The Skeletons Got Out

Outside that is.
This year our town did a benefit
for children.
The businesses in town purchased
a straw bale for $15.00
and we were to decorate it how you wanted.   
The monies were to benefit the towns children's
fund to send unfortunate children
 in our county to camp.
A great cause indeed!

We decided to continue our skeleton theme
to the outside of our store.

We took this skeleton fence 
and placed it around our bale.
We added a tombstone and a skeleton.

I painted the pumpkins.
One is the name of our antique store
~Back Porch Antiques~
The other our candy store name
~ The Candy Jar~
Ant the third just a spooky word

Our scary scarecrow sits on our bench.
Bob posted on our Facebook page
for everyone to come sit next 
to him and take a selfie.
We had lots of folks do just that! 

Yesterday my friends all got together.
Te 5 of us went shopping in our small river town.
Had lunch and then came back to my house.
We decided next month to have a sleepover
at of my friends Summer home at the tip
of the Thumb in Michigan.
We are so excited to do this!

At the restaurant there was 
a severe thunderstorm warning.
It was hailing pretty bad.
Very unusual for Michigan.
But then again it was in the high 50's.
So weird for Autumn around here. 

Well off to finish my hooked rug, and work 
on my October CupboardScape.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
Did you have unseasonably warm weather
for your Autumn weekend thus far?

Skeletons Escape Blessings To All!


  1. great decorating! We are very cold no warmth here.
    so fun to get together with friends.

  2. This is so scary FUN!! Love how you put together all these Halloween ideas and created some spooky delight for customers and community!! Your store is a perfect Halloween Trick or Treat stop too! How fun it would be for a child to be able to select a little bag of favorites for special treats in their costumes!!

    1. I cannot wait to pass out candy at the store this year. It will be fun! Thanks for stopping by. Janice
