I am participating in Artsy Mama's Autumn Gathering. Head on over to her blog for a list of other participants!
I apologize in advance that my pictures aren't that great. I took them last night and the lighting isnt the greatest in here!

Let's start in the living room...

A lot of this is in the entertainment center, as you can kind of tell.

This picture is pretty cruddy, I'm sorry! The card came from my Sweet & Sinister Swap buddy, Emily.

On top now, my Halloween trees, some pumpkins I glittered, and the wall hanging from Emily.

We found this big bat last year.

I also made a set of these 'Spooky' blocks for myself. I used an orange bird for mine.

Here is the chicken wire frame I made during the Sweet & Sinister Swap.

And my garland...

Not too much on the coffee table. The kids like to use it as a couch, so there really isnt ever anything on it. But we made these little clay acorns this year, and I found the ghost and vampire for $.99 at Michael's this year (on clearance).

I'm really liking this display. My birdhouse from the thrift store, a Dollar Tree crow, an Edgar Allan Poe book, candy corn and a ceramic crow! Oh, and a creamy pumpkin from Walgreen's.

Here's a close-up of the little guy. I really like him! When I went back to get more, they were all gone.

This is my shelf above the couch. Now I know that 'Halloween' is missing an 'E'. Pumpkin likes to to jump up there and knock it down. I got tired of it and used a tack to secure the ribbon. Then I noticed the letter was missing and I couldnt get the tack out! LOL!

In the hallway, I have the little desk that I got from the thrift, along with the cauldron I made last year and a few other things. Ready for some witchy studies?

The kitchen table is pretty simple... These little pumpkins were $1 each at Walmart.

This is hanging above the doorway.

We use this talking candy bowl for fruit.

And finally, outside.

So the bathtub is looking a little pathetic...

I hope you enjoyed my tour!

I want to present you with a blog award for the autumn decor. I received one also and now pass it on to six other artists. I so enjoyed your blog and feel you are very deserving of the award. You can pick up the badge at my blog.
