While visiting a dear friend in Ohio (whom I met through the internet), we shopped in a cross stitch stitch store. This kit didn't just call to me, it screamed BUY ME! especially since a coordinating frame with the pumpkins in the corner was available. I am a sucker for cute.
I have two bay windows in my family room. Most of the ghosts are from craft shows.

Here is Paddy O' Spook in my shamrock
Even Teddy gets into the spirit of the season
These Jim Shore pieces are on top of the entertainment center in the living room.
The passage way between the living room and kitchen always has a quilt hanging there. This is one of my favorites. I had just learned to use a stippling stitch on my sewing machine and went to town on this quilt. It also has seven small charms sewn on.
Opposite the quilt is a niche with glass shelves that usually hold my Brandywine buildings. Each one is chosen for a personal meaning to my family. Here is the theater (technically it should be a movie theater) for one of my sons, a jewelry store and a quilt shop. Feel free to guess who the jewelry store and quilt shop represent.

I bought this kit and stitched it in Las Vegas. Not everything that happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

My centerpiece, even if it isn't in the center of the table
More white ceramic pumpkins. These are on top of my tall hutch
I have Snowmen (SnoWonders) for all seasons. Here are the October and November ones.
There are more decorations throughout, but I will save them for another day. Once in a while I have to do something practical. Like fix dinner.
