Halloween Mantle

I was thrilled when Alex asked if she could decorate for fall/Halloween.  I have done it for soooo many years that I welcomed the help.  It  was refreshing to see a new spin on the old decorations. 


I like!


Gray cheesecloth webbing spookified the mirror!


The Christopher Radko cat skateboarded up the tree!!


This crazed cat stares at us all day long!!!


Black feathers and cheesecloth ghosts are hanging out.


A big spider and bright eyed crow have taken up residence under the scary tree.


I purchased this chair with the cute witch over ten years ago at Tuesday Morning.


These wire and glass pumpkin candleholders have shared many Halloweens with us too.


The witch and scarecrow couple are from Sam’s Club.


I made this last year at Halloween.  See more here.


I think I mentioned that G-Man and I have been taking pottery classes at Auburn University.

He made this adorable pumpkin!

I plan to show off some of our pottery soon.


Thanks, Alex!!!   I love the mantle and I didn’t have to do a thing!



  1. Would Alex like to come and do my mantle? I have ever so much stuff stashed away and I have still not dragged it out. This is crazy.

    I went back and looked at that cute little witch clock that you framed. That is just darling and soooo easy! Hugs- Diana

  2. Great job! You really spookified the mantel! So nice to have someone else doing it.

  3. So creative. I can't wait to see how you made that candy corn clock. Way to get into the season!

  4. I just love your fall/Halloween decorations. Such fun, pretty and scary vingettes.
