Make No Bones About It

Art from my Llywellyn's Witches Calender

Now that I got your attention with a straight forward quote "Happy Humpday & October". How is this month treating your skeleton so far? The mornings here in the valley are chilly with warm afternoons and then crisp evenings. It is still to soon to pack away the summer wares which is also making the Halloween transitioning so hard, I like to move things out before moving things in and rearranging. Later today I'm taking the decorations out of storage and getting prepped to decorate. I have a few skeletons lying around to show you, and hopefully next week I'll have more to show.

I bought this piece at Ross last year and love the vintage washed look. I have it hung over the dining table in the living room {I threw out my couches that were so dingy one day and haven't replaced them so I put the table in there}. The art hangs on the wall throughout Thanksgiving as a reminder to be thankful to our ancestors who have provided instinct and culture in our lineage and have since past over.

One of the many projects I have my fingers on are these guys & gals. I used nail glue and nail jewels to add some sparkle to those desolate eye sockets. They may have whole outfits or just some Dia de Los Muertos flare. These skeletons come in a garland of four at the Dollar Tree.

 Heart jewels upside down make the perfect nose. This one has stars in his eyes and a gleam in his smile. Maybe it's those lovely set of hips near the fruit bowl that has his bones rattling.

 This season can be hectic so try not to become a basket case and lose your head. Whether it be pure Autumnal fun, Witchy, or scary Halloween bliss, enjoy what the season holds and remember magic is all around when your eyes and heart are open!

  1. Awww, your garland is super cute and creative! I also really love the wall plaque, the washed look is really nice.

  2. I love that art piece. "The eyes" are mesmerizing! So cute what you did with the skeletons! I've been out gardening again today. Just cleaning up. I do everything in sections, so hopefully it's a little easier. Now, I am working on the art piece for Magaly's party! Big Hugs!

  3. Hi Holly!
    I love the art from the witches calendar..I used the old ones to make helena a book of shadows, there was no way I was going to throw it out!
    I remember when you first showed that amazing art piece, its so gorgeous! I love that vintage look too.
    AWW,those little skellies are so cute with the jewels in there, gives them a gypsy-ish flair:)
    Thank you for sharing, Happy Haunted Humpday!

  4. You have a great skeleton collection and I'm always a fan of a good pun! Sorry for being so late, I hope you had a very Happy Haunted Humpday!

  5. The skeletons are delightful. I like how you added jewels for the eyes and nose. And the art hanging on the wall is a great idea as a reminder to be thankful to our ancestors who were here before us. Can't wait to see more of your Halloween goodies, Holly.

    love, ~Sheri

    1. by the way, that's a great pic of you and your husband on instagram. :)

  6. Spooky and lovely!
    Thank you for getting your gift to your recipient on time, it was wonderful <3

  7. I'm decorating a bit at a time... a pumpkin here, a black candle there, and my house is full of skeletons all year long, so I guess they are helping!

    I shan't talk about my bones. The bastards.

  8. Love this Halloween post! I have been so busy that I haven't really even got into the spirit of the season of Halloween. Thanks! Have a great week!
