Loving Halloween & as it is soon approaching I wanted to share some of my Halloween Decor..
Using this Amazing French Provincial Desk/Hutch Re-Finished in a Beautiful Black as a background Piece.
I added a Vintage Tin Pail , some Painted Black Birch Tree Branches with some mini pumpkins.
Placed some black crows and birds on the chandelier and frame for some added scare.
I made these cutie Coasters in Fun Halloween Patterns
Love My Black Fur Wreath, added One of my Favorite Accessories (Ribbon) in a Spooky Stripe.
I made these Little Mini Washcloths, Embroidering (Boo!) and adding some Darling Check Ribbon for an added touch.
In the Halloween Spirit, Historic Folsom Host a 2nd Saturday Art Walk each month, with a different Theme, As we are all still in the THICK of Construction/Revitalization the theme for October was
Walk the Plank -as many of us have wood/metal planks to our doors as they are building the sidewalks.
So Here are some of the Magnificent Pirates they hired to walk the street during the Event. They were so good, there was 7 total, after I closed shoppe, we walked around and kept running into them, My littlest one, just lost her front tooth, and the Pirate would refer to her as "There is the one with the Scurvy" and show his blackend out teeth, & ask if she wanted a kiss..
SO stinkin Cute...
Going on with the Halloween Post, I have shared pictures of this Amazing home before, this is my landlords Home (Mansion).
My daughter had to do a report on it, as it is a Historical Home here in Folsom.
Built in 1894, to the Cohn family,
who owned a shoppe here on Sutter St. for 70 Years.
Im sure you can tell i have this obsession with all that is OLD. Homes,Furniture,Clothing anything, even Stories..
So as we did research and picked my landlords brain, we found out that this home's first floor is built of granite blocks from the Sierra Nevada,
That Bats lingered & made homes in that Cupula Tower,
& that in those steps my little one is sitting on, the previous renters found a baby coffin, with baby skeletal remains, nobody knows how long they have been there or whose they were.
When we asked if there was ever any funny business, we were told, that sometimes they heard footsteps going up or down the stairs in the home..
This is the side view of this Wonderful Home.
