Spookley the Ghost Pillow


I don't know if you recall the little Halloween pillow I made a couple of years ago.  
He was inspired by a pillow I had seen at Target.
(You can read about it here.)

I named him Jack........

Jack the Pumpkin pillow was one of my more popular posts 
here at Random Thoughts.

When I began decorating for Halloween this year, 
I put Jack in his rightful spot on my sitting room sofa.  

Then I got to thinking.

Wouldn't it be nice if Jack had a friend?
Because who doesn't want a fun friend to hang out with as we
anticipate the arrival of Halloween.

Enter Spookley the Ghost..............

Spookley is, like Jack, made of soft fleece
and is all hand stitched.

Nothing fancy here.  

I drew Spookley free hand so I could have him just the way I wanted him,
but there are tons of ghost templates on the internet
should you not wish to draw your own.

They look kind of cute together, don't they?

 The countdown to Halloween is on!

Vintage Halloween in the Dining Room

Hello all! 

My computer issues have finally been resolved.  
We ended up buying a new computer!

I'm sure I've missed lots of Fall & Halloween fun in the past week.
Try as I might, I'll never get caught up on visiting
all of you to see everything I missed last week. 

I pulled out my vintage looking Pumpkin head people for Halloween.  
I know you've probably seen them before.
 I love them, so I display them every year,
in different ways.

Traditional Halloween colors of
black, orange, silver & white.
Lots of glitter too.

Here's a closer look:

I can't believe we are almost halfway through October already.  
Just where does the time go?
Halloween will be here before we know it.

Enjoy the week, my friends!
See you soon.

Golden Sunflowers Tablescape

Ahh yes, tablescaping...my long lost friend. 
I have missed you.

I had a few extra minutes and thought aloud,
"I need a pretty tablescape!"
(which I do realize may seem sad to some who just don't get it.  lol)

So here goes:

The warm colors of Fall are always a welcome sight this time of year.


You may recall seeing some of these items 
from my other tablescapes.
Nothing is new here.

Wicker placemats from Pier 1.
Bronze chargers from Michaels.
Orange Dinner plates from Walmart, Better Homes & Gardens collection.
Sunflower plates from Christmas Tree Shop.
Napkins from Bed, Bath & Beyond.
Flatware...a mystery.  For the life of me, I can't remember!
Park Lane wine glasses from local antique shop.
Amber bubble goblets were borrowed from my sister 
(I believe she got them at Tuesday Morning)
Burlap runner from Home Goods.
Black enamel splatterware coffee pot from local antique shop.


The tree looking out the dining room window
had not changed when I took these photos several weeks ago.  
 It's turning a vibrant red now. 

Thank you for visiting me today.
Happy Fall!

Just an fyi:  I'm having computer
issues, which I'm hoping are resolved soon.
I could scream... it's all very frustrating.
