~~~A Haunting Entry!!!~~~

It's getting time for Trick or Treat and even though we don't get any trick or treaters:(:( I still want to make our entry an inviting spot, so I have added a few thing. Yesterday Joe and I took a little day trip and I got this small "bushel" basket. I could have gotten a full sized one but chose the smaller one for this space. I also bought some gourds to put in it. I started taking pictures at dusk and kept taking them til the light was just right! BTW, does anyone know how to get stains out of concrete? The workers evidently got something on the step and I can't seem to get it out and it is bugging me:):)
 I have mixed real and faux gourds, can you tell which are which??
 I also wove a berry garland around.

 And added some votive candles to light the way.
 Each votive holder has a different shaped leaf hanging from it. We have 2 of these black lanterns, one is on a hook by the sidewalk. Joe was collecting lanterns WAY before they were all the rage:)

 Ah, now the light is good
 Please, come on in!

Thanks for your visit. Happy Halloween week everyone! We have a halloween party at the clubhouse next week so today I got some things to wear:) I didn't dress up last year so this year I will. Have a great week!!!!

  1. Everything looks great! I spilled stain on my concrete when I was staining my front door. It's driving me crazy but I can't figure out a way to get it up.

  2. Pinky,
    Love, love, love your pumpkins and gourds in the basket turned on its side!!! Very inviting front porch, dear friend!!!

  3. Pinky, love this porch decor. It is creative and tasteful and certainly festive! It really flows beautifully.

    Blessings, Dana

  4. Love your fall vignette on your steps Pinky, especially the basket withyour harvest of gourds!
    I've heard you can use Muriatic Acid (available from Lowe's) to remove stains from concrete but haven't tried it. I don't know if it would work to spot clean or if you'd have to use it on the whole area :)

  5. Oh Pinky, this looks perfect. What a nice way to invit trick or treaters. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  6. Such a cute front porch. Love the little lights in with the pumpkins and gourds and how you kept taking pictures until you got the right light.

  7. So cute, Pinky! I really like mixing real and faux. That pottery jack-o-lantern is super-cute!

  8. oh this pumpkin candle holder is the cutest!

  9. And a haunting one it is!....Looks so beautiful in the candlelight! Beautiful job Pinky!

  10. I Love your Autumn vignette. Very nice! Thanks for linking it up with us at Twirl and Take a Bow. Hope you'll join us again any Tuesday! ~Tammy
