Halloween Mantel 2011

I totally went crazy this year guys.

Just nuts.

Ready?


Okay, there you go.

When I put everything together Mr. Fingerprints said, "Isn't that the same as it was last year?" Um.. No! There's a bird. I put a bird on it. Geesh, Men.

2010
2011

In all seriousness no, it's not any different from last year because I just love the black and white look. It's creepy, neutral with a little pop of orange. You can't really go wrong! Plus I'm on a spending freeze still so that glam-glitter Halloween I pictured in my head has to wait till next year when my money tree is in full bloom.


I got a few emails last year about the bats on sticks, and they're from Meijer. This year though in my store they have witches! I want to buy some more but I'll wait until they go on sale because I'm cheap. :) The Happy Halloween sign is also from Meijer (Go grocery store decor!) and the creepy witch picture is something I printed from the internet and seems to be pretty crooked. I'll get to that, maybe.

The sticks are a lovely gift from Mother Nature and the vase is from the decor hoard stash. Easy peasy.

Are you totally in the Halloween mood now like me? If it wasn't so blasted dark and rainy out I could finish the pictures of the rest of the house! Maybe tomorrow.


Until next time boys and gouls.. bwaaahahaha. 



Oh! And, I chose a winner via random.org for The Bird's Papaya giveaway and it was Sarah B. Check your email Sarah!

No shame is decorating the same because it is awesome! Love the pop of orange. Very simple but festive - just my style! Happy Halloween!

I think your mantel looks so great!! Tell your hubby that you made another change from last year... the # on the little metal bucket had a 7 on it in 2010 and this year it is a #4... :^)

I love it! I think that is pretty good that the hubs even remembered what it looked like last year! lol Don't think my husband would remember that. :)
