Carla said...

Love your decorating , its Halloween but classic. I never really decorate for Halloween because it always looked like clutter to me, But I love this. I love the crows. Is your witches hat just a costume hat or what is it made of I can't see it very well . But love that idea. And that could be frugal decorating to use a costume hat.

Again, I am jealous of your storgae space. Seriously, how and where do you store all of this FAB stuff? Ryder would LOVE the spiders!

I love the white pumpkin collection at the end the most :)

Stacey @ The Blessed Nest said...

I love all of your displays! Looks great, and I'm sure the fam is enjoying it too! :) Your crows are great. I finally found some at JoAnns, since my Dollar Tree didn't have any! They were on sale for $2 and change. Your black and white looks amazing!

Bettsi said...

Joy, it's great! But I think you forgot a particular creepy crawly critter:

Cat Nap Inn Primitives said...

I LOVE YOUR COLOR SCHEME!I love it..come and do my home for me...you have a great eye for decorating...

Rambling Girl said...

Dang....everyone has crows but me I think. I can't seem to find them anywhere. Dollar tree says they only send them to the big stores and ours is not a big one. Oh rats!

Joy I just love all your decor...so spooky!

Joanne Kennedy said...

You did a great job. I feel like I walked into a darling little shop with everything displayed so perfect!

Hugs,
Joanne

Sue said...

I love it all but my most favorite is the table with the tall candle sticks you made with the leaves going up them. Everything on that table looks great!!! I don't know where you keep everything either.

Joy, I just love your stacked suitcases so much I can't stand it! Where did you get them? I find lots and lots of stuff at garage sales and thrift store, but only once have I found a neat smallish suitcase in all these years! Any suggestions for where to pick these up? Mona

Anna said...

Hi Joy,
I was searching for an email link to email you. I copied one of your ideas that was done FOREVER ago, but am just now getting a post up about it. Just wanted to give credit where it was due and let you know that I linked to you on today's post. Thanks for all of your wonderful inspiration.
God bless,
Anna

vickie said...

How adorable. I don't really decorate for Halloween now that the kids are grown but I do for fall. (I'm now starting to rethink this a teeny tiny bit!!!)

Valarie said...

That skinny pumpkin in the urn is just genius!

Sandy Toes said...

How fun! I have a question, Miss Joy, I have a table that is painted white...I want to paint it black...how should I go about this???do I spray paint...regular paint...I am scared to touch this piece of furniture.

Libby said...

Oooh! Your haunted home looks like it is out of a magazine! I just love it! Happy Hauntings..

Shirlee said...

Wow Joy, you have definitely put your creative stamp on Halloween.
Who needs candy, your decorations are a real treat for the eyes!
Crows are so hard to find where I live. I found one at Michaels and it was..get this..16 dollars! I don't want them that bad.

I have to ask, how do you keep the kitty from running off with a crow? My cats go nuts for anything with a feather on it. I have a feathery SpongeBob Squarepants pen that I have to tuck securely in my purse because they know he's in there and try to steal him.

Enjoyed the pictures. Great job as always. :)

Cameo said...

I love your entry way. It is crisp, spooky, and beautiful. Seriously, everything looks fabulous!

To The Moon and Back said...

Hi Joy! As usual, your decorating is amazing. I love how everything looks, and you gotta love the crows & white pumpkins.

I finally got my blog going, so I hope you can come by and visit me. I have yet to paint all those frames I inherited, but you'll be the firs to know when I do.

Lisa said...

i second wanting to know where you store all your stuff. That is my biggest problem 2400sf and no real storage space at my home. The decorating looks fabulous!!!

Carol said...

Joy,
Love the classy look of your Halloween decorating. I went to Dollar Tree today to look for crows, but none were to be found, you know what they say, 'those who snooze,lose'! :0)

chriskauf said...

HI Joy ,
so sorry I missed your question , my email notification doesn't work well...
the pine is actually pine flooring , tounge and grooves , I believe it is for cottages ,it was very cheap and I found it at home depot. The pine does nic and dent , mostly dents , I did antique it a bit before I stained it , you can see the screw holes they look like nail holes , I like the rustic look of it so I don't mind the distressing. I use a brown crayon to fill in any deep nics that show the light pine . I am very happy with the floor .
Thanks for stopping by my blog, I love yours , that chalk board is pure beauty , I want another one.
Chris

Kathie said...

Tricia said...

It's amazing what you've done with things I too just have laying around! Lovely Holiday Decorations..thanks.

Astrid said...

OMG! Your decorations are absolutely FABULOUSO! I'm curious...do you think the styrofoam balls with the leaves glued on would survive outside? I was thinking of doing something similar to stick in my window boxes. I'd probably need to get large styrofoam balls and lots of leaves to make an impact...
