Countdown to Halloween

photo via Halloween Photo Cards

It's the first of October and the countdown to Halloween can officially begin!

This also means it's the only time of year dust-collecting cobwebs are considered appropriate ambiance. But there are more tasteful (and less disgusting) ways to incorporate morbid touches into your home decor.

(pictured clockwise, starting from upper left)

Williams-Sonoma, Halloween Pancake Molds, $19.95
Target, Porcelain Haunted House Cocktail Plates, $24.99
Crate and Barrel, Witch Hat Dishtowels, $12.95
Target, Bone Collector Place Card Holders, $16.99
Target, Skeletal Hand Servers, $9.99
Pottery Barn, Skull Tray, $24
Target, Feather Wreath, $19.99
Heritage Lace, Spider Web Round Table Topper, $8.50 (I purchased this last weekend. It's much prettier and more delicate in person.)

Next on my shopping list: the skull tray, feather wreath, and another pound of candy corn.


  1. I can't wait it is going to be so much fun!

  5. Taylor Sterling: I'm really excited for Halloween this year too!

    Crystal: I've been struggling with costume ideas this year. At least there's a few weeks left to plan.

    Kristin: The wreath is amazing! I just picked it up today and I couldn't be happier with it.

    Nicole Marie: Those are actually adorable pancake molds! I don't think I'd actually use them - I don't make pancakes often enough. There are a lot of cute Halloween cookie cutters on Amazon. Check out the Fox Run line.

  6. I found your blog today and read all through October in one sitting. You're not the only one with some entries to catch up on!
