......................Happy Halloween everyone!

yep, today is Halloween. My favorited holiday. Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas, but there isn't the stress of 'what do I get so and so"  and the tons of people running around looking for gifts. It is just a dress up, and have fun kinda day! I am posting some pictures of some of my decor this year.
This is the scene you see as you walk into my hallway. I painted the dancing witches, which are from an vintage Halloween card, on some cardboard, made the gigantic frame, (4ft!) and hung it up. The small pictures are Halloween re-dos of old family photos. The red bat is filet tatted, and the faux fire place is plastic. I am thinking of actually painting one onto the wall, as there isn't room for a real one.

This is my couch with one of my witch's hats on it. Also, my Halloween quilt, and pillows. I found the owl pillow at the good will! There is also knitting on the couch, which became my brain hat.

This is my front door. I put bat napkins in the background of the window, and hung this great wire and glass witch in it. Got her on sale after Halloween last year at Hobby Lobby!
Hope you liked my small tour, of course there is lots more, but don't want to bore anyone! Have a great Halloween everybody!!!

boooooo hoooow are yoooooou ~ and Rebel? I fancy your are both all dressed up. DH is like Linus sitting in the pumpkin patch. In spite of the fact that we have never had a trick-or-treater on the ridge, he bought a 5 lb of tootsie rolls, tootsie pops (all things tootsie) and has his big bowl sitting near the front door.
He MIGHT actually get ONE ghoul; the little boy next door is big enough for Tricks and Treats this year. We will see.
Otherwise I'm gonna be eating tootsie rolls for a month! LOL B
