A Witch and Pumpkins and Spiders - Oh, My!

The few Halloween decorations are in their places now so I thought I'd share them with you.

A trio of pumpkins are smiling on top of my Hoosier cabinet.

You've no doubt heard of the Headless Horseman. Well, here's my Handless Witch. When I took her out of the box her left hand was missing and I can't find it for the life of me. She's so cute though that I just had to put her on display. (I also own a "Venus de Milo" Barbie Christmas ornament but that's a story for another time.)

I bought a spider web tablecloth a few years ago, put it away and forgot about it. It surfaced when we moved and I made sure to store it in the china cabinet so it could be used this year.

The crystal dish on the table was a gift from a friend and according to the box it came in, is a pie dish. It's where I put the brownies or cookies that I bake for G1 and G2.

Silk sunflowers and pumpkin cups sit on top of my computer cabinet.

Halloween noisemakers - 2 are old and the others are newer - a spider that used to play a spooky sound and more silk sunflowers sit on top of my pie safe. I don't use it for pies either. It's where I store some of my cookbooks.

That's about the extent of my Halloween decorations this year.

Oh, my! I just remembered my Haunted House and Mickey Mouse ornaments that hang on it. It is way cute! Son gave them to me as a birthday present a couple of years ago. (No, my birthday is not in October, it's in September.) I know right where everything is so I need to get them out today and put them on display.

One more thing. While going through my Halloween boxes I also found some Halloween beanies - not the ones by Ty although I do have some of those - but kids' hats.

I plopped one on Elliott's head as he was laying on his bed and snapped a picture. He's thinking, "Oh, no! I thought Mikey took care of the whole Halloween dress up thing the other day."

Smoke just glared at me from underneath the vampire fangs.

Dani just looked pitiful. You know, I think one of my grade school pictures was taken in my Brownie uniform and I had a similar look on my face.

Not to worry. Elliott, Smoke and Dani all got their much deserved treats. And they didn't even have to put on a whole costume - this year.


  1. Too Cute! We tend to go a bit more scarier because we like to entertain the kids who come to the door. So our decorations are outside...not really inside.
    Love it!

  2. Ok I saw that Hoosier cabinet on another picture! I ADORE that!!!
    I still dont know why we arent neighbors! Just think of the fun that our fur kids would have together..! Dani is just TOO precious! They all are!

  3. Wow, you go all out by my standards! Love the pooch photos.

  4. Everything looks so cute! The dogs look a little sad to be dressed up :)
