The Not So Big Unveiling.

Told ya I was big into thee ole mantel changeup, right?

And you remember the "spooky" candles I was working on weeks ago, right?

I'm happy to report that we did not burn the house down.

Anyway, throw in an old shutter with this mantel decor, some old nersty looking cheesecloth, one of those artsy fartsy (more on the fartsy side) banners y'all make, some more crap, and
ta da.

My Halloweenie mantel changeup. All free, baby. And all craptacular.

And then, I had this great idea for a sign my kitchen:

(no I don't need two; I gave one away)
'Tis my trademark kitchen quote. Really, it is.

Um, so have I mentioned I like Halloween?

Way to not burn down the house or have people die in your kitchen *thumbs up*

Two awesome projects, as always :)

It is craptacular at it's finest! The candles turned out great and love the old shutter idea behind everything. Glad nobody's dying in your kitchen!

I love that you love Halloween. I thought liked it until I met you, now I realize that I just have halloween.

BTW- You looked spectacular in your LaFleur costume. I don't care if some people don't get it. It is totally cool.

Your spooky candles turned out great and your artsy fartsy banner is divine! Very spooky chic! Thanks for linking up :).

I love it! I also love your kitchen motto. Mine is "Oh your hungry?....Too bad go to bed!"

Love your guts

That mantle is totally rockin' a creepy vibe. I'm inspired to actually haul out me decorations now!

Also, have to say, I can't remember how I found your blog, but it's freaking.awesome. You're hilarious! I'm in awe that you can get so much fantastic projects accomplished, and wrangle a pack of kids. Seriously, in awe.
I can barely handle three dogs and a get a pot painted. Mind tossing some of that energy over here?
