Spooksville Continues

I hit up Target a couple weekends ago to see what they had in store (get it? in store? hilarious!) for the holidays.

I found the short pumpkin in their dollar section for $2.50. (Wait. I’m confused.) I thought it was cute, so I picked up a couple. The candle pillars were maybe $9.00 total. A DEAL for how much I’ll be using them!

Add in a consignment shop birdhouse, a dollar store bird, and a dollar store frame to complete the vignette! Cheap shopping at its finest, I tell ya!

Earlier, I mentioned that I didn’t want to spend a bunch of money on new Halloween decor. I’ve stayed pretty true to that. You try and walk away from that spooky cookie jar. It’s not as easy as it seems!

Otherwise, I simply shopped the house. It’s amazing how you can feel like you have a bunch of new items simply by moving them from one place to another!

Do you think that same concept will apply to him?

I haven't even started decorating for fall...and by the time I get around to it, it will be Christmas! Yikes. Love the way your dog totally has his head on the pillow and a little blanky, so darn cute.

Lorie said...

I love it!!! The 31 is such a simple idea and that jar...I need that jar!!

Hoosier at Heart said...

Love your style! You go girl, I wouldn't have passed up that cookie jar either.

Kelly and Sara said...

Lindsay said...

So man cute decorations! But a dog with a pillow and a blanket....OH MY!! I love it!!!!!

Chelsy@ Sweet Pea Kisses said...

That cookie jar is amazing! I'm jealous...really jealous.

Kristen said...

That really bothers me, the $1 section being $2.50. This is the exact reason people start asking the dumb question of "How much is this?" at the Dollar Tree.

Love the cookie jar. Are there double stuff Halloween Oreos in there? There should be...

Dream Mom said...

Love the spooky cookie jar. I like that whole display behind the faucet.

For the birdhouse, it might look cool to drape some spider webs inside with the crow outside. I think I am getting into the mood now, lol.

I love moving around stuff too! Makes it feel new again. Everything is lookin' good! Your dog is so super cute too! :)

Leslie said...

I wasn't jealous when my skinny sister married a rich doctor and moved to Hawaii. I am however, insane with envy over your cookie jar and birdhouse!!!

Hahaha, just kidding! Sort of...

Carmen @ Life with Sprinkles on Top said...

Halloween cuteness! I love it all! The cookie jar IS cute. It would have been hard for me to pass it up too. I have seen a lot of cute things this year but have limited my purchases too.

Susan S. said...

Bwahahahaahha....shop the store....you are great! Love you simple but elegant decorations! lOVE THE eek!!!!

Richella said...

Oh, the nemesis. Chris! How can you not love a face like that?!

Your Halloween vignettes look wonderful. I'll say it again--how do you make even Halloween decorations look so sophisticated? It's amazing.

Tales From My Empty Nest said...

Love all your decorations. That 31 is adorable, yet so simple! Your dog is a cutie! Love & blessings from NC!

Love your vignette, Chris! I'm with you ~ I'm trying to use what I have or spend very little. The only other thing I wanted to buy was one of those crows/ravens at the dollar store for a birdcage I have. I had hoped to get there this past weekend, but it didn't happen.

Misty said...

I love all your great Halloween ideas. I'm still tweaking mine. Lots of moving furniture around here lately, so still finding homes for things. I picked up that Target pumpkin a week ago and must find a candleholder for it to perch upon now.
My daughter thinks she needs to "tuck in" our dog too.

To The Moon and Back said...

Laurie Jones said...

I'm so behind, your photos have inspired me though, I totally need to drag out the orange storage container! You're house looks great!!!

Marianne@Songbird said...

I really love your Halloween decor! Going with the black and white theme makes it so classy. I almost wish we would 'do' Halloween here too, I would so copy you then.

Chris said...

You bought some darling things! Love your vignettes!

Kathleen said...

Really like the color scheme, and especially the "eek"!
Happy Halloween.

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

You are the queen of class and you schooled those vingnettes girlfriend! I love what you've done. But then again, I love everything you do! Thanks for linking up and inspiring us.

Love the pumpkins on the candle holders and the big framed 31. Wonderful ideas!

Barb said...

Hey, we must be twins. I bought that target pumpkin just a few hrs ago. too funny. Love the kitchen vinette. Where did you buy the cookie jar? I must have one. Tooo cute. Not as cute as Maximus. He sure has a great life.
Love you, Mom

Creations from my heart said...

Love your display. I've been on the junt for that picture frame. A few years ago I got some a the Dollar Tree. Did you just get the frame and if so where did you find it? Thanks for your help.
Blessings...Sherry

I love it!!! I really like the "31". I think I might just have to make my own. I picked up a few things from Target, and walked away from even more. Boy was it hard. Thanks for sharing your decor. Loved it!

That dog is ROTTEN:) and i love all the halloween decore, especially the 31 in the frame. genius.

Holly said...

very cute decor! I'm a new reader clicking over from CG's fav reads, and just happened to notice those white candle sticks from Target. I looked for literally 6 or more months for white porcelin candle sticks (including at Target and tons of other places) to use in my master bath. None were to be found. I finally broke down and bought some at a thrift store and spray painted them white. Wouldn't you know a week or two after doing that I stumble across your candle sticks at Target. They are cuter than mine, but I just don't have the heart after I bought the others and bought spray paint to go out and buy something that is similar. To top it all off, for the cost of the paint and the candlesticks themselves, I could have bought the ones at Target. Such is my luck frequently. When I am looking for something in particular, I can never find it until after I have given up and bought something else. I just might have to go get them anyway! :)

I love your dog! That birdcage is so cute and I love the candle pillars, I need to see if my Target has them. I like how you put the pumpkins on them.

Sheila @ Dodging Raindrops said...
