The Start of Decorating
So I have been doing some housework and decorating today. Thought I would show off some of the pics I have taken.
First I am at odds on what to do about a hallway that leads into my kitchen. This is where we hang up jackets and umbrellas. I started out with it decorated with gargoyles, a tombstone candle, broomstick, and some webbing.
But then I played with it and decided some magickal books and one gargoyle would be better.
Now I am not sure which looks better. People will see this area quite a bit since it is across from our half bath, otherwise I wouldn’t think twice about it. Anybody got some input.
Ok so now I wish to interrupt this blog post and tell you what wonderful thing my son just did. He saw a spider. He is eating dinner. He decides now is a good time to be brave and smoosh said spider with his dinner fork. Anybody want him? He is free!
So moving on…..I got this next decoration at Ross’s for about $8. I couldn’t help it, I fell in love with it. So we put it on our door.
Isn’t it cute??? And speaking of cute, I couldn’t beleive I found this next peice at the Dollar Tree. If you don’t have a Dollar Tree, everything is a dollar in the store. Anyway, I had gone to pick up some webbing and found this adorable hat.
The next item I want to show off is a peice my daughters made with my mother in law. She had an old Good Housekeeping laying around and found a pattern for a skeleton using paper plates, paper clips, black electrical tape and black marker. If I can ever find it online or get the pattern from her on here somehow, I will happily pass it on.
Hm, didn’t realize I was on zoom there. I need to get a full length picture and post it.
The very last peice I am going to show off was a gift from my mother in law. Many years ago, my husband’s parents went to a costume party dressed as cavemen. She hand dried some bones that she got from a butcher and strung them up as necklaces. She gave them to me and now its hanging in an archway that is between our dining room and living room.
So that is how much deco we have up right now. I will add more later when it gets closer to our party. I need to work on getting the yard mowed. With the shortage we have slacked at keeping our lawn trimmed. So when we get that done I will set up our graveyard, put some webbing on our fence and hang some of our ghosts from a tree. I also have candles to put everywhere (in black, orange, and purple of course) but I have to get the holders good and clean first. The got a bit dusty in storage.
Hope you all are enjoying the season as much as we are!
