Check out our Halloween flag that also includes WVU flair. Thank you, Courtney, for this gift!
Then we have who I like to call Lil Mike and Lil Erinn. Aren't they adorable? These came from the aforementioned Christmas Tree Shops.
And here is a better view of the rest of the porch. The leaf garland came from WalMart. The wreaths -- my favorite part! -- came from the Christmas Tree Shops. The pumpkin basket on the table built by BGAl is from last year's Charleston Junior League's Halloween Boo Ball (best costume prize for Mike and me as Freddie Mac and Fannie May. It had wine and other goodies in it). The porch now boasts an assortment of pumpkins and is in need of some more colorful mums, but this pic gives you the general idea.

Isn't it perfect? Mike and I both get so happy when every time we see it. I want to do some research to try to find out how old it is and where it came from. The scrollwork is definitely hand carved (it seems to be anyway, it isn't exactly symetrical). The feet had rollers on them, but we removed them so the big chunks could be flush to the floor. Not sure if the rollers were original, but they had to go. I'm still looking forward to decking it out with some pieces from our Lenox Christmas china.
