Our Halloween Decorations and I Won a Giveaway!

Canela over at the Cinnamon Sticks Blog is hosting an ultra Fabulous Giveaway and I won one of the daily prizes!! I'm so excited!! I won the Cherry Frosting Lip Balm (pictured above) from Vintage Bella . Of course, the odds were in my favor since I qualified for 4 entries ~ I blogged about the Giveaway, left a Blog Comment, follow the Cinnamon Sticks Blog and put the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway Button on my Blog.



This is the adorable Necklace that will be in the Grand Prize for the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway. It was designed by Rita over at Mammabellarte. Please make sure and visit the Cinnamon Sticks Boutique Blog to enter her Fabulous Giveaway ~ Day 3 will be on Monday.




I wanted to decorate our House for Halloween on the 1st of October. Guess when I actually decorated ~ yes, today the 18th of October is when I finally pulled out our Halloween Decorations. Since I'm rather late with everything ~ I just put a few things out.
The Painting above is rather large and looks even better in person. It was painted by Sylvia of Follow the Moon Art over on Ebay. There are so many details and I love the Witch and Black Cat walking through the Pumpkin Patch with the Haunted Houses in the Background.

This is another adorable painting by Sylvia where she painted on a thick piece of wood and it has a touch of glitter on it. I put this one in my Kitchen Window ~ seems that I spend most of my time in the Kitchen. No ~ I'm not cooking just watching TV in there. Maybe if we took the TV out of the Kitchen ~ I'd learn to cook..... probably not ~ I'd just spend more time in the Living Room.



Sylvia painted these pumpkins on a "salvaged" board and it looks so cute hanging on one of our doors.



This is Ghostly Mansion and it makes the perfect table centerpiece. Heather Goldminc is the Artist who designed this House Full of Ghosts. It's part of the Blue Sky Clayworks Collection. I also have about 6 smaller ghosts from this collection and I placed them around the house.




We put this large inflatable Tigger in our Yard every year. Last year someone tried to steal it ~ so I'm waiting until much closer to Halloween before we set it up. It's Tigger in his Vampire Costume and it lights up ~ so scary!!!

AND ~ Sew Gracious over on Etsy has some of her Halloween Totes on Sale. Isn't this Retro Halloween Tote "too cute"? All of her designs are "sew" adorable!!

YIPEEE ~ I'm SO glad you won!!!
I went up in the attic to pull down the halloween decor ~ then decided I didn't feel like crawling over all the boxes so gave up! So you are at least farther along than me! Maybe I'll move right on to Christmans~ LOL ;)

Yay...you won some fabulous things!
I won a couple of giveaways too that I need to post on my blog. Aren't giveaways so much fun?

You are doing better than me with the Halloween decorating this year. My husband pulled the bins out of the attic last month but I haven't decorated for Autumn or Halloween this year...ugh! There is always next year :)
Have a fabulous day!
