Decorations to Make People Smile

Most people would agree that decorating our homes or apartments is fun.

    (By the way, the pumpkin in the above photo is really a walnut shell that I painted orange and gave a face to!)

Using decorations to make people smile adds to enjoyment.

There's a big nick knack rack on our kitchen wall.

 Its contents are changed with the seasons or holidays-at-hand.

Right now, it holds mostly fall and Halloween decorations.

Many are meant to be humorous.

Almost everyone who sees them smiles and that, in itself, makes me happy.

I probably shouldn't admit it, but I'm not sure I have any humorous decorations!

In fact, I'm still only thinking about opening the basket in which I've stored autumn decor. I did a major purge of it after last season and honestly can't remember what I kept. It's time to find out!

I like the walnut pumpkin! I'm going to send my hubby out to see if he can find a few in the beds around our walnut tree and I just might make some!

Great idea for the painted walnut "pumpkins". Your knick knack shelf looks very "fallish" and is ready for a Happy Halloween. Anything that brings a smile or a chuckle is a good thing.

I do have some outside decorations that I've had for years that are humorous; one is a little green leprechaun who is playing an accordion. He belonged to my Irish mother in law and she so enjoyed placing him in her flower bed. Quite a few years ago My sister gifted me with 2 musical froggies; one is playing a banjo and the other a guitar and so I place the 3 "musicians" together and they make sweet music among the lillies and bring a smile to my face!

Cute Halloween decorations Susan...they will bring many smiles to people who frequent your home this season. I have a clown stuffed pumpkin, another that is a smiling witch, another that has a tooth missing and a smiling scarecrow. All my other things are "scary"..ha.

My decorations may not be humorous, but my tackling seasonal decorations ALWAYS is!
What a mess I make- plus something always falls and breaks, etc.

Enjoyed visiting so much, and I am a new follower.
