Funtastic Friday #148

Welcome back to another Funtastic Friday!
We are so glad you're here.
We're still in decorating mode for Fall and Halloween.
I really just need to set aside a few hours to get it all done,
instead, I seem to be just pulling out a little at a time.
And I keep finding these great ideas for some new items like Marie's sweater pumpkins.

Carrie has this fun idea to display her kid's costumes over the years.

Kristin is working on bringing Fall to her front door.

And I've got some tricks up my sleeve with our spooky Halloween mantle.

Now on to this week's party!
Can't wait to see all your Halloween and Autumn ideas!

Funtastic Friday #144

I've been busy making Christmas lap quilts this week.
Trying to get a jump start on holiday presents.

It's hard to think holidays when it's 99 degrees out!
Can't wait for cooler weather!
Even though we're sweltering,
I'm starting to decorate for Fall.
I've got my Pumpkins board up.

And now trying to find something fun for the front door
that says "Autumn".
