I Am So Into Fall

I am so into fall I am also into Halloween already ya’ll. The dining room table at our yellow house has been evolving every weekend into a Halloween tablescape.

Joe keeps picking up the odd decoration at a garage sale or thrift store and it just grows.

I am just as bad of course.

We are sickos.

Every item on the table came from a garage sale or thrift store including the vintage table cloth. I used Marty’s method of cleaning this piece and it worked so wonderfully well! Thanks bunches Marty!

Is not my zombie a stinker? He is a Happy Meal toy. I adore him and have had him for years. Pull his left arm and his face changes.

Behold, now he is a Mummy! He might just make some more photos on the blog. I cannot help myself.

Zombie love.

I have a lot of close ups of the vintage table cloth that will be another post. Because it is a beauty.

I am linking to Marty’s link party at A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday.

Please visit the others for more loveliness and less zombies.
