Welcome: Halloween.

Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday and ever since buying my house last year I love decorating for the season all the more. Most of my decorations are sort of quirky and that’s just how I like it. What kind of decorations did you put up for Halloween this year?

This little guy is made out of a light resin and hangs on my coat closet door right inside the entry way, giving guests a little hello!

I love these little buckets – vellum is stretched behind their eyes and mouths so that when you light a candle inside they look like little jack-o-lanterns. This year they’re hanging out on the counter in my hall bath.

A little tea light fits in a spot behind the tombstone and looks awesome when lit up at night! The apothecary-style candy jar features a ‘Tricks’ label on one side and ‘Treats’ on the other. I always opt for ‘Tricks’!

I love the deeply recessed carvings in these resin pumpkins.

Mini pumpkins all lined up in a row minding their Ps and Qs while a crow watches on.

The 14″ tall witch and scarecrow are packed beanbags while the grinning cat is a vintage-inspired bobblehead.

And of course there’s no way I could neglect the bar cabinet – I picked up this sweet little sign from Target that says ‘Pick your Poison’. So very, very fitting!

Thanks for visiting!

    I've always wanted a Halloween Tree, but haven't found one that I actually like. So this year I took 3 birch branches that I usually put in a floor vase around Christmas and hung them horizontally on the wall and use all of my Halloween ornaments and what not and hung them from the branches. It looks pretty cool I also have some vintage trick-or-treat bags that I framed, some Halloween-themed stacking shaker boxes, vintage 40's toys and on and on. The only thing new I bought this year were the letterpress greeting cards you featured the other week. Happy Halloween!

    It's my favorite, too! Love your decorations!

    As my kids get older, our props seem to get scarier. I have a silhouette of a witch in my window and hanging just below is a caldron that lights up and blows "flames." We also have a real (academic) skeleton in our window that we bring out on Halloween along with one of my dress forms. They become a headless bride and groom. And we have a fog machine. I hope to blog about some of our little tricks later this week.

    I love all of these. I really enjoy the vintage Halloween decor a lot. I've been trying to collect as much as I can each year to complete a big collection. Black cats are my weakness since I own one and basically, he owns my heart (shhh, don't tell the boyfriend). Great job girl! ox

    I love it – I truly enjoy the vintage halloween decor. I've been trying to collect it little by little each year. I'm obsessed with the black cats (since I own one and he's stolen my heart, shhh don't tell my boyfriend). I love the crows as well! Well done – your home is amazing!
