"Halloween Happens at the Wienne Ranch"

This is the house we live in not the one we inherited and my daughter lives in:O)
this is for Robin:O)

This is a picture heavy post LOL So, go get a cup of your favorite yummy beverage and sit down and take a break. These are the decorations in my den/living room/family room whatever you want to call it. Our house is a 1930s cottage style home, so it is very small but I love it and it would take the purchase of a dream home which is a historic old home in the historic district of Hickory, North Carolina to get me to move. We inherited my brother-in-law's home when he passed away suddenly in 2004. It is about a 5 minute drive from our home and our daughter lives in it with her boyfriend, furbabies, Hush Puppie, Kenzie Mae, Sassie Mae, Prissie Mae, and Loki-Mae. The front porch pictures are some of my favorite decorating spots! My hubby built the cover porch last year. It runs the entire length of the front of the house. The old trunk in front of the windows was an estate sale purchase back in the 90s. I love old wood boxes and crates and love them for storage. I use them in my den area to store DVDs and VHS in. In the kitchen I have them stacked under my kitchen counter and use them to store cleaning products, cleaning rags, car care products, and all kinds of kitchen and house hold items in. They hide the clutter and look good too. I am still crafting for Halloween and I will take pictures of those items when I get them finished and put on display. I am wanting to decorate some owls and ravens that I picked up like those I have seen on other blogs. If you know how to decorate the owl and ravens will you please leave me a comment or email me at
I still have some Halloween theme Avon lip balms to giveaway if you would like one or several. I would love to send them to someone. Please just leave a comment and then email me your address.
Thanks to all my friends in blog land! I get so much inspiration and ideals from visiting your blogs!
Have a wonderful week!

Wow! That's a lot of decorating! Makes me embarrassed that I don't do more! And then I think about putting it away and I am not so sure. I love it all and I am glad you get in the spirit!.
Very festive!
Do you really want to give away lip balms? I have 4 grandduaghters under 10. If you are really so generous as to want to give them a good home, I know these girls will use them up!
PS-I have 4 other granddaughters but they are all pretty well grown up and 4 grandsons who would wonder why I got them lipstick!

Oh my goodness! If I thought the first few photos were wonderful, imagine how surprised I was to find that was just the OUTSIDE of your home! I have never seen so many wonderful decorations all together. I particularly love the double Halloween banner, it's so colorful! I can see I have a lot of crafting to do to catch up with you! Thank you so much for sharing! Elizabeth

Holy Halloween!!! And I thought I did Halloween up in style!! Holy Smokes! Now where, exactly, do you store all that??? (And, even though I reread your post, I'm confused...Is this the house you live in, or the one you inherited that your daughter lives in? Yeah, it's a Monday!) Enjoyed the tour....Wishing you a grand week ahead...Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Love all your wonderful halloween Treasures!!!

Question... everytime I come to your blog I can't find the followers link. Is it there and I am missing it or is blogger being stupid?

I finallyused the link in the top bar but I'm still wondering. :)
