Well, as far as decorating goes, it looks like I am at a stand still till I can figure out WHAT the Heck I am doing with the space??? It's going to take some time to figure out everything.
In the meantime, I switched gears to Halloween decorating.
Remember this picture?
This was my inspiration picture for the mantle
And here is OUR version of a Spooky Halloween mantle!
What do you think?
I am really happy how it turned out! Phew, after this project I am out of energy, my kids will have to fend for themselves this year and buy some store bought costumes. I usually like to sew them, but I'm no Super woman!(wink)
During the process of assembling the mantle, a few pictures fell off and broke into a million pieces in the MIDDLE of the night, EEK!!! Can you imagine the sound of crashing glass at 3:00 AM?
So after that heart-racing experience, I figured it was safer to leave the glass out of the bigger frames.
Here are some more pictures up close!
My 7-year-old son decided to also give the decorating thing a try. Here's what he came up with. You've got to LOVE it, he he :)
Happy Halloween EVERYONE!!!
