Welcome to the weekend view- and happy halloween!
This week- the weekend view is all about Halloween plans, the goats and sweet Juliette’s first Halloween.
The Cutest Pumpkin
Juju is most definitely the cutest little pumpkin in the pumpkin patch. We snapped a few quick photos recently in between the drizzly weather. Since those pumpkins will be on the porch for a bit – we are planning another photo shoot and she will be wearing her little orange pumpkin costume.
Kevin & Clover
These two. I tell you. Yesterday my husband let Kevin and Clover out on the lawn to wander a bit while he was out there working. I was working in the cottage and had the door open to let fresh air in. And Kev wandered right on in as well- and he tried to sample the faux Christmas Tree I was decorating. These two tend to get into all kinds of mischief wherever they go.
I have been stockpiling vintage ornaments. Old mercury glass, velvet, satin you name it. And I recently scored a big set of old handmade beaded ornaments. I have to be honest, I wasn’t 100% on them- they are a tad wild and unruly in some ways. But I had an idea and figured I would give them a try and see how they looked- They are a pale blue with green velvet and pearls. And they actually have inspired a completely different look than originally planned. Stay tuned to see where they add a little Merry & Bright.
We don’t usually do too much for Halloween over here. We would take the kids trick or treating when they were younger or occasionally have some of their friends over for a party. Otherwise- it is more of a low-key kind of evening- and we are laying low watching scary movies out by the fire pit. Though I might have to try to convince my husband to carve a pumpkin.
These Pumpkin Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies look AMAZING.
And there is Just ONE WEEK LEFT to grab the Holiday Bundle full of Inspiration from some of my favorite friends. I included an Ebook full of favorite ways to Create a Cozy Holiday Home. You can see what is included and grab your holiday bundle HERE
