Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Boo!!! -- It's Trick or Treat at Linderhof!

This is "Jack" -- the Lantern that welcomed Trick or Treaters at Linderhof on Halloween.
Under the portico is my Witch's Lair -- my Pumpkin Palace . . . with a row of plastic jack o lanterns with electric votives lining the drive way up to the Witch's Lair to the large real jack o lantern by the "Witch". A plastic tub/cauldron of full size candy bars await the trick or treaters!
Ravenswood the Crow and a rusty candelabra add to the ambiance of the Witch's Lair.

Halloween is always a fun evening at Linderhof and we enjoy all of the little trick or treaters.

Now the pumpkins are put away . . . the witch's costume is ready to be put back in the attic.

Halloween 2009 is just a memory!

I'll bet your house was a popular one! I spent the evening at a witch's house too - helping my sister shell out was lots of fun.

Love the costume! I hope you had lots of treat or treaters to enjoy the fun.

Your home is beautiful. Halloween was spectacular also.

OH I LOVE this! What a great idea, to dress up in a witch's outfit to hand out the candy.

so cute! Lucky kids, to have that experience... such fun, and not scary for them. And full size candy bars? I'm coming to YOU next year!
