Skeleton Foyer

We’re a little more than a week away from Halloween and I am behind in sharing all of our fun decor!  🙂  There’s so much to see, and so far I have only posted about the entry.  Today we’re taking a peek at the other side of the foyer, since I shared a few weeks ago (agh!) about the other half, right when entering from the front door.

I’m excited to say that for the past month and a half, this has been the funny view for visitors…

 I love that it’s pretty, because obviously the decor and finishes are beautiful, BUT it’s just the right amount of spooky.  🙂  Beautiful and festive…that’s my favorite combination.

This is our skeleton collection, and I’m pretty proud of it.  Mister Bones, his dog, and maybe the skull of his late wife?  Who knows!  These guys are not the expensive ones from Frontgate… I think they’re from Target.  But all of the limbs move, his mouth opens and shuts, and the best part is that he is posable.  At least  I think that’s the best part — it makes for some good laughs!

 I think this little pillow is so cute.  It used to live outside and is a little faded, but the muted color works nicely with the more neutral tones in this room.

A fun table vignette anchors this spooky display.  Curly willow is an instant Halloween element!  Use what you have.

 This is how our skeleton looks these days.  This is my husband’s doing…he’s got the best kind of sense of humor.  😉  No eyes, no need for glasses, and no reason for a winter hat, but at least Mister Bones is ready for the next season (although, don’t tell him, but he will be packed away in a box by then!).

Happy Friday to you!  I hope you have the best weekend.  We will be going to another Sweet Salvage market and I can’t wait!
