Last Minute Halloween Fluffing

Like many of you I'm sure, this past weekend was spent getting a few last minute items on the Halloween to-do list accomplished.
Since there has been quite the uproar by the little people in the house about our lack of spooky stuff for Halloween I dug out last years stuff and quickly put together a spooky shelf.
Nothing fancy, just a feather wreath, black and white do-da'ds , skulls and mice.

Now the little people can't complain, but they can get a wee bit freaked out by mice on the ledge - - hee, heeeee.  (they look surprisingly real out of the corner of your eye as your passing by - with more than one yelp to prove it!)

I was even feeling a little crafty this weekend and decided to try my hand at making a trio of battery operated orange plastic pumpkins fit a little better into my decor.

After a couple quick coats of white paint, I plugged in the hot glue gun and wrapped / glued some twine to the steams.

I love how they tuned out. 
I just can't help but grin a little when I walk by.
Have a great day,


  1. I think the Halloween shelf is BEAUTIFUL, the mice and black skull INSPIRED. You should have printed a BEFORE picture on the orange plastic pumpkins transformed into very attractive white ones!

  2. I like your pumpkin update! Your house looks so nice and neat! I'm just downstairs trying to clear off my desk :)

  3. I would be grining at the white pumpkins too!

  4. LOVE your decorating, Robin! And I have three of those little mice this year, too...they really are real looking!

  5. Your Halloween shelf is spooktacular Robin! I'm the same way - I just toss a few skulls and bats around to satisfy the little ones. I love what you did to your battery pumpkins - fabulous!!


I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
