Halloween inside decorating...





I love folk artsy, whimsy, primitive halloween decorations. Some I have had for 15 plus years (purchased from craft shows), and some have been finds from tjmaxx or Michael's. I got the halloween tree last year at Tjmaxx. It was super cheap, and to be honest I hope to have something better down the road as my halloween ornament collection grows... I saw some cool ones at the Yankee Candle Factory last year like a day after I bought the so-so one. Such is life. All of the ornaments on the tree came from places in Nags Head. I bought the eye ball one this year during our vacation.
In the dining room I have my skull on display next to the china cabinet if you look hard- it looks black in the picture but it's covered in these silver bb looking things. On top of the china cabinet I have some little pumpkins on candle sticks and some crows. Halloween is pretty much the one time of year I use my candle sticks, and as you can see not for candle purposes...
I have a few other things around the house, but these are the highlights. I do have some cool outside stuff that can be seen in past years posts, such as the witch silhouette that my dad and I made in 2005, and the pumpkin urns I started last year. Speaking of, I found a picture in a magazine of cute trick or treaters silhouettes that I hope to make this year. Maybe, just maybe I can talk the husband into helping me with that this weekend. If he turns me down, my dad better get ready because I will be enlisting his help next.
Fall craft shows, cracker barrel, and of course Tjmaxx never disappoint with cute halloween decorations. It's all I can do not to go crazy and buy everything.

You have some serious Halloween decorations. I really like the pumpkins and birds on the candlesticks, well done.
