Happy Halloween! Before this day of spooky fun is gone, I wanted to let one lucky reader know that she is the winner of the Melanie O’Hara Traveling Tea Ladies mystery books and other tea related items. It was lucky number…

Congratulations Jenny! I will be emailing you tomorrow to get your mailing address. Thank you to all of you for your very kind words in the last few posts. It has been such fun for me to read! I have another giveaway planned for November so please stay tuned. With Thanksgiving coming, I think you are really going to like this one.
I also wanted to do one final post on the last of our Halloween decorating. This time we are going out on the back porch for tonight’s Halloween dessert bar.
I had already planned to serve the meal inside, but I wanted to use the porch for the dessert area. But it was really too chilly to eat out on the porch tonight – even if it was just dessert. So I just set up a few drinks on the table and the dessert items in the serving area – brownies, sea salt caramel gelato, various Halloween candies, a caramel sauce, a chocolate fudge sauce, and whipped cream. We served out there but brought it inside to eat.
For the porch chalkboard, I simply listed as many candies as I could think of (afterall, what is Halloween without candy?) My husband had to help me brainstorm the last few.
Would you believe my mother skipped the brownies to have a doughnut in the kitchen?? (She really loves doughnuts.)
And here is a quick tour around the rest of the porch.
The old desk…
The wicker sofa wearing its new orange pillows…
And the wicker swing looking like a lady wearing its new orange shawl.
And that finishes up all the Halloween decorating for 2014. I am sorry I did not get to do any seasonal decorating in the playroom this year, but I have a good excuse. It is currently overflowing with furniture from my workroom. (I want to call it an office, but that sounds more formal than what it really is.) My husband has finished putting in new flooring for me and is currently building a storage cabinet in there. And I am pondering what I want to do with the walls and drapes for that room. It is a small space, but I am sooo looking forward to it being my room.Yippee!Here is the empty space before the flooring went in. (I will try to do a full post on it all soon.)
Hope you have a great weekend in store as we start the new month of Thankfulness – November. Can you believe it is snowing right now in the mountains of North Georgia???? Crazy, huh? Stay warm!
Until next time…
