I am a Victorian Soul, who lives in a small townhouse that was built in the mid 1970's, not a huge Mega Mansion!! I just recently lost my Hubby Joe, who was a Retired Letter Carrier. I worked night shift as an RN on a Hospital based Rehabilitation( Physical Medicine) Unit for 37 years before I had Knee Replacement Surgery and officially Retired in 2019 after 41 years working in Direct Patient Care ... I am so glad that we retired at 62 years of age and got to spend that time together before he passed....I still do love Retirement!!!!

A Few More Halloween Projects


In this post, I will be sharing a few more of the Halloween items that I have been crafting......

But first, I want to Thank the Creative Team Hosts of the You're the Star Linky Party, Colleen over
at Butterfly in he Attic, and Darlene, over a Let It Shine, for choosing my post, "Under the Sea" Ornaments, Part 2, from the month of August's You're the Star Linky Party!!
Thanks so much, Colleen and Darlene and all the other hosts!!

Please stop by and link up to this wonderful month long party!!

In previous posts, I having been showing you what I have been making to create an Edgar Allen Poe "The Raven" themed display for my Dining Room Buffet for Halloween.................
I already shared the Potion Bottles that I made....
If you missed these posts......
 Click HERE........
 And HERE......

I also shared how I made potion books and framed some graphics......
Click HERE if you missed it.....

All of these will tie in nicely with this candelabra that I bought in Gabes for $2.99!!!
 And this typewriter that I bought in Marshall's for $14.99!!!
I also made a few more things........
These are a few things that I had and decided to re-purpose........
I forgot to take before photos .........

This was a clear glass fish bowl.......
I spray painted it a Metallic Silver.......

I then embellished it with a black curly type trim hat I had in my Craft stash........
And a black spider trim that I had bought in Dollar Tree.......

I decoupaged this graphic to the front of the jar......
Added silver trim, silver rhinestone like trim and a few diamond shaped gems.......
Up next is a silver clock that was broken........
I embellished it with the black spider trim, silver trim and rhinestone like trim.......
A bit of the black curly trim in the front.......
I set it to Midnight to go along with Poe's " Once upon a Midnight dreary..."
This little metal pumpkin was orange and I spray painted it black and embellished it with the same silver and rhinestone like trim.............
I used spray adhesive to adhere an aged paper to the inside to fill in the open space for the eyes, nose and mouth.......
I had this paper mache coffin that I bought a few years ago that I also spray painted black......
I found this great graphic on Google Images........
I decoupaged it to the coffin lid.......
I once again used the silver trim, rhinestone like trim and some gems to embellish it.......
When I display it, I plan on opening it up with a skeleton sitting up in the coffin!!
I made one more thing.......

I found this photo of Edgar Allen Poe online.......
I printed it out on paper that looked like it had been aged and put it on this frame that I spray painted black.........
And that completes all the Halloween crafts that I have been working on for this year.....
At least I think.......

Until I bring down all the Fall and Halloween decorations from the attic, and my mind starts "imagining" again and then who knows what I will be "dabbling" with!!

In upcoming posts, I will be sharing more of what our front and back yard looks like in September and what I have been doing to change things over for the Fall!!
And I am going to be taking you to Wegman's to show you what their Fall and Halloween merchandise looks like.........
  So I hope you will be back to visit again soon.......
