Witching all my best ghoul friends a Happy Halloween!

Miss Beverly, our lovely PINK SATURDAY hostess, has given us permission to show some Fall colors this week instead of our usual PINKS.

Our front door

Wreath that I concocted after seeing a similar one at Decorator's Warehouse for $169 !!

Spiders Galore
Love how they bounce and flit in the wind!

Also showing off my new door color ~ Billard Green by Behr

My antique hall tree that I bought from my sweet friend Debbie at Morning Star Antiques.

It is just the perfect mix of robin's egg blue and shabbiness that I love!
Grandson's favorite little witch hangs here, ready for him to come play!

Tried my hand at making a few Halloween tags this year.

Forgot to fill my Graveyard Dust bottle with dust before making pictures.
It would be no problem to bottle some of that icky stuff around here!

Mantle decorations

Didn't decorate as much this year, which is kind of sad because next to Christmas, Halloween is my favorite holiday and I have TONS of totes of decorations.....
but new little grandson will soon be here and our 21 mo. old grandson is also keeping me quite busy these days, too.

I'll be lucky to get a few Thanksgiving decorations out!

Dining Room candelabra has fun flickering bulbs ~
They are in the Halloween section at Wal-Mart.

They look really cool after dark!

Sofa table, pewter candelabra and tarnished silver in the family room.

Cross-stitched witch made by me this year.

My Glittered Boo Garland which I didn't hang this year.

Please visit Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for all of today's participants!

Be sure to have a safe and happy HALLOWEEN!!

I'm also linking to the fabulous Debra at Common Ground today. You won't want to miss her awesome Fall Table decor!

Also linking to my sweet friend Laurie of Bargain Hunting with Laurie for her Favorite Things Party here!

Bugs and Hisses!

Happy Pink Halloween Stephanie...
What a boo-ti-ful share. I love it. Your wreath on the front door is so stinkin cute. I love the little spiders on this wreath. No scaring me here. You did a fabulous job.

Your home looks spectacular. A gorgeous spooky share. You sure went all out for the holiday. I love it. Thanks for sharing. The glittery skulls are neat too. Also loved the lettering.

Have a safe Halloween. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Natasha said...

Wow, your Halloween decorations are amazing! I might go and buy a few spiders and other bits and pieces and see if I can borrow some of your ideas if I may!

Happy Halloween and best wishes for a fabulous weekend,

Ooooh, SISTAH, I loooove what you did with the door! The colors are fabulous and you did a great job on the rest of the "mansion" also. Smooches and hugs for mum!!!!!

Suzann said...

Love your Halloween decor!!
It is nice to see someone that does cross stitch.....I used to stay up late at night after my kids went to bed and cross stitched to the wee hours.
Now my eyes are bad I would have to get a magnifying glass (hehe)
Thank you for sharing!

Your home looks amazing and I bet the grands love all the fun at your house!! Got to love the glitter skull too. Those flicker bulbs on the chandy is perfect. I love those too.

Have a fun Halloween weekend and we will talk this week.
Love you, Celestina Marie

It's hard to decorate when you have little ones around. Your front door wreath turned out great! Your hall tree is gorgeous too! I also spied a little GWTW in there. One of my favorite movies! Happy Pink and have a Happy Halloween!

You are all decked out girl!! Very fun and very festive :)

Oh your Halloween decorations are wonderful. I love that wreath. But the piece I adore is that beautiful hall set decorated for Halloween.

Happy Pink Saturday Stephanie. I now wish I had done some decorating for Halloween, but it's too late and I am all but ready for Christmas. We usually eat at my son's for Thanksgiving, so no decorating there either.
I love all your spooktacular things, especially that beautiful wreath. And the glittered skull is fantastic. Hope you have a fun halloween. Love and hugs, Pat

Wow! You have really outdone yourself with your Halloween decorations. What a lovely house you have.

Your post has certainly given me a few new ideas. Thanks for joining this Halloween edition of PS.

Susie Jefferson said...

Wow, this all looks AMAZING! We don't much celebrate Halloween here in the UK (although we're catching up fast) and your whole setup is fantastic! I'm doing this next year... then straight on to Bonfire Night and then into the Christmas decorations. Yaaay!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Wow Stepahnie, a lot of great photos.... boy do I like you collections of silver on the walls... it looks fantastic! Your wall tree is another great piece... your right just the right amount of shabbiness.

I think that is so darn cute with a wreath with hanging spiders... oooh spiders.... that is so cool. I like the color on your door too....

Thanks for the visit- I wanted to email you, but I can't get through on anybody's email.

Have a Wonderful Weekend and HPS*

Stephanie, your H'ween decor is great! Love the dancing spiders, and your front entry is gorgeous! Your hall tree is wonderful. I love all of the little cross stitched H'ween decor you have everywhere, and your skull has more bling than my wedding ring! I'll have to remember those flickering bulbs for next year. They look so cool! I also wanted to tell you that I love your H'ween header. Thank you for linking all of this fun to Favorite Things Sat. laurie

I adore your hall tree-wish I could find one of those around here!

Rita said...

Dear Stephany,
how many bootiful halloween decoration have you shared for PS.
Love them all...
I didn't decorate my home as in Italy, which is where I live, Halloween has only recently made its way among our young people, so apart from a few throwing Halloween parties or some others watching scary movies, no special decorations around.
have a blessed week
p.s. I nearly forgot: your front door wreath is sooooo cute!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...
