Mr. Smirk

I have decided to name my old concrete pumpkin.

He is now Mr. Smirk.

A fitting moniker don't you think?

I believe I showed him last year but he is worth another look and hey now he has a name.
He is a tad sinister.

Clovis the C-Cat had to get in the image.
Photo hog.

This is our yellow house for those new to the blog.

The side door wreath, all garage sale items. 
There is a rusty jack o' lantern face in it that is difficult to see and we keep thinking there is someone at the door.

 We do not have elaborate outside fall decorations but we do have fun as usual and we are thrifty.
The two wreaths cost less than six dollars for both. I have had Mr. Smirk for maybe twenty or more years.

may joy and peace surround you

  12. Oh I like Mr. Smirk, Olive. I think he is cute...Stop by and sign up for my giveaway if you have a chance....Christine

  13. Oh Miss Olive, the face at the door is a hoot -- I would be jumping every time I passed that door. A rusty iron face, no less.

    And you have a see-ment punkin? Wherever did you get him? He's really neat. Mr Smirk is a rock star.

    Haha -- rocks. Cement. Yeah.

    Meanwhile the cat is a supermodel, you can just tell.

    And I think it's bedtime for me. I'm getting blog loopy.

  14. Love Mr. Smirk - so cool a looking dude...

  15. Glad you're not looking at Mr. Smirk's face in your door, that would be very creepy...eeeck! Love those Georgia clay pumkins! xoxo
