I know I have a lot of Halloween decorations. I started my collection over 12 years ago and it has continued to grow a little bit more every year. Most people have NO idea that I have these Halloween decorations in my home (from the outside, there isn't much of a hint that I love Halloween). Slowly, I have begun to share my Halloween home and decorations and everyone seems to be delighted.
So here we go...
Vintage-style is very appealing to me. I brings back the joys of my childhood when you could Trick-or-Treat with a friend...as long as you stayed together and you didn't cross the street. It was a time when it was safe to be a child...
It was okay to be a witch when I was growing up. Was it okay for you, too?
Here's my Witch Coffee Table. The little witch figure is an original from
Debra Schoch of Hop Hop Jingle Boo
(she makes Easter, Halloween and Christmas in papier mache').
I love to put out pictures of my daughter in her Halloween costumes.
Here's her version of a little witch (in our neighbor's yard).
I like details. Here are some balls I picked up at
Michael's last year. I found the giant candy
corn at another store. I thought about
making it myself, but it was priced low
enough that it was cheaper to buy than to make it.
Here's a fun photo scrapbook I made a several years ago.
It has pictures of Halloween adventures inside.
Here's a complete picture of my coffee table.
This desk is in my family room, too.
Here's what it looks like most of the time.
I like to add a few Halloween touches here, also.
Here are a few close ups of the decorations I have on the desk.
I try to work things in so they are easy to see without
changing too many of my regular decorations.
My husband is so sweet. He gives me a gift certificate at
Christmas to a local store that has a lot of my favorite
kind of Halloween goodies. I wait until the Halloween
decorations arrive and then use my certificate. Thank you, Sweetie!
This is Miss Moon.
Our Halloween kitchen table.
Here's the Butler's Pantry between our kitchen and our formal dining room.
This is how it looks a lot of the time.
I have to "Spook" this, too.
The pumpkin on the cat's head lights up.
The little figure is "Simon the Sorcerer" --he's displayed on Harry Potter books
(The Sorcerer's Stone, of course).
I made the other pumpkin--it is a treat box.
How about some "Creepy Coffee" in a Mummy or a Frankenstein mug?
Here are a few more collectibles I have in my kitchen.
I just love this vintage-style bucket with the cat.
Sometimes I put candy in it, but I most often I use it for one of my plants.
I hope you have enjoyed visiting my Halloween Home.
