I created this mosaic to give a quick look at how Halloween looks around my house. I am really liking how the china cabinet in my living room can be dressed up for the holiday and can't wait to "stage" it for all of the holidays on the way.
One of my best decorating tricks is to hang things from pretty ribbons...layered on top of framed pictures, mirrors, or big platters (an example of each is in the mosaic). I'm sure there's a better way to do it, but I just use packaging tape to tape the ribbon to the back of the base (picture, mirror, or platter). It's an easy up & back down decoration for us busy/thrifty girls.
And the last picture is of my favorite decoration...our sweet black cat.
We have teacher conferences this week and are off school on Halloween. I have allowed my kids to extend way beyond my usual Halloween costume cut-off date and have a feeling we will be running around on Friday putting costumes together. Just in case I don't make it back with a post before the end of the week...Happy Halloween everyone!
