This week- I decided to start dressing up the window boxes on our house.
I have a window box on nearly every window- they really add charm!
I knew right away after seeing Debbie at Lakehouse' planter box filled with fall and flowers,
that I would be pulling out the pumpkins and loading some window boxes up!!

I haven't gotten too much done yet...
I just put in a couple of little white pumpkins,
a big warty one and a few sugared bits...
here's the start...

Love the red geranium, bacopa and pumpkins mingling together!
I'll be working on getting some more done this weekend!

Last week's party was so much fun!
I cannot believe it has already been a month since I started hosting this party!
I have met so many new friends and gotten so much inspiration!
Thanks so much for joining in!!!

It's hard to choose a couple posts to highlight because they are all so wonderful and I don't know how I feel about highlighting really- I want to highlight everyone!!
But I know it is so much fun to be recognized.
So here are a couple that stood out for me last week:

Debbie at Lakehouse has a most inspiring window box- just delightful! Here's my window box inspiration!

High Street Cottage shared a darling shabby painted tub-
white chippy paint and gorgeous reds together- two of my Favorites!!

Spooky Halloween mantle inspiration from Nita over at modvintagelife!
She has some fantastic creative Halloween ideas!! Love that mirror!

Thanks so much to all of you who participated in last weeks party!
Hope you were able to visit a lot of the other participants and gather up inspiration!

So... let's get this party started!!
