Once upon a midnight dreary,
while I pondered weak and weary

Edgar Allen Poe, compliments of The Graphic Fairy

While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there
came a tapping,
As of someone gently rapping,
rapping at my chamber door -

I feel it in my bones.
Yes, folks FALL is coming.
We have had three days of rain,
and a constant tornado warning.
 But it has brought cooler nights and cooler days.

Yes, folks FALL is coming and
that means HALLOWEEN is around the corner.

My best halloween bud, Theresa and I
have searched the county over
for halloween. 

Trust me when I say we don't need
anything, I mean nothing, nothing new at all.

We both have been avid halloween collectors
for a long time.  Decorating and parties is what
its about for us.  So we always search out every
shop in hopes there will be something new.


A wonderful set of 4 plates, a raven, skelton, rat and owl.

Dollar Tree has the packages of halloween
creepy cloth and some great looking spiders.

Midnight Dreary plate is on a tombstone as a placemat.
They will look tons better setting on a black plate.
I had fun playing with a few of my recent
purchases today. 

Now that we may be having cooler weather
I can tackle the attic and begin
bringing down decorations.

Hoping everyones dreary weather is over.

Are you as excited about Fall and Halloween?
Happy Labor Day,  Blessings  Kathy
