Happy October 1st!

1 Oct

Happy first day of October!  My favorite month of the year.  I love watching and feeling the city change; with more color and cooler weather.

October also means Halloween, and I have started to decorate.

I made the bats from black construction paper.

Simple spiders made from black construction paper as well.

I can’t have Halloween without my favorite gel window clings.

We replaced our Ikea flower lamp shade with a simple black chandelier for a more “dark” look, along with awesome 3D skeleton table mats from Target. I love to walk by the table and see the skeletons move along with me.

 Love these ghosts candles from Pottery Barn, which I will never actually light.

And of course you gotta add a little Halloween to the kitchen and…

the bathroom.

It took me all day of looking through items in my closet to find my skeleton shower curtain. I even made a help call to my mom to ensure that I really did pack them up from our move.  The bathroom stuff reminds me of my Halloween party a few years back, which is when I bought them.  I would love to have another party, but it wouldn’t be the same.

I even decorated our front door, hoping the others will follow.

The view from the courtyard outside our window.  You can see our flashing eyes in the window, pretty neat.

Today we participated in the Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure in Charlotte, N.C., more on the race tomorrow.
