Mums the Word!!

Hello everyone ! It's a frosty morning here in the Midwest. We had frost on the pumpkin this morning. Wow! Guess fall is slowly closing her doors. I have to say I'm not ready for what's following, I don't care for the snow, except from the inside out. So, let's look at something fun before we start thinking about snow.
For several years now I've put this little guy at our back door, he welcomes you with the sweetest smile. This year as in years past I add a few mums for him to watch over.

Around the pot I added some Spanish moss to cover the dirt and add a bit more texture.

Look at that face, don't you love his sweet smile?
He put on his best cardigan sweater for you.
Look at those eyes, he's so happy you stopped by. :-)) Now, we can only purchase one new piece of clothing at a time, so the patched overalls will have to do, after all they do have new patches on them. :-)) Now, we couldn't do a whole lot with the shoes, they've done plenty of walking in that ole pumpkin patch picking the right pumpkin just for you.


The beauty of a mum.....

What do we have here? Well, it's the Scooter look-a-like. She wanted to join in the festivities. lol

I think she looks a bit embarrassed. :-))
Yep, she's hiding out. :-))
Waiting for your arrival, Mr. Scarecrow has positioned himself under the mums.
Thanks for swinging by today and saying hello. Now, I'm off the front of the shop to put some finishing touches on all the Christmas decor. Yes, you read that right, the Christmas Open House is right around the corner so I'd best get busy! ;-)) Until next time...
hugs ~lynne~
