Some Hallowe'en Treats and Fall Stitching

Gentle Friends, as nuts as I am sometimes, I knew after posting yesterday that I wasn't finished with Fall just yet..........


   On the way home from work we needed to stop at the Walgreen's and "bam" right in front they had all the Hallowe'en candy and stuff set up and looking great!!!!  I had to pick up some treats........

.... and when I got home I dug around in the boxes under the stairs where we keep all the festive decorations and things that just don't fit in other closets....  and I pulled out some of my fun Fall exchange pieces I have received over the years ....  and ...... this is the result.......

... and all I got from the "peanut gallery" was how crazy I am and did I realize it is still August????   Oh pishaw, I'm ready for Fall and having some Fallish things out is fun!!  Notice the great bronze topper on the YC, another Fall favorite, I use all year long!!

There you go sports fans, thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!

Take care,
edgar

You are making me want to rush off to the store to buy some candy corn : )

Oh my! I need to avoid Walgreens! Those are such cute little treats, though--I can see why they had to come home with you!
I agree!! It IS time for some Fall decorating! It's hot outside (in MS) and we're just so done with it! What a lovely basket of goodies you have--looks great! I fix a tree for every season/holiday and I'm very anxious to get the Summer stuff off and the Fall going!!!

I love everything about Fall. That Reese's peanut butter cup is looking pretty good! I am so ready to pull out my fall decorations as everything starts to look hot and tired at the end of August around my area. I see a cute PS in your picture it has a squirrel, Indian Corn and two other things that I can't see. What piece is that? Enjoy getting ready for Fall.

Fall decor - bring it on!! Looks good, Edgar!

Looking So great, Edgar!

As for fall, I'm also hanging on to summer b/c it never really warmed up here. BUT your decs are putting me in the mood.

As for my local peanut gallery, he's been making fun of me:

August 5th, walking in Hoboken: "Boy, these Beech trees are looking kinda sickly; see those few yellow leaves? Actually the whole tree is kinda dull."

One week later: brown leaves crunching underfoot "what?!"

Peanut gallery really enjoying himself: "If these trees are sick, they ALL ARE. every beech in town!"

Pishaw is right! No rules about when you can decorate the way you want to. I'll take the Reese's pumpkins!

Akila said...

Wow, lovely treats. You really love fall to start setting it up more than a month ahead :)

Beth said...

What a wonderful group of fall stitches. The Cedar Hills stitch is lovely.

Sandye said...

Bianca said...

What a great display. Happy Fall!

Wanda said...

The candy is making me want to get some! What a beautiful fall display! (It is never too early to decorate for the season - I get that all the time but he really enjoys it nonetheless :) )

Barb said...

I ,for one, have loved seeing all the Fall things. We have had way too much summer in Seattle this year! More high 80's coming this week-end again! Ug!

Shelly said...

I so agree with you! I bought some Halloween kitchen towels and have them hanging on my stove already! As for Halloween candy....umm, I'm trying to stay away from all that, lol.

Everything looks yummy! I love fall! Don't listen to the "peanuts".😆

Julie said...

A sunshiney day here so summers still happening for me... those Reece's pumpkins look delicious.

Bonnie Brown said...

Haloween treats look yummy!
It seems so early for them to be out though LOL

Teresa said...

I don't think you are crazy. If seeing some fall stuff in August makes you happy go right ahead.
