As I was staggering out to the kitchen this morning after waking up, I walked past the living room as I do every day. I glanced at the table we have behind our couch, and thought it looked sort of cute.
I had decorated the space for the Halloween season with a few things I'd bought in a store, the wooden leaves I'd covered with Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper, the three pumpkins I'd made last year from more DSP and a lot of Halloween cards I have made over the years.
Since maybe 5-10 people at the most will see this in our house, I thought I'd share it with all of you.
This is the view of our house as you step through the foyer into the living space.
I know it doesn't show up all that well in the photo, but I went a little crazy with pumpkins this year. Everywhere I went shopping, I sought out their assortment of pumpkins. I ended up with pumpkins made from all sorts of different materials and varying fall colors. I then added them to the fireplace mantel, along with a handful I'd purchased last year. I love the way they all look.
Also, I was planning on making a long length of wooden beads to hang below the mantel. While I was at JoAnn's looking for the beads to purchase, I came across this cool ready-made garland -- big unfinished wooden beads and green wooden leaves. So I grabbed it!
A little closer view of the table with all its spooky cards made by Yours Truly:
As I was taking the photos, Fred strode through,
determined to make a guest appearance.
I was glad to take advantage of his presence for this Halloween tableau.
Fred stayed just long enough for me to snap two photos,
then he was off to cozier and sunnier surroundings.
Thanks for letting me share a little taste of my home with you!
