Let's talk about the easiest Halloween decor project ever. I always have these three plates hanging on my wall. At Halloween time, I grab a dry erase black marker and draw on the word Boo. A little embellishment and three minutes later, the room has a little extra holiday spirit!

Halloween Mantel

I've switched over from fall to Halloween decor. I'm not feeling very energetic about coming up with or creating new decorations this year, so I'm doing the same thing I did last year. (Click on the link to read the details about the parts of the vignette.) The only big change you might notice is the paint color on the wall. This picture shows the truest representation of the color. It's called Stormy Day.

That's what I'm in the middle of now: Painting walls and trim. That might explain my lack of energy toward craft projects currently. You may also notice that my piano bench bit the dust. I loved my pretty blue bench. I may try to resurrect it. We'll see.

I've also been playing with my camera and trying to learn how to capture light more accurately and more attractively. I've just never taken the time to learn it, and am finally taking a few minutes here and there to experiment.

I'm looking forward to wrapping up some projects around here and sharing them. Here's a sneak peek at what I've been doing in the hall bathroom.
