While summer remains my most favorite season, I have to say, there's something life changing about October. It is, in my mind, the clear end of summer and the countdown to a much loved holiday season and a new year filled with possibilities.
As a designer, Halloween has some great appeal-the idea of dressing your porch, yard or home in costume can be a funfilled family event.
Take a look at these goolish yards-all dressed and ready for the Halloween Ball.

Alrighty Bloomies...get on your mark...get set...
In one short month we are unleashing Bloomingdale's best neighborhood event!
Mark your calendars for Saturday May 19th-8am-2pm
The 9th Annual Bloomingdale Community Day and Yard Sale Event is sure to be a crowd pleaser. This event takes place in one of DC's greatest neighborhood achievements-Crispus Attucks Park. All proceeds raised at this event help pay for the park's $10,000 a year maintenance upkeep bill. The governing body, Crispus Attucks Development Corp. (CADC) and its network of volunteers and supporters are extremely proud of the park and what it gives to the neighborhood.
Check out the park's official website at www.crispusattuckspark.org for more information about the park and CADC.
We're serving up a mess of goodies this year:
Music-if you missed the trio last year you really missed it...we've got even more up our sleeves this year
CADC Snack Stand-burgers, half smokes and sweets...Oh My!
