Thinking Halloween

I wish I could say things got better around here but alas.... It seems the only time I get the urge to decorate is at Halloween. I always try to change my decorating to keep people wondering what I'm going to do this year. I found some pictures from a few years ago that I wanted to show.

The theme was witches lair complete with a potions table.

I think maybe I need to find an exterminator, LOL!!!
Well, I need to bone up and find some new idea to work with and I will try to posts more pics. Until then Happy Haunting !!!

I'm Still Here !

It's been quite a few months since I posted but I have been thinking of everyone. Life here is still in a turmoil with dr. appointments,tests and work. I have not really had time to do much around here except regular housework and making supper. The one thing I did manage was to revamp my front porch for a place to sit back and relax even if it is just for a few minutes.
I love the results ! The "wicker" set was a birthday present last year from my hubby. The cushions were free with the set so they were not my choice but I have learned to work with what you are given so I have been pleased with the results.

This is sure different with my usual style of roses and lace.

Ok, so maybe I haven't released all my flowers LOL! But I did go for more greenery  for the porch than flowers.

A few candles in lanterns add just enough light without attracting bugs.

I hope everyone has a great summer to enjoy even if it is just relaxing on their own porch. One just has to make due with what they have and in the end the results might surprise you.

Time Flies By!

I did not realize it had been SOoooo Longggg... since I posted last. Life around here is an emotional roller coaster. My daughter is now off starting college to become an RN, and my son is still battling cancer Needless to say I have not been feeling very sociable,let alone in the mood to do any decorating. Halloween which I love was without one thing done, and Thanksgiving was made with a heavy heart. We scraped by Christmas (barely) trying our best to enjoy the day. I myself have a few health issues pop up due to stress but with some pills am doing somewhat better. I am praying things get better around here so I can do more than just go through the routine aimlessly. I just wanted to let you know I'm still here,if just in very small doses. I will try to get some things posted after we get daughters room rearranged since she is not here to object. Till then take care and please keep praying for my son.
