SUNSET AT OUR HOME

We have a great view from our bedroom window to the south and the west.  During the month of September, the sunsets are incredible.

LIGHTING FOR HALLOWEEN

We have a friend who has the most amazing collection of holiday decor.  His Halloween collection is beyond compare.  So what does Peter say is the most important aspect of holiday decorating?  In his words,  “It’s all about the lighting!”

American Harvest is happy to showcase incredible lighting for Halloween.  If you think that you have great displays without proper “mood” lighting, you are missing the boat.  Here are some terrific ideas for Halloween lighting now available at American Harvest.
