I decorated our Parlor mantel.
Lots of bats.
Even sleeping bats.
I found the bat silhouettes at Michaels, all cut out and ready to hang; how easy was that decorating?
This season, if you want to go
silhouette-happy at a bargain basement price,
check out Dollar Tree's Halloween offerings.
Yes, I went silhouette-happy.
They are smaller silhouettes than the ones I got at Michael's,
but they are also way cheaper.
So I plan on sticking them -- literally -- everywhere.
In a couple of weeks, you won't be able to look in a mirror or out a window
at That Old House without this looking back at you:
Don't you think these cunning lil' rodents are just the thing
to scamper up and down the conservatory window frames?
Anyway -- just a heads-up because you know how fast the best stuff at Dollar Tree sells out.
Is it odd to use best stuff and Dollar Tree in the same sentence?
That cute little pumpkin with the "Give Thanks" is also a Dollar Tree buckaroo buy.
It is really cute and can stay out till Thanksgiving. We like multi-tasking.
Can you believe the North East is getting battered by rain today?
Other parts of the USA need rain but it's the last thing we need right now.
We are not out from under the last storm; there are people in New Jersey still without power,
and many without homes at this point; their flood-damaged places have been condemned or need rebuilding.
Every county in the state has been declared a disaster area (and no cracks about New Jersey and disaster areas!).
And . . . all this rain is bringing down the leaves. Too soon!
Go away, rain and wind. Come back in 4 weeks, please.
|Leaves on the sunroom roof. Blargh!|
Now I'm putting away my cheapo silhouettes in a safe place . . .
meaning I will look for them in October and not find them until Groundhog Day.
I hope I still have the ones I used last year!

I'm crazy late with this post -- almost didn't bother but I did want to share the Dollar Tree silhouettes.
Tomorrow? Tropical Storm Irene and our Beach House -- Cass
