A Sprinkling of Haunted Humpday

The time has momentously arrived again to participate in Haunted Humpday hosted by the Queen of Halloween Marfi. Join us every Wednesday for a dose Halloween delights.

A lot of my friends in the blogosphere have already started decorating their abodes and crafting up some goodies, I prefer to start on Mabon/Autumnal Equinox as part of the celebration. I just learned there may be rats in my storage, so during the thorough clean out I will retrieve my hallowed possessions. Last time I cleaned it out I got rid of a lot of stuff so I see myself crafting and thrifting to get my Beach Bungalow transitioned to the Witches Cottage. Well it is a traditional witches home no matter the decor or season (wink).

I have been collecting seeds from my crops and flowers and discovered dried Snapdragon pods look a lot like little skelly heads.

 Speaking of heads this little guy is filled with lavender flowers and stitched out of material from a summer crop top. The girls were fighting over who was getting to use him so I must make more. He went to {E} who gets frequent headaches.

The first store around my area to have any decor was Michaels Craft Store. By now Halloween is up in most places. I took a photo of this apothecary set up so I can create something similar down the road.

 I wanted to buy tons of the vases and fill them around my house but I only had enough for one jar and these sticker labels for the apothecary bottles.

So I acquired these goodies at the Dollar Store. Flowers for a bouquet, a card to accompany, and the pumpkins to replace my shell collection on the t.v. stand.

I love this mix of colors, and how the whole project turned out. Created for an Autumn Swap this bouquet was sent off, but I shall make more!

It was a cold and slightly rainy Monday night . As the husband watched football in the living room,  the kiddos curled up in my bed and we watched The Monster Squad. I went to make popcorn and discovered little wiggles in the jar...ewww. Seems as though creatures are also trying to live in my domain. Next Wednesday is the official start to Fall are you ready?

P.S.  For all my fellow Mexicans
Feliz Dia de la Independencia!
