Somebody up there doesn't like me!

Today, I sadly started taking down and packing away our Halloween decor.  While taking a little break, I saw my darn broken down camera sitting on the counter....taunting me (I say).  I picked it up, turned it on and found it was "kind of" working again.  It was having brief breakdowns still, but I was able to snap a few pictures.  I am annoyed that I missed so many photos in the last 2 days and now that I have packed away or dismantled about a 1/2 of our Halloween decor, it decides to work again.  Here is a few of the pictures I was able to snap between breakdowns. 

Tall jar of bones. 
You can buy these jars really cheap at Marshalls & TJ Max.

Short jar of skulls

Our Guest Bath

Close up of framed quote in bath. 

This quote is from the Metallica song, Enter Sandman.  Not a Metallica fan, but thought this quote was priceless for Halloween.  It took me 10-15 minutes to put together - Printed out quote, burned edges of the paper and backed with a piece of black construction paper, framed in a Goodwill $1.99 frame.  I would have liked to age the paper, but this was done just before my dinner guest arrived.  Our guests really got a kick out of it.

Guest bath 2

Missing a shot of framed vintage (creepy) photo that I had already packed.  It was sitting next to this folk art skeleton figurine, in our guest bath.

Living room skulls

Skull & owl on top of Fridge

Bat silhouette hanging in spare bedroom window (shot from inside).
See this post for a brief "How To" on making these silhouettes.
Man silhouette hanging in guest bedroom (again shot from inside).

Missing our last silhouette.  I already removed and stored our "Witch and Caldron" silhouettes that hang in a double window in our master bedroom.  Maybe I'll get a shot next year.

Bought these 3 vintage ghost figures at an Estate Sale.

Two (of many) lit pumpkins

Owl hanging out on a curtain rod in dining room

I wanted to get some update porch and outdoor decor pictures this year, but sadly we already packed it up late last night.

If I find other things as I pack I will try to snap some additional photos.

Blessings, Tracy

  1. I like you Halloween decor - especially the glass jars. Thanks for the tip on those. I will definitely search my local Marshall's for them.
