No Function Friday - Porch Halloweeny-fied!

Yep, I make up words all the time! :)  "Halloweeny-fied" has a mighty fine ring to it if I don't say so myself!

So, as promised (although a little late today), I finally got pictures of my front porch all Halloweeny-fied! 

My $2 candleabra from the Christmas Tree Shoppe!  I LOVE that place! :)

WAIT!  Before I show you anymore pictures, you know I always feel the need to point out my shortcoming and beg for designer forgiveness! 

Yes, my pillows are still all summery looking!  I actually have outdoor fall looking fabric I got on clearance at Joanne's a couple months ago recently that I haven't gotten around to making slipcovers out of of!  

And yes, I do have a bright green extension cord for my lights!  I had good intentions to replace it with an appropriate one...but you know time gets away from you and before you know it's two weeks before Halloween and your all like...f-it.  Yeah, that's pretty much where I am with the green extension cord now.

Oh...and mums!  Yep, I actually do plan to buy a mum for my red planter I moved by the door.  But it could easily slip into the green extension cord category. ;)

Ok, phew....I fell better!!  Moving on: 

My Halloween Ribbon Wreath from this post, I forgot needed something to HANG from, duh, so I added this bow and some ribbon to hang it from.

Here's some of the goodies spread throughout my flower bed:

My little mum that was transplanted last year.  We weren't sure if it was truly a mum, but saved it anyway just in case...last year it sprouted one flower.  This year, she's growing up. ;)

And a Praying Mantis even stopped by to add to the outdoor fun!!

Ok, so there you have it!  My Halloweeny-fied front porch and flower bed! :)  Most of the stuff in the pictures I've had for years.  I just add one or two items to it ever year.  

One last thing...Melissa at Bursts of Creativity is having a Halloween tag giveaway!!  She did 5 tags everyday this week and they are FABULOUS!  Stop by and check them out and tell her which one you'l like to win! :)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! :)

Until next time...

  6. I really love that wreath! The whole porch and flower bed looks sooo spooky-cute! I am ashamed to say that I have not one meager Fall decoration on my porch as of right now. Matter of fact, I still have all of my patriotic stuff from Labor Day out! Oh well, I suppose it will get done now that I have some help at home each day. (wish it wasn't for the reason it is...)

    You did a great job overall with everything you did inside as well. And you made most of that in a week! So I wouldn't be apologizing for anything if I was you there missy! lol

    Have a wonderful weekend!
