Reader Photos

Depending on where you live, you may or may not have power today. We basically prepped all weekend for this storm hitting the NorthEast today. So, in an effort to keep our minds on something light, I wanted to share fun reader photos with you!

These first 2 photos come to us from Jeanne in Seattle. In addition to having great fall decor, Jeanne is an incredibly talented artist and is the voice behind the blog, I Dream Of!!
If you are ever in need of incredibly creative party invitations, party favors, custom stationery, teacher gifts, etc...Alexis in California is your gal. She's always dreaming up something fun and fabulous, which she shares on her blog, JacolynMurphy (a combo of her son and daughter's names...Jack and Carolyn). This year, Alexis is taking the non carving route. You must check out her blog to see her Jackson Pollock pumpkins!!! So creative!
 Linda in Seattle sent this cool vignette. Whooooo doesn't love a wise old owl?!
Real life friend, artist extraordinaire, and blogger of pvedesign, Patricia, sent me this photo of a white pumpkin and porcelain berries she found. She's loving Autumn and morning walks with her sweet dog, Bentley.

 My friend in real life, Natalie, lives in Dallas and tells me that inflatables are the big Halloween decor of choice. And, like most things in Texas....bigger is always better! This one is at Natalie's home...and her sweet pup, Rosie, wears a boo kerchief for the season!
Thank you to all who shared their take on autumn decor! It's always fun to see how people do things around the country.

Wishing everyone along the East Coast a safe next couple of days. I'll be back online on Wednesday, if we have power!!

Hi Elizabeth - Thank you for the distraction from this impending storm. I was in Rye yesterday (at Shenorock) and thought of you. I worry about the Milton Point area because it is so exposed to the sound. We are in backcountry Greenwich so other than trees and loss of power, we should be fine. Stay safe and dry...xoxox

Hi Elizabeth! I'm sending thoughts your way and hope that you and your family and friends come through just fine.

Love seeing all the fun and creativity here. And thanks so much for letting my little parade of pumpkins lead the way.

Be safe and take good care! XOXO

Stay safe!

We do things pretty big here in Texas. That balloon blow up is common amongst Texans. We like things that take two seconds to put up and two to put down.

Thanks for sharing the masks on the pumpkins! What a great idea.

Love all of the pumpkins on the stairs-simple and elegant, if a pumpkin can be elegant.

Hi, Elizabeth ~ I hope you all are doing well. We made it through Sandy fine, and hope others did as well. Although NYC and New Jersey look really bad. Thanks for sharing these photos....I'll have to visit your friends. Take care, Loi

Hi Elizabeth - I am a fellow BYW student. I was drawn to your blog because I love your banner! Great combination of color and textures. I am hoping to redesign my banner, your design gave me some great new ideas for a fresh update to my site.

All my best - Aimee www.everydaysailing.com
