My little sun room is probably my favorite spot in the house. It’s surrounded by windows and light, and tucked into the back corner of my house, it’s nice and private and cozy. I particularly love it in here now that it’s all decked out for the holiday. It’s a great spot to sit curled up with a blanket and a book.
I’ve been collecting Halloween for years, and I know some of you have been touring with me for years, so many of these things may be old friends to you now. The skull lantern is new… the larger of my Pottery Barn clearance score from last year. The mummy is one of my craft guys. Bendable wire wrapped in strips of torn fabric.
The ghost is one of this year’s weekly crafty play day creations. The base is paper mache, painted and draped in cheesecloth.
This rolly basket is an antique laundry cart, meant to haul wet laundry out to the clothesline. I’ve filled it with vintage linens and pillows, then stuffed with lots of Halloween stuffies.
The paper bag pumpkin was made by my wee Missy Nik when she was just two years old. She painted the ceramic jack to the right of it for me years ago, too. Good grief, but these things are just beyond priceless to me.
And with that, we come to a good place to stop for the day. Thank goodness, right? Good thing there’s only one week left until Halloween! Then we can move on and I can bombard you with Thanksgiving and Christmas! (insert evil laughter)
