Happy Wednesday friends! I am back today with more of my 2015 Halloween Haunted House Tour. We started the tour in my haunted front entryway, and last week I shared my living room. So now, let’s turn the corner and step into my spooky sunroom.
The sunroom is my favorite room in the house because it’s filled with windows and sunlight and views out to the woods behind. This door to the back deck is the crossover between the living room and sunroom, and here I’ve hung my big Halloween wreath. The feather base is a knock-off Pottery Barn wreath I made years ago, and later I topped it with this adorable kitty cat/pumpkin wreath. And now this piece is truly a one-of-a-kind.
Here is the top of my antique butler’s chest. A great spot for another spooky scene.
There’s lots of vintage-y folk art pieces here. Black cats and pumpkins. And a pair of Halloween trees.
A purple tinsel tree, strung with Halloween lights and filled with fall berries. Kitty cat and pumpkin tinsel ornaments, too.
A black wire miniature tree and large wooden lantern. The black gazing ball is a ceramic piece my little Missy made in art class this past year.
A couple of handmade zombies, from the Missy and me.
More baskets and containers filled with lots and lots of Halloween treats.
This big wire basket is a vintage laundry tote. Folks used to fill this with their wet clothes and roll it out to the line. For me, it’s a great receptacle for linens and blankets, and of course my Halloween friends. The ghost and the spider in back were both made by my Missy Nik when she was in preschool. These are the things that just melt my heart.
The big paper jack is also hers, made back in an art class when she was two. I do keep it all. These things are my true treasures.
Nik and I painted the lighted jack o-lantern together at one of those pottery studios when she was three. We call this guy Big Jack. Do you see the tiny kleenex ghosts hanging in the tree? Yes, from my little Miss.
Another Halloween tree, filled with sweet feltie ornaments.
And the PB knock-off beaded sticks my mom and I made years and years ago. Boy how I cursed that project at the time, but they sure have lasted remarkably well… and each year they are still around is a bonus to me.
More spiders for Patty! There ya go, Hun!
Some of my beloved Lori Mitchell figures, and my own handmade paper mache pumpkin who does, in all honesty, give me a small case of the creeps. Now that guy is scary.
We’ll end the tour here with this one last scene. A vintage basket hung on my basement door, filled with Halloween florals and handmade spooks and a greeting card skeleton my mom sent to me.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the tour so far! We’ve got one last stop to make, which I’ll share next week. Just in time for Halloween! Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you all have a wonderful day!
