Gorgeous Gourds and a Give Away

My kids wanted us to decorate for Halloween like we did last year. Cue spider webs across the house, a cemetary in the front yard, and ghosts and ghouls hanging from trees. So not up for it. For once I am thinking less is more. Did I just say that?

 I want to be festive, but with 80 degree weather here, I'm finding it hard. So, I have opted for festive fall decor that has some staying power and doesn't involve slime and pumpkin guts.
How amazing are these? Sadly, I didn't make them. But am running out for more pumpkins as we speak!
I love this topiary from Wallace Gardens. It is so pretty and sophisticated and doesn't involve any carving. 
You know I will put nail heads on anything that will stay still long enough, why not these gourds? So pretty in the creams and grays
And now for the giveaway sponsored by our favorite local shop, Maran Anderson Home. They are giving us a Thomas Paul Skeleton Scarf to give to one lucky winner. He's lavender, light weight an incredibly slimming.
 It retails for $65 and we will be shipping it to one lucky reader and drawing a name on Wednesday, October 31.

Very cute, and I love that it's slimming too, especially after I get my hands on the kids candy! I already follow your blog. Hope you ladies can stop by and enter my Novica giveaway! It's a giftcard and they have so many wonderful things!

I also already follow! I'm inviting my family in Indiana- they need fun pretty things to look at as the skies start to turn grey!
I was never allowed to celebrate Halloween (I know sad) but a fake cemetery with funny quotes to welcome guests always makes me laugh!
