Halloween Vignette and The DIY Fall Festival

The DIY Fall Festival is one day early this week!

This week, since I moved the wingback chairs out of our 'mudroom/sitting room/whatever-I-want-it-to-be-this-week-room", I got to rearrange things again (see yesterday's post to see the transformation of this room). We don't decorate much for Halloween but I took what I had and decorated this room just a little.  It's not quite where I want it to be but it takes me a few days of rearranging to settle down and walk away satisfied plus I'm on the hunt for a settee of some sort for in here.  In the meantime...

vocabulary cards are a garage sale find
This room gets a lot of morning and afternoon sun (when there is sun shining), so it's a great spot for our plants. Sun = happy plants.  Normally and very fitting for Halloween, I have a black thumb but I've managed not to kill a few!
Nevermore Tree Tutorial, Obelisk is a .50 garage sale find.

When we bought our house:
