we had two insanely terrifying monsters…
i mean,this is the stuff of nightmares y'all. avert your eyes if you scare easily.
we also had a prim and proper dorothy…
actually, i'm not sure i even want to know. but i will tell you that every single time i look at it i laugh uncontrollably.
hope your weekend was awesome…mine was. i currently have NO voice due to laughing so hard and talking so much.
good times. 🙂
see y'all tomorrow!
Happy Wednesday, y'all! Instead of doing Wordless(ish?!?!) Wednesday this week I thought I'd do a tour of my fall/Halloween decor!
Fall is my favorite season. It always has been,but this year I have reason to really celebrate.
It is the first time we are experiencing a REAL fall as a family.
I'll do my best to share where I got everything,
but please ask any questions you might have and I'll answer them right in the comment section!
This is the vignette on top of the bar in our sun room. The feathers are actually wreaths that I purchased last year. I love collecting pumpkins and have so many. I had fun grouping them like this.
This is our centerpiece right now. It will likely stay up through Thanksgiving. We are hosting my brother and my sister in law and I think that with a few additions,this centerpiece will be just right.
gold pumpkin(tj maxx) /spooky plate(target last year)/owl and cat(the christmas tree shops/vintage "6" letterpress/gold h(hobby lobby)/vintage silhouette needlepoint and frame/felt jack-o-lantern(gift)/fall berry garland/feather wreath(joann)/halloween sign(hobby lobby)/antique mirror
You see this little table when you enter our front door. It makes me happy every time I walk in the door. 🙂
gourd from produce stand/squirrel (two smart cookies in savannah)
This is a little squirrel that sits on a table to the left of the front door. Yes,the babies always play with him. And I am okay with that. 🙂
halloween banner(target)/circle garland(made by my mother)/starburst mirror(belongs to homeowners)
It's no secret that I love decorating our mantel. It's kind of decoration central in our home.
Here are the details:
glitter pumpkin to right (the christmas tree shops),assortment of Hs/jack-o-lantern to the left(marshalls from years ago)
fall pillow(gift)/fake pumpkins(hobby lobby)/"halloween is a hoot"owl(the christmas tree shops)/glitter feathers(michaels)
mercury glass pumpkin(tj maxx)
And last but not least, I just kind of have pumpkins scattered all over the house. This one is my new favorite. I haven't found the perfect place for it yet, so I just kind of move it all over.
This hand-painted polka dot pumkin (a gift from my mom) is in the bathroom).
And I have these black pumpkins (from Michaels) all over the house. I am going to paint a few of them this week and I'll share the results!
Well,that's it. Hope you enjoyed it! Some of you have asked for a decor tour, so I though I'd share. 🙂
Have a beautiful and blessed day.
so i don't have many photos from halloween. a couple before we left, a few iphone pics. truth be told, i'm not very good at being a part of an activity if i have my camera out.
i'm sure others are better at this…but i miss out if i'm using my DSLR. i'm always hanging back, standing apart from everyone…camera in front of my face, and i miss the moment.
i didn't want to do that this year. i wanted to be a part of the festivities this year. for those of you that can photograph a moment and be present…that is absolutely awesome. maybe one day i'll be there, maybe not.
the girls have been BEGGING me to wear their costumes again, so i might let them dress up and play in the backyard and i'll snap some pics then.
anyway, here are a few photos. harper was a "GOOD witch" as she told everyone, sadie was a strawberry (i think this outfit was probably supposed to be strawberry shortcake, but she wanted to be a STRAWBEWWY!), lucy was a turkey and cate was a bumblebee.
i had grandiose plans to make catie a pilgrim (complete with a musket and hat), but shockingly (not,snicker) it didn't happen. so she wore one of H's old costumes.
does anyone see a shocking resemblance?
oh how i love that CZ.
here are the shots i got:
happy friday sweet friends! be looking for an awesome giveaway this weekend!
