Picture Perfect Halloween Decor!

I begged my good friend, Jill, to please send me photos of her home all decorated for Halloween...

Now that I'm somewhat of a minimalist with my inside decorating, I can drool over all of her beautiful Halloween decorations! Her home is so cheerful and colorful that I really wanted to share it with you!

I've been trying to talk her into starting her own blog because she has such a gift for decorating...

...and she's so creative with the way she displays everything...

Jill lives in a beautiful old farmhouse that she and her husband have lovingly restored over the years...


Awwww - look at that guard dog on duty!! Isn't she just too cute??? (Jill, if you had a blog, you could put lots of pictures of Abbey on it!)

Did I mention that Jill loves The Wizard of Oz? Big time!

She's also a huge animal lover like so many of us ... (And here's someone else who would like to appear on your blog, Jill, if only you had one!!! hint -hint)

So thank you for taking the time to send all of these photos for me to post on my blog...


They're all fantastic! I sure wish we lived closer to each other so I could come by in person!

I agree! She needs to start blogging. Call her up and tell her we are begging her to start one. I would love to see more. Her decor is wondeful and her animals are down right darling!

Love all the Halloween decor you've posted. Your friends and your home look wonderful. I've been reading through missed posts and I love your beautiful vintage Mary garden statue & your Pumpkin Scarecrow is adorable. I especially loved your tribute to sweet Mr. O'Malley (Sept 21) What a beautiful dog!
