Halloween Decor

I framed a copy of this old nursery rhyme illustration with the blackbirds baked in a pie, and paired it with two birds that I spray-painted black:
And I decorated my wire tree with anything "Halloween-y" I could find - including the spiders that were supposed to be light covers. I got them last year and they never did work after I took them out of the brand-new package!
I got this great old mirror with it's definite "Haunted Mansion" vibe last year - so perfect for this holiday!
I have fun putting together my odd assortment of decorations. My favorites are the electric Jack-O-Lanterns that come on by themselves "mysteriously" every night (with help from the timer).

I love how the pumpkins look on the silver compotes! Great idea to put them all on a timer. Those witch shoes candle holders are darling!
