Halloween....

it's sneaking up on me way too fast!

I've been so absorbed with the craft fair that I haven't had much of a chance to do any Halloween decorating, other than the Bellaween candles I did two weeks ago. But at 9:30 last night all that changed, well, a little bit anyway.

I pulled the Halloween box in from the garage and started rooting through it. Moved some stuff from room to room. Dug through a button box and some trims... hemmed and hawed some more. And this is what I managed to accomplish.

A few close-ups...

Snuck some of my favorite possessions into the mix... the clock face and family dictionary.


This is my favorite picture.... with Teresa's creepy little girls.




Got another favorite in there.... my lemon extract bottle.


That's one area of the house all Halloweened out. Hopefully I'll get to another one before Halloween actually arrives. And of course, I still have at least 6 more candles I want to decorate. In all due time I suppose.

Have a beautiful Monday!

Oh Alisa!
What a great job you did! I'm in love with your banner, candle with creepy girls, clock face, lemon bottle, etc.
I think you get the picture. It looks like a stunning set design for a movie set, way to go.

It is a stunning arrangement. Love what you put in it. I probably wouldn't have thought of all those things. But it looks great. I only have the outdoors and my mantel done myself. Probably that's all there's going to be. We never get trick or treaters in our neighborhood.

What cool stuff, Alisa! My favorite is the crow!

We have a crow family that shows up here every spring and raises a few more to add to their flock. They hang out in our willow trees and "talk" to each other. It's totally amazing the different sounds of chatter that they make. What clowns they are!

Everything looks fantastic Alisa! I love the halloween banner and the creepy girl candle- I made one too and love mine when it's lit up! I haven't made much else from the e-zine but I hope to squeeze in another project or two before the 31st! xox natalea

Wow!!! Love Love the mantle decor! You are such a talented girl. Have you ever worked for a magazine? I think Martha Stewart would eat you up!

I have to get my hands on some of those clock faces and those scary girls are wonderful!

Everything looks so great! We don't have "Halloween" in the Netherlands, but hopefully that will change soon! I like all the decoration! You made a lovely vignette!
