I haven't started working in the WeShed yet. I'll probably concentrate more on the deck than the shed itself.
These are in the house....

Black cat cookie jar. A find from Harry and David many years ago.

Rick found these black cat saucers when he was in Virginia on a union trip.

The black stand that I bought. It holds the KA food processor and Big Red, the big KA mixer. That tiered tray is from Hong Kong, back in the 1960s. My GF's husband was stationed there and he bought two trays: one for his wife and one for his mom. When his mom passed away, he told his wife that he wanted me to have the tray. I think it's neat. The leaves of the pineapple are actually little spoons for dipping and such. It's something different.

No holiday or season is complete without Snoopy! Rick found him.

The black cat needs to be refinished. Look closely and you'll see that the witch has red hair. Rick saw her and thought of me right away. I'm not exactly sure what the significance of that is....and I don't think I want to know!


Our friend, Bob, found this at a yard sale and thought I had to have it. Again, I'm not sure of significance that everybody sees witches and thinks of me.

The catgoyle lives on the wall above our basement door. He's there year-round, but since it's getting close to Halloween, I thought I'd take his picture. I'm a big gargoyle fan.

Thanks for looking! Show your fall/Halloween pictures. I'd love to see them!

Ugh Winchester Winchester , you are killing me!! It's taking all I have to not want to decorate for Halloween this weekend. :lol: I decorated for Fall on August 1st and everyone was telling me, "You know it's not Fall, right?" I plan to decorate for Halloween on Oct 1st or 2nd. I will try to remember to take some photos today of my Fall decor I have up right now before I add in the Halloween stuff next week.

I have no sense of interior design and my house doesn't look as nice as all yours, so I'll just admire from afar.

Winchester Winchester I absolutely love your witch's sign - if I had one I would definitely hang it in the center of my front door. :thumbsup:

The ideas make absolutely no sense, but two ancient myths are related to Halloween characters: vampires and witches.

We all know what witches have: black cats.

I wanted to do something this year. Normally we don't do much for the fall, but I'm happy to have a bit of cooler weather. I've always like Halloween, but never had time to decorate. And last year, with quarantine, well, it just didn't seem worth it.

susanm9006 susanm9006 I love your black box with the cats and pumpkins. That's so pretty.
neely neely The witch sign came from Bob, a good friend of ours. I believe he found it at a yard sale and got for $1.00! I can't put much on our front door because it faces directly south and becomes boiling hot during the day. We've actually burned ourselves on the metal storm door.
klunick klunick Where did you get those pumpkins? Are they mercury glass or a metallic? I love them.
Lari Lari I hope we get to see J in her costume, even if it's from the neck down. (And I totally understand you not posting her face. Our grands are 15 and 13 and I would never post their faces on FB!)

Thanks for showing your fall decorations!

You are the second person to ask if those pumpkins were glass. They are not. I don't buy breakable (or expensive) decor. Between kids and cats, too much risk involved. I got it on collectionsetc.com but it looks like it is sold out. https://www.collectionsetc.com/products/Lighted-LED-Fall-Pumpkins-and-Sunflowers-Centerpiece/ I took off all the berries for fear of the cats eating them. They light up but I never turn them on. They have individual pumpkins that are similar though. https://www.collectionsetc.com/products/lighted-harvest-pumpkin-set-fall-home-decor-3-pc/

Winchester Winchester I will closer to Halloween! Her face is on facebook, but since I keep that friends only I feel a bit better about it (I know anything can be hacked). Since just anyone anywhere can come on here, I want to be a bit more careful.
