Halloween Around My House

Too many pictures for words.  I think I’ve noted where I purchased things, in the event anyone is interested.

 Spell books from Amazon.

 Bag of little plastic skulls from Dollar Tree.

The spell books are printed as if the pages are aged and notes have been made in them.  What looks like handwriting {below} comes in the book that way.

Decorating in the kitchen, because it can get pretty scary in here even when it’s not Halloween!  Eat my food at your own risk!

A dollar store tray with a dollar store wood oval painted with chalkboard paint.  I used these at my daughter’s Mad Hatter Tea Party Baby Shower, too.

I can’t remember if I got the candy corn towel set from Target or the dollar store.

My new outdoor lights are going up as I type this. I got the Halloween stake at Michael’s last year {on clearance} a week before Halloween for 40% off.  The monogram flag I just got from Hobby Lobby online with a 40% off coupon.

I like the flag tucked in this Lantana that I tried for the first time this year.  I know it is used in Florida, but it just took off for me here with the heat and humidity we had this year.  If I knew it was going to get this huge I would have bought more, first off, and second, I wouldn’t have put it right by the door.   I will definitely buy this plant again.

I know.  That picture and what I said above has nothing whatsoever to do with Halloween decor.  I just wanted to show it off.
IMG_8324_4809
The witches hat below I just stuck on the lamp.  I found that in Target’s dollar section.
IMG_8382_4794
I also found this plastic skull at Target.  I’m thinking of cloche-ing him.  He’s probably the scariest thing I have in my house right now {except for hubby, when I tell him I’d like to work part-time now. Please}.

 A beautiful witches hat ordered from Sara at Sara’s Sweet Surprise.  The detail is just gorgeous and I love it!

That’s all for my Halloween decor!   

Linking up to Color Outside the Lines for Vignette Friday.

I love those spell books - how cool! I have to take some photos of our goodies. I bought one of dad's pumpkins yesterday from the craft fair!
