Here's some scary little things to decorate your lawn. I wish I had bought one of this cute witches.
The first photo , the things are made of wood, these are made of metal. These would last longer.
I usually just use real things, such as this small pumpkin and mums. I have yet to get my scarecrows out. I am behind on so many things this fall.
These trees are at the academy grounds. That is where the nursing home for the nuns and other Catholics used to be. My sister Jeanie worked there. They have closed the nursing home and transferred all the patients. Now the grounds and buildings are up for sale. It seems sad to me. I hope and pray something very good will be established there, once it's sold. It would be a shame to destroy all the beautiful trees and the chapel.
Can you believe October is half over ? I am wondering, did we have a September? Hope all of you are enjoying some great fall weather and foliage. XO
beautiful photos, I love all the decorations, it is sad when they leave buildings vacant, in our city they build new ones and leave the old ones sitting vacant, such a waste of money! I agree, this month is flying by!ReplyDelete
Laurie, I hate when buildings are just left to fall down. There would be many good uses for them. Hope you have a great weekend. xoxo,SusieReplyDelete
Those trees are truly beautiful. I wish we had better seasons here in California. Some day I will visit the east coast at this time of the year so I can take in all the beauty of the changing colors.ReplyDelete
Maggie, You will always remember the beauty of autumn in the northeast. The state of Penn. is so pretty in Oct. . xoxo,SusieDelete
I like using real and natural things, too, though craftspeople make some really cute wooden and metal decorations! Lovely trees on the Academy grounds. Hopefully they will not be cut down when the property is sold. xo NellieReplyDelete
Nellie, I love the beautiful grounds at the Academy. They have stautes, garden areas, a cemetery . So many nice things there. Hope your weekend is wonderful. xoxo,SusieDelete
Those trees are so beautiful. I don't know where the time goes. I thought it went fast when I was working, but it continues to fly by! Am enjoying it very much though.ReplyDelete
Patty, when I worked I dreamed of retirement and all the things I would do. Well no one told me that time went much faster in retirement. LOL. Or so it seems. Plus the fact the kids grow up too fast. Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
I agree with you, Susie...where does the time go? It's hard for me to enjoy one season, because it seems we jump right into the next so quickly!! The stores already have their Christmas decorations out!! I hate that!!ReplyDelete
Oh well. What can you do?
Have a great weekend, dear friend.
Debbie, I went to Hobby -Lobby over a month ago..I was looking for summer sales, they already had thanksgiving and Christmas things out. It was shocking. I was not ready to think about all that. I hope your weekend is enjoyable and good weather too. Love, susieDelete
HI Susie (:) oh yes the witches are really cute!!ReplyDelete
love the ghosts too'
I usually do not want to buy any of that Halloween stuff...but maybe that is why I thought the witch was so cute. LOL. Hope you have a good evening. xoxo,SusieDelete
The Academy grounds is so pretty with all the Autumn trees. That seems like a nice place to have a chapel. I'm like you, I love to use real things to decorate, and your mums and pumpkin are perfect for the season. I put a little white pumpkin outside my front porch and smile every time I see it.
Have a great weekend, Susie, and thanks for the wishes for Nel. She has been working so hard on getting her Ph.D.
Sheri, I think our Catholic system here is on the wane...the grade school closed this year and the Academy is up for sell. The young girl considering becoming nuns used to be schooled there...so hard to believe , the money isn't there any more. Breaks my heart. I am happy for your daughter, Nel. I know it's hard work to achieve one's dreams, she deserves the degree. xoxo,SusieDelete
Hi Susie, It looks like you are having some fine fall weather . . . it's a bit grey here today, but the weather is mild and I've been enjoying harvesting the last of my garden. Thanks for stopping by my blog , it is always a pleasure having you visit.ReplyDelete
Have a lovely weekend.
Today was our nicest day in many days Connie. But at this very moment 4:30 pm it's very windy and cloudy again. I like visiting your blog , I just don't always get around like I want. Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
Yes, always so very sad when old buildings and grounds are left to decay, hopefully the new owners will take good care of it.ReplyDelete
Love those wooden Halloween yard ornaments, folks are so talented and creative.
Hi Jo, I am hoping who ever buys the grounds and buildings will make a nursing home of it again. It is sad, not all change is good. xoxo,SusieDelete
Thanks for the kind things you said about PA...It is truly beautiful in the fall..Wish it lasted longer..HAve a good weekend..ReplyDelete
Missy, When I saw your state in Oct...I just could not believe all the color and beauty. My husband even said it was amazing. xoxo,SusieDelete
What a shame about that place being for sale, Susie. I hope it comes to some good use and is restored to its full glory one way or another. The grounds are beautiful.ReplyDelete
I didn't do nearly as much for Fall this year as I usually do. Just one of those years. I hope to make up for it at Christmas. xo Diana
Diana, I drove by the Catholic school today and took photos of the playground. No one playing...I think they are still having day care there for now. It's so sad. As for the Academy, it is sad that is where they once taught young ladies to become nuns. Makes my heart sad. xoxo,SusieDelete
Cute photos Susie! I do love autumn so much. Today on my drive to town, I just took my time and marveled at Gods handiwork. The trees are soooo beautiful this year.ReplyDelete
Sorry I haven't been over in awhile. I will try to remedy that. :)
Hi Sandi, So glad you stopped by. I have been laxed about visiting many of my favorite people too. I love all the crafty things you've been making. Hope you are loving your fall. xoxo,SusieDelete
Susie! You are SUCH a sweetheart, I swear you are. I saw you left a "checking on me" note on my poor page that hasn't had an entry in lord knows how long. A million thanks for that. Someone needs to shoot me for not doing any blog walks and all I can say is I'm sorry. No excuse, just awful that I haven't. I got talked into FB for my school's 50th reunion and that hooked me into all the stuff. Well, when I say that, I don't stay online in FB but every once in a while, like today, I post. I looked at it and thought, holy cow, I just posted a blog. Everyone on FB seems to just post cartoons or sayings. I'm not sure what that does for mankind, but, I guess it's what they like. Now to you: flu shots: there's a new one called the High Dose that is recommended for everyone 65 and over. Don't know if you fall into that category but I did. Has side effects. Sore arm is an understatement and I added a raging stiff neck to that. It took a week to all go away, but never felt sick with any of it. Glad it over and done, though. Something for you to think about.ReplyDelete
The wood and metal sculptures are fabulous. I love them all and had I been there, I'm sure I would have spent a fortune -- I am one soft touch and I love crafts. Your deck looks great! Fall, to me, is the most outstanding season of all. I'd love if it stayed this way all year. The temps, the colors, and especially the way light plays on roads and yards -- I call it "dappling". Takes my breath away. My own brand of Heaven on Earth.
IF you do FB, leave me a note on my blog page and we'll get ourselves connected. I miss blogging. Seems so many have left now and the pages sit there like mine, barren and corners bent. Susie, you're so dear. Thanks for thinking of me and checking. You're a jewel :D Xoxoxo
Jenny, so glad you are doing well. Some times I miss others and wonder if they are okay....so I may leave a short hello here and there. LOL. Sounds like you are still having fun. Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
