A Not So Spooky Front Porch

"May the only spirit you chance to meet,
Be the spirit of love and warm friends sweet. . . ."


Sunshine has decided that Fall is here--time to put on her Good Witch hat and move to the front porch--where she can ward off spooks and goblins and vampires--especially vampires. . . .

See. . . .she has the garlic ready. . . .

Her Blackbirds are trained to warn her of impending danger. . . .


  and of one mischievous feline named Mr. Smokey.


Harvest is a busy time of the year for Sunshine. . . .


. . . . a little leaf raking and garden work during the day. . . .


as she gathers the pumpkins and gourds she's been tending
all summer long. . . .
and puts fresh hay in the condo for her feathered friends. . . .


 Best of all, she's cooking up candied apples and goodies for all those
 good ghosts and goblins--
come Halloween night. . . .

and brewing magic potions of "toe of frogs" and "eye of newt" to
 Scare away the "Bad". . . .


But, today it appears she's having to stand guard. . . .


"I wouldn't try that if I were you, Mr. Smokey. . . ."



"Oh, yeah?"
(Just look at the cattitude!!!!)



Poor Sunshine. . . .She has her work cut out for her with that one. . . .

"This is the time for goblins and bats,
Halloween spirits, ghosts and cats,
Weird happenings and witches brew,
A Happy Halloween I wish for you."

Oh how beautiful! I love every single piece of your decor. I know it is just a beautiful fall there on the farm.

Nice display, but Mr. Smokey really caught my attention! I'm a cat lover...how many do you have? I must admit that a lot of my decor or lack of is centered around what the cats will do to it when I turn my back.

Thanks for your comments on my blog. Slipcovering my office chair was so much fun and very easy. I chose to make two covers...One for the back and one for the skirt. So much easier than trying to attach them. :)

Your porch is so festive! Mr. Smokey certainly is curious but then again he may just have his sights on capturing one of the crows.
