Halloween In Black, White, And..........Red!



Since we have red accents in our house,
I found myself in a dilemma.
How to decorate for Halloween..............

I did not want to go out and buy new curtains
and pillows........
so here is what I did.....

I like crows, and since I already had quite a few
in my kitchen I thought .....
why not add more.



Well, they landed on our dining room chandelier,






in our entrance foyer - breakfast room -



even on an old book,
confering on the ledger,



and the most important crow.....
Crowella and little Hester took up residence
in our home.


Crowella's head was made from an old
black paper bag which was brown on the inside.
I fitted her on to an old dress form.
Her hat came from HomeGoods and was
actually a cone to hang.
The jacket is as antique.
I draped old tobacco netting around her
and of course a spider is her brooch at the waist.


Little Hester is an impish little pumpkin
girl, full of energy, vim and vigor,
keeping Crowella on her toes.
She is never without her little pet crow
named Caw-caw.



Even in the living room, crows have taken
up residence.




They keep watch over loved ones
no longer with us.


Right now Hepseba is gracing us with her
presence until she flies to another abode.

We will continue this trip next time
and this time there will be.......ORANGE too.

Everyone, have a happy Fall Season.
God bless,
Evi

Oh, I knew it would be wonderful!! I love all your crows. And you've made life-sized dolls also! The pumpkin arrangements on your dining room table and coffee table are beautiful.
