Indoor Halloween

I LOVE Halloween! Seriously, more than Christmas…is this wierd?  It is such a fun Holiday and all ages can have fun with it. I really love spooky decorations, the scarier the better! 
Alas, I have not been able to decorate that way this year since our house IS STILL ON THE MARKET!!! Which is really starting to upset me, probably more so than most.  I thought my house would show well and sell quickly.  I feel like my decorating style is tasteful and I keep my house clean, really clean.  I just knew it was going to sell quick, oh how wrong I was.  Now we are over the average days on the market for our area and honestly it makes me sick!  Especially when none of the feedback has really been bad on any of the showings.  I guess that should make me feel better but it doesn’t at all because it has not sold yet and I don’t know what to do to make it better.  To make matters worse the new house will be done by the end of the month and we need one of them to sell!
Thanks for letting me rant! :)
Back to the regularly scheduled topic…
I used a lot more pumpkins and Fall decor this year on the inside, more orange, less black. 
IMG_6101  This is our kitchen table.  I picked up these guys at the Raleigh Farmer’s Market.  The garland I’ve had for a while.
IMG_6104 This little display is in our Foyer.  I also picked up these tiger pumpkins at the Farmer’s Market.  I placed black sand in the bottom of a cake stand and just stuck the pumpkins on top.
IMG_6047 These are in my Dining Room.  Little fake pumpkins, the larger two have Rub n Buff on them in Antique Gold and the other two were purchased with the beading on them.
IMG_6051 My one scary Owl in the Living Room.  This is a candle I picked up a TJ Maxx this year.
IMG_6055 This is my Mantle decor.  Again, small pumpkins (all fake) with a few spiders from the Pottery Barn.

I will leave you with my great graveyard pictures from my trip to Charleston this Summer.  I had planned to print these and put them in black frames just for Halloween.  But I just ran out time to get it done.
