~ Fall in the Entryway ~

Hi friends,

So… what do you think? Of what you ask? My pretty new blog template by Amybug! I know it’s similar to the old one but I wanted that. I really liked my old template a lot.Sad to let it go… but alas… after 2.5 years of blogging it was time for  new look.

My question… does it look ok to you. Everything alright? Pics showing properly? Everything good? If anything looks askew to you please let me know! I would appreciate it!

Last night we had Crafty Friday at Angie’s and worked on a ton of bottles and cans. Oh my. We have a bajillion. lol! But it was fun and we did a conference call with Linda from Parkers Paradise and and Robin the Cranky Crow and chatted for a while. Good times!

Ok… are you ready?

I’ve finally tweaked and moved and changed and cleaned (I left all the cob webs… they are spooky and prim right?!?)… so I’m ready to start sharing fall at Primcats House.

I should start on the porch but my farmer hasn’t gotten me my corn stalks yet so we will go there later.

Lets start in the entry way…

Looking in…


Or looking out… depending on how you see it. ;o)


At the front door…






Eh… not thrilled with this once I see it in pics… back to tweaking! I bet it just needs another pumpkin!!! :o)


Entering the living room.


A bountiful basket!


So as I’m decorating away and my bee skeep was still up on my arrow hanger.

Mr. Primcat says… “Don’t you have a fall hanger?”

I said “No. My skeep will do for fall.”

And the next day he came home with a bag from the Olde Farmstead and this awesome hanger was in it. What a good man!!! He even hung it for me!

I should share that Mr.Primcat loves our home’s décor. He doesn’t get into the decorating per say but he really likes the “pieces”. Whenever someone new comes over he shows it off. He’s very proud of our home. That makes me feel good.

Mr. Primcats contribution to the fall décor… another pumpkin!!!!






You see this little Prim cat? Look familiar? Well if you have been on Lecia’s blog then it should! She made one that went with a doll she made for herself and I just HAD to have one! I emailed her and bought this pretty little primcat to call my own. And tell me it isn’t the cutest little hotdog cat you’ve ever seen?


Thank you Lecia for this wonderful treasure! I love my hotdog kitteh so much!!!!


That’s it for the entryway… be back with more soon!

Until next time…

Carmen and the Primcats

I love your beautiful home and all the nice fall decorations. The kitty from Lecia looks right at home in the basket, so cute. Sounds like you and Jamie had a great time at Angie's with all the crafting going on. The call from Linda and Robin sounded like such a hoot. I bet it was nice to get to talk with them. Glad you all had fun.
Can't wait to see more of your decorating.

Oh what a welcoming entry. You have captured fall with your decorating. Love your little cabinets and the basket of "fall goodies". You have an eye for color. I will be doing a little decorating today, time to finish the house and be done. I keep tweaking all the time, can't leave well enough alone. Have a wonderful weekend- looks like you are ready to entertain. Blessings ~Sara

Can't wait to see more of your Fall decor.
