dear readers,

i realize that it is only october 2nd, and that most of you are already getting tired of hallowe’en posts. well guess what? here comes another one!

first of all, we grew two pumpkins! with all of the rain that came over the summer, and because our garden is mostly in the shade, i did not expect anything except rhubarb to grow. how wrong i was! mother nature sure surprised us this season. (actually, i think that pumpkins flourish in the shade. am i wrong?) regardless, it was a happy surprise. :-)

with hallowe’en comes our trusty fall wreath and two little wire pumpkins. like little green, they are small and somewhat bare, but i consider my style to be a whimsical minimalist. thus, i am very happy with these items.

truman started playing with the broom and rather than deleting these photos, i thought that they were somewhat reminiscent of a witch and her broom. that is why i have included them here for you. :-)

i could not forget about what we have laying around the house! i love this holiday so much that i regularly collect hallowe’en items and keep them on display all year round. call me crazy.

really, how could you not like seeing little green all decked out in festive wear? it’s like an outfit post, but for a house. maybe i should do more of these. ;-)))

p.s. if you have already made a hallowe’en post on your blog, please leave a link to it in the “hello comments” field below. i would love to see your creations!

  1. Wonderful Halloween outfit for little green! It’s fit’s the occation perfectly (only St.Patricks day would have been a better match =) … Truman is also so cute! I’m so jealous..I badly want to have a pet but think it would be cruel to leave him alone in this little flat the the whole days… Long-term plan! Hugs Bella

    • yes, canada in the fall really is very pretty. while little green still needs much cosmetic work, the area that we live in is the oldest in the city. old = character = beauty.

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • Thank you to all those who liked, commented, and sent me messages yesterday. I am overwhelmed by your love. I would like to share one more thing. Since 2013, I have used my blog as a creative outlet and my Instagram account as my diary. I feel it’s a much better platform to reach out to others, and to be more truthful (if we dare). I try to only follow those who don’t always show the ups and highs of their “perfect” lives. While I think that the more popular, beige square, ad-infused, California chic, glam mother accounts are beautiful, I also find them to be depressing and unoriginal. A miscarriage is real. It is nothing to be ashamed of. If you don’t choose to discuss yours, that’s totally fine! I needed to share mine in order to begin my grieving and healing process. I am now a mother to two children. This is something that I did not want to, nor will I ever hide. Yes, our second child came much too early and did not survive, but that does not make his/her life any less worthy. Our baby was alive at one time. Our baby has a soul. Now, our baby has a name and will forever be part of our family. We are a family of four- three on earth and one angel in heaven. So, thanks again all. Sadness. What a difference a year can make. Last holiday season, Remy turned 10 months old. She had just gotten her first two teeth, and on Christmas morning, had learned to crawl. This year, we are mourning the loss of our second child. I suffered a miscarriage this week, and it has left a deep void in our family. This was going to be our Christmas card where we revealed to friends and family our joyous secret. Now, it remains one of our only photos as a family of four. Because of this, I want to share it with the world. Give your children an extra hug and kiss for me tonight. You are so blessed to have them. All my love, Emory.
