Jumped the gun...


I wasn't supposed to decorate for Halloween until October 1st (so says husband).
Well, I jumped the gun today. I don't have as many decorations as I would like but it's a work in progress. I'm going to make a spooky tree this week by taking an old branch, spray painting it black, hanging ornaments off it and stick it in a cauldron.
Should be fun!
So here are a few of my decorations...


I collect these old paper cut outs. I just prop them up infront of my exsisting photos. Someday we're doing this whole wall in built in shelves, until now it's just a cheap dvd shelf.


I collect these guys too.


Black ivy garland with purple glitter looks great above the curtain. I've added 2 ravens and my favorite Jim Shore Headless Horseman.


The colors in this Klimt painting ("Goldfish") look great with Halloween decorations!


The center channel self above hubby's giant TV gets covered in spooky chachkis whether he likes it or not!


He's not a balck cat but his name is Pumpkin!

Love all your decorations. I think you have just inspired me to do some of my own. But where do I get one of those cute Pumpkins in the last pic??? She's soooo cute!

Ohhh...I LOVE those paper cutouts. I remember them from when I was a kid. I used to love the cat with the monocle. I haven't seen him in like 30 years!! ....and the black cat beneath him...and that witch profile...I love it! ...and the house on the right. My mom had them all, and we would tape them to the windows. I started decorating for Halloween yesterday as well...couldn't wait another day!

Not so fast, Jen! What do you mean you don't have too many decorations? It looks like you have more than me!

Everything looks great, especially Pumpkin! :)

Oh WOW! Can I come live at your house??? Hubby is SO in hate with decorations...Someone must have strangled him with garland as a child or something...I LOVE what you are doing, I am so envious!

Looks great...must be hard to take down and put away after all the candy is given out. You have inspired me to get a little more "festive."
