Anne Marie's Halloween Home Tour, 2020

 

 

 

 

 

 Welcome to Debbie-Dabble Blog!!

 
I am so happy you decided to stop by!!

  I want to mention that since Blogger changed to a new format for posting, if you can click on each picture if you care to enlarge it...... 

Today, I have a special Treat for all of you!!!

My dear friend, Anne Marie, whose beautiful home I have shared for a few years at Christmas, has graciously sent me pictures of her Spooktacular Halloween Home since we will not be visiting each other this Fall/Halloween Season......

It was Anne Marie who inspired me to decorate my Dining Room for Halloween even though I had already passed on most of my decorations when our sons got older......

But first, I want to Thank, Naush, over at Doodle Buddies, for featuring my post, Gothic Halloween Dining Room Buffet and Curio, from last week's Meraki Link Party!!


Thanks so much, Naush!!!

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

Both of us like the more Gothic Black Halloween style.....

These first pictures are photos of  her Dining Room........

In this picture, you can see her back door through her Kitchen.....

  Yes, she has a stunning fire place in her Dining Room......

 
That gorgeous grandfather clock is something that her husband, Tony, wanted......
 
 
 
Looking through to the Living Room......

 This is her Dining Room Buffet......

 

 
 Anne Marie made this "wreath" by simply wrapping a black Boa around a picture frame!!
 

She saw it in a magazine!!

 I am totally in love with what she did with her mantel this year.......


 On the side of the fire place is one of her decorated Funeral Baskets that she has decorated for every Holiday!!!!



Another thing that she also got me into is decorating a Funeral Basket!!!

Isn't this fantastic!!!!!





 Anne Marie said that the coffin on the mantel is collapsible....
 
She always has a Tablescape set on her Dining Room table......
 

 

 This is her Fortune Teller's Display......

 

 

 

 

 

 Anne Marie made these candy apples!!!!

She bought faux green apples,took out the stems, mixed Modge Podge and red acrylic paint. 

Then painted them and put the twigs in as the stems.

 She also saw this in a magazine!!!!!

  I LOVE the way these came out!!!!!!

The other side of the table......

Another Funeral Basket.......

On top of an antique Victrola.....

Looking into the Living Room.......

 

 

 To the left of the TV Entertainment Center......

 

 On the Entertainment Center.....

 

 She gifted me these same darling figurines last year!!!

This beautiful organ is on the right side of the TV Entertainment Center.....

 

 Anne Marie saw this Figure on Halloween Haven with Granden Road

 Then found her on Oriental Trading for a less expensive price...... 

 

 On Grandin Road they call her Venetian Victoria.......
 
 On Oriental Trading they call her Mrs. Rot!

 LOL!!!!

Her stunning antique organ......


 

 

 

 

 

 

How cool is this??????

The other side of the room.......

 
In front of the window......

 Next to the chair......

 

 

 

 

An antique Side by Side......

Anne Marie calls this her Cat Display......

And another Funeral Basket......

Looking toward the front Foyer.......

 
An antique Hall Tree.........

 The entire display on the Hall Tree is done with antique and vintage Halloween items......

  The big Jack-o’-Lantern is called a Choir Boy....... 

 

 

  The costume and mask that’s on the seat of the hall tree is from the 30s or 40s....

 

 

The box that’s in the background on the seat is for the costume...

 

 You can see there are a couple celluloid pumpkins and noisemakers that are vintage....

 

 Anne Marie says that the antique costume came with the hood and mask and the arms have bat wings!




She said she added the black angel wings because "it just needed some thing on that side'!!

 In other areas in the Living Room......

 The trick-or-treat bags on the old typewriter are from a long time ago....

 

She found them when she cleaned out the pantry in her parent's home after they passed away.....

 


And of course, this little sweetie is the cutest Halloween decoration of them all!!!!


This is Anne Marie and Tony's absolutely precious Autumn!!!!!

She is a mini poodle in case you are wondering!!!
