Bootifying Greenacre

Halloween is HUGE  at Greenacre. A close second to Christmas but one of the girls most favourite holiday. I think the candy has alot to do with it but I make sure to bootify Greenacre every year for them.
 Alot if the decorations are from the dollar store.
 I just group and stage them to look super spooky.
 Mesh ribbon has become my new favourite thing to decorate with for obvious reasons.
 Ghosts hanging around the backyard.
 Skeletons and pumpkins greeting them when they come home from school.
My Fall ball is made by tying 2 hanging baskets together and weaving a piece of mesh around it. 
 Glued a couple of leaves and voila! and Fall ball is born.
 Can you tell I have a thing for owls?
 In the Spring we had to rip out the grapes because of all the bees that the grapes attracted. I used the grapes vines to make this garland. It looks so good that I might just rip out the other grape vines to make another garland.
The tall light brown branches are dried up daylily stems. I leave them on after they have bloom until they turn brown and then gather them to use as a Fall decoration.
I used to use corn stalks but between the animals eating the corn, the wind blowing them out of place and the moisture turning the leaves brown....the dried up daylily stems made a better alternative.

Here are some free Halloween printables to Bootify your home.


















Have a Bootiful Halloween!

Welcome Autumnween!

"Just before the death of flowers,

And before they are buried in snow,

There comes a festival season

When nature is all aglow."

Happy Fall y'all!
Autumn is one of my favourite time of the year hands down.
Maybe it's because I am greeted by this spectacular display
of Fall foliage.
Watching Fall in action as the green leaves of Summer are turned into hues of gold, red and orange.
SIMPLY GORGEOUS! 
As well as making a perfect backdrop for Greenacre's Halloween decorations.
Wanna a wee tour?
Coooooome on over then!
Planting nasturtiums, marigolds and chrysanthemums proved to be a great idea.
They are joined by the sedums, rudbeckias and blanket flowers,
 and are splashing garden beds with Fall colours.
Ironically there are remnants of Summer amongst them.
These day lily stems for example, were gathered before I cut the lilies back.
The oak branches were picked up on our last trip to the beach but Fall is a season of celebrating natures bounty.
Why not use these beauties as decorations?
Although Thanksgiving is celebrated before Halloween round here I can never resist the urge to put up the Halloween decorations alongside Thanksgiving.
Combining the two holidays is really easy to do.
Use alot of pumpkins, leaves, scarecrows, ghosts and skeletons.
Skully & Jack,  make the perfect Thanksgiving & Halloween combo.
Spiders and owls also help celebrate Autumnween perfectly!
2 weeks is just not enough time to enjoy my decorations.

 I have created some free memes and printables to help celebrate this wonderful season.












 Happy Happy Happy Autumnween y'all!!
