It's Party Time!!!

Edited to add: Mr. Linky is all fixed now! We can see everyone's links. Party on, people.

Come on in! I'm so glad that you're here!



Refreshments are in the kitchen. Party games will be outside...I've heard you all are a rowdy crowd. :-)



What do you think of my halloween take on my barn star? I made him especially for you guys.

So link up to your halloween or fall post and lets start visiting! Make sure you link to your actual post and not to your main page. It makes visiting throughout the week so much easier.

And make sure to leave lots of comment love!

Love that star! I'd love to get more stars but I'm just not willing to pay an arm and a leg for them (that's the going rate around here).

My decorations are mostly up. The photos don't do it justice at all. Why can't I get a decent photo???????

Kathy said...

Hi, Came to visit by the way of An Enchanted Cottage. Love what you did with the star. There are some awesome Halloween decorations out there.

jet1960 said...

Sorry for joining the party late. I'm cheating a little bit with my Halloween post as the dining table decorations are from last year but the Halloween art is some I did for a swap this year. I've not yet gotten my fall/Halloweeen decorations out of the closet. May get that done today as it is a nice rainy day and I'm off from work. Looking forward to visiting everyone's blogs.

Christian said...

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog when you stopped by, I can imagine you have a lot of commenting to do! Did you know your blog party generated over 300 hits on my blog yesterday? I usually have about 20!

Love all the fall stuff and the halloween barn star. I bought my first barn star recently. Still trying to figure out where to put it.
