Prepping for Halloween

Well, one day last week it was actually 18C and I thought it was the perfect time to decorate the house for Halloween.  Not too crazy.

Do you see my fake 'crow' on the post.  Well, I bought this little gem at Walmart 3 years ago and have displayed it with no issues.  Apparently this year this bird is causing some little critters around my house to be upset with it as this bird has been attacked the last couple of days and has lost one of it's wings and some feathers.  I guess it looked too real!!

I'm also posting a few LOs.  The first is one I've been struggling with and keep adding to it.  I'm thinking (hoping) that it's finally complete.

Hope you are enjoying these beautiful warm fall days we've been having.  Cheers!  =) Lisa

Outdoor Winter Container Class

About a month ago, my hubby & I went looking for a large container that we could put an evergreen tree in to help cover an ugly corner in our backyard and we ended up at a greenhouse in Black Diamond called Vale's Greenhouse.

We didn't end up buying a container from them but I did sign up for an Outdoor Winter Container Class for $5.  And I was told that if I became friends with them on FB that I could print a certificate out & get the course for free.  Of course, plants & dirt would need to be purchased.

The containers we did end up buying that I wanted to fill for winter were too large for me to transport back & forth, so I just bought the plants after I figured which ones I liked together and finished them at home.

Here's some pics:

Not bad for not actually having the containers to work with.  With luck, these plants will last till Feb/Mar.  Here's hoping!  =) Lisa
