kitchen spookiness

snippits of the kitchen!
I probably have too much stuff.....
but, when everything is sooo cute, how can I help it?
some of my favorite things above.. all made by my friend Kelly!
I have this long shelf that goes around two sides of my kitchen.. always fun to decorate for holidays!
and than of course theres two window sills...
what would be in these spaces if I didnt fill them with cute stuff?
I do have to admit, it is overwhelming when I first get started.. but also exciting to pull out and unwrap each old friend!
and I hate to admit it...... but.....(shhhhh, dont tell my husband)  theres always room for more!
the little witch in that pumpkin above is MOI!   
I know.. its a sickness...  probably a little ocd...  maybe I need meds!
cards people have sent me in the past...  freaken love them!
you know.. my kitchen is tiny... but theres a lot of stuff out there!
I havent unpacked everything yet.. but the kitchen is done.  and so is the living room. 
I havent touched the porch yet, but I'm going to buy a skeleton this morning.. my porch is actually a mess... we have sprung a leaky roof out there!  ticks me off!  o
And I havent done the bathroom yet.. my hubby is doing some remodeling in there. 
so, today I'm off to target this morning, then home to make a giant apple crisp.  We have a wedding that we are all going to at 2:00 with the reception at 6:00.  so in between we are coming back here to have a birthday party for Jennifer!  busy day ahead.  
and... Im still sick!   but I will rest tomorrow... I promise!
happy Saturday!!

I love all your decorations, Vivian! Those cards are great ~ I thought they were books. You certainly have a busy day ahead. We'll be babysitting our granddaughter today {she's 2}. I'm sure I will be exhausted tomorrow!

I seriously don't think one can have "too much" Halloween. I've been soaking up this post taking in all the special details. I think it's time to start unpacking our Halloween tubs (in between loads of laundry). Get better. Sounds like a very busy day awaits.

Halloween hugs!
