I’ve done a little Halloween decorating around the house. Often I find that it’s hard to make myself pull out the decorations and put them out, but I always feel better after I do it. The mantel is the best place for seasonal decorating. This year I put my glass candy corns in the crystal bowl, scattered some fall leaves, placed some of my Halloween cross-stitched pieces along the wall, and added my Harmony Kingdom Halloween pieces that I’ve collected over the years. I also used the patterns from allsorts to create the “Boo!” banner. I think it’s a fun touch.
I also added this little touch to the top of one of the speakers. Eric gave me this book on our second date, after we’d talked about how much I love it. I watch that movie every year on Halloween!
I put this little wooden witch on the entertainment center.
In the dining room, I took the opportunity to add a couple of things to the buffet table.
I just love these stuffed pumpkins. I bought these, but I think I could easily make some in some fun fabrics.
This metal jack-o-lantern would probably look cute with a candle inside (which I’ve never done!).
And in the guest bath, I set out these ceramic pumpkins with the cats chasing mice.
Just little touches, but I think they bring the seasonal changes into my home a little bit. Of course, something like this from the Pottery Barn catalog would be even better…
I’ve been making a few other little changes in the house, specifically in the kitchen and living room. I think it really helps to see the rooms in photographs to get a different perspective, as well as having input from others. Currently, I am making the changes I can make without spending any money. I think that’s a great place to start. It allows me the opportunity to rearrange and reuse things I already have. So, next post I’ll give you some glimpses into the changes I’ve been making. Thanks for visiting!
