Looking Boo-tiful

Hello!  I hope you've had an enjoyable weekend.  I attended a low key bachelorette party where we went for mani/pedis, thai food and then made a time capsule for the bride and groom to open on their 5th anniversary.  The day was wonderful.  The drive home was scary.  The rainfall was very heavy, I hydroplaned a couple of times, my antilock breaks went on when I stopped, one of my headlights was out (I was driving home at midnight for about an hour and a half long drive), the fog in some of the areas was so thick I had to pull over, stop, and talk myself into going a little further.  I was very glad to finally pull into my driveway and get out of the car! 

On sunday, I went for a little family walk with my sister, brother-in-law and baby Lily, watched a movie and then actually cooked a decent meal from scratch (a rare occurance for me, but something got into me and I felt inspired to create!  lol)

Anyhoo, I'm not much of a seasonal decorator - Holidays, yes! - but seasons, not really.  I appreciate all the lovely pictures I see of beautiful Fall decorations, but I don't have the drive to do it myself.  But when the holidays come, I love to do a little something to get in the spirit.

Last weekend I got out my Halloween bin and put a few things together.  I used the the decorations I got on clearance last year at Michaels and got the living room set up.

The feathers are from a centerpiece at a wedding we were at last year, the hurricane was a wedding gift and the glass stones I normally have in there with a white candle.  So I put in the black candle, the orange tea light holder, the ceramic skull and scattered some little spiders around.

I love classic orange and black for Halloween, so my orange vase and some more black feathers went well together

And then the doily spider webs I made last year, I hung from the curtain rods.


I put a few things up outside, but nothing to write home about, so if I add a few more I'll snap some pictures.

Are you getting your Halloween decorations out?  Do you like seasonal or holiday decorating?
