It's not a whole lot different from our everyday decorating but...I finally started our Halloween decorating!
I added a few things to the desk in the dining room.
My fabric skull print hangs above it. Tutorial here.
A 1923 copy of Grimm's Fairy Tales (Part Two, that is. Does anyone have a copy of Part One that they would like to sell? ;) )
I love collecting classic literature in cool vintage bindings. Usually it is kept safely on a high shelf in the bedroom/library but I decided to take a chance and display it on the bottom shelf of the desk. Hopefully my babies will survive! They aren't valuable, most were found in the clearance section at Half-Price Books for $2, but I love them and they would be difficult to replace.
More vintage books on top of the radio.
I found this little guy at Dollar Tree and painted him with watered-down black and brown paint so he wasn't so blindingly white.
The buffet in the kitchen is where the witch hangs her hat.
A few potion bottles with Love Manor labels. These are just the ones from last year, I plan to add more this week. You can't see in this picture but to the right of these sits a cauldron that bubbles and mists.
A couple of vintage Dickens books that could pass as spell books. Some Embalming Juice (aka red wine with a label that I found at dollar tree last year) with a silver goblet and a skull from Walgreens finish things off.
A countertop cemetary made up of a spooky tree from Hobby Lobby a few years back and tombstones, floral moss and a hanging skeleton, all from Dollar Tree.
My spooky photo frame moved to the fireplace in the living room along with my Target candelabra.
A motion-censor raven keeps watch over the candy on the coffee table (found at Hobby Lobby several years ago).
Dollar Tree mini skulls and spanish moss from Dollar Tree fill a Goodwill vase with a little raffia tied around the top. Similar to the ones by Pottery Barn and The Gathering Place Design.
That's all I have out for now. It has given me an idea of how much space I have to work with for new projects. Time to start crafting!
