Thanks so much Joann! You made our Halloween a little more special this year.
Back to what's going on in our house - Eric and I put together the mantle this year. While we were working on it, I was all tense because I just wasn't liking the way it was coming together. Thankfully, Eric kept tweaking things until a smile came across my face. I'm so lucky that he likes to see me happy!! Here's the final product.
We added a few accents on each side of the fireplace.
This year I whipped up a cloth banner to add to the mantle. When we attend the St. Louis Vintage Market (which I blogged about HERE), every other booth had this cool fabric banner in random fabrics. I knew I wanted one for my mantle so before I lost my urge, I bought the fabric and constructed this baby. It honestly was so easy and I love the way it turned out.
Every year Eric transforms our ficus tree into a spooky structure of skeletons and spiders. His creation this year did not disappoint.
I picked up this great owl after Halloween last year at Pier 1 and I couldn't wait to plop him on my coffee table this year. Something tells me he'll be popping up for many Halloweens to come.
So that's what I'm thinking about today. Now for the fun part -- time for you to link up one of your favorite posts. Please join me and Vanessa at X-tremely V in sharing what you're thinking out loud about today.
