Haunted House Under Glass and a Ghostie too!

 So, I found this little plastic house at a yard sale for 50c, I thought it was cute and decided it was time to dedicate my little glass green house to an autumn theme ... it had been a winter scene and a spring scene ...

So after an afternoon of scraping of a full decal of sticky paper, and a spray painting with flat black I was ready to go.






Then there was  the addition of some brownish-orangish excelsior ... and a couple of tree branches painted black and then it was perfect for my spooky piano top.



I spent some time at work cutting out little triangles of halloweenish paper and making yards and yards of this pennant garland, which I added to a few places around the parlor.

I thought the small size added pop, without obscuring.



This is my little green house with its winter scene last year ...
... and then it was spring!  Since I had taken out the tiny picket fence for my fairy garden, I didn't have to worry about painting it black for my spooky fall scene.
... and if you take pictures through glass the reflections of light, and other things is so annoying, but I rather liked this shot.  It shows a reflection of a statue across the room, right on the front porch of the tiny haunted house ..... oooooo spooky, right?

Amy of The Red Shed, Home Decorating!


 Good morning blogger friends!  Today I wanted to share Amy's house.  Amy and I first got acquainted in the Reclaimologist and Other Crafty Chicks that we belonged to.

Amy has since gone on to start her own FB selling page at The Red Shed, which you might want to follow for great ideas, even if you are too far to pick up here in Utah County!







 Amy has lots and lots of fun decor ideas in her home in the charming small farming town of Genola, Utah, where I take a stroll every Monday morning with my friend LaVern!



I loved every inch of her styled living room ....


... and was just tickled to note that it was she who had purchased this cute gold globe from me at my July flea.o.logy sale!  How fun is that!  Thanks Amy, for letting me share your great decorating eye with my blogging friends!

Old Rake Door Decor for Fall


 If you live around here, you have probably noticed how fast things cooled off, so even though it isn't actually fall, it feels like it.



I saw an antique rake head used as autumn door decor on Pinterest, so when I saw this cute old rake at my friend Wendy's yard sale last weekend, I knew it was just what I needed for my door.,




A few faux autumn leaves and a simple pennant  banner made by tearing and stamping old book pages is all it needed.


 We've had buckets of rain yesterday and today, its enough to make one forget one lives in a desert!

So a perky autumn door hanger is just what I need to make me smile .... now I just need a cup of hot chocolate and a good book ...
