Halloween Inspiration

I found these pics at one of my FAVORITE blogs: urbanfarmhouse.blogspot.com

I can tell you right now that sometime within the next month, I will be purchasing a mini-chalkboard, a silver scoop and a bunch of pumpkin/cinnamon/apple/spice/insert any other “Fall-themed Scent” here, potpourri- to throw together in a big, old doughbowl.

Which of these ideas appeal the most to YOU!


(And don’t forget- Wednesday is the last day to enter the MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION GIVEAWAY contest! You still have time to get in the game!)

    ooooooooh be still my heart. I love your inspiration pics – just yummy. I wish this dam* house would sell so i could pull out the halloween decor and go crazy. IS IT BAD TO TASTEFULLY DECORATE WHEN YOUR HOUSE IS LISTED? ;-(

    My heart lept over here when I saw the painted white dresser with all the girly white and black haloween decor. Whoa. Urban Farm House…. welcome home to Kara’s favorite blog list.

    I’m having so much fun reading everyone’s entry’s to your giveaway by the way :) They are lik taking a mini vacation. Last night on House Hunters international there was a couple purchasing an itallian farm house, and all I could think about were all our blog friends who had the same dream!

    Hmm, never thought to use my antique boots and shoes as Halloween props.. or any of my vintage clothes for that matter, weird huh!
    I want to make some pumpkin corn bread, sounds yummo!
    I like that rope looking web.
    I also thought Demons are a Ghoul’s Best Friend was cute!

    I need a store just so I can decorate….It’s like a sweet dream of mine. Nope… not about the money at all. I just wanna play! You know you can only go so far with your own house. I pray my cable doesnt go out cause if it does and he has to come inside he may just think Im crazy. I always use that ole back up trick… dont mind all the early decorations… Im getting ready for a party. You think anyone would buy it? I do want to have a pokeno party just so I can have a good reason to add more stuff….. It’s fun to be a girl!
