Halloween Mantel

Yes, indeed I changed up my mantel once again.  
I loved the Fall one, and certainly will go back to it after Halloween.  Who knows I may even change it up a bit more!
I only have two more Halloween posts after this peeps, so bare with me OK?
Thank you~

I bought this banner at Marshalls recently. It was only $6.99, no brainer, SOLD!

Mike and I went to a yard sale the other day up the street.  His idea, can you believe it?
I bought this silver ice bucket for $2.00!

My little dollar tree silver skulls, and you can see a little mouse there too!

I loved this little witch I bought last year at Marshalls, can you tell I love that place?
Those colorful spiders or ants, Marshalls too!

I love my new is so cozy and warm.  {Walmart}

Stupid clock has to get in my way...shhhh...don't tell Mike I said that!

Not too spooky this year, just enough to get the gist!

Here is a peek at something Mike bought at the Garage sale...
I could not believe he wanted this thing...

It was a wine rack I guess used in a restaurant....Mike really liked of course the Man gets what he wants.

It actually looks pretty good in person.  He placed his favorite beer bottles that he collects, and we threw in some old books, and conversation pieces.

He loved the lock, and he said that is what attracted him...

It's definitely different.

Thanks for stopping over and your sweet comments.

I love how your mantel is recessed - adds such character!
You have some great Halloween decor too - the huge chain is too funny!!
I love that you give Mike a little decorating say so - I try to do that to...and then there are some things that you just have to stop in it's tracks!!! I think his newest purchase is neat.

Hey, Debbie! You are so creative! Love the way your mantle turned out! I wish I had the incentive to switch mine up a bit more often. It tends to stay the same way too long. :)
