Properly Spooky

***To enter to win the fabulous earrings from ThirtySixTen, go here***

First there was the light fixture makeover.


Then there was the bat explosion.


And now I’ll give you a glimpse of the rest of my holiday decor.

Throw pillows:


(Macy…a free stitchery pattern that I found online last year)



Sparkly black candelabras:

(Savers. Orange candles from IKEA.)

Vine pumpkins:

(Target dollar section)

Skeleton in a hurricane:

(Big Lots)

Creepy spider specimen:

(It’s the kind that grows 4 times it’s size in water. I got mine locally at Orson Gygi for about $3. The jar is IKEA. The sparkly skulls behind it are from Dollar Tree.)

And a little something for the kitchen:

(Cake stand from Home Goods, dome from Tai Pan Trading, skull and hands from Dollar Tree)

And tomorrow? A Halloween-y one day giveaway for all of you!

Check back bright and early for your chance to win!
