I added a spooky tag to this cheese dome on the parlour mantel. Inside, a skull and spider rest on some spanish moss. The tag was blank in the middle, so I added a rub-on transfer and wrote some words on the tag in black ink (Beware!! Dangerous Specimen)
A full view of the parlour mantel. I still have some tweaking to do.
I also did something different with the harmonium this year; this is what I had in mind for all those Little Boo pumpkins I bought.
The big white pumpkin is actually fake; it's a white 'funkin' that I decorated using transfers that I bought last year from the Martha Stewart collection at Michael's. I have a small one also, which you can see in the full view photo above on one of the side candle pedestals.
I might add a few spooky spiders yet; but I haven't decided yet for sure.
Here's a picture at night with the candles lit. I use electric tealights in these votives because of our cats. Olive is quite the climber and she has been known to climb up here on top of the harmonium. Since I put up the lace sheers she doesn't do it much anymore because she can't see out the windows, but it's better to be safe than sorry!
The pillar candle with the skull on it is also a fake candle.
My beautiful hand made witch, Euphraxia, is no seated on her chair in the front hall. She was a birthday gift last year from my sister. She bought her at a craft fair we visited.
I just love her face!
The chandelier in the front hall has some spanish moss also; and new this year, a flying crow perched on it!
These are window clings. They work just as well on mirrors and the glass fronts of picture frames. It's a quick and effective way to add some Hallowe'en fun to your decor!
Here are some bat window clings on the hall mirror.
I have to get everything ready for our Hallowe'en party next week and for some reason I'm really behind this year. Usually I have all my Hallowe'en stuff up by the first week of October!
Thanks for visiting and stay tuned for more!
I'll be joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays!
