This week, I changed the autumn decoration over to Halloween fun!  I ended up going with a black and silver theme this year.

I was inspired a couple of years ago by these pumpkins on Horchow (the white ones are from this year):

 I bought a few silver pumpkins at Michaels and stick-on rhinestones at JoAnns.  Then I just eye-balled the pattern as I worked my way around the pumpkin.

I got the idea for the smaller pumpkins under the cloche through Pinterest of course.  It was as simple as pulling black lace/fishnet stockings over them.  Here were my inspirations:

Sources (L-R): BHG, Shelterpop, tesorofino

I used the leftover fishnet material to make cozies for my African violet planters.  I also used the silver mercury glass votive holders that I bought for Christmas last year and put some silver ornaments in the black cups I found at Goodwill last year.


In the foyer, I pulled out a black cake stand to display one of my new creations.

After seeing a bird skeleton under a cloche on Pinterest, I decided to use a little skeleton from a Dollar Tree garland under the cloche from an old clock.  (I repurposed another one here)  I mod-podged some scrapbook paper to the bottom and hot-glued the skeleton to the base.


The black glass owl came from Home Goods last year and the skull in the frame was just printed from a free archive site.  Cheesecloth gives the table the final spooky touch.

Lastly, in the powder room, I changed out the autumn beads in the hurricane for the tiny plastic skulls that originally came from the Dollar Tree.

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.

    1. Thanks Emma! I had a lot of fun decorating for Halloween this past year – it changes every year though, so we will see where it lands this year!
