Today seemed like a fitting date, being the 13th, to share my Halloween decorating with you. It's usually one of my favourite times of year to decoarte, but I just was not in the mood this year. I wasn't planning on decorating, but I had an internal struggle and I gave in. So I did a bit of decorating and I thought I'd share some pictures and a video tour with you today.
This is a styrofoam skull from Michaels and the eyeballs are also styrofoam balls (sold seperately). I just placed the eyes in the skull (no glue needed).
Then I wedged the skull up into this glass dome. It was so tight that it just stuck up in there and now it looks like it's floating. So perfectly unexpected and spooky!
Here's my favourite butler holding some wine, a treat basket and a yummy candle from Bath and Body Works: Halloween Trick or Treat: "Wickedly good! A scary good blend of freshly good marshmallow, smoldering woods and vanilla bean."
This is BONEY SOARES. He joined our family two years ago.
The eyes are giant rhinestones from GLITZ's Raven Halloween Collection. I had to hot glue those in because they kept popping out at odd times.
My favourite white pumpkins are on display under this new little table which is under our electric fireplace. On the table I have my Halloween album opened to a couple of my favourite pages: Grace the Good Witch and Pumpkin Love (which I can't seem to find on my blog, so I may not have posted it).
Here's that Pumpkin Love layout above that I don't think I ever posted on the blog.
And, in case you are curious, this is our electric fireplace. Tony and I miss having a fireplace, almost as much as we miss having a big tub, our maybe it's a tie. In any case, we can't do a darn thing about the tub, but we can improvise a little on the missing fireplace! So I found this at Costco and it fit perfectly in this space. It really does the trick for now. Adds some nice ambience at night. It does even give off heat if we turned that part on, but these nights the air conditioning has been running, so the flame is just on and adds that cozy feel to the room.
