Halloween Party Time

Kimba of A Soft Place to Land is having a Halloween blog party today. Oh, so fun. We just had to join in.

I don't do lots of Halloween, but here is what we have.

Here we dressed up our cake plate for halloween. I will post more about my cake plate this week.

I bought this book at a thrift store. I remembered it from my childhood. Love those kind of memories.

Always have to make some garbage bag ghosts!

Now I'll hand it over to Victoria:

I have also never decorated for Halloween but this year I decided to add a few scary goodies. After seeing Christina's book pumpkin, Meg made me one. I had to make a happy face or else my Sweet Girl would be scared.

After seeing this post on The Shabby Nest I printed out this owl and burned the edges, placed it on scrapbook paper and put it in a .25 cent frame.

I bought this "yikes" sign on sale at Michael's. I like the pop of color with all the black & white. Oh and I added the owl to the top of my cabinet. More on him later.
My spider crawling on a pumpkin

Another cheap Michael's sign.

I cut out some letters to spell out BOO and added some glittery pumpkins.

Meg said...

The burnt edges are genious! All of this looks like it was cut out of a magazine. I'm very inspired.

I found you from Kimba-and for you not decoarting, it sure looks like a magazine! I have often seen old books at thrift stores that i had when I was little, or that my grandma had-I would pick them up-and put them back. Never knew how to display them! thanks for the idea! I will be back-really enjoy your blog.
Please, stop by and say hello!

I like how classy everything looks! Very nice, thanks for sharing. I think I'm gonna buy a Scrabble game the next time I see one at a garage sale. I can't use the one we have...we still play with it! ~Sherri
