It has been a little slow on my blog this week but I was able to do a quick post on the kitchen progress.

You may have missed the post about New Upholstery for our french chairs.

Debra at Common Ground announced last week that she will no longer be co-hosting the Share Your Style party.  She will be greatly missed but I hope she and her hubby have a wonderful time traveling.  Not to can still link up to the party at No Minimalist Here or any of the other six host.

Thanks to everyone that joined the party last week and remember if you link to any of the host it will be seen on all seven blogs!

A Haunted Halloween {Stair Parlor}

One of my favorite rooms to decorate seasonally is the stair parlor, the room at the base of the stairs. The stair parlor is a room that everyone passes through and houses my favorite antique find, a clock table set on a draftsman table base.

I used the deer antler arrangement by Dunn & Sonnier and added Halloween-inspired touches to it. I love the dark greenish-black leaves on the white aspen branches.

A glittered hand, a cast iron spider, and wasp nests fill the base of the arrangement. A glittered chain and black crows complete the haunted vignette.

On the table, I love to use stacked decorating books. The crowned skull, skull & crossbones votive, spooky hologram all increase the spooktacular fun.

I adore vintage bottles and magnifying glasses. I incorporate them in my decor seasonally, and they work so well during this spooky season.

In the niches, I filled the apothecary jars with skulls along with a glittered hand and chain.

A Haunted Halloween {Parlor Mantle}

With each passing season, the parlor mantle is one of my favorite places to transform.

I am having so much fun using the vintage double-pan scale.

This year, the lower mantle features a vintage microscope that I purchased from an antique shoppe in Carmel, IN. I added one of the preserved insect specimens to the slide. As a science educator, I adore vintage science-type equipment. 

A trophy cup filled with pheasant and peacock feathers and a framed creepy hologram photo add to the Halloween spirit.

On the scale I added a foiled pumpkin, a silvered skull dressed with a fancy chapeaux, and a glittered hand. 

A vintage kodak box camera adds to the vintage Halloween flair.

Vintage leather-bound books add to the vignette.

At the base of the mantle, the large clam shell hold glittered hands, glittered chains, and eyeball orbs. Spooky fun!

The upper mantle shelf features two new prints. More later....
