Inklings Designs Decorates for Fall Show and Tell

Welcome to my Home
Poppy loves to be up high

Front Entrance

What...a fake sunflower!!!

This scarecrow does not scare me!

Just smellin' the Mums

Hey buddy, whats up with that smirk on your face?

In the neighborhood

Down on the corner

Inside table

Down the street

Well Halloween is Friday and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I went out into my neighborhood this weekend and took a few pictures of how people decorated their stoops for the Fall Season. We don't have many porches just front entryways. I was very surprised to see that there were only a few people that had the fall spirit this year. My parrot and buddy "Poppy" helped me with my Fall Decorating this year! Here is what it looks like around my house this time of the year.

Great pictures Inka! Poppy is a natural model. He's beautiful! makes me miss my cockateel Bogie. I had to get rid of him when I got married co she kept attacking my husband. Should have known that bird knew something I didn't know. LOL
Anyway, my favorite pic is the one with Poppy with the scarecrow! That would make a great poster!

BTW, Poppy, too, is colorful and beautiful. I'll bet she is a lot of fun...thanks so much for sharing your great pics!!
