Thanksgiving Decorations

If you've been following me for any time at all, you know I love the fall.

The great colors.
The change in weather.
And if we're really lucky, rain!

I love the family & friend gatherings.
It's the beginning of the holiday season.

And of course decorating!

Seems like everyone is busy fixing up their home.
Getting ready for family visits.

Adding those finishing touches to their decor.

We've gotten some great items to help you finish up your table.

And great serving pieces.

Anything you need for yourself, or as a great hostess gift.

Wrapping up Halloween

Just a quick post to wrap up Halloween.  

We had such a great Halloween season, which culminated in the craziest Night of 1000 Pumpkins!

Here's some last shots of the stores.

Loved these Eyeball Lights!

And these wooden signs.

Hope your Halloween was fun!

Halloween at Re-Find Living, Part 2

We have been hurrying to unpack all of our Halloween items, and I think we're done!

I love this large marquis BOO sign, hanging inside a window, totally cute!

We've added to the pumpkin place cardholders with these black cat place card holders.   I'm putting one in my BOO bags for 2 neighbors.

These mini baskets are so detailed, I swear they're looking at me!

Love love love these jiggly wiggly metal pumpkins.

Re-stocked on our Halloween guest towels.

Have fun decorating!

Halloween at Re-find Living

Finished putting up all the Halloween items at our Auburn store.

This is the front table as soon as you walk in.

This is the large table filled up with all kinds of fun.

This is the front window, loved decorating the black trees!  (Looks better from the front)

Wall of pallet style signs.b took the swinging bench from outside & hung it inside.  
Skeleton needed to sit somewhere.....

This is under the swinging bench.

I think that's enough, come in to see more.

A little more of our Halloween Reveal at Not Too Shabby

Here's a few more pictures from our Reveal party last week.

This was the front table, set up for a colorful dinner party!  The pumpkins on the front table are so weightless they were the perfect choice to place on the chandelier.

We have a nice supply of these perfect chenille & velvet pumpkins.

I love these velvet pumpkin place card holders.

Stuffed a glass jar with Freaky Fabric & a doll head we doctored with Chalk Paint® Paris Gray & Chateau Gray.

And all of our yummy creepy treats fit beautifully on this 2-tier metal tray.

The girls froze green hands for our punch.....not real hands silly!

Thanks for hanging out!

Flag Dresser

Sometimes a piece of furniture is painted, waxed, and looks beautiful.....but doesn't find a home.  After trying various displays & changes, it's time to repaint or edit.  

We decided ( I decided) this was a great piece to paint a flag across.

Not just a flat flag either, one that looks like it's laying across the dresser.

Something that required more than just my talent....so Cara accepted the challenge. 

I think it turned out amazing!

All we need is knobs.....Painted wood that fit with-in the pattern?  (Cara will kill me). 
Painted Napoleonic Blue wood knobs with stars? 
Or, pretty Clear glass?  

What do you think?

Halloween Reveal 2015 at Not Too Shabby

Thirty-six Rubbermaid tubs, 9 people, 2 days later and we have our Halloween displays finished!  Thought I'd share some pictures before our party tonight.

We started with a new paint cabinet so I could fill the old cubby cabinet with Halloween.

Then we created the Hallween Feast table, and had the most fun decorating the chandelier.  

All our Halloween miniatures hanging off the copper tree.

We've got a nice selection of mini-clip-on with hats, spooky glasses, and headbands.

We had a lot of fun - thanks to everyone for all their hard work & support!

Ready to decorate?
