I told ya'll that I went to Michael's and got some super cute Halloween/Fall decorations and promised I would show them once my cross stitch was finished. Well, it is finished!!!
Pretty cute, huh? I will be honest. There were times when I didn't think I would like it. I didn't have a picture of the finished cross stitch and while I knew the general colors, I didn't think they would be so muted. But I like it. I think the colors work well.
So when I went to pick out some decorations, I immediately gravitated to the purple/black/silver Halloween stuff. I've always thought that color scheme was really cute. However, it really doesn't go with the cross stitch. Drat! So I brainstormed and decided to clear off the top of my hutch in the kitchen and make that my purple and black spot:
I already had the lanterns...they were favors from a wedding we went to (Thanks Justin & Caroline). The cauldron is actually a coffee mug and I picked up the black candle at Pier 1.
I got some black gerbera daisies and purple chrysanthemums. I already had the vase but jazzed it up some with some black sparkly ribbon. You can't really see them in the pic but I have some silver glitter branches poking out of the bouquet.
I loved this sign and Joseph actually picked out the black bird. He has impeccable taste.
This tombstone just fit so well that I had to get it.
I went with an orange/harvest type theme for the living room:
I love this sign!!
I swear the shelf is not as dusty as it looks!!! I could've sworn I dusted before I put the decorations up, but evidently I just did a quick dust of the edges! The Mummy is a cross stitch I did a few years ago.
I just loved these little picks!
Watch out for the pumpkin thief!!
My gorgeous mums!!!
