Two Weeks ‘Til Halloween!

I have never done much with Halloween decorations since we didn’t have trick-or-treaters at the apartment and our anniversary is the 29th, so we are sometimes out of town over Halloween.  This year I got a little inspired by this post over at Young House Love.  They are using a more black and white, gothic theme this year that really got my juices flowing.  I stole a few of their ideas.


In the foyer I dressed up the table using some leftover cheesecloth, a fake faux pre-lit jack-o-lantern, a black wooden cake stand (found at Goodwill), and brass-painted-black candlesticks (also found at Goodwill) with bleeding candles.

On the dining room table, I sprinkled some Dollar Tree skulls into the large hurricane that was already set up for fall.

Our candy bowl was a clearance find at Kohl’s a couple of years ago.  It sits on a silly spider runner that was also picked up on clearance at Kohl’s.  (Have I mentioned that I love Kohls?)

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
