I can’t believe Halloween is here! Where did October go?!?! I want to show the Halloween decor around the house I have not shared on the blog yet. I added this wooden ticket sign I got at Homegoods a few years ago to the mantel and edited out some of the woodland elements I had for theContinue reading “halloween 2016”

halloween inspiration

I wanted to share some Halloween projects I just finished which were inspired by some fellow bloggers. I created a whimsical Halloween vignette to counter balance the very adult nevermore vignette I shared the other day. I wanted to make a halloween glitter house last year but never got around to it and Worthington Court inspiredContinue reading “halloween inspiration”

halloween tablescape

The spooky season is upon us so I set the table accordingly. I used lots of birds, skulls and pumpkins. The color scheme is pretty monochromatic, which I tend to lean towards automatically. I draped some of my regular chargers with creepy cloth I picked up at the dollar store.  One cloth can cover 8 chargers,Continue reading “halloween tablescape”

halloween review

I have not gotten to the halloween bins in the attic yet {seems to be my trend this year, which does NOT coincide with my one little word for the year- “timely” by the way but that’s a topic for another day}.

halloween potions, poisons, powders and more – diy

DIY ghastly apothecary jars & alchemist bottles. I made these grungy Halloween containers for any potion or elixer a witch or wizard might need to cast a curse or spell. I made them from everyday household glass bottles, including sparkling water, jam, vinegar, even a candle, you get the idea.  There’s only one bottle IContinue reading “halloween potions, poisons, powders and more – diy”

the witch is in ~ halloween mantle

Without thinking about it, planning it or realizing it I created a witch theme on the mantle. It’s one of those things that just happened and I went with it. The witch & hat I bought a few years ago at a great little boutique “the queen bee” not too far from me, which hasContinue reading “the witch is in ~ halloween mantle”
