My Fall/Halloween Home

 For me, Halloween was always second only to Christmas.
I decorated my home inside and out, and always
had on a costume as I greeted the trick or treaters.

But then, something changed.

Orange and black just didn't do it for me anymore.
And those jack-o-lanterns....ick!

Fall decorations filled my home, but no Halloween.

Until this year!

When I saw Karla and Beth's Romantic Gothic
Ghosts tutorial....I got busy!

So.....here is my version of Halloween.














No orange.....no jack-o-lanterns....

And I'm loving it!

What a fantastic spin on Halloween!

I've been seeing those creamy white pumpkins around and immediately fell for them.

Your house looks like something right out of a magazine.

I don't decorate for Halloween, but am totally into Fall decorating, but who knows? Maybe someday I'll try something totally different like this.

Beautiful!

How funny you post this. I am SO OVER the orange ceramic pumpkins with little faces cut out. They were all the rage in the 90's and now - YUCK!
But I don't have the heart to just Goodwill them. You have given me inspiration! I think I just might try a ceramic paint on them. Maybe they'll make the cut - maybe NOT! I'll let ya know!
LOVE THIS!
Hugs! Karen
