JT has had his face painted differently everyday this week.
each year I attempt to make a ghoulish dinner. this year...sloppy joe goblins and wormy fries.
love how the jack-o-lanterns look all lit up. The white pumpkins are my attempt at getting all Martha Stewart, although for some reason the hubby volunteered to drill the holes...I don't think he wanted me touching his power tools. Doesn't matter....I think they look fabulous!
I claim the hippie and the pumpkin lord. The hippe costume looked better without the sweatshirt, but it was so dang cold. The pumpkin lord...well, who knows where that came from. It has a very elaborate back story...just ask JT. This was not his original costume, we started the season as Mutt from Indiana Jones, evolved into Stripe the evil gremlin and ended on Halloween as the pumpkin lord...go figure.
Hubby puts it up, I for some reason get stuck taking it down : ( ...ps...it is still up.
the entryway decor
my little hutch in the mudroom. love the white plate. hunted everywhere for the perfect one and found this one at Goodwill for $1.50...the vinyl is from Shelley at Wonderfully Wordy. The hutch is in need of a makeover (ie., paint job) it is on the long, long list.
one of my favorite displays every year...added the skulls in the vase idea this year. The idea is all over blog land. everyone "stole" it from pottery barn. and...like everyone else, I didn't pay $16 for 6 skulls (or whatever ridiculously crazy amount PB wanted). I paid $1 for a bag of skulls at Dollar Tree, brushed them with some brown acrylic paint I had on hand, added them to vase I had
collecting dust stored in the basement and added some $1 floral moss from Dollar Tree. The skull came with the husband when I married him. Or should I say, was part of his Halloween decor...and I love it. The books, well, I think Harry Potter is so Halloween!
