A Halloween House Tour

Hi there Cloud friends.  Today I am taking you on a tour of my house as it is decorated for Halloween.  If you are not interested, I totally understand. If you enjoy this day as I do then come along...

 As you walk in the front door, you will see my pumpkin collection all made by Tom Jones of Fairhope AL.

 Then my desk will great you.  I love this antique, it is one of my favorite pieces of furniture!

 To the left is the dining room where several of my favorite witches will greet you.



 A wonderful folk art witch, a birthday gift from my DH.

 My DD gave me this puppet witch for Christmas one year.  She is a good NW witch, and enjoys her coffee!(Notice the empty mug)

 Another gift form my DH.  That man really knows what makes me happy!

 Now we are in the upstairs hallway.

 First cross stitch I ever did!


 Welcome to my craft room where I have just a few photos of my sweet grand children dressed for Halloween!

 Back downstairs for a few close-ups.

 On the desk.

 Two of my favorite Halloween stitches.

 Even the powder room is decorated.

 A gift from my BIL and SIL.  My BIL says it is a family gathering of my family! That man has a good sense of humor!


 Family room with a focus on the fireplace.


 A shock here, I actually finished a few pillows!!!!! If you look closely, you will see a few gifts from my stitchy friends! Thanks Jamie!!!

  We are now in the kitchen.




 A dress and hat just waiting for the right little witch!



If you made it this far, I thank you and wish you a most Happy Halloween !!!!!

  6. Wow! You decorated the entire house!! Amazing!!
    We don't have this day in our culture although kids now play the trick n treat part.
    You really did a great job decorating with the theme. I should start liking some theme and then decorate once in a year but then I don't have enough storage space to keep.

    Also, the silhouette on the mantelpiece, is that a piece of fabric or wood/metal?
