Black and White for Halloween, Elegant and Whimsical.

Halloween Decorating - Elegant Black and White - The Decorated House
As the cooler Fall weather finally reaches us, I usually get a burst of energy and a desire to get some projects done. This year we have been hard at work for a couple of months already. So it feels more like time to sit back with a good book or great movie. Although I'm not doing as much Halloween decorating this year, I have noticed there is no need to add pretend spider webs or dust to make things look scary. It feels like a layer of dust is on everything!

We're working on the den/family room. We found some damage in there, and I thought we should tear somethings apart before hiring anyone, so we would know exactly what we were going to be dealing with. Like the ol' days, it turned out to be the first step in just doing the work ourselves, even though I swore those days were gone. After the demolition, things have gone very well, slowly without rush, just getting it done. We have a lot to do yet. Somehow "re"modeling and working around older construction always takes twice as much effort and time. 

Now if I can just get a magic broom to go sweep up the dust bunnies, I think I could continue reading a good book and enjoy the show. I hope you are all enjoying your season of Autumn.

    Adorable post, dear friend!
    Adorable Halloween entry!
    I don't decorate for Halloween, but I had a 'tough' time convincing the 'spiders' of that!
    This past week it was Pat=#3 / Spiders=#0!
    A few windows were washed in this gorgeous cool Autumnal weather, as well!
    Here's wishing your re~model continues to move forward on an even note!
    Fondly,
    Pat
