Halloween Ornaments

Autumn! and a New Cake Stand

Autumn! and a New Cake Stand

          It is officially Autumn!  We have been to the local apple orchard and to a “fall” art festival and now I have to start decorating for Halloween.  It is my favorite holiday to decorate for so I am going to take a few days and get this doing.  I am not sure whether there will be a Halloween Blog Party this year or not but I may have my own no matter what. I just finished painting a new cake...
