I dusted everything and then began to work on my old (1975) bultler's tray table. It's my very first piece of good furniture (EA) and the memory keeps me from letting it go, even though the handles are sagging. ha.
I am one of those. ha.
Halloween is a time when kids and grownups can both have a little fun.
I mean pumpkins, candy, decorations, parties, and costumes are fun for everyone. Halloween is not just a kid's fun time anymore.
Some folks go "dark" but I think the "lighter" side of Halloween is fine, and even fun.
If one looks at the French, and maybe European, tradition of all saints day, the "all hallows eve" (i.e. Halloween) was to frighten away any evil spirits before all saints day.
I created a graphic to show the things I added to the parlor. Normally I think of these things as being too rustic to go with the fine woods, etc. But, for a fall touch I believe that I can get away with the extra texture that rustic items have. I will probably dress things up again for Christmas, but for some fall fun...I'm game.
I brought in lots of texture with the basket and nubby throw. The old bottle and pot of boxwood also pull in a relaxed vibe. Now, I just need a cup of spiced tea and the throw wrapped around me. We are having cool mornings and evenings now!
