An Organized Clutter 2013 Fall/Halloween Decorating & Crafting Round Up with Friends!

October 12, 2013
I started my fall projects in August this year.  2013 will go down in blog history as the year of the "junk pumpkins", cake pan pumpkins, jello mold pumpkins, gear pumpkin, bicycle wheel pumpkin, a chef pumpkin, and a bun warmer pumpkin.  

Let's look back at 22 posts featuring fall or Halloween projects or decor:
