Halloween Decor

Kimba over at a Soft Place to Land is sponsoring a Halloween Party, so I thought I'd share a few of my Halloween decorations. Please keep in mind that I'm not a fan of white walls (in fact, they're pretty much making me cRaZy)...I know this paint color had to be picked out by a straight man (no offense, guys!) because there is not a dab of estrogen in it! We've only been in this house a year, so I'm still selecting paint colors.


The wreath is too high, but I need to find some more matching ribbon before I can change it.

I change this out seasonally...I DO silk plants because my thumb is very brown! One of the few "cats" allowed in my house due to GG's allergies. Family Room I love their goofy little faces. These came from JoAnne's several years ago.
These fireplace vases still need some branchy stuff.

My little Big Lots ghost (he was a bird feeder)... love that smile....who can resist a happy ghost?
I came upon this little trick-or-treater at the annual Charles Dickens Christmas show one year in Myrtle Beach, SC. This lady that lived there was dying of cancer, and had donated her entire collection of Anna Lees to be sold to raise money for local area churches, so I couldn't resist.
Sorry about the flash... Keeping Room Kitchen

Found this cutie at my 2nd home....HOME GOODS, last week....couldn't resist....

Bought this wine bottle for the painting on it. :O) .....I know, I'm half cRaZy!

Dining Room (my other wall sconce was in the shop for some minor adjustments)A little of this and that...Little witch for holding Halloween cards for Sweet Baby...

And I seem to have a thing for collecting pillows too....

Thanks for visiting my Halloween/fallish tour! Have a nice week!

Hi Tardevil...Your name cracks me up! Your home is stunning and you have decorated it so tastefully... It is so fun to decorate for the seasons when little ones are in the home... ;-) Bo

Hello Tardevil, Your touches of fall and Halloween everywhere in your lovely home are fun and festive. A peek at your decor is nice too. Loved the pillow with the birds. Your fireplace is great and my dh would love the set up with the tv on the wall.

I am posting my thrifty buys tomorrow. Also what to do with those bargains to make a small gift to give at Christmas. Thanks for the idea.

Hi Jeanne,
I seem to have problems coming over to your blog for some reason...can't figure out why. The pillow came from Z Gallerie, and I'm ashamed of how much I paid for it b/c I'm generally very thrifty, but I splurged b/c I really liked it. I, actually, dislike the way my fireplaces are, but that is how all the new homes were around here. Guess it's some kind of trend. My GG says all he needs is a couch & a tv, so I guess he's set. I like putting pictures or mirrors above my f/p, but I know I am blessed either way just to have a tv and heat. Please stop back by w/ your link so I can see your deals. I love a good deal!!!

Wow, everything looks fantastic. I love all of your autumn touches.

I'm sorry, but I just can't feel any love for your TarHeels. Your husband hasn't been supplementing my income, but tell him he has a family of comrades in my home. Our son graduated from NC State, and I have to pull for them, too. But, never against my Devils.

We can still be buddies though - I love, love, love me some Home Goods.

Hello Tardevil, aka "Sista" ;o
Love your home. I am very jealous - you have so many rooms to decorate, and how lovely they all look. You are right, orange looks great in your home over red. Orange really ads a lot of energy to a room.

Good luck trying to find your perfect burnt orange pillows.



P.S. I am going to add favorite links to my post and will add you to my link page. Could you have a longer blog name ;)

jeanne said...

Tardevil, I came over to figured out why my link didn't work yesterday. I am going to test it again. I hope this works. Hugs...Jeanne

jeanne said...

OK, I think my second message is good for my link.

Check it out...Jeanne

Bo said...
