Home for Halloween

Some say all hearts come home for Christmas....
While I dearly love Christmas, it is Halloween that steals my heart and calls me home....

And no matter how long I've been gone or how wretched of a blogger and follower I am, Blogland is my "home" when it comes to social media.  The friendships made here run deep and last longer than any I've made elsewhere...

And we have had us some amazing Halloween fun along the way....Halloween blog hops, scavenger hunts, 13 Days of Halloween post challenges...and more.  So, I guess it really is no surprise that my thoughts turn to Blogland during Spooking Season.

I haven't decorated a great deal this year either despite my best intentions. Some life-altering events have seen to that (more on those in another post, another time)...but I thought I'd share a bit of what I did manage.

(In my laundry room)

(Dolls from Kimberley at Red Cupboard Post; punch needle by Debbie St. Germain at Woolensails; "All Hallows Eve" tuck by Robin at The Primitive Hutch; Blackbird tuck by Jen at taylorsfarmhouseattic; and other stitcheries by Susan Hoover at Olde Threads....and you thought I didn't remember.... ;o) ) 

(My dear skelly girl from years and years ago....Pumpkin by Old Lady Morgan)

(Some of my vintage papier mache jack-o-lanterns)

(Black kittehs by Dru at Cinnamon Creek)

(Laundry room)

(One of my very first Halloween he definitely qualifies as "vintage")

Thanks to all of you who "left the light on"....this prodigal child is home for now.
