My mantel in the new house is very different from our last house. It's much skinnier and not as long. I've already told Byron that we'll need to put up a more substantial mantel at some point. Plus, the fireplace is off to one side of the wall, instead of being centered. It makes a bit of a difference for decorating, but I'm sure I'll get used to it.
(And no, I didn't paint that odd salmon pink color - it appears in several places on the first floor and will be the first thing I get rid of. Byron doesn't see the pink - he thinks it's red...crazy...)
This past summer, I was able to buy something I've been wanting for a long, long time - a sofa table. I picked it up from a neighbor at her garage sale (thanks Jane!). I love it. I might paint / distress it eventually, but for now, it's perfect behind our couch in our new family room.
And lastly, I have put up my shabby window frames in the foyer for my wreath displays. Again, a different arrangement than in our last house, but I like it.
The foyer decor is much the same as last year, with the Halloween tree and display.
Since we just moved in a few weeks ago, I haven't been able to create anything new for Halloween. I'm kind of bummed about that, but I do love the pieces I have - especially the Halloween wreath. Probably my favorite thing of all time.
Halloween is nearly here - I would love to see your Halloween home tour too. Share it with us in this week's MightyCrafty Mondays pin-up party...
