As you know, Halloween is among my favorite occasions, and holidays...a very close tie with Thanksgiving... and when my schedule allows, I always love to decorate the Casa du Borghese in preparation for Hallows Eve and all the children...all 8 that go trick or treating on All Hallows' Eve to my place. I get more adults as they know I give at little bottles of liquor, mistaken them for juice boxes. How I make this mistake ever year is beyond me. I also attend the yearly Halloween party in New Hope, and dress up in fun, interesting and crazy costumes. Call me crazy, but decorating for the holidays is fun and always gives the joint a fresh feel, and changes it up, and it's nice to have a seasonal reference as not to bore of the place. Fall has a great feeling. It's pretty, crisp, cool and has a touch of creepiness to it. Our town here gives out scarecrow kits for the kids to assemble and then they placed them all over town, and tied to lamp posts, like the two above. Meanwhile at the Casa the autumn jewels are out.

Why yes, the neck pillow does have a parakeet on it.
A dish I use as my catch all for beads and watches. I'm a huge wrist stacker. I like wearing a watch then earing multiple beaded bracelets with them.
