Welcome to Seasonal Sundays.

Halloween Mantel 021

You know you’re getting old when your youngest decides…

…that she will decorate the mantel for Halloween and…

…to create…

OOOOhhh..love those ghoulies and ghosties. Your daughter did a spooktacular job on your mantel and fireplace. Wish she'd come over and fix mine. I finally gave up on it. Thanks for hosting a great party and be careful of those "long leggedy beasties and things that go bump in the night".

Your daughter is very talented. She put together an awesome Halloween Mantle.
I don't decorate for Halloween since all my kids are adults now and have left the nest.
I miss those days of the young people and their excitement for life!

My Halloween decorations come out today! I've been so behind and there is no spooky decor anywhere. Your daughter has most certainly inherited some decorating genes from her mother! Glad I could join up with the party- even late. LOL
