~ Happy Halloween ~ The Decorated House

By now you know that I love Halloween. A few years ago we sat in our home as a quick moving little cat 1 hurricane went over our city. Thankfully it was moving fast enough that it "only" caused tons of major damage and not quite the devastation we are seeing in the northeast of our beautiful country right now. It's tough to celebrate much of anything when you see others hurting. So I'll just post a quick little note to say Happy Halloween to you all.

A little close up of the white pumpkin which has been painted with Annie Sloan chalk paints, Old White and Pure White over that. The stem was made using paper clay. 

Because Beau Bunny and I both have a sweet spot for Snickers {No endorsement here, and we do consume in moderation only this time of year :) } This was totally a photo op. All candy had to be removed immediately so Bunny didn't eat it all. 

If you find it in your heart and and are able to help, please consider donating money or blood to the Red Cross, or to the Salvation Army or a Charity responding to  the needs of those affected by hurricane, superstorm Sandy.

See Y'All Soon~

  1. Hi Donna- I am back from my blogging break and loving to see your blog again. I have never seen paper clay? I am going to have to look this up-it makes very realistic looking stems! Happy Halloween to you, too- xo Diana

  2. Donna,
    Although "Mr. Ed" and I don't celebrate Halloween in the fashion that you do...I have truly enjoyed seeing all your decor!!! Amazing job, dear friend! I'm sure your "Trick Or Treaters" will be much more enthused when they arrive at your home than at mine. We do pass out candy and wish all who ring our bell safe wishes for the night! Thank you for sharing your creative talents with us!!!

  3. It's a truly beautiful pumpkin! How did you do the "C" on it.
    I don't know this paperclay either, it looks very cool. :)
    Thank you for sharing beautiful pictures.
    I'm new to your blog, butI'll definitely come back. :)
    Have a nice day.
