Hi my dear friends! Hope your week started off great!
Summer is almost over and with Fall just around the corner I cannot help but starting thinking about the spookiest time of the year...Halloween!
My husband and I really enjoy decorating our house with all sort of Halloween inspired items and I always like to add a handmade crocheted piece every year!
