The Halloween cutouts were collected long ago by a previous kindergarten teacher and left when Tom too over the room, also a long time ago now. When he retired he claimed them for his own. By now they are antiques as well.

There are no pumpkins on the porch yet. I don't know that I'll put any out this year since we won't be home for Halloween and we don't have trick-or-treaters here anyway, since the house is too far off the street, and it's easier to go to the mall. But we do have this little scare crow girl to greet arrivals to the front door. And inside we have some fun stuff that we like to display just for our own enjoyment. The glass jack-o-lanterns are antique candy jars that belonged to Tom's mother and her sister, circa 1915. (click to enlarge) A gourd, an apple gourd, and fabric pumpkins.
