Some Decor...

Yard stake
I went shopping today and discovered some incredible finds... of course I'm not going to go cray-cray and post everything. I did want to show this awesome yard stake (sorry the plastic is still on it) that I purchased from Michael's. It was oringally priced at $24.99 and I got it for a steal at $9.99! Totally made my day (Not to mention saving me some time)!

I also wanted to share some pics from around the house. I am still working on having everything done for the party this upcoming Saturday... I'm so excited! Of course some snafus occurred, but at least they have been minor thus far.
To the left is my gypsy table. I bought a real crystal ball last year (for my wedding decor). I bought zombie tea light holder from ABC Distributing. I used coins from leftover honeymoon currency (we went to Mexico). The book is a really cool copy The Hobbit. It has a really neat texture & a rich brown color (the title isn't on the outside of the book). I also made my own tarot cards.

 To the right is one side of my fireplace display. I used a paint marker to draw the words on and just hand painted the black pumpkin. I used a battery-operated LED tea light (just in case someone tripped over it). We haven't had rain in a LONG time, so I sure would hate to start a fire! We are actually under a burn ban (for the rest of the year) so my plans to use Tiki torches in my graveyard out front have kicked the bucket.

This picture shows some of the outside decorations. Ineed to photograph the cemetery.

 I love this! He decorates my driveway entrace flower bed.


  1. Oh lucky you! I had that very same cemetery sign in my hand here at our Michaels. Our sale price was $14.99...go figure! Must be the difference between U.S. and Canadian prices.
    Love what you've done with your yard. Is that burlap hanging from the eves. I'd like to know what you used, it looks great.

  2. Thank you! :) I received the burlap from a friend of mine. I'm not sure where she located it at.. I will have to ask her to be sure. I believe she found some used burlap sacks (I have also seen burlap for sale at my local Wal-mart), cut them, sewn across the top and shredded them. I'm sure "new" burlap would look just as good - just throw some fake blood and black paint on or paint a design before you shred. :]
