Come sit for a spell

As I've explained, I love Halloween. So when Tip Junkie asked for my decorations (well, not specifically ME by name, but just the same I suppose) for "Talk to me Tuesday", I obliged. Check out many others for some fun ideas on her blog. Click here.
So here are my decorations:

I decorate this area above my stairs for each season. Eggs for Easter, hearts for Valentines, etc. I have an antique entry table that I also decorate for each holiday. Click here for the labels.
I love my big witch as my latest addition to the spooky crew.
Over my window and hooks, are my new halloween garlands.
I also love handmade gifts - Susan made this for me:


And Diana surprised me with this last year - it came with impeccable timing as well:

I fell in love with this polka dot candle at Hobby Lobby (in the girls section), and thought I could dress it up for Halloween. I cut out a piece of scrapbook paper and taped it down to a cake stand. Add a fun bow, and voila!

Happy Halloween! I've got to get back to working on costumes!

I too love the Halloween ornaments, and would be interested in how you hang them and where you got them. Your house looks great!

Never fail to amaze.

The ornaments are actually Christmas ornaments. I purchased them at Tai Pan here in Utah. I think the orange one is actually considered a fall ornament of some type. I literally thumbtacked them up to the back of the little header I have. I have also thumbtacked things to the ceiling to hang items.
