Deck the Halls With Pumpkins and Spooky Stuff

I'm taking a little vacation so this will be my last post for over a week. I plan to do a lot of relaxing and won't even see a computer while I'm away.  But in the midst of all the preparations I thought I would share a few more Halloween decorations.

Along with the movie/book/theatre themed decor I should you earlier I scattered a few Fall and Halloween Decorations here and there throughout the house.

The mantle - I put a collection of items up here including this wonderful bucket jack-o-lantern I picked up at Ross for way less than I've seen it for elsewhere.  The set of four bottles came from Marshall's and joined some I already had around the house.

I picked these candles up at the thrift store and they were perfect for this candle holder I already had and usually only set out for Christmas.

I found some printable labels on the Internet and made some "interesting" bottles of my own.  Love this sign I also picked up at a discount store!

The Kitchen Window which was difficult to photograph got a few items on hand and a couple new thrift store items.  The NEW dish towel was $1!

These wood letters that spell BOO were also $1 at the thrift store.

The "BOO letters" white when I bought them.  Why would BOO be white?  Made NO sense to me, so I painted and glittered them.  They look much better in sparkly black!

These candle holders were another thrift store find.  I had the small pumpkins and the metal tea light holder came from Ross. (they have super low prices on pumpkins, it's practically a pumpkin patch)

The Dining Room Table got a Fall arrangement without any spookiness at all,
unless you count the black ceramics.
(which includes a Frankhoma Pottery sugar bowl and creamer found at the thrift store) 
It can stay this way until after Thanksgiving.

I will miss reading all my blogs while I'm on vacation - unless I can figure out how to get them on my Kindle - I think that is possible - but the pictures wouldn't come out too great.

I expect FALL weather when I return, time for summer to go away.

Happy Fall Y'All!
