On the tenth day of Halloween

On the tenth day of Halloween, the Great a Pumpkin gave to me: 

Another day of waiting on hvac people. With NO FUNCTIONING HVAC. As it turns out not only did our heater die on the weekend, our AC died Monday night. After five days with no climate control at all I am getting seriousLy cranky. I cannot sleep with the windows open! I am itchy, snarfly and last night we had crazy thunder that scared the crap out of me.

Not the kind of Halloween shock I had in mind.

One vintage horror story. I am on a vintage horror binge right now. Having read so much Stephen King it's kind of fun to read older things and let my mind compare.
One pretty bowl of gourds and pumpkins. The white gourds were volunteers that popped up in our own yard this year. Only one really made it to maturity (kids, squirrels and drought), but super fun! I hope to turn our neglected garden into a pumpkin patch next year.
And one Halloween mantel. This year I wanted to put a party hat on ALL THE THINGS. 

Back tomorrow. Cross fingers that soon an hvac company will start fixing my house? Oy.


  1. love the giant cat head! The scale is great wit the smaller things.

  2. Hope you find weather relief soon! Love the mantle!

  3. Love the mantel! Hope you're cool and/ or warm as apprpriate soon!


Hi there. What say you?
