Vintage Halloween in the shop


As promised…here are the pics from the other side of the large center island display. I think they turned out great considering I had to stand on a chair…lol. Have I ever mentioned that I am super short? Anyway…this side is all fun vintage inspired pieces I’ve been collecting.

These black cats are too cute to be scary…especially with their little hats on. I borrowed a little backdrop from the black wreath and pumpkin from the other side of the display.

These are my favorite with their big cheesy grins. Notice they are all carrying trick or treat buckets? lol

This is the new kid in the collection. I picked him up at Screams Ice Cream shop in Hell right around the corner from where we live. No kidding…there really is a Hell Michigan. And we only live like less than 10 minutes away lol. Insert jokes now….I don’t live in Hell…but I can see it from here hahahaha. Okay…not too funny…give me a break it’s 5 in the morning!

When I get back to the shop I’ll be loading up all this decor for the year. And trying to figure out how to run power to the center island for my large Christmas carousel. How’s that for a teaser??? LOL

Hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G

Halloween in the Shop


When we moved our shop to Dexter we gained a ton of space to display seasonal decor. I can not begin to tell you how happy this makes me!! My first holiday to decorate for is coming to an end….so before I take it all down and start decking the halls…I got a few shots of the spooktacular Halloween display. I also had myself a little fun with the photo effects : )

How do you decorate a shabby chic pink store for Halloween? White pumpkins of course! I layered this vignette with a large mirror in a silvery and antiqued frame. To get some height for my pumpkins I stacked them on some antique books with their covers removed. I added some black candle sticks and funky black wreaths. A few sunflower picks for pops of color. They came with those sweet little gourds on them : ) Win for me!!! I had a few pale ceramic pieces of skeletons so those went in the front. My dear friend Jane has been sneaking in the fun little tiny white pumpkins she grew in her garden : ) Thanks Jane!!!!

I draped the top of the mirror with a lace curtain to give it a vintage look. I’m calling this side my shabby chic pumpkin alter. The best part of the “foundation pieces I added…is that I can just leave them up there when I’m ready to switch out the decor to a different season. Who’s a smart decorator???? ME!!!

Edgar the raven has been perched in the bird cage on a stack of books…I left the door open in case he wants to fly away lol.

I played around with the effects on this pic until I had almost all the color out. Then added some text…I love how it turned out…pretty and spooky.

Okay….so that’s one side of my center island display…all shabby and pale….anchored with black accents. Tomorrow I’ll be sharing the other side of the display that I decked out all in vintage. Of course I’m pretty excited to start layering in the Christmas displays….so this will all be coming down next week. I’ve been working hard creating some really lovely decorations for my small white Christmas tree and I can’t wait to share them with you.
