I Think I’m Finished Decorating!

For Halloween. At least I think so. I mean people keep coming up with such inspiring ideas and there are some great link parties like this one at A Fish Who likes Flowers

Or this one at Midwestern Sewing Girl:


So Mr. Chocolate, if you read this….NO PROMISES! But for now, I’ve got my halls decked…er haunted. Last year I started muting my color palette which I continued this year:






Mr. Chocolate knows me well and got me the the WIcked Witch ornament from The Wizard of Oz collection early enough for Halloween Smile 

Powder Room:


My Spider Web Glass block now lit up!


An eerily realistic looking skull (sun made for a bad pic) I picked up at Big Lots for $2, He’s wearing the hat that yes, thank you very much, I did wear all around Disneyland!


Where else do you keep glow in the dark skulls if not in an apothecary jar?

Coffee Table


“I’m dreaming of a White…..Halloween” Mr. C. strikes again surprising me after Christmas last year with these cute ceramic luminaries he found at a store that was closing.



Blown glass pumpkins we found out of season on a trip somewhere. A wooden pumpkin cut out that I painted and lettered years ago.



My husband’s dad gave us this antique piece which came from my late mother-in-law’s family. My mother in law loved Starbucks, and these are some of the Harvest / Halloween bears they’ve had over the years. Thought it was the perfect place for them !

Thanks for coming on my little tour! Off to check off some other things I might have to add!

Love it! My great-aunt has message decorations similar to the "Happy Haunting" that you have on your mantel. Only hers is regular scrapbooked card-shapes and the Halloween one just says "Happy Halloween" (I think. I haven't been to her house in a few Octobers. You know, because of school and all). It's a nice touch :)

Halloween is my favorite season to decorate. Its just fun and reminds me of childhood and simpler times. I love to get crazy with my front yard for the neighborhood kids.

I bet you'll come up with "just one more" thing to alter, lol. There's always room for more, lol. I'm loving your spider glass block. Have to add this to my list of things to do.
