A Teeny Little Halloween in my Home

Thought I would show you
my attemp to decorated a teeny little bit for Halloween
in my home.

It´s hard to find Halloween decoration stuff over here
so my collection is really small so far.
I did manage to find a few white pumpkins this year

So this is how it looks like when you enter through my door.
We have a very small hallway so there´s only  room for a
small sideboard.

further on - in the next little 'hall' I have an old
chest of drawers inherited from our great grandmother
I have put my large cloches on that one with
a wonderful fabric pumpkin underneath.
It would have looked so much nicer if the chest of drawers
had been painted white - think I might concider that

This is my diningroom table.
A few more of the white pumpkins

and a little spooky decoration in my recent cloch.

This isn´t really a Halloween thingy is it? - just though I would add something black in this one.
told you.... I don´t have that much decoration yet :-)
It looks really pretty on an old brass table also inherited.

My work table in my studio.
We found an old wooden box used for dried raisins
at my MILs, and I though it would look pretty on my table
to display different stuff. 

now displaying one of my own creations.

I´m still hunting
and hope to add more to my collection for next year.

 Thank you so much for visiting today
and wishing all of you, my wonderful blogging friends
a wonderful day

Tina ♥♥♥

Hi Tina! You have some cute Halloween stuff going on! I don't have much Halloween decor either, just more fall oriented. I have picked up a few black and white signs recently.

Have a great day!!

I love your halloween decor. We have the same problem in the UK. A lot of what we do have are a bit cheapy looking. I am trying to be more halloweeny this year, hugs Sara

I think the "little" things you do have for Halloween look very nice and they are beautiful too (I like the white on white look). I grew up in Sweden as a child and there they had no Halloween then, but now living in Canada, its all over the place. But you really need to look to find nice things for it (there is ton of tacky and cheap looking stuff)... what you have done, love it!!!

TINA...I LOVE and ADORE all of your decorations. They look like they stepped out of a victorian old timey Halloween. Great job!!


Stop by my shoppe sometimes and see my whimsical characters..they love for folks to come visit.

Tina, you have a lovely collection of Halloween crafts, given their scarcity in your neck of the woods. I haven't even had the time to decorate our home yet. I'm always late!
Have a wonderful day!

I like your beautiful, understated Halloween decorations! They are tasteful and don't scream at you, they just gently invite you to look at them and admire them. I love the last piece, yoru own creation.

Hi, dear Tina, Your Halloween decorations looks wonderful. I think the handmade items are prettier anyways than most of the things you can buy in the regular stores. Additionally you have fun creating them.
Have a great afternoon!
Big hugs to you,

Tina, it all looks wonderful. Just that touch of black: fabulous! Since it's hard to find Halloween decor over there...guess you just have the "tough job" of making it yourself! ;-) Much more fun that way!
Hugs, Diane

You did Halloween!! They don't celebrate Halloween in Denmark now do they? Not over here either, but with all of the gorgeous inspiration I get here on the internet I am tempted too.
Your Halloween decor looks lovely.

Dear Sweet Tina,

I am enjoying catching up on your posts! You and your blog are so beautiful! Your Halloween decorations are lovely! I love all of your sweet vignettes! Oh, I see your precious and sweet little Teddy Bears nestled in the old wooden box. I love that whole vignette! You have a wonderful eye for decorating and you know I love your beautiful creations too! I think you have a wonderful Halloween collection! You have inspired me!

I am so glad you are enjoying nice fall weather. The photos of the forest are so beautiful! I love the mushrooms and moss! The beach is beautiful too! So glad it was a nice trip! I love your gorgeous peat pots! They look so pretty! The cream laces and lovely images are perfect with the black. Your tags are beautiful. I love everything you create! :) I am going to comment on another post so I don't take up so much room!

Have a beautiful day sweet friend!
Love, Paula

I love the way your Halloween decorations look. You have got a good start and a great eye!
My family in Germany has the same complaint,not such good Halloween stuff and lots of people don't get it.
It has gotton so big here in the US, that I think it is as big, if not bigger..decorating wise...,than Christmas. I also love all the white decorating {got every issue of Jeanne d'Arc magazine}, but I do like the natural wood in your entance foyer.
But you know that already from my blog, ha ha.
Love your home, love your creative spirit.
