 I found this on Etsy.  On the lid in lovely script (I should have taken a pic of it) it says "This is what happens to Fairies that don't believe in Witches.'
Since I don't have tiny ones to frighten (it's high on a shelf) I got a kick out of it. 
I just thought it was..funny.  So...am I bad? 
..and on the Autumn side of things..to think of tiny mice babies cozy in a nut shell...Ok..yes...I have a thing for tiny mice! 
(I have a feeling I'm not making any brownie points here! )
So anyway...
 ..scarey black cats...(wha! Pink flowers??) 
oh well..
 Skeleton heads...and pumpkins and a spell book there in the corner of the picture..
(sheesh..why didn't I think to take a picture of that??)
I DO love my fireplace this Halloween.
We found that old corral post out on the ranch and rescued it..and made a mantel out of it..
Oh..wait..I already told you about all that...and showed you the mantel.  
Didn't I? 
Well, shoot, I am plumb out of stuff to show you I guess.  How many days do we have left until Halloween? 
A road trip?  Naw...
Vacation time is over..and we took ours in the back yard...
Lets see...I don't cook that much...or anyway I would rather visit Joyce at October Farm...OH..wait that reminds me.. I DO HAVE something else to show you... :) Later..
I forgot..( I hate getting old!!) but maybe there's enough time to
join Marty's Table Top Tuesday  party..  love Marty's blog! 
Wishing you love,

  6. Wicked might work. You are wickedly fun, wickedly nice, and a wickedly great decorator. Keep up the good work.

  7. Hi Mona!
    LOVE the mantelpiece decor -- very pretty indeed. I'm jealous -- I haven't yet put so much as a pumpkin near my fireplace!

    But the best thing? The skeletal fairy. Oh my gosh, I laughed out loud.

    Wherever did you get it?

  8. Your halloween decorations are all so cute. I love the fairy and the skeleton under your cloche is so fun. Gorgeous mantel. Love it all. Thanks tons for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  9. What wonderful and scary decorations you have on your tables! Love them.
    Can you believe I haven't put any out yet???? Hugs and prayers. sandie

  10. You could show me your stuff a million times and I'd love it all over again! We could be Halloween buddies with all our decor...love the skull under glass...and a spell book? Super cool!

  11. Wicked by your Halloween decor! Love all the photos. Have a wonderful day! :)


  12. Your mantel is lovely. I had a chuckle about your fairy skeleton. Is that an orange ribbon on the black cat. I hope sometime you will show us something from your book of spells.

  13. This time of year we are allowed to get just a little bit wicked, wickedly fun that is!! I enjoyed all of your special Halloween touches!

  14. Love all your decorations, especially the mantel with the pretty little lights! And I honestly laughed out loud,reading about your memory, or lack thereof on some days...That is ME!! Thanks for sharing!

  15. I could think of many things to call you but wicked would not be one of them! I love little mice things too as long as they are not live little mice!

  16. Hi Mona! Everything looks great and scary! Your mantel is so pretty. You're making my head swell with your compliments! Keep em coming, I can take it! :)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
