black and boo...

Happy October everyone (and Happy Birthday Jodie)!! It is time to add a little black magic here to my nest which is just in time for Vintage Black Friday over at The French Cupboard. Before I give you a little peek at some of my Halloween decorations I wanted to show you this wonderful old mirror I got for my downstairs bathroom... It is made of plastic and I am not sure if it is that old but I just loved the detail...
Oh and remember the old soaps from this post...I finally brought home a few... Now I do not go all out for Halloween around my nest ~ I just add a few things here and there, like this invitation I found on Etsy... Look how wonderful... I also made a few of these little Halloween treat boxes... Take a look at her hat (hee hee)... Then I have these vintage silver coaster chalkboards... Those are just a few vintage inspired treasures that I will be playing with today as I join in on the fun over at Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday. (Wow ~ two great parties in one day!) I will do a post next week and show you how it all came together. Next week I am also going to put together a little giveaway because today is my 100th post! Time flies when you are having fun!! This blogging adventure just keeps getting better every day ~ thanks to all of you! Enjoy your weekend ~ xoxo!

Good Morning Sandi!
Your touches of Halloween are perfect. They add just enough "spook" to your house without going over the top. I really like your altered boxes (aren't old photos so much fun to alter) and I have some of those silver coasters so I think I need to get some chalkboard paint.
Have a wonderful weekend.

I love all of your Halloween goodies! oh it's my FAVORITE holiday and I'm so loving that invitation you found on Etsy!!!
Thank you for the birthday wishes on your blog...you are too sweet! :)
As for the coasters, that's a brilliant idea...I'm going to beg, borrow and steal that one. But don't worry...it won't be in the near future as I am waaaaay to busy! hahahahahaha

Very cute Halloween accents. I'm loving those coasters. I will have to make some of those. I enjoyed your other post on the campground and pumpkins. Brought back memories of me camping (in a trailer) when I was a kid.
