Halloween Decor

Thought I'd share some of my Halloween decor Beckett & Petra are thrilled to display. They start asking about it in early September and finally in early October, I'll lug the bins out. It's a slow process, but eventually there's a little Halloween all over the house. The credenza is now the holiday-displace-surface I have been missing. We're still adding...

This year we added a few things:
We found these great spider transfers from Martha Stewart at Party City. Sheet of 32 for $3.00. 
They worked great and are easily applied like a temporary tattoo. 

We grabbed this fun 'snow globe' from Homegoods and some other spooky props from Party City. My faves are these old-time portraits that change as you walk by:

This is a little sculpture I got from Josh's college dorm room 23 years ago when we first met. His father has a bunch of sculptor friends and this was in his Dad's collection, passed down to him. Lots of little skeletons & bird skulls stuck onto a wire armature in the shape of a house. I've always loved it. I'll add a photo of the cemetery Beckett set up in the front. I have to set up the tripod and take it at night. It's lit with candles and pretty spooky.
