My last post was about my new Halloween tree, and that is the star of the season now. It sits, warmly lit, in all its spooky black and orange, enhancing all Halloween movie viewing. It is the main piece of Halloween decor for my family room.
And now for the rest of my house, beginning with the kitchen and living room, which are open to each other.

I decorated the living room similar to what I did last year, adding and subtracting a few things. One addition is 6 handmade ornaments, three to the mantle and three hang from my antique blanket chest.
My orange, glass pumpkin lights make a return this year. I have them all over my house and I love them. They look beautiful and shiny, both lit and unlit.
I must say, it is especially fun to decorate for Halloween when you live in an antique house! There is already a spooky, historic air to the place. Not to mention, real ghosties are practically a give in!
Just picked up my "Not Every Witch Lives in Salem" sign in Salem last week.
In my kitchen, the Pottery Barn Happy Halloween sign is hung again, but I've added more Halloween to the room this year.

I was a bit more elaborate in my library last year, but I didn't leave it completely Halloween-free! That would be positively wicked!
Well, that is a quick tour through my Halloween house (though my bedroom is Halloween themed all year long)! Hope you are all having a spooky October!
