Welcome inside my home for Halloween...

Twenty something Bethany Lowe lanterns hang above the entry way of our home. Welcome!
Our kitty greeter was bought last year from www.gumps.com
another view, his jol is filled with candy which he cannot carry-too many sweets!
Another view from further away.
Where I spent most of my freetime-blogging!! Our little antique desk. I fell in love with it and bought it before Cheryl and I got married.
Many Hallmark Halloween ornaments hang, as well as, strings of colored raffia from our chandelier. This J.O.L. will stick his tongue out at you-we have the cat and skull also.
A little ghostie dangles.
A brighter view of the living room entry way.
A Costanza reproduction, candy, tin star with foliage, and those wonderful little trees.
A clearer photo.
Twinkle sitting all by herself. If O***N would give me a chance I would bid on her a friend!!
A set of three Hallmark votives from 2007 sit atop the back of our stove.
Minnie another ornament from Hallmark-the kids love the chandelier.
A witch ornament.
Krinkles witch on my wife's vanity.
Another view of the vanity.
Our china cabinet filled with Anthony Costanza originals, antique green glasses, and Leah HUmbertson's owls guarding on the top.
A view from the back looking to the front.
A collection of witches in the master bath.
Pumpkin men sit on a shelf in the master bath.
The large window in the master bath. Find the witch and bats at Micheal's and Martha Stewart.com
There is a whole lot of Halloween going on here, mainly in little vignettes, but here is a big sneak peek at what the house looks like right now. I hope you Laurie especially think that its a "Good Thing." Please keep in mind that I have three children under 3, so things get put up high at the moment. I will try to add captions and I may add some pictures already seen, but you can see them again...

You are a doll!!!!! Thank you for the peek, I knew it would be grande and you did not disappoint!!! You are very brave for having put out what you have with the little ones..I was a hands-on girl at that age and my mother can attest to me "loving" things too much in those very early years. I broke and lost things by taking them out of the house to show my friends. A collector at such a young age!! HA

Thank you again!!!!!
Laurie

Robert, I love seeing your halloween home.
I am a huge fan of paper lanterns and wish I'd thought of doing that too. I also adore what you've done with your chandelier.
