This year  I added little touches of Halloween into my fall decor making a few small changes here and there. Things remained mostly the same except for the bottom shelf. That changed completely. 


I removed the wood box filled with pears and dried florals to make room for none other, than more dried flowers arranged just a bit differently. You can see how this area looked just a few weeks ago on my Fall Decor & Entertaining Tour.

If you've been around for any length of time, you'll notice dried flowers show up quite a bit in my decor. Fresh flowers are extremely expensive here in Alaska and nearly impossible to get home during our icy winters that dip into the negative temps.

Flowers -fresh or dried- sing romance to me and make me happy.

It's fun to add spooky touch here there but I prefer to keep Halloween decor more on the pretty side, adding whimsy and details that are more along the lines of hauntingly beautiful instead of creepy and macabre.  


Pop in a skull here and there, sprinkle petals and it does the trick. Plus, there's a slight bit of a Gothic feel to this style and I love it!

Over here on this vintage table, I kept the old Ironstone pot filled with dried florals and added a winged crow to the mix. Crows and skeletons never bore me and are so easy to pop in here and there for a slightly eery look that's fun and a bit cheeky. 


Mr. Skinny Skelly came out in his pirate pants and all bare chested so I decided he needed a big piece of jewelry to fit his pirate persona. Yes, I named him. I'm weird like that. Everything and every one gets pet names from me. It's the southern roots coming out every now and again.

Speaking of hauntingly beautiful Halloween decor that I mentioned a few photos back-

My good friend, Amber from Follow The Yellow Brick Home and I are in our 2nd year of hosting an IG tag party called  #hauntinglybeautifuldecor

Everyone loved it so much that  we decided it would be a great idea and tons of fun  to host an annual Hauntingly Beautiful Decor link party for the bloggers too. I hope you'll join us.

Over here, I just added a few masquerade masks. For some reason my husband seemed to think this area needed color and he said the purple mask brightened it up.


 Evidently the blue velvet pumpkins and yellowish one wasn't enough. Okay... whatever he says. As long as I can do my thing, I'm happy to put a mask out when a man who tolerates my special kind craziness likes it.

Every Halloween needs a black kitty. Since I'm allergic to sweet kittens, kitty on the book cover and a big black doggy will have to suffice. In case you're wondering about this book by Edgar Allan Poe, I have to tell you---I haven't read it and probably won't.  

I've heard it's quite a morbid tale and those give me the hair standing on end creeps.  I'll stick to the silly and fun Gothic fantasy and romance genres rather than anything that is not.
