69 Nights and Counting !

I know .. 69 nights away yet and here I am with "Greetings!" .. some what like Voyager in outer space although my outer space is HALLOWEEN ?
I love the retro 30's ? look to this couple .. simple but stylish and cute !
This is my very own couple .. The "Mr." was sent to me from a dear friend in Scotland .. Falkirk in fact .. Halloween theme things are hard to find in Europe .. they aren't as "in" to it as we are .. or certainly me ? So I truly appreciated this fellow .. and this year I was able to find the perfect "Mrs." for him .. she is wearing a very stylish outfit herself ? I found her at my favorite store called Home Sense .. Martha if you are reading this I am still scanning that store like crazy for Halloween .. we are bound to bump into each other before we even have a get together ? LOL
I thought I better post a garden theme picture too .. if you can see this spider's web it is a work of art isn't it ? All webs are and they have a natural Halloween theme all of their own !
I can't seem to alternate pictures on here .. I know there must be a way and I will find it eventually .. simple cards but sometimes simple is perfect too, right ? .. especially when I am in the picture trying to figure out things .. I feel a rant coming on so I better finish up here !

As I sit on my 1930's rehabbed couch and my 1920's lamp lighting up my fingers, I am thoroughly enjoying your Halloween cards.

There are so many different types of spider webs, most common the Orb web. This looks like a Tangled web, but I'm not sure. I went looking for cabbages today because my containers look so bad from the heat - no cabbages just lots of mums.

Hello there Eileen !
Thank you so much ! I do love that time period with art deco too : )
I love spider webs (not on the face though .. which can happen as you walk through your garden eh ? LOL)
I am trying to sort myself out too with looking for Autumn pieces to do my front step with .. only mums here too right now .. but it won't be long so hang in there !

Rebecca girl : ) Thank YOU !
I loved how this photo came out too .. the indigo rattle seeds look wonderful every year .. i try to save some to place with Autumn plants for the front steps .. I'm like a BIG kid playing with them too .. haha

I love Hallowe'en too, Joy. Although I don't go to such great lengths now that the kids are grown and out of the house. For me it marks the beginning of the quiet time of the universe; a kind of "going in", regenerating. Well, I know what I mean...
Cool orb weaver too!!

Hey Joy, I was reading a post and flashed on fall and here you are counting down to Halloween! I am ready for cooler weather just not the whole shebang that comes after! Nice cards! xxgail

Christine girl yes ! I know what you mean .. Autumn is my most favorite time of the year .. it just wakes something up in me that is ready for some beautiful leaves .. yellow moon .. and fun in general ? I don't decorate to any extreme .. I love to do the kitchen/office up because we all come here : ) .. ah yes, regeneration is what I badly need here ! LOL

Hello Gail girl and I bet you could use some cooler weather is right ! I don't want it to rush by .. summer bowled me over for August .. so I want a long leisurely walk through Autumn : )

OH, a halloween jackpot!
I love that second plant, but I am afraid it probably needs shade, right?
