Halloween Tablescape - sparkles but creepy

I am so happy to be able to create a tablescape for Halloween. We have been so busy with packing and moving everything into storage, I was afraid I wouldn't have time to get the tablescape ready. But I kept my Halloween tub at my daughter's house so I could, hopefully, get it gone to share with you. So here I am at the very last minute creating this post.

Halloween is just about my favorite holiday; it's so fun and yet a little spooky. This year I am using a little sparkle plus some creepiness. 

Here's a little of the creepy with a little mouse climbing on a white pumpkin.


Skulls and bones on the table also add to the creepiness.


Black crows always come around looking for a little food.





The sparkle for the table comes with three shiny mercury balls on candlesticks. 



Now you have the idea of sparkles and creepy.







I have never used the mercury glass at Halloween but I am liking the sparkle.


The table is set with white Fiesta dinner plates plus a salad plate with a gray and black design.


Black stemmed goblets were added to stay with the theme.


You see who is sitting next to the coffee pot and not too far from the table. 


I tried to keep those crows caged but they managed to escape.


I have three witch friends who have arrived for the party. I just love Trixie, Dixie, and Peach. They are just about the cutest witches I know. I don't care if they are plastic, I love them anyway. 


Trixie, Dixie and Peach are ready to fly out on their bloom sticks so maybe I'll get to see them when I go out for . . .



Thanks for stopping by and watch out for the little ones while you are out - Judy.

Sold Our House - Packing and Moving

Big news from our house!  We sold it, yeah, we are so thrilled and ready to move on and be closer to our grandkids. The closing date is approaching quickly, we have had less than a month to get moved.  We don't even have enough time to buy another house. We are just rushing to pack and move everything to storage then we will start looking. 

So here's what is going on at our house.  



I am starting to question myself about my dish addiction, I have packed tons and tons of plates, platters, bowls and glasses. My love of them is catching up with me. I think my husband is in shock at all the boxes of dishes. It's gonna take a lot of storage space!!

Hope to make a Halloween post soon - Judy
