Getting in the Halloween mood

Ready to see what I've done with the sun porch so far.

Here,  take my hand..

These shelves have proved to be tricky
since I can't decide what I want on them.

The black light accentuated the spider web.
~at night it looks pretty cool.

I will update later ~ once I decide what else I need.

I made the makeshift chandelier with purple lights, tulle, and the yard stake hands,
and as you can see in the back ground.. 
 I was too lazy to hang the spooky curtains so I just tucked them over the normal curtains instead.
It works.

I actually have cut way back on the Halloween decor this year,
I just don't have it in me to set all of the stuff up.
It is kind of a relief knowing that once November 1st is here
I won't be overwhelmed by the amount of de-Halloweening to do.

The table..
Romantic dinner for two.
You think?

There are just a few more things that I want to add and then the porch will be finished.
I will show you guys the finish rooms soon.

As you can see,  I am catching up
but I am still not ready yet.

This weekend while trying to decorate, I got a little side tracked and much to my backs dismay,
decided to rearrange furniture.

This is a very lived in room and now we have just a little more space..
Now, I've got to spook it out!!

Dinner is ready ~  and I am hungry!!
See you all soon.
Have a great night.

It's funny how moving things around a bit gets you going onto other things...I knew you would get into the mood! ;D

Wow!!! I'm impressed and this chick doesn't impress easily. I had to laugh when you said you've actually cut back. Baby...I can't imagine more! Wonderful spooky job sweetie.

God bless and have yourself one fantastic weekend!!! :o)

The centerpiece on your table is awesome! I just don't think I'd want to sit in that chair where it would stare at me!

Found you on the Countdown!
