Text to go with my pictures, I seem to be blogger challenged...

Here is a bunch of boring text to go with my last post.  You can skip it and just look at the pictures.  It won't hurt my feelings!
My favorite Halloween decor this year is my collection of poison and potions bottles.  The 3 large labels are Martha Stewart from Micheal's craft store.  The smaller ones are words I cut out and taped on.  The skulls and other glittered bones under the cheese tray are from the Dollar Tree, I glittered some and left some plain.  More framed M.S. scrapbook paper. 
*We are in the process of picking out granite and tile for a new kitchen backsplash so those are samples you see in the background.  :)

The pumpkin pillows and runners are all things I made.  The glitter skeleton hanging on the wreath was also from Dollar Tree.  I added the glitter.  The Halloween banner is just black card stock cut in half (one sheet makes 2 rectangles) with letters cut out from patterned paper, then stapled onto black ribbon.  I burned the edges of the ribbon so they won't fray.

The framed 'spider' and 'beware' paper is so fun and I totally want to do those bottles too! If only I had space to display them! Remember the pumpkin patch sign and little wooden ghost and witch you got for me when I was a newlywed? I proudly display them every year. That and some fall foliage is the extent of my decor right now. :)

You are simply amazing! I found your link through A Soft Place to Land last week and have been addicted to your site ever since. Hard to believe that so many different and absolutely wonderful blogs link up in one place every week.

I have so much to learn. :)
