I've never done a Halloween-themed mantle before, but here again I was inspired by Pinterest and the "Pin it and do it" challenge for October.
My version includes a black feather tree, a transferware plate from Disneyland's Haunted Mansion (thanks to a very dear friend who sent me a set!) some needlework and pumpkins. On the small chairs below are some wool pillow I made a few years ago.
Halloween is proving to be challenging calorically. I've made another batch of the whole wheat pumpkin spice latte muffins I mentioned in the last post. And tragically for my waistline, I've discovered candy corn flavored m&ms. I wish I'd never tried them because they're just ridiculously good.
While doing some stitching a few days ago I watched "Blithe Spirit." What a great Halloween-ish movie. Haven't seen it in years. It's a Noel Coward play directed by David Lean, featuring a young handsome Rex Harrison. I just love it.
I have a stack of movies waiting next to my television for us to sit down and watch. We barely have time to sit together these days. I might have to finish a few more Halloween movies on my own this week while I sew. Do you have any favorites you love to watch this time of year?
