This was an interesting week but I felt all screwed up with Halloween being on a Monday. All the local festivities took place over the weekend so by Monday it felt like it was all over with already.
Last Sunday I put together a post for Halloween showing pictures I captured in the downtown area where the older homes are.
This is the link to the post "here"
Tuesday and Wednesday I posted about feeling sentimental about my Mom and the childhood home I grew up in. You can visit Part one "here" and Part Two "here".
Next I showed my dining table arrangement for Thanksgiving.

I don't decorate early for Christmas but I'm not against picking things up early and exploring what new decorating items are out there. I thought I'd share this with you since it's a trend that carried over from last year.
Last year I talked about using "tree collars" for your Christmas tree instead of a tree skirt.
This was the post "here" where I showed the two that I bought and some other ones at other retailers.
This year I saw some new ones from Balsam Hill that are neat.
This one is similar to the one I got last year but has a better taper than mine. Mine doesn't have a hinge like this one so we had to put the base in first and lift the tree down into it.
This galvanized one will appeal to a lot of people that want a different look or perhaps for a Farmhouse style. Again I like that this has the hinge.
This one is in a classic willow basket shape.
It accommodates a tree with up to a 2" pole in the center to put the tree into.
We bought a tree from them last year so I get emails and catalogs from them. I am not compensated - just sharing. These are pricier than what I bought but they do have a sale going on.
Wishing you a great weekend ahead!
