For now, I'm keeping it low key on the front porch. I plan to add a few more pumpkins when it gets a little cooler. I was afraid they'd rot away to nothing in two weeks if I bought them now. The moisture and the heat would for sure reduce them to a shriveled mess.
|Looks kind of dreary. Oh and apparently we need to cut the grass....AGAIN.|
|I love my vintage flower stand. I've painted it a million different colors and I love to use it to hold those tiny pumpkins in the Fall.|
I've had this wreath for a few years. I think it's from Michael's or Target. It's kind of like having a turkey or maybe a rooster on your door....deconstructed and what-not. I'm glad you have that visual now. You can thank me later.
Inside, I just tossed out a few things here and there into my existing decor.
This year I put my Halloween chick in the kitchen with a few blinged out pumpkins, because he's hip like that. I found Sir Hot Mess at Tinsel Trading Company in NYC a few years ago (the pumpkins are from Michaels).
This is the feather wreath I used to put on my front door before I painted it a charcoal grey. I still love this wreath, so now I just hang it on the inside of the kitchen door.
In the living room, I just added a few pumpkins to the bookcase and a really cool retro letterpress card I found at Tinsel Trading, and then framed.
Maybe I should have named this post, Things I Bought at Tinsel Trading Company. Yep, that little glittered leaf is from there too.
In my apothecary jars, I switched out the sand and shells for some bleached moss (Pottery Barn) and a few little glittery spiders from Michael's.
|Nothing is scarier than a glittery spider.|
So there you go. I hope you feel all inspired to run out and buy some glittery spiders, maybe some moss, and if you're lucky perhaps you'll find a Halloween chick with a top hat.
