Halloweenie Mantel

Hopefully you are gearing up for a fun, festive weekend celebrating this spooky holiday.  🙂  I always have loved Halloween for some non-traditional reasons…  My mom always makes the same simple meal ‘sopa’ soup and hot dogs, and we pass out candy to the many kiddos.  Then my dad and I watch whatever cheesy horror movies are on TV after eight o’clock.  There’s also the element of freshness that arrives the following morning, November 1st, when the promise of Thanksgiving and Christmas is dwindling in the air.  So Halloween is sort of the kick-off to a couple of months of so much cozy family time.

I have so much to show you still, and I am running out of time!  On Monday I hope to continue the Halloween tour and just post all the rest…  😉

But today’s post is about my favorite room and the mantel that I love.

Implementing the decor that is usually on this mantel, my mom-in-law just added a few more details to make this spot extra festive.

 We’ve got pumpkins on candle sticks and all.the.feathers.  There’s no shortage of feathers in this house.  😉

This little cage is completely multi-purpose and makes a great perch for a crow.  I have seen this cage used a variety of ways and during different seasons.  Shop your house for items that will work in your vignettes before you go to a store!  That’s one of the biggest rules to decorating on a budget.

 Pretty little details, even in a spooky scene.

I hope you have a perfectly ghostly weekend.  I will see you back here Monday with ALL the decor!
