Halloween Mantle

Hello my lovelies,

It’s the first day of halloween half term and DD was up at 5 this morning thanks to the clock change yesterday.  I am not amused.

I’ve been up since then baking, doing laundry, decorating, crafting and cleaning house. It’s only 11:30 and my bed is calling me.

But ANYWAY!  Enough complaining! lol

Here’s our 2014 Halloween Mantle.

 I didn’t buy anything new for the mantle this year for Halloween except the pumpkins of course. Would have been gross to keep last years ones!

 I just love the teeny pumpkin lights threaded through the leaf garland.  Everything on the mantle except the owl is light up so it’s gonna look great at night.

The autumn basket of conkers, cones and produce with ghosts was DD’s idea. She thought they looked cute poking up through the cones.

My little witch just had to come out and play this year again.

As you can tell we haven’t yet carved our pumpkins.  I didn’t want them to get all gross before Halloween and I’m sure DA (AKA Dumb ass the cat – really called George) would have been trying to eat the pumpkin inside anyway.

 And when it’s lit up it’s just gorgeous!

DD and I also frosted some glass jars for winter decorations and made some decoupage modge podged hallloween jars for our entrance hall. I’ll be sure to post a picture in a few days.

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s banana loaf recipe. It’s incredibly moist and gloriously tasty.

Bright blessings,

Mama R
