Thankful Thursday... The Halloween/ Fall decorations are up!

Thankful Thursday... All my Halloween/ Fall seasonals are up!
It was a crazy day, but I got it all done...
&
didn't break my neck with all the acrobatics I was doing on the ladder hanging the stuff from the ceiling! My guardian ghoul was watching...( guardian angel Halloween style)
This is my armoire... there is a witchy side and a boo side...
The witchy side.... all orange and black.
This is what started my Halloween decor two years ago. I had never decorated for Halloween until I saw these cute jars in a store and thought, " A little bit of Halloween wouldn't hurt."... now I have got mostly Halloween and I am loving it!
My "BOO" side... a few skulls and other haunted mansion type things...
My mantel... This year I made the "All Hallows Eve" banner...
it was a fun project! Plus I got a few new skulls.... You can never have too many skulls laying around your house!
p.s. my candelabra now has bright purple candles and it looks much better...

My FAVORITE new Halloween addition... "Quoth the Raven, Nevermore!"
I saw this sign at Dear Lizzy and LOVED it!
I reminds me of teaching English... every year my classes would study Edgar Allan Poe and then we would read "The Raven"... I sure wish my name was LeNore, righ about now!
That is all my Halloween stuff...
Mitch told me I had WAY overdecorated, Caylor said he felt haunted, Jacks thought I had lost it... & Meg loves it!
What do those boys know anyways?
Below is all my Fall decor...

It all looks fabulous as usual. You've got me beat. I'm still trying to recover from my vacay, but I did manage to pull a few fall things out. Next week will come the Halloween.

Wow, I'm impressed! I don't think you went over-the-top. In fact, I thought this was really tastefully done! Where did you get the "All Hallows Eve" banner? Did you make it yourself?

I just wrote a blog article on Halloween decorations, too. Check it out! http://blog.sticviews.com/?p=765
