Halloween Mini Home Tour

Welcome to my home dressed for Halloween.

I have set out some seasonal touches in my dining area and living room.
I call it a mini tour because for now, it is only in these two rooms.
 I was going to do the bathroom and kitchen,
 but when I was unpacking the Halloween boxes, I realized I don't have as much as I thought I had.
Maybe at the end of the season I will try to get somethings half price for next year.

 As I mentioned in yesterday's post, don't mind my reflection and the ghost's in the curio cabinet's glass.
Apparently I have ghosts hanging around me all the time.
So long as they behave, they can chill with me!
So from now on just call me - Diane, the ghost chiller

We celebrated Thanksgiving last weekend,
and pretty much after this event I pack away the Fall/Thanksgiving decor.
And bring out the spooky stuff.

We make a habit of calling items in our home by name.
Meet Gerry the skeleton.  He is sitting here for now, until I can hang him up somewhere.
But in the meantime, I keep walking into his leg!

A witch that sings....bought her the year we lived out west.

 Getting creative with some Dollar Store little black teddy bears.
Elevated one bear in a candy dish and give them a backdrop of chickens and a barn star.

Some fall decor mixed in with the Halloween.

Ivory dishes and brown transferware.....adds some Fall colour.

Not to be ignored, the buffet has some Halloween.

Thank you for visiting and touring my little condo dressed for Halloween.

This is what I am currently working on.....a Halloween tablescape.
Just starting to gather some ideas.

Now that you have toured my place, let's see your home all decked out.

  1. You have some cute Halloween decor Diane. I don't do Halloween decor. Just a pumpkin that I can put a tea light in on the front porch on that night. There sure is lots of it in the stores though. I was at Pier 1 yesterday and their's is marked down already.

  2. My kids would love it if I put more effort into the spooky side of Halloween. You've got cute little touches all over. :)

  3. I enjoyed your mini-tour of Halloween décor. So fun to see how others decorate for this occasion and whether they go spooky or cute - love your mix of both.


  4. I enjoyed the tour! You have some lovely Halloween decorations and I like how you layered them on the shelves. We hope to get our stuff out this week too. Belated Happy Thanksgiving wishes to you.

  5. I enjoyed your tour and your ghost story that I read last night. It looks so festive!

  6. Had fun on the tour. Very festive!

  7. I love decorating for holidays and seeing what others do:)) Thanks so much for sharing!! Just dropping in from Lets Get Social Sunday to follow (via Twitter and GFC and on my way to follow via Facebook)

    Hugs and thanks for linking up to Lets Get Social Sunday!

    PS I fixed that link:)))

  8. I love Gerry the skeleton! Love love everything! xoxo Jen

  9. Many cute touches. I like how it looks when the pieces are inside a cupboard behind the glass. Makes me want to come closer for a better look...which you did.
    I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  10. You are clearly someone who enjoys Hallowe'en. There will be a friendly witch wreath on the door for the neighbourhood children (and treats) on Hallowe'en, but that's it for here. (There are some autumn touches, though.)

    Have fun!
