But I mentioned before that we're having a milder than usual season this year and that's added to my ever growing anticipation for Autumn. Maybe it's our Practical Magic Fall Blog Party. I've been brewing up all sorts of ideas for my post as well as trying to come up with a party giveaway. Both would have a Fall theme so I've been going through old magazines and books for inspiration.
Michael's already put out their Autumn things a few weeks ago although surprisingly they don't have as much Halloween out as they normally would by this time (or is it just me?)
I broke down during yesterday's visit and bought this year's first addition to my crow collection. How could I resist a glitter covered crow and I HAD to use that 40% off coupon for something! Plus, doesn't he look fab on this wire candelabra I found at the thrift store for $3? I think I should be truly inspired now and those ideas will start pouring out like warm cider and hot buttered rum any minute. And just in case you're dreaming of a Halloween Soiree in the woods like I am here are a few of my favorite inspirations from Country Living.
