Where the witch hangs her hat....

Hi y'all...Halloween is just 2 days away. Are you ready? We are! The witch has even flown in (no, my mother in law is not here for a visit LOL) & I wanted to show you where she hangs her hat @ my house. On the front porch! *grins* I saw this idea in one of my Halloween magazines & copied it...isn't it cute?

The "peg rack" was once a "curtain rod"...it's made out of vintage doorknobs.

Key to the dungeon.


This little terrarium was a recent thrift store find but I moved it out, on to the drop-leaf table on my porch, as soon as I brought it home so it didn't make it into pictures. Now that I see it in pics, I realize that I need to tie a bow on top.


And I just made this wreath the other night (wish it were a better picture, it's really pretty in person) & I want everybody to know that I have successfully completed all of the Halloween projects I had planned & then some. Whew! That was a first! My house is a wreck, my dog needs to be groomed & we've been eating take-out for weeks but..... Hey! I got all my Halloween crafts finished. ;o)

I spray painted a black wreath w/ hints of white paint to add depth, then glued on black roses (from the dollar store), glittered black birds , a sparkly skull & tulle bow. And because I like my Halloween a little glam'ed up, I draped it w/ pearls. Spooky chic....I love it!

Love the wreath! Can't wait to see what's in store next. Here it is 10:30 and I'm still visiting blogs instead of doing my dishes. I'm visiting a great craft store on my lunch hour tomorrow - wish me luck!

Oh how cute is that witch hat and broom, etc. Your wreath is so pretty, and I would never have thought to put a H'ween scene inside a terrarium! You are so smart! Thanks for all of the inspiration! laurie
