For Columbus Day weekend Kiel and I were packed and ready to go up North
for a relaxing mini vacation in the White Mountains. Sadly we had to
cancel our trip as a last minute issue with work came up, and we spent a
good portion of our weekend at the factory. Even though I was
disappointed, we made the most of the weekend and had a chance to
decorate our house for Halloween. We stopped at a local Farm and loaded
up our Jeep with mums, cornstalks, pumpkins, and gourds. Originally we
intended to dress up our walkway, but created the “Autumnmobile”
instead. I’m not sure how the neighbors feel, but I really like driving
up to it.
The leftover pumpkins and gourds were used to decorate
the inside of our house, particularly our mantle. I also went out and
bought a few decorations from Pottery Barn (my new obsession) and added a
pumpkin tree or two from Trader Joe’s (They are the cutest!). After we
finished decorating we relaxed to a roaring fire. It looks so festive
and cozy that I’m tempted to keep the house this way until Thanksgiving.
