Making Halloween Elegant - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!


Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  I finally got some Halloween decor up on Monday after work!  Better late than never!  I used things I've collected over the last few years and set it up all on the dresser I have under my staircase.


My dad made the wooden black cats for me years ago and my mom gave me the old Victorian boots that look like witch boots to me!  She also gave me the silver candelabra. I usually like my silver polished but I decided to keep it tarnished for this vignette. 



The white pumpkins  and the cage with the hanging bat I bought at Marshalls last year.  I found the picture of the jack-o-lantern witch on the Internet and put it in the frame.


I added some vintage jewelry to give it some sparkle.




I only wish I would have got this all done a little earlier to enjoy it a little longer!

I want to take this time to say thank you to all of you that clicked on the link for TwoSmiles!  I won the Grand Prize thanks to you!!!  I'll get a new computer and printer soon!  I won by a landslide!  I almost feel guilty since I have a blog and used it to get votes but the most important thing is that I helped my company (HP) get the word out about this great site where you can buy gift cards online! Honestly, I work there and didn't even know about this until I heard about this contest.  This holiday season (or anytime) please remember that you don't need to go to the store to buy gift cards and personalized greeting cards! You can do it from your computer!  It's such a great idea!  Please visit TwoSmiles when you need to give a gift card and a greeting card in the future!  It makes it so easy!  Thanks again for all of you that helped me out!
