{Echo} Week 2- Decorate

Halloween 1977 - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Dinky was the best dog ever! 

Mom, Me, Dinky circa 1977 (i think).

I have to admit - when Susan chose the prompt for this week (decorate), a weeeee bit of panic ensued. Yes, yes I know ... what a silly, silly thing to panic over Chrysti.

Since I am planning to move out of state and my current decor consists of not-so-glorious-horribly-obtrusive-will-someone-please-them-the-eff-outta-here stacks of boxes, mountains of styrofoam and bubble wrap, rubbermaid bins,  boxes full of things to sort through, and the ever so lovely tumbleweeds my cats & dogs contribute with their never-ending-i-love-them-dearly-but-not-their-hair-that-i-am-sooooo-tempted-to-shave-off shedding coats. Disheveled would have been apt prompt for my current situation. Politely stated, my house is an absolute wreck at the moment and the lovely little things that normally adorn my home, are all packed up and anxious for a new journey.

Fortunately, I had ventured out on a photo trip and managed to collect a few suitable shots.  I just didn't want to go overboard on the autumn theme and was at a complete loss for the second shot.

Autumn pumpkins spill out of the truck beautifully and on to the ground at Ganyard Hill Farm in Durham, North Carolina.

That is, until Susan sent me her oh-how-i-wish-i-could-taste-it shot. Instantly, I knew what to pair it with and once again I was in awe at how kismet plays such a prominent role in my life. I love how that works as I love serendipity. (remember my love list?)

Seeeee? Happenstance at its finest!

 Now, it is your turn. What does this weeks 'decorate' prompt evoke in you? I personally, cannot wait to see your echo. Just as I did before, I will post a roundup of all your entries next week - don't forget to link to them in the comments here so I can.

 If you aren't sure how to join in, you can check out all the details here. We'd love to have you play along - life is far more interesting viewing it through more than one set of eyes.

Another variation on the skeleton image taken in Port Costa, California

P.S. My photo was taken at Wendy Addison's Theatre of Dreams  in Port Costa, California last year - if you haven't visited, you must... you simply, must. More on that, another day. Carpe Diem!

P.P.S. Don't forget to venture over to Susan's blog to see our second diptych!

UPDATE: See the glorious entries of those participating in the {Echo} Week 2- Decorate Roundup !
