A Potting Shed Happy Haunting


My Potting Shed is ready for a Happy Haunting!


And I’m rolling out the pumpkins in welcome

 for Members of The Black Hat Society!


A wreath at the door warns:‘The Witch is In’,

 spelled with a sign scared up at Michaels

and some creepy black gauze. . .


Along with a vintage garden trowel, masquerading

as a rusty witch hand with a bejeweled spider ring.



Ravens have flown in for Halloween to light on pumpkins.



And witchy shoes are parked by the door

next to a broom, ready for flight!


A cauldron is bubbling with colorful mums. . .


And lanterns, destined for the graveyard,

have a new life & a spooky facelift . . .


Befitting their cracked glass panes, rust, and a broken hinges.


Martha Stewart Crafts Gothic Lace Window and

 Mirror Clings were conjured from Michaels. . .


Reusable spider clings adhere to glass surfaces. . .


And add to haunted lantern fun with ghostly

 white pumpkins, glittery spiders, leaves and twigs!



Chippy spindles repurposed as candleholders

elevate Jack Be Little pumpkins. . .



And a burlap banner puts the ‘Happy’ in Halloween. . .




Along with witchy legs, whether tucked

in a fern or in a cauldron at the table.



Spiders are multiplying. . .


And a bittersweet wreath frames a transferware plate.

One of my favorite parts is the Annual Witch Rides sign, and the SHOES! Kohl’s had the fabulous funky shoes??? Spider cling ons, creepy gauze and chippy spindles, oh my! Halloween just doesn’t get any more FUN than this!!! I will be smiling all day :) …love the bittersweet wreath with the spider plate, the bubbling cauldron of mums, the witch legs in your fern…..as I mentioned, I could stay here all day!
