I have always decorated for
Autumn and Halloween
in a BIG way.
This year is no exceptionBut I'm into things this time around
that I have
been into before.
I have discovered
skeleton, pumpkin and cat dolls.

Nothing in my house will ever be the same.
I LOVE these. Absolutely smitten.

Something sweet and endearing about them.
I see them with
a childlike innocence and wonderment.
I can NOT sew very well
 so there is no sense in me
buying a
to make one.
I would LOVE nothing more.
I have searched high and low.
Finding a REAL primitive doll 
for this season
in an antique/secondhand store
has proven fruitless.

So I guess I will stick to
the FABULOUS fakes
I found in Joann Fabrics.
They MADE my day.

I love Halloween decor. But I never put anything up. I was in Joann's the other day and saw some cute Halloween things.

I love going in to Joann Fabrics. They always have something new I can't resist. I'm thinking that next week in honor of September I'll start putting some fall decorations out. They are very cute! Hope you have a great Labor Day Weekend!

Autumn has always been my favorite time of year and I'm crazy about Halloween decorations.
Unfortunately, they seem out of place here in the bowels of West Texas.
Perhaps I could paint an armadillo orange??

TT, go to eBay and do a search for "halloween primitive" and don't hate me for enabling your addiction, LOL. They have some great stuff listed.
Your decorations are great. I love fall and Halloween, too ~

I have so many decorating ideas and holiday baking ideas; but never seem to have the time to carry through with them. Do you go on ? There are tons of ideas on there all the time for decorating and such. Love that site.

Oh, I LOVE them too!! I absolutely love Fall and Halloween!!!

There are many websites if you use the word primitives as a search. I usually go to Lancaster for these type things and often it can be so disappointing to get home and find a tag "made in China." Did you see my cat that was a gift? I love him! I may get to Lancaster in the next few weeks. If I do I will keep an eye out for you.

You are absolutely right, your decor is very pretty. Love it!
