Well the Halloween decorating is done! I had a ball putting up my trees ( yes plural) and all my scary, silly, and fun Halloween what nots in my cabinet.
This is tree number 2. It is just a small tabletop tree but I love it!
My newest banner says Trick or Treat and fits perfectly under my plate rack in the kitchen.
My mantle in the Living room with the Halloween banner I made several years ago. I see that spooky elf Sparkley peeking out, do you?
This is the decorations on the island in the Kitchen. Don't you just love that little Lefton Halloween planter? It is one of my favorite Halloween decorations!
Of course the buffet is decked out with all manner of Halloween as well. See that fold out Haunted House in the middle? I got that in the 2nd grade (1967) for finding the most hidden cardboard pumpkins in our room. You want to know a secret? I cheated! I wanted the house so bad I pretended to close my eyes and watched the teacher hide them. I still feel just a tad ashamed every year when I put it out but I wanted it soooo bad. I had never seen anything like it and HAD to own it! It's been 47 years now, wonder if I will ever get over it?
Mr. Scarecrow with his honeycomb fold out hay chock.
And finally the famous "Happy Cabinet"
The first shelf is all my Halloween Peanut characters! I Love Peanuts!
The 2nd shelf is my Halloween village with a couple of overgrown guests in the back!
Shelf 3 contains some vintage Halloween noise makers, some characters that I have made, some Mary Moos, etc. I just bought that awesome skull at The Rescue Mission Thrift store last week!
And finally shelf 4 contains all my Halloween dolls.
She is my latest creation. She came filthy from the Goodwill is a ragged old dress. Now she is the Belle of the Halloween Ball.
This weekend my Crafty Friends will be back at my house for some wreath making and pumpkin painting. I can hardly wait! We have so much fun and laugh so much my sides hurt the next day!
