I like their colors and their vintage-style faces.
I've been collecting them for over 12 years.
This year, I have been so inspired by the blogs I've visited that I decided
to try something new. I'd seen a lot of mercury glass on tables and knew
I had a bunch of mercury glass, so I decided to get some
of it out to go on my "new table."
I pulled out a few other odds and ends
and then added a couple of new items I found at T. J. Maxx.
I got the mercury glass pumpkins there and they were sooo
much cheaper than the ones that Pottery Barn had.
I also got the witch hat at T. J. Maxx.
Yes, I already had this hand amongst my Halloween decorations.
I already had this jar with gummy eyeballs that I used in another room-
but I think it looks "nice" on the table, don't you?
While I was looking for something the other day,
I found a box of old flatware that I had put up.
It was perfectly tarnished for Halloween.
Here's the new witch hat.
I tore this old sheet music out of the book for something and then
laid it down on the corner of the table while I collected the
magnifying glass and the skull decoration that
I made several years ago. I set them all down
and then when I came back later,
I decided I liked them just as they were.
I added the scrapbook paper and the black ribbon to the plain white candle.
I will have a couple of parties to celebrate Halloween this year.
Last year, I had a coffee and invited friends to "Join Me for a Spell."
What to do think of my new Halloween table?
Now I just have to add a P.S. ...
I just realized that I had not taken pictures of my three black cats that are also in my dining room. I got them several years ago and I had them out before I decided to switch my table decor. They are a little more fun and whimsical. I say this because of how they are displayed....they are right there in the midst of my silver coffee/tea service and right under my great, great aunt's hand-painted Haviland china. I knew I wasn't "right" a long time ago....oh, well.
