Halloween 2012

MUAHHH HA HA HA!!! It is that time of year again! 

Sorry I've been doing such a good ghost impression here on the blog lately!! We are eye balls deep in permits and blueprints and elevations, etc.... at ParkView. Lots of work, but not a lot of exciting blog content. And with all that work there hasn't been much of anything happening back here at home, besides getting a little ghoulish. I am just happy Sean gets home tomorrow after being away for the last week, so I can finally finish up a few blog posts that have been on the back burner. Being a full time mom/renovator/housekeeper is not easy alone, so I had to drop Blogger from my job description for the last few days.

But back to the REAL scary stuff! Wren and I had a blast getting into the Halloween groove this year. She is at a great age to help decorate now that she knows what is happening and what to look forward too (she has been practicing her "trick or treat" lines nightly!}.
 

Our decorating strategy this year centered around 'the Birds' again. We already had quite a murder of crows last year but we added a few more.

Last year I got all my crows at Michael's but I was insanely excited to discover a hoard of goodies at the Dollar Store lately. All of these spooky creatures were $2 or less at Dollarama, and I also loaded up on black cheese cloth (only $1!) to cover dressers, tables, and lamps around the house.


Here is a little glimpse into our temporarily Haunted House:

Always love your holiday decor-it never fails to inspire me! Good luck with all the nitty gritty details on park view. All that behind the scene work--so necessary, but tedious and time consuming!

Love you Halloween Decor as always! I just finished putting mine up as well - I'm also a big fan of the black cheesecloth look- so spooky!

How did you put the black pics on the plates? Love that idea.

Love the black birds! I live in Australia and Halloween is more plastic pumpkins and skull glasses, not so classy!

I love the black crow theme and the simplicity of the colors. This is the exact color scheme I am trying to go for. The plates on the wall are so cute!

I LOVE all of your decorations. The blackbirds are the perfect contrast with your all white theme! Mine is a little bit more colorful, I love it but I also really appreciate the uniqueness of yours! You can take a peek at my decorations if you want!
