Happy Friday! Thank you everyone for your suggestions on my pattern search. I have ordered 2 books from Amazon that will hlep me make my own patterns.
This past week I got out a few Halloween decorations. I try to change it up and use different ones so I don't get tired of them.
Here is one of my favorites. It is a Dept. 56 Haunted House and Haunted Graveyard. I've added a lot of extras to the set like the trees.
here is spooky shot -
A crime scene! I can see who is to blame, she left her slippers...
Here it is lighted. The green lights are little skulls.
To give you an idea of scale, I displayed it this year atop a dresser in my kitchen.
Here it is with an apple. As you can see, it is quite miniature.
Here is my Living Room mantel decorated. I got the glittered bats at Pier I Imports.
One of my favorite fall recipes. There are only a few ingredients.
Autumn Pumpkin Soup
1 can Pumpkin Pie mix
1 12 oz. can evaporated milk
3 cups chicken broth. (You can use up 6 cups, but I like my soup a little thicker, so I only use 3)
combine ingredients and heat through.
I serve it with sour cream sprinkled with a little nutmeg.
Hope you are enjoying all the sights and flavors of Autumn. It is my favorite time of the year!
