Show and Share Day

I knew it would happen. I could feel it the moment I posted about it. Something just wasn’t right about my Halloween mantel. Why can’t I just be pleased with it and move on?

I think I would have been just fine had I not walked into my grocery store tonight at spotted this sign. Yeah, my grocery store. I couldn’t put it in my cart fast enough.  IMG_3909

Needless to say, I’m still tweaking. Perhaps I’ll share the evolution of this tricky mantel (get it? tricky?).  My girlfriend wants to do Hobby Lobby and lunch this weekend. Darn her. I know she’s gonna make me spend money. At least that’s what my story will be.

You’re up! Show me…err…everyone all your projects! I’m anxious to see!

Tweaks only make things better. It's not a normal day around our house unless I'm tweaking something.

Ooh I like that sign. Cute! I think I saw that somewhere too. Hmmmm, Meijer? Maybe. Anyway, I was at Hobby Lobby yesterday and they didn't have any Halloween stuff that I just HAD to have. While they did have some cute things, I just didn't feel the need to spend any money.

Rachelle said...

You went to Meijer! :) I got my signs from there too, and the bats, and the little black and cream pillows.. They have really good decorations this year.. :)

Get out! What supermarket do you shop at?? I love it and I want one! I actually have a supermarket that sells some home decor type things. I think it's Stop and Shop {here on Long Island} and they actually have topiaries up on top of the different shelving areas. I couldn't believe it when I saw it ~ you can go in for a quart of milk and a topiary for your mantel in the same trip!

Oh Chris, not to say I didn't like your what you did before, but this, well this I LOVE! I know I'm tweaking until Halloween night when the trick o treater's are knocking on my door, so tweak away!

Stephanie said...

A grocery store? Lucky you! I would of grabbed that sign as well, your mantle is spooky cute.

Nancy said...

Love this sign!!!! Have a happy weekend, Chris!

It's absolutely impossible to not spend money at Hobby Lobby...or Target...or Michaels...or Old Navy. Ok, you get the picture. Just remind yourself how short a shelf life halloween decor has.

Robin said...

Awsome sign - love it. Looks great on your mantel too!

Leslie said...

My grocery store never has anything that cool! Just some bruised bananas and grouchy cashiers.

LOVE your mantle!

Pamela @ Atmosphere ID said...

Love the new sign! I think October is my favorite month of the year. It's so much fun.

Erin @ Two Story Cottage said...

Thanks for hosting! Mantels are made for rearranging. Hobby Lobby=dangerous but so much fun too. :)

Lorrie said...

Mantels are fun to rearrange because they are so manageable. It's not like rearranging an entire room. And it's fun. And yours is cute!

Krista@thegatheringplacedesign said...

It looked great before, but I do love that new sign! Don't you love it when you find great stuff at random places? Oh, and I NEVER quit tweaking. Anything. Thanks for hosting:)

Liz said...

Okay, this is kind of spooky... but I was at that store yesterday and I saw that sign and I thought to myself "that reminds of something I would see in a picture from JAG"!!! I am not kidding.

Lila said...

I really need to start posting my projects better! I'll try and do it! Be careful at Hobby Lobby! It's always a temptation for me!
