A Halloween Corner Cabinet

This is the undecorated corner cabinet in the dining room at Love and Life at Leadora.  MacGyver husband built this cabinet for me many, many years ago, and  it is usually filled with my collection of pink and white dishes.

Have you noticed that many folks out in blogland started their Halloween decorating in early September?  Feeling the pressure, I thought I would begin Halloween decorating with my corner cabinet.

I bought the purple "trick or treat" banner at Tuesday Morning sometime during the summer.  The plates are Debbie Mumm dishes that were purchased at Target years ago.  One of my favorite Halloween decorations is this Sandi Gore Evans figure.  I wish I had more, but these figures are no longer made.


No, we don't have a problem with mice at Love and Leadora!  In fact, those are creepy mice silhouettes that I cut out.  Halloween decorating with black construction paper is my favorite, because it is fast and cheap!  You can find the mice silhouettes at http://images.marthastewart.com/images/content/web/pdfs/pdf1/1005_creepymice.pdf

Now that I've begun Halloween decorating, I'm anxious to do more.  I have more ideas for indoor and outdoor Halloween decorations, so come back and visit again soon!

I linked to the party at Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday.

  2. oh - I have Debbie Mumm Christmas plates... this reminded me that I might need to get them out this year. Sometimes I don't put all my decorations out... depends on my mood & decorating style for that season.
