Boo!

It's that time of year again!!! Halloween! Witches, goblins, vampires, ghosts, and ghouls! Carving pumpkins, the smell of ginger and spice, and foggy nights! My favorite excuse to tell ghost stories and watch a favorite spooky movie every night! We watch scary movies a lot any way for fun, but when I know Halloween is coming up we literally have a scary movie marathon as a sort of a countdown! My favorite movies to watch around Halloween are the Shining, the Witches of Eastwick, Beetlejuice, Hocus Pocus, the Witches, the Hand that Rocks the Cradle, the Good Child, the Exorcist, Halloween, Sleepy Hollow, the Birds, Dracula, the Addams Family and SO many more....which are your favorite scary movies to watch?


 I was searching online for some Halloween inspiration and my favorite arts and crafts are always found over at Martha Stewart! I just LOVE these pretty antique lace inspired pumpkins!


A new Halloween inspired use for those garden cloches! 


A haunted  pet cemetery in your front yard!


Just like Holly and Jessica I have a huge obsession with these black crows! I have a few from last year I dug up!


 Eerie specimen jars!


I LOVE these wool pumpkins!


All you need is some garden clippings, a few drops of food colouring, and a few jars to make this ghoulish display!

We had so much fun the other night carving up these pumpkins, roasting the seeds, and eating delicious pumpkin pie!


I tried a Martha Inspired lace pattern on my pumpkin and put a quick wash of cream coloured craft paint on it!



Here's our front porch with our creepy carvings!

I hope everyone has a Happy and Safe Halloween weekend!!! And don't forget to keep your pets safe indoors :)

I can't watch the Exorcist! I saw it when I was 13 and I still have nightmares... 14 years later! I do love a good gory movie, it's the eerie, freaky stuff with kiddos that I can't handle - The Ring, The Exorcist, Audrey Rose, The Shining.
