I'm afraid my kids truly believe this sign that's perched above my oven!
I absolutely love Halloween. Not sure exactly why well maybe "permission" to eat tons of candy is a big one!, or maybe because it's kind of the official confirmation that fall is in full force. Then, and way more importantly, Christmas planning should begin. I know it seems too early to think about C'mas around Halloween for some, but when you're a semi-working Mom, with tons of stuff going on, ya can't really start planning too early, right?!
The foyer. Spooky in mostly a black and white theme.
Dollar Tree crows that I'm sure have made their appearance on other blogs.
I'm so glad I grabbed up this "Wicked" piece. Wal-Mart - $2.95!!! Isn't it great?!
Thought I'd share some of the other Halloween vignettes I have created around the house. Some are "fallish", some are cutesy, some are little spooky - just a little.
The hutch. Black garland strung with 16 year old pumpkin lights (can't believe they still work!) and little treat cones tucked in waiting to be filled - not yet though - I'll end up sneaking pieces every time I walk by for sure! Boy, I'm no photographer - check out the television's reflection in the glass!
Found the spooky/glittery candelabra's at Linens and Things a few years back on clearance. They have purple, gem-bodied spiders that coordinate with the purple glitter of the tombstone. Pretty neat, huh? I love when stuff works out like that.

Banner hanging above kitchen window. Think I got the pattern from Martha's site last year.
Tons of glitter used on this project!
My cute little kitchen witch hanging on the pantry door. She's a left-over from my craft show days. Isn't she cute?!
On to the living room where I have some spooky-ness going on. The ever popular Martha glittered skulls and bones make an appearance there. Check out the fabric on the table. I just love it! Wish I'd bought 5 more yards when I found it a few years ago.
The family room has some of my favorite banners. The banners shown below were from a "girl's day of crafting" here last year. I think both banner's ideas came from a magazine - Paper Crafts maybe - can't remember now.
Still have some tweaking to do on that shelf. Not really liking the arrangement.
And lastly, for now, the powder room. I was so excited about the cute hand towel I found at Kohl's. Not sure about it being white, though!
That's it for now. Oh, that's just the tip of "iceberg"! I'll have a bunch more photos to share later when I get everything out. Yes . . . that's not all of it! I have the whole outside of my house to decorate yet! I'll leave you with a snippet of the mess that's currently in my craft room of some WIPS works in progress.
