while I was hanging the wreath noticed this huge spider web outside my door... how appropriate!... and the Japanese maple is glowing beautifully by the entrance.
This wreath was an after holiday sale from Michaels many years ago, I think I only paid a couple of dollars for it.
I don't like the mantel too cluttered and only put a few brass items, ceramic owls, candelabras, a ceramic pumpkin and silk garland (nothing like fake orange garland from Michael's to make the room a little festive)
For the table centerpiece I found an old silverplate tray and added some gourd, fake leaves and a mannequin hand. I also found a couple of clear glass candlesticks and tied a black velvet ribbon around them.
I love my crocheted tablecloth (thrifted from Goodwill for $4.99) which also resembles spider web...
Gourds makes a strong and festive bookstand (my mobile office upstairs by the kitchen). There you have it, hope you like this little peek...I know I'm a little shy about showing much of my home but if you have a wall to wall carpet like I do then you will understand... someday I will have wood floors, someday...
Now onto the more important task; finding a costume for the little ones!
So, do you decorate for Holloween? If so, what style? Is it the general fall theme like pumpkins, gourds and leaves or more like spiderwebs, witches, skulls and bones?
