Yeah, I know it's overkill

And that's okay with me. Halloween overkill is just what I do.
A close up with some of our Halloween guys.
And that is my favorite little vintage glass lamp ever, but the lampshade needs help. I'm thinking Polka dots. I'm usually thinking Polka Dots...or stripes....stripes are nice.

Halloween clutter around the fireplace in full. The painting is one of my Mother's landscapes, it's hard to see the true colors and textures of it through this picture. My Mom is a fantastic fine artist, as is my Grandmother, but did I get any of that talent? Noooope. I can make cutesy left and right and upside down, but never could I just pick some oil paints and whip up something like this. That's okay though... I wouldn't have the Lumplings if I didn't do cute.
We took the kids to the most popular pumpkin patch around North Georgia, Burt's Pumpkin Farm.

We always let them pick out a special pumpkin or squash to bring home and Finn picked out this knobbly little green thing. Look how freaking excited he is about that weird ass little green thing! It has a place of honor on top of his dresser with all of his other treasures.

Weird kid. Where in the world does he get that from?

ahem.

Hans got to pick out his own special wheelbarrow. Aw.

This weekend I'm working on several Lumplings and Pillows, so hopefully next week I'll have some things to put up in the shop.

I have come out of "lurkdom" to let you know I love your Halloween display! Too much of a good thing can be wonderful and frankly, is never enough! We have a special love of Halloween here in our house also -- my dear hubby and I met at a Halloween party and were married on Halloween! Your treasures--and your blog--are fabulous!
