Here it is....all ready for Halloween. Let's take a little look and see. The white pumpkins: one is crackled and the other fabric. I bought them from Martha at Vintage Truffle. They are awesome. Sorry the photo is poor. I don't have the hang of getting good pics. On the mirror is a hanging that says "Happy and below "Halloween". I know you can't see it very well. :(
This little Trick box and framed picture are from a Halloween swap and they are from Joanne at My Little Cottage in the Making...there are more, but must be saved for the post on the 8th. The pumpkin with a crow is from Home Goods. I like layering items with books:)

The photo above shows my vintage little Halloween candles. There is an Ghost,Owl, Pumpkin man and Kitten with Hat. They had sold for pennies in the "olden" days :) Now they sell for a few dollars each.The Orange paper pumpkin is OLD and is a treasure. It's a little burnt inside and I bought it at an estate sale last year for $15.00 . If it was in better shape it could be worth $35.00 or more :)

This is the other end of the mantle and this kitty in the pumpkin is a repo that I like. Again..layering:) So, that is the mantle for this Halloween. In the middle of the mantle is the black sprakle pumpkin that I "made".
Now... A Special ...THANK YOU to JUDY at BROCANTE AND ETC. who has given me the
"Super Commenter Award".... how sweet was that:) You should visit Judy. I so enjoy her blog, and as you are figuring out...I love to talk:) One of the benefits of a blog...No One Interupts me and I can talk as long as I want. Lets see your Halloween decor or Fall decor or more of your projects:) I do have more to say...so I'll be posting again this week:) Warmly, Deb

You have some interesting Halloween decor items. I really like that vintage tin in your previous post. Thanks for visiting my blog too. Nice to meet you!

Awwww... Deb, your mantel is very cute looking! I really like the "Trick" box with the JOL-Cat person on top! Looks neat with the Ghosts 'n Goblins book nearby!

I remember those same lil figurine candles... LOL ... my Mom♥ had a bunch of them! My sister and brother, both, have October birthdays, so that's why Mom had an abundance of stuff along the lines of Halloween.

Thanks for sharing and I look forward to seeing the rest of your Swap treasures... BTW, your new header is cute! God bless...

~hugs 'n prayers~

Hi Deb...

Thanks for the prayers...I'm doing much better than I thought I would be doing after the Dentist yesterday!

Love your Halloween decor!!!


Kim's Treasures said...

I love your mantle! Yesterday, I made some more of the large fall clothespins and today I think I will try to make a couple of fall cards and 2 baby shower cards. I need to find my mojo! Hope your cards are coming along for the fair!

You did a really great job decorating your mantle and I look forward to seeing more of your decorations. You put things together very well. I liked the picture of your 'boys' you added to your sidebar. Twyla

Deb, Your mantle looks great! I have played and tweaked...and untweaked mine for weeks! LOL! Mantles are the hardest thing for me to decorate! Yours is just fabulous! I like the things you received in the swap! I can't wait to post what I got in my package! ...and to see what everyone else got! ~Rhonda :)

Hilda said...

Nice mantle decorations.Sure wish I had a fireplace so I could deco the mantle! Always enjoy your blog. I check it daily!


Do you have a blog and thanks for your comments. If you have a nice long shelf, you could use that like a mantle.

Hi Deb,

Everything looks so nice. I love fireplaces..it must be so cozy with a fire lit. Fall is here in a big way today...brrr..It will help the leaves change though..so that is something to look forward to...
