Halloween Decorating

Every neighborhood always has that one house that is decked out for Halloween where they have transformed their yard into a graveyard and their garage into a haunted house. I have to say that I absolutely LOVE those houses. And all the kids flock there and it turns into a neighborhood gathering. Well, that just isn't my house....maybe one of these days. I've always wondered where those people store that stuff the other 364 days of the year. I'm more of a vignette kinda gal with simple Halloween touches scattered around. Meet Helga Henson! Isn't she fab?! She is the witchiest of all witches. My mom just had her cut out of metal for me and surprised me last weekend with her. She is almost life size and even holds a real lantern!

Even the butlers pantry gets a little spooky!

Happy Haunting!

I ♥ Halloween

Hi y'all! This is my favorite time of year and I L♥VE to decorate for Halloween. But with the recent move, I'm not doing a ton this year. My crafting buddies are in WV and Chicago and oh how I miss Janae stopping by my house with a big ole Starbuck's and helping me put up my Halloween decorations. We had so much fun together. I miss you, Janae but can't wait for you to come and visit and we can play decorating! :) One of my biggest dilemmas is that I can't find all of my Halloween decor because of the move, so I'm keeping it simple this year. I did manage to find my awesome vintage paper mache cat. She is so cute on the vintage plant stand that I found with my girl, Janae at the antique fair in Illinois and I can't wait to fill her with tons of candy. Well, not a ton considering my son is a type 1 diabetic but the cat will definitely be filled with some fun things. You get the idea.

Not sure if you all remember the huge white pumpkin I had out last year with the orange damask print.....well, can't seem to find it in all the boxes in the attic. So this year, since my walls are painted gray and everything is muted in the house, I decided to go with a black pumpkin and put this adorable white witch on it. I think I'm kinda lovin' it!

So I'm off now to the attic in search of more Halloween decor. Hope I find some more treasures!
