Halloween touches around my house ~


 We've been enjoying some fall and Halloween touches around the house for a few weeks now, but haven't been home much to enjoy them.  Now that this freakish Frankenstorm weather has hit, we've been spending a lot of time cooped up inside!  I've added a little more here and there, so I thought I'd share.


 Generally speaking, I decorate for all the holidays in a simplistic style.  I just add little touches here and there. 
In the kitchen, this single velvet pumpkin rests atop my coveted ironstone cake plate......


My old scale always stays right here on the breakfast bar.  I decided to add three more velvet pumpkins to dress it up a tad bit........


 So last year, my live pumpkins were stolen off my porch just hours after getting it all decorated.  To put it mildly, I was pissed!  I swore that it would be a while before any live pumpkins go into my decor again.  But this year rolled around and I just HAD to go to my favorite pumpkin patch.  I bought a few pumpkins with every intention of doing my fall ladder on my porch again this year.  Here's an old pic of my favorite fall front porch decor.....


 Once I got them home though, I just couldn't bear the thought of some kid smashing them all up and down the road, so I brought them inside and have been enjoying them ever since!  I love placing white baby boos under cloches and the pale orange ones look so pretty on an urn.......


I added some more baby boos to my apothecary jars.....



In my foyer, I added a spooky black skull wreath to my old mirror and just a few little things on my credenza......


and of course some glitter branches to liven things up a bit!



 In my dining room, I added some bat clings to the window and decorated the table with some of my favorite things like black cake plates, glittered pumpkins and my vintage ghost from Keely, and of course, you know there's ruffles!

glitter love!


 apothecary pillows at each end of the table......


 just a few things added to my buffet......


 more cloches with Halloween surprises......


 Boo!


The candy is all ready for tomorrow!  I just hope the little beggars are able to get out and about this year!  It is so cold, windy and rainy, I'm just not sure.  I haven't eaten a single piece, but my husband has eaten the first layer off the top!  He is begging the beggars to get here soon!!



Thank you all for stopping by!

I have stayed home all day today just puttering around the house.  I may have even taken a little {or a long} much needed nap!  Keely and I worked our magic at the space we rent at Goumas Candyland in Granville all day yesterday, so this was a much needed retreat here at home.  You can see pictures of the candy store and our vintage displays here.  Here's a sneak peek before you head over there......


I hope you all are safe and sound wherever you are!
