So glad that you found me! My blog is about everything I love like gardening, decorating my home & garden and crafting.

HaPpY HaLlOwEeN!

You know we don't really celebrate Halloween here in Germany, but tonight we've had a fair share of "trick or treat" kids ringing at the door and of course we gave them sweets. My daughter has made us this Jack-O-Lantern (with two different sides/faces) out of the pumpkin that I've had for display on my patio table and I've used the content of the pumpkin for a tasty soup. Now we are watching the Halloween episode of Charmed lol so at least we also have had a bit of Halloween feeling tonight! Boo!


~*~*~ Happy Halloween! ~*~*~

Oh, what great latern! I hope you enjoyed your Halloween night! I am so sad, guess what! I had a very stressy day at the office today and had to stay longer than expected. And by the time I got home, all trick and treaters had already finished their tour... ;-(((

Wonderful decor for the season, Carol, and you got a nice treat out of it too! We didn't have many trick-or-treaters this year, too cold, but all the more candy for me. (That's aside from the three practice bags I ate leading up to Halloween) My bad. And your pictures very good!
