Did you miss me?
Well, I’m all moved in, almost all the boxes are unpacked, and we are settling in. It’s been fun decorating a little in the new place (I will be posting some pics this week) and I had a little fun decorating a “mantle” on my front porch for Halloween. And, I’m ready to get back to blogging and some projects!
I’m usually not a big Halloween decorator since my kids are all almost grown, they don’t really get into any more. But I felt a little inspired by all the mantles I saw over at Home Stories A2Z’s Halloween Mantle Party and thought I would join in. I hope I’m not too late.
Since I don’t have a mantle in this house either, I decided to make a vignette out on the porch for the trick-or-treaters to enjoy next week.
I mostly used things I already had. but picked up a few things at the Dollar Tree to complete it. The chalkboard is actually a print from a Goodwill frame that I spray painted with Chalkboard Paint covering the
ugly interesting painting. A few ceramic pumpkins, crows, leaves, and grave stone from Dollar Tree. Oh, the caldron is from Dollar Tree too, with a stick out of the yard that I sprayed black. All sitting on a coffee bag covering an old drop leaf table I haven’t refinished yet.
Looks a little spooky, huh?
Are you ready for Halloween? Do you decorate for it or just for the Fall season?
