Only 51 Days 'Til Halloween!

Pin It!

So are you 
as obsessed fond of
 Halloween
as I am?

I am decorating 
a little early this
year so that I can 
share some fun ideas with you.

In this vignette,  
I'm going for that 
creepy apothecary look!
I found this awesome . . .
thing-a-ma-gig at the thrift store.


I think it was someone's homemade candle holder.
I took it apart & cleaned it, then removed the taper 
candle holder thing in the middle 
(so that I could use it for a pillar candle instead).
I also painted the base black.

Also, ever since I saw  
(*creative goddess*)  
Kristine Mckay's
apothecary idea, 
I've been collecting bottles 
from the thrift store . . .
to download Kristine's
apothecary labels to put on your own bottles!


This crow was only $5 & I think he looks
almost real perched atop this hurricane
that I showed you earlier.

A dollar store tarantula looks
like he's crawling on these old books.

in the background.

And here it is all put together
to tell a creepy, but fun, story . . .


More Halloween to come!

Warmly, Michelle
