Halloween Decor from PW

Pardon my absence from blogging.  I have been trying to get over pneumonia.  Little by little, I am getting better. I thought I would share some Halloween decor from a fabulous store,  Pottery World.

Glittered Skulls

See No Evil Skeleton



Thanks for visiting.  Have a wonderful week.

Glam Skullduggery

My husband and I first saw these black with gold skull plates at Zgallerie.  They have been on sale for awhile, so I thought they would look great with the gold goblets we bought.
I love black and gold together.  I guess this table connects visually with Jacqueline's Purple Chocolat Pirate Poison table.
She  is using the black and silver skull plates with her design

The table starts with this beautiful tablecloth from My Chair Covers.
I layered it with our gold glitzy placemats.

Gold flatware from Horchow. The golden goblets are Zgallerie.  We bought them months ago when they were on sale.

I used black chargers with the golden plates I also found at Zgallerie on clearance.
Then I added a black plate, another gold plate from Home Goods and then topped it off with the gold skull plates.

The centerpiece is a cake plate from Home Goods, topped off with a large skull from Ross.
The skull lights up.

The little skeletons are from the dollar store.  I spray painted gold.

There you have it.  A creepy but elegant skull table with golden highlights.

I did this table earlier....Just trying to find some energy to post it.  I am recovering from pneumonia.
Stay healthy and have a fab weekend. The butternut squash soup will have to wait until next week.

Autumn Decor

Just sharing some decor for the season....Warm colors, leaves and pumpkins makes our home cozy.
I try to change things up a bit every year.

Before the new ottoman...A nice coffee table, however we like to put our feet up.

Here's our new ottoman.  It arrived today, so we can finally put up our feet and be comfortable.

I decorated the porch with mums and scare crows this year.  Of course the pumpkins are also added, along with our pumpkin topiaries we made about three years ago.

Stay tuned for my Glam Black and Gold Skull tablescape and Butternut Squash soup recipe.
Oh, I almost forgot, we are working on our laundry room.  The previous cabinets we had in our kitchen, are now in the laundry room.  Probably another month, and we will be showing off the new look....Enjoy your week ahead.

Want Some Apple Cider Caramels?

It's that time of year when we are look forward to beautiful fall color.  Time for soups, casseroles and baking.  I have been wanting to make these lovely caramels for awhile now.

These are creamy and chewy treats that  will melt in your mouth.  They are different because of the added cider, cinnamon, allspice and cloves.
They will make lovely gifts or party favors.  I can see different possibilities...dipping them in chocolate  or ?

I wrapped them individually in parchment paper.

We bought this cute owl when we did our shopping at Pier1 recently.  Again, my husband picked it out.

Here's part of the slab of caramel before cutting.  I used a 13x9 baking pan.

Also, I am pleased to say, I am getting back into clogging again.  It's been awhile, so I have to get my feet dancing around again.
I am also going to a day of clogging at the Harvest Stomp next month with some friends.

Have a terrific week.  If you missed my  Wild Animal Tablescape, you can see it here.
Linking up with the following blogs:
