Pretty spooks and goblins

Meet my sister Iris

My sister loves Fall and Halloween, and enjoys decorating her home with little spooks and goblins. You will always find her decorating with her collection of vintage cards and retro decorations. Recently visiting her I asked if I could make photos and share with you, and she said yes! Here are a few of her favorite decorating ideas.

Love the ghost on the front door, not too scary!

Lots of pumpkins everywhere

Inside, the mantle holds a cat doll dressed as a witch
love the orange trees

Back patio holds ceramic pumpkins

And cats

She loves to carve pumpkins every year

Favorite Halloween cards displayed throughout 

Christopher Radko collectibles

  2. Oh what fun All Hallows Eve decorations and Jack O' Lanterns!
