A Whimsical Halloween Home Tour 2015: Part Two

Hello, family and friends! Happy Fall and Happy Halloween! Welcome to part two of my Halloween House Tour. You can see part one here.

The puppies are so happy to see you! Come inside and get cozy. Kick off your shoes and put your feet up. Can I get you a drink? A snack? How about some coffee?

Halloween Home Tour

Greeting you in my entryway is this gorgeous gal, Winifred the Witch, and her pal, Mortimer. I purchased this darling duo about twelve years ago, from a cute little coffee shop. I’m pretty sure the pumpkins are from Target.

I was feeling overly ambitious this year, and decided I had nothing better to do than spend a few hours cutting out construction paper bats. It was kindergarten all over again, y’all. If you think you have some time to waste, here are some links to the bat templates.

Lights out!

Moving on over into the living room…

On this end table, I’ve displayed my steampunk, Boney Bunch Crow from Yankee Candle. I absolutely LOVE the Boney Bunch collection. I wanted to buy some new ones this year, but I don’t have the room for any more. I’m just out of space. Bummer.

This cute little hedgehog is a german incense smoker from Käthe Wohlfahrt.

And of course, my antique music book.

With the lights out, it’s so cozy!

I’ve been wanting to buy a large, antique dough bowl for a long time, but unfortunately, it’s not within my budget right now. So… When I saw this similar shaped serving bowl/tray at Home Goods, I knew it would work the same way. And, now that I’ve had it for a little while, I think I might even like it better than a dough bowl. I love the antler handles! I filled it with all kinds of fall goodies, real and fake.

On my other end table, I have this cute witch and her black cat, from Annalee. I purchased both of them at Home Goods.

And then I have this antique style, pumpkin votive holder. I’ve had him forever, and he was from Dept 56.

This sweet little mummy pillow is from Pottery Barn.

Onto my dining area…

On the table is another Boney Bunch votive holder. I flanked it with a pair of bone shaped candlesticks, and for texture, tiny pumpkins and Indian corn.

I’ve never lit the bone candles, because I want to re-use them year after year.

The elves help me decorate every year for Halloween and Christmas. They’re such a hoot!

Here’s my Halloween Tree on the dining room side.

The tree topper is actually a Nightmare Before Christmas top hat from Disney World.

On the other side of the pass-thru is this grouping… (It’s super hard to take good pictures in my home, as I have zero windows in the living/dining area and a huge window on the other side in the kitchen. That’s townhouse living! But I do the best I can.)

Halloween Home Tour

This owl is new from Pottery Barn. He’s a lantern and I really like him, but you’re only supposed to use artificial candles. I don’t have any artificial candles that are powerful enough to really light it up properly,  so I guess I’ll have to get one directly from Pottery Barn… Next year.

The witch is an altered photo, and the man is another one of those lenticular photos, that change when you move your head.

More Boney Bunch… This one is a candle topper.

These cute little mice are also new this year, from Pottery Barn. They are adorable! Squeal!

My sister gave me this skull the year I got married. I’ve had it for twenty-one years. Wow.

Here’s my bar/buffet… I decided to experiment with cobwebs this year.

My Byers Choice Trick or Treaters are back. My favorite is the wizard. He reminds me of Dumbledore from Harry Potter.

My big Halloween craft this year was the potion bottles. It was fun, but messy. I think they turned out pretty good.

My husband wasn’t at all thrilled when he found out I used his bottle of Patrón. Oh, well… He’ll get over it.

I made the ghost bottle topper too. I got the idea from Pottery Barn. Now, mine looks NOTHING like theirs, lol… But it’s still fun. (As long as you can tell that he’s a ghost, I’m happy.) He sits on top of a bottle of “BOOS.”

I leave this jar of mercury glass ornaments out all year round. I just put the bow and tag on the lid for Halloween.

Moving back around the room to my entertainment center and my fantel…

The black cat candy pail is from Dept 56, and so is the pumpkin man on the other side.

The glass pumpkin from is from Blenko, and the tea light holder is from Yankee Candle. They were both gifts from my aunt.

And then tucked into my entertainment center is The Kingdom of Notch by David Wenzel.

At the bottom of the stairs, my teddy bear sits, ready to go trick or treating.

I made the “eat more candy” frame this year too, and just stuck it in the chair. It’s pretty cute! You can find the template here, from the blog My Sweet Savannah.

And finally, a quick peek into the powder room.

Halloween Home Tour

I got the bloody hand clings, and the the evil face cling from the Dollar Store.

Halloween Home Tour

In the frame is an antique looking greeting card that I found at Walmart. And yes, that’s another Boney Bunch. This one is a tea light holder.

And on the back of the toilet, I have this print signed by the artist, Jean-Baptiste Monge. He’s an illustrator who does lots of children’s books and fantasy inspired art. I need to find a permanent place to hang it.

So that’s it… For now. I hope you enjoyed the little tour. Are you guys done with your decorating? Enjoy the rest of the season!

      Thanks so much! I think you do an awesome job as well! 🙂 You can find the Kingdom of Notch on EBAY at this point, if available. And If you google Jean-Baptiste Monge,he has a website. Sometimes he’s offering prints to order. 🙂
