The day after Halloween is always De-“Booing” Day. Over the years I have collected so many “Boo” items from friends and family that it takes quite awhile to replace “Boo” Halloween decor with fall wreaths, plain pumpkins (no jack o’lanterns) and every thankful fall object I can find.
The first thing on the porch to go was “The Witch is In” sign…now the witch is out…gone (she flew away)… replaced by fall decorations and Boo’s Blessings…the only “Boo” still allowed…me! 🙂
Out with the “pumpkin patch” and ghosts…Gather stays…as in Thanksgiving gatherings…
I am glad I have so many pumpkins because they continue to work…especially the silver ones on the table….I love this time between Halloween and Thanksgiving…a special time to use to remember to be thankful and so grateful for all our blessings.
The butterflies love my new pansy basket and just resting in the sun!

Anne texted me a creative calendar for November on grace and gratitude that is circulating on the internet…love the idea. Not sure I can participate everyday with a photo but the ideas are marvelous…might save some of them and my responses in a ‘grace & gratitude” bucket!

*Ann Graves is doing well with her radiation treatments and won a beautiful handmade quilt… made each year by a generous, talented woman and then given out to one cancer patient in a drawing…Ann’s name was selected! It was definitely a God Wink since she normally would have been finished by now with treatments and thus ineligible…except for some delays that happened to keep her name on the cancer list through October…Congratulations Ann!
Anne Peterson is putting some of her artwork in the Charleston Convention Center Art Exhibit, along with the local fair…Remember this painting…this was the title that won out….
