Just some cute Halloween Treats at the chocolate factory inside the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. I was there for 4 days last week. My first time in Vegas. I think everyone should see it at least once. I dont think I have ever been anywhere quite like it. It and the fact that Thanksgiving is on Monday got me thinking its time to start my fall decorating. First things first. I started with my urns in front of my house.

I tried it first with just the pumpkins and some gourds around the bottom, but it didn't look quite right.

So I went to the hardware store and bought me a big roll of burlap. I have seen it used many times and in many ways here in Blogland.

I wrapped it around the bottom of the pumpkin and added the gourds and baby pumpkins. I think it looks much better. I also added a garland of fall leaves. Not bad. I usually have a bale of hay and decorate it but last year the squirrels and the racoons kept taking all my stuff. And since I love my squirrels and I don' want to get mad at them, I have passed on that for this year.

Here is a cute little pumpkin face I got from a girl at work. Her friend is making them 10 dollars each. I thought it was cute and a great price so I bought me one.
It is just a slice of a log with two little hearts for eyes and a few more pieces to make a nose and mouth. I like it. Till next time, be good, Frances


  1. The urns look great! And thats the only picture you are putting up from Vegas?!?!?! Come can do better than that!!!

  2. Oh and as an update. the squirells have now eaten all of my gourds and the top of one of my pumpkins. brats they act just like my children. oh well I would get madder but like my children i kind of love them and get a real kick out of them....
