Deb
Or at least it is starting to look like it from in here. Actually, we are getting some storms, and the temperatures have dropped so maybe I am channeling fall after all. So I broke out my Halloween decor and started going to town in my house. I still have lots to put out. I didn't realize I had so much, but while going through all of it, I realized that my tastes have changed. I am wanting a more elegant classic Halloween look, rather than the light up plastic jack-o-lantern look of before. So I may have to add some of this stuff to my garage sale pile. I took some pics of what I have put out so far. What do you think?




Okay, I got a fabulous deal... well okay, not fabulous, but a whole heck of a lot better deal than it was priced at... on this cloche. Michaels had them on clearance for $19. I had a 40% off coupon and I asked if I could use it on this. The guy said sure, so I got it for a little over $11. Cha-ching!!! The pedestal was 50% off at HobLob. I love how it looks.




Okay, see this spider web and spider? Yeah...$4 at Big Lots. Run people, don't walk. How cute is this?







And here is a look at our family room with some of the decor up. I plan to change the candles on the mantle to urns with pumpkins. I'm going thrifting with my sis on Wednesday, so I will be in search of the perfect urns then.



So that is it for now. I still have more to put out, but that will have to wait for tomorrow. I am way tired, and since there are storms on the way, I have a feeling we will be visited by some little people at some point tonight. Ahhh, the joys of sleeping on 6 inches of bed, and getting kneed in the back. Don't you love it?

Have a great night.

  14. I'm like you, I like my Fall/Halloween decor to be a little more elegant. However, for some reason, I love spiders for Halloween. I guess there is nothing creepier...that can be real anyway.

    Every time I come to your blog and see the twilight widget my heart skips a beat. I'm so darn excited for that movie! :-)


  15. I love your decor! The trick or treat sign is fabulous!

  23. Meg Says:

    I'm so going to copy your "Happy Halloween" string on the mantel! I found your blog through a friends and It's great!!!


  24. I looked than I went back and looked AGAIN..it is all sooo gorgeous. Now remember if you have any old Fall stuff that you are tired of see if you can spray paint it first and make it more sophisticated. I did that with a few cutesy pumpkins and it worked. I know you said you got the Marie blocks at Michaels but I couldn't find them...in the diff. sizes. Do you have the cricut expressions? I have the older model. Lots of questions sorry. rofl, cherry


  25. Joy Says:

    What fun Halloween decor! Your spooky blocks look awesome...aawww, it all looks awesome!


  26. Great decor! Man, I think everyone but me has a cloche! That will be put on my want list...don't want to be left out! LOL


  27. Bella Casa Says:
