  7. I'm quite a fan of "copy-cat" decor, especially when it's done with thrift finds or something you had already, sometimes not even spruced up, but used as is. Nothing wrong with taking the whole idea, as well as the inspiration.

    And for a hundredth of the cost??? Who could pass that up.

    Decorating Halloween Houses with three of our girls in a bit---darling wooden birdhouses with verandahs and picket fences and all. All sorts of glittery string and beads and paints and eyeball stickers and lots of blingy spiders and ravens, etc. Inspiration was Purple Chocolat Home's papier mache ones from September, but of course mine will have more pink than purple.

  12. Love them all ... I would love to be able to copy-cat the first one if I just had some bittersweet.

  13. Love the tall glass cylinder. Now if I could find some small white pumpkins I could do this easily, I have everything else.

    God bless.

  20. I've enjoyed fall more this year in Florida than previous years. I'm finding touches of fall here and there help. I love what you've found, especially the bowl of walnuts! That really says fall to me, being from the San Francisco are where every fall meant harvesting a bumper crop of walnuts!

  21. I love your inspirations, BJ! The white pumpkins in the tall glass vase and the candle in the bowl with walnuts. Any way to Pin these?

  22. BJ very inspirational shares. Like Jane I too love the baby boos in the tall glass cylinder vase. I have a great one from Pottery Barn and tomorrow morning I am filling it with boos for our bathroom. Your candlesticks look great black and also would make a spooky statement for Halloween with Black candles. I love Halloween and have been enjoying adding touches to our home. Have a delightful weekend,
    xoxo,
