Happy Halloween! {Lolapatra Edition}

Lola hates costumes, but I'm mean and I force her to wear one every year for 3 minutes while I take some pics of her.  Usually she is fine, as long as it doesn't involve too much time in a head-piece.  This year's costume, she found particularly terrible.  She hated every single piece of it.

Introducing...

Lolapatra!
Yes, she is Cleopatra this year.  Queen of the Nile.  But I've taken to calling her Lolapatra
She is not a fan of a tiara.
What girl doesn't like a tiara?
She is even less of a fan of the Cleopatra wig!
"This is stupid.  I look stupid.  I'm done"

"Seriously, let me inside before someone sees me in this gold lame get-up."
Happy Halloween from Lolapatra and Me!

Lola's Fall Photoshoot

Fall always seems to be the time of the year when I drag Lola outside for pictures with pumpkins on the porch.  She wasn't very cooperative this year, but I got a few cute ones...

Hey there pumpkin head...




We moved to the backyard where I tried to get her to cooperate with a halloween banner I had purchased.  Nope, wasn't happening...
Leaf on the beard...


Just let me sit in the leaves...
Stay Tuned for the Costume Pics!

Halloween Decorations {2015 Edition}

I decorate for most holidays, and Halloween is no different.  
Time for the Kara's Halloween Decorations {2015 Edition}...

The Front Entry...



Just past the entry inside, there is an art niche, which has a couple of Halloween touches...



The mantle and other living room decor...






The breakfast room has lots of decor

These placemats are new.  I loved the old ones I had, but when I saw these, they just spoke to me.

The Halloween Tree

I added a few new ornaments this year.

These vintage looking ones....
Here you can see another of the vintage looking signs, and also the silver and also some of the new Shiny Brite mini's that were a new addition.
I also added a box of bigger Shiny Brite balls that have black velvety scenes
The haunted houses
The tree and haunted houses at night...

I found this adorable ceramic soap dispenser at Bath & Body Works and couldn't resist it.
Black sparkly haunted houses are in my kitchen window too.
My bedroom dresser got some pumpkins as well...
Several of the doors around the house have a festive touch too...


A few garden flags around the back yard...

Lola was enjoying the fall day...
