Catching Up

Oh my! I am really behind when it comes to decorating and blogging.
I finally got the Halloween decorations
up on the fireplace mantle.
It's the same old black tin houses and wire trees
from the last few years.
But I changed it up a bit with the addition of the
"spooky" cheesecloth from the dollar store.
I found those
darling silhouette trick or treaters

at Big Lots.
They were only six dollars so even on my tight budget
I could rob a little from the grocery budget to buy them.
Is it wrong to choose decorations over food?
At my house the decorations last much longer than the food,
so doesn't that make them a good investment?

Looks gorgeous! and it's perfectly fine to steal from the grocery budget to decorate the house! Where did you find those cute little garden gates? I LOVE them

Do you have spotlights hanging from your ceiling or do you have can lights? I just love the lighting. My mantel is so dark, becuase there are no windows in my family room but the sliding glass door. I'm trying to find a way to brighten it up a bit.

love the way your mantel turned out. I always borrow from the grocery store budget~how else would we be able to get a find when it appears. Think I'll check out our Big Lots tomorrow.

Looks the trick or treators....Big Lots Rock! I'm with you.....for $6 bucks you didn't dip too deep into your grocery budget. :) Happy Fall Ya'll from Houston!

Over here, we have big adverts on how to feed your family for a fiver. Just trick them into thinking bangers and mash is a feast, and you'll have a clear getaway with them adorable little fellows!
I'd kill for pretty much everything on that mantelpiece. LOVE!

I am waiting for your fall mantel decoration. I think, i will have to wait one more month. :)

Those $ 6.00 look really good and they will last for several seasons.

Haha! I am always trying to justify a new decoration. I love your spooky mantel. It looks great!

HA ha ha ha! I totally do the same thing with our grocery money!
