It’s Black. It’s White.

With the mudroom having it’s “new” look, I decided to go with a “new” Halloween look, as well.  The ol’ orange and black just wouldn’t have fit in here.

Why not spook it up with a little black and white?  I bought the little ghost on clearance at Hallmark last year, and I had completely forgotten about it.  Isn’t that fun?

A little nest from Hobby Lobby (I painted it), a little fur from Hobby Lobby (I cut it from a boa), and a little clearance pumpkin from Hobby Lobby (yup, painted it). I think the total was, like, $2.00.

Here’s a little sneak peak at my new china cabinet.  I’m giddy.  Simply giddy.

IMG_7389 I’ll be back.  Don’t forget to enter for the Queen Bee Designs giveaway!  It doesn’t end until Wednesday!!!

Love the black and white look! That pumpkin in the nest with the feather boa trim is fantastic. I want one!

Beth@The Stories of A to Z said...

I actually dug up your photos from last year awhile back because I knew I loved some things you did then. I adore the pumpkin, boa, nest combination and am totally you in my dining room right now. Hubby is a little confused as to why the pumpkin is in a nest and wearing feathers. Men. They just don't get it, do they? Very, very cute. And stop teasing us with your craft room already. Ummmmkay?

I simply adore the little nest and pumpkin. Thank you for telling us you painted that pumpkin white. I have seen them other places and wondered if they were fake or some weird white gourds. I had a duh moment when I read you had painted it. lol ;) Now you know what I will be doing today. hee hee

Love the black and white! I love decorating for Fall. When I get decorations out of storage, it's always fun to see what I had from the year before that I had forgotten or things I had bought and forgotten about. TFS
