For those of you participating in Frosted Petunia's Le Mysterieux Carnivale.....
AREN'T YOU EXCITED??
I was gathering inspiration for the party through Pintrest, and here are some of the pictures I found.
This just makes me swoon. What could be better? A table full of pumpkins really hits the spot.
And perhaps a little pumpkin pie granola for your troubles?
And while you're at it....just plunge, okay?
OM NOM NOM!
Out for a carriage ride, on a lovely, yellow autumn day.
The perfect accessory on your walk through the park.
And how about going outside to this sight every day? HEAVEN!
Or a little backyard patio setting?
I love this. That's all.
One of the greatest parts of autumn is not only the bursts of color that pop up among nature--it's also the coziness that the season brings, the anticipation for the holiday season mounting as the leaves change.
Coffee, knitted things....Perfect, if you ask me.
This makes me think, "Everything will be okay." No matter what.
This makes me smile.
As does this.
Nothings is better than pumpkins and a chalk board :)
I just love all of these warm fall colors, don't you? The browns, the deep reds, the oranges, the whites and blacks and yellows. The earthiness.

I cannot get over it.
I can never get enough.
Pumpkins in the shrubs.
A darkening wood, welcoming Hallow's Eve.
The arts and crafts have come upon me!
I will be decorating like a mad woman with the only person who understands the magic of all of this madness this weekend, when we prepare for the carnival.
Inspiration, you ask?
A Fanciful Twist, to the rescue!
Here are some of the great Halloween crafts and goodies that Vanessa posted throughout the years.
What do you say to a printable PDF of one of Vanessa's free cards?

And how can you say no to a wickedly wonderful spider web?

I know I am borrowing my pictures this time around, but that is just because I wanted to share some of my inspiration. I will be taking plenty of pictures of my own soon enough, don't worry :)
It is so strange to think that just last year, at this same time, I joined the blogosphere myself and am now almost at my 100th post. How time flies, let me tell ya....
Anyway, goodbye for now, friends! I will return shortly with a carnival party post for Frosted Petunia's Le Mysterieux Carnivale!!!!!
