Boo to You

I've been wanting to post pictures of my Halloween decorating all week but we've had a lot of overcast days which don't make for good pictures. I'm tired of waiting so here you go. The silver candlesticks and owl are from Goodwill, the bats from the Martha Stewart line and the witch hat ornaments by me. Did you know they make black cheesecloth? I found it at Party City. I love the way this turned out. I find I'm getting more and more into this holiday and I'm already making plans for next year. Happy Haunting.

  1. Jen, LOVE your mantle! Very cute!

    Can you send me a full photo of your mantle and the upper white wooding stuff? Weird question I know. My mantle looks just like yours, but I have one of those GAWD awful holes above it that some builder thought would be cool for a large TV. I want to cover it up. Would love to see the top. :)
