Welcome to Debbie-Dabble Blog!!
Click HERE to see the full Blog post from last year!!!!
After I had given away almost all of my Halloween decorations when the boys got older, it was Anne Marie that got me back into decorating for Halloween.....
I decided to keep the Living Room decorated for Fall but went all out for Halloween in our Dining Room....
All Thanks to Anne Marie who LOVES Halloween!!!
Before we start the Tour, I want to share the sweetest Trick or Treater of them all!!!!
Yes, that is Anne Marie and Tony's little dog, Autumn!!!!
She is on the mantel and is as still as can be!!!!
Anne Marie sent me a video of her where only her eyes are moving and she is so still!!!
Little Faye would be wrecking havoc on that mantel!!!
We will start the Tour by the front door.....
The Hall Tree
I am going to be using Anne Marie's descriptions of the pictures......
"This is a different vintage child’s Halloween costume than the one I had last year.
As you can see this one is half black half orange and there are pumpkins on it.""On the seat, the 3 JOL‘s are all papier-mâché in vintage..... the smallest one is actually a nut cup.
There is a hall along the stair case and this table is against the one wall.....
As you enter the Living Room, to the left is her antique Side by Side.....
"They’re in one of the areas on the side by side."
"The first picture are some figures like the ones I gave you."
Yes, Anne Marie gifted me 2 of these sweet figures!!!
"And the little
table in front of them is a girl candy container, vintage and she is in
a skeleton costume."
"The small cat next to her is made by Herman in Germany and it’s vintage.
And then of course I have to have one of my funeral baskets on the floor in front of both tables."
"Where the purple creepy crawler is, those are wool felted pumpkins that I bought a few years ago and forgot that I had them.
They’re in an antique bridal basket on the coffee table."
In the corner by the window is her magnificent Antique organ!!!!
"The single cats on either side of the organ are vintage Beistle."
"The cat garland on top is a reproduction of vintage Beistle"
" The cat that is on the organ seat you gave me!"
Yes, I gifted her the cat!!
To the left of the organ is the TV Entertainment Center....
"This is what I have in all the cubbies in my wall unit where the TV is"
"I gave my lamp lady a pumpkin to hold. It’s an earring!"
In front of the Entertainment Center is a crib filled with a few Halloween Bearington Bears.....
cat and the skeleton hand are on that little phone table I have that
the door opens on."
"The bucket I’ve had for a while and I honestly can’t remember the last time I put it out.
I just filled it with pumpkins and that cute little ghost bear that you gave me!"
I wonder how come I did not buy the same bear for myself!! LOL!
"This picture is a velvet pumpkin and a spider on a tombstone and a tiny little treat holder"
"This picture is just a vintage reproduction dummy board with a pumpkin on either side that I have on the table between the wall unit and a chair."
Now we go into the Dining Room.....
"The pumpkin with the party hat and the cat rattle are on top of the Victrola"
"A black popcorn cat and a card with a vintage Halloween image on it in the funeral basket in front of the grandfather clock"
Anne Marie gifted me the same cone.
"Another come that I have on the other side of the fireplace one side has the cat that you see, the other side has a witch face."
The Dining Room Fireplace.....
This is the top of the mantle.
"An orange cat that’s either a candy or nut cup....."
" There’s a Gurley candle, a noisemaker, the witch and black cat postcard from 1909 and a blow mold of the cat with the pumpkin on his back"
"The cat face that has the party horn
going across is actually called a witch whistle."
"The round Orange thing right behind him that has a picture of a cat on it is actually a party hat.
There’s a strap to go under your chin.
Next to the hat is a vintage piece Beistle band member
I only have the one, there should be 4.
And then in front of them is a vintage Halloween cracker.
I was in to honeycomb this year too.
Hence the pumpkin and two more vintage Beistle cats"
"The next two cats are Steiff.
I put the ribbons on them but one still has its original button on the ear.
The little one still has his original tag"
"The next cat face is a die cut and in front of him is another Halloween cracker."
"Then I have two black and orange honeycomb balls.
A noisemaker with a cat on it."
"A party cup, another cat noise maker, another postcard blue background with pumpkins and black cats that is also from 1910 and another Gurley candle"
"Lots of potion bottles."
The two fortune telling cards are postcards from 1909. You have to hold them up to a mirror to see the answer to the question"
The Dining Room Table......
"I did not set my dining room table as a tablescape.
I decided to do just
a pumpkin and mouse theme."
"A silver tray with the big skeleton mouse and a candle, couple little skeleton mice some spiders and some pumpkins."
"A spell book.
It opens and closes by itself and says three different spells."
"The fortuneteller game is from 1905 and has all its parts and the original instructions."
"Two of the shelves in the kitchen with some reproduction images of old postcards and of course the calendar that Debbie and I both have."
Stay safe, healthy and most of all, HAPPY!!
