A HAUNTING WE WILL GO!



Halloween will be here so soon, I cannot believe where the time has gone. Today let's have a look at haunting up your home for Halloween.




We will start with the entranceway. How spookily decadent is this? Heavy velvet curtains beckoning ghosts and witches into your home on All Hallows Eve.




A couple of bats is always a nice touch. I love these big ones hanging on the porch and I do like lots of pumpkins.




Oh how pretty and scary this porch is. The crow, the banner and garland and such a lovely array of pumpkins. A ghost a great way to haunt your porch.




Silhouettes have become so popular the past few years. This house looks very scary and haunted, gorgeous!




You don't have to do all of your windows how about a witch on your door.




Or even just do some pumpkins. I adore the look of these bats. Very easy just white acrylic paint and as many bats as you want. A great alternative for the kids instead of carving a jack-o-lantern.




Inside, lanterns are a nice touch to a Halloween display. All of this great stuff is from Pottery Barn.




Halloween decor does not have to be elaborate. This is cheescloth pulled apart on a couch and paper bats. So easy but very effective.




Oh, I just love this. Spooky white pumpkins on a haunted carnival cart.




Of course if you have little ones you may not want to make your home too frightening so how about this adorable Halloween Candy Tree. You can problably find little candy containers at you local Dollar Store.




Last today, I think this display is just fabulous. I always have old chairs without seat I can't part with and I am definately doing this.




Don't forget to have a look at my post for RESCUE DOGS MATCH if you can't donate for the pups food perhaps you could pass the word along on your blog, I would greatly appreciate it and will do the same for you anytime.




And there is still lots of time to sign up for The Rusty Thimbles WINTER WONDERLAND GIVEAWAY for a chance to win one of many prizes including one of my Christmas Heart Door Hangers.

 Tomorrow I will be showing my visit with the pumpkins at our local Farmers Market.
