, another library treasure) and the not so subtle handwritten reminder that it is always time to ‘Give Thanks!’
Let’s not forget the outdoors… I found this fall pillow at Home Depot (last one). I wasn’t quite sure about these colors together but I love them.
It has become somewhat of a family tradition to carve our Mouse Motel. Hint: It’s way easier than those elaborate pumpkin carving stencils!
We had a real belly laugh with Elliott’s costume this year. And Truffles took her costume to heart- just look at that mischievous face. Our rescue pups both got a ton of attention Trick-or-Treating last night.
This concludes my blog post for today….
But one more question — I’m curious — Would you consider buying a house if you knew it was haunted?
Would love to hear your thoughts...
