BOO! Tuesday this Aussie family will celebrate HALLOWEEN too!

It is always wonderful to remember family and friends with a celebration or an event and We love halloween here in this humble little house as it reminds us of dear friends in America......................but also our dad who passed away a couple of years ago, you see he was from Scotland and I know they too love to celebrate hallowe'en as well. He would have as a child run around the streets with turnips instead of pumpkins and I am sure dad and his mates would as children had a great time.

So this is my humble little lounge room filled with filled with just a few of our halloween treasures I have collected over the years.
This is dedicated to all those out there, friends and family whom I treasure just like these little pieces found in my home in other words our lounge room simply say's "welcome to all"

This is my Monday............happy Halloween to all! tomorrow

It all looks so Halloween-y!! I like the little witch in the "Boo!" dress and the little house. That is so nice that you are celebrating this somewhat American holiday. I didn't know they also had it in Scotland.

Everything looks very festive. I love the owl decoration next to the clock!

Hi Lee-Ann, glad to see you back, even if it is with a BOO!

Love all your little Halloween knick knacks and it's lovely that you have wonderful memories attached to them.

I don't think we will get any trick or treaters here. Our road is about 4 km in length, in the country and our driveway is over 500 metres long with no lighting. A bit spooky for kids, however you never know and I've got some sweets just in case. If no-one comes, I'll eat them, lol!

Enjoy yourself!

Hugs xoxo

Dear Lee-ann
I just love all your decorations
and love your clock on the mantle. that Motel at the end of street always seems to have a lot of people there more so now the weather getting warmer it seems to be full nearly every week end. theres a Skate park just been built on the foreshore right opposite the motel. Take care keep smiling.

Hi Lee-Ann, I came back and have had a delightful time going back through your posts and getting to 'know' you. You have a house that is truly a home, and a wonderful family. Your grandchildren are obviously well loved,(and so is their nanni !)
Have a happy (and spooky !) Hallowe'en.

You have done such a wonderful job in decorating for Halloween. This is one of my most favorite holidays because of my father too! This will be the beginning of the holidays without my mom so it is going to be hard. My hubby and I always go each year to their home and give out candy with them. Dad has had his candy ready since early October.

Here is to a wonderful Halloween and the memory of your dad. All the best.

I'm so glad you enjoyed my Drive through New England. I hope you have time to read some more of the trips. Chances are there are other places there which you have visited and will bring back good memories. Thanks for coming by again.

Oh my, you have some lovely decor for Halloween.

I rarely save anything. My dad saved rusty nails, and I think I grew up hating the mess.

and what I do keep, I put in my storeroom and forget to pull it out for the seasons -- and if I do remember to bring it out, I forget to put it away and the old ceramic pumpkin will still be out in Januariy's snow.

Glad you enjoyed the Daisy Lupin Halloween Story Circle.

I love your warm, cozy and festive! The owl is my favorite, because I love owls! The clock...oh my! We have one just exactly like it, I think. I need to look in the closet and see the design on the front. We brought it from my parent's estate and I have not got it set out yet. I will look and let you know! :o)
