It’s beginning to feel like fall is arriving! The fall colors should be gorgeous here this year. We’ve had plenty of rain and in fact, it’s been rainy and cool for the last few days so I’m ready!
The woods behind our house look beautiful with all of the rain, but won’t they look that much prettier with all of the fall colors?
In the meantime, I couldn’t wait any longer…….I must decorate!
Yep! Halloween is calling my name!
Yummy fall colors are my favorite for floral arrangements and such.
Everyone and most surfaces are getting a “redo”!
He’s happy to be in the spot light again!
A magical mix!
Apothecary redo. I found the black and orange glittered balls at Hobby Lobby last week. $4.99 a package. A pretty good price, I thought. The shredded paper in the bottom is mainly for filler. Fill the top with other spooky stuff like spiders, skulls, and fluffy orange balls that I cut off of a garland. Then I positioned the creepy witches hand so that it hung off of the side and covered its stand with beads to make it look like it was coming out of no where. A lime green glittered leaf with spider finished the look. Hope these instructions helped. I’ve had several people ask about an apothecary jar tutorial, but honestly I don’t know what to instruct you on. It’s usually just a bunch of small “stuff” that I grab and throw in..

The mantel and my favorite Santos.
This guy gets a special spot front and center. He was a gift AND handmade by my friend Brenda Little, an amazing artist!
If you don’t like going to this much trouble, simply fill a couple of jars and maybe a few bowls with beads and miniature pumpkins and such. There’s no wrong way to do it. Just throw in a handful and you’re done!
So BOO!! Hope you’re having a wonderful week so far!
