Fall Decorations for Pink Saturday

Today for Pink Saturday I am going to show some of my fall and Halloween decorations and sneak in a little pink at the end!
I fell in love with this HUGE fall display made at my local Michaels Store and just had to take it home. Its hard to tell, but sitting on this table it is taller than me! The base pumpkin is 2 1/2 feet wide. It is just gorgeous!
Close up it is so beautiful!

Some of my Halloween display treasures!

A pretty rooster fall table display

Homemade Gourd Bird houses are fun to make and display in the garden for fall

I can't end my Pink Saturday post without posting some pink flowers in the garden!

Pink Saturday - Pink Baby Shower Gift Decorations

It seems like I have been invited lately to so many baby showers. I think gift presentation is so much fun. I was looking around Etsy one day and I came across the cutest store, I love Patty Cakes. Patty makes the cutest baby shower items and I just fell in love with her washcloth lollipops!

Look how adorable these baby washcloth lollipops are!
They are two wash cloths rolled up to look like a sucker then a plastic baby spoon or fork is added as the stick!
I couldn't resist a great deal , so I bought one in every color because she offers buy 4 get one free!

Then because I made a purchase during a certain time period, I was entered in a drawing. To my surprise I won and today I received the box and I couldn't believe how cute these are! It is a bakery box with onesie, bibs and washcloth cupcakes. Look how adorable they are!
A hand made strawberry tops every cupcake!

However, I have to confess, nothing can top waking up in the morning and finding this in your kitchen sink!

My Fall Yard and Fun with Grandkids!

The weather here in Southern California has been so beautiful. In the upper 90s during the days and cooler nights.

I thought I would show some happy flowers in my garden today.

This is my potting shed. I have given it some fall touch ups and a new face lift!
It use to be this dull brown color and I had it painted this summer

I have over 170 rose bushes in my garden. Every bush has blooms on it. I feed my roses in March, June and September. In January I trim every one to promote new growth for the next season. Here are a few rose pictures I took today.

Here comes Charlie the Stalker. If you are not paying attention he will sneak up on you and bite your toes!

Behind our vintage car garage we have the whole wall full of bougainvilleas

I have several pots in my patio with bright yellow Mums in them. I love Mums during the fall season

I have Mums all through the garden and they grown back every year. If you trim the bush round right before they start to develop their buds your bush will turn out like this!
This week I have had my son and daughter in law and two of my grand daughters visiting me from Utah. Even though I am recovering from a broken foot, I have enjoyed a night with them at Disneyland for their Disney Halloween Haunt.

They got to dress up. Here is Harper as Woody from Toy Story. This is her right before going into the Haunted House for the very first time. This is her brave face.

This is Piper. She dressed up like a Halloween Princess.

Grand children are so much fun!
