Halloween Mantel-Spooky Fun

Enter if you dare! 
 Welcome to my spooky Halloween Mantel.
This weekend I had a distant cousin visit from across the country, who had never been to my house.  I had to explain to him that I just started my Halloween Mantel early and that this decor is not my usual!  We didn't want him to think we always live with skulls in a jar sitting around.
or eyeballs for that matter!
But we make an exception this time of year.  We even let a few Ravens hang out - I think they like watching football (that is for any Baltimore fans!)
Of course being a long time Cleveland Brown's fan, we are still working on a magic potion for a win.
This maybe key to turning our season around!
So somehow my spooky mantel turned into a football analogy!

So back to Halloween, I will be mixing up a little fun this season!
I hope you get your creep on!!

I am linking up to the following parties:

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.

  10. well this is awkward. bc i have my eyeballs in a jar displayed all the time. lol. just kidding. great vignette!

  11. I tried to go the spooky route with my mantel but WOW, skeleton heads in a jar! That's brave!!

  12. Heck, yes, I'm going to get my creep on! Not!!! :-) Hey...please send a few cases of that potion to us in Kansas City to get our Chiefs on track!!! I think our record is worse than that of the Browns this season. Hmmm...my husband is in Cleveland right now! His plane is laid over on the way back from Vermont. I'm headed out to pick him up soon. So you had to explain to your cousin, huh? Are you SURE this isn't how you really live? :-) We really live that way, except we keep all that stuff in the downstairs fridge! ;-) You did a great job with the mantel! I am not the best when it comes to dressing mantels at all. I wimp out. Yours is really well done with lots of layers and fun stuff. I love the hands around the eyeballs!!!! Really well done!

  13. I like your ravens and all the other stuff...creepy at night with the lights off?

  14. Stopping by to pin your mantel. There are lots out there, but yours is in the top as far as I'm concerned.
