HALLOWEEN MANTEL

Halloween Mantel-Bargain Decorating with Laurie
Edgar Allan Poe has taken over our mantel for Halloween.  “Nevermore quoth the raven.”

That is a scary looking owl on top of the lantern.

I hope this Scottish Proverb will keep us safe.  I didn’t put shadows in these photos for effect.  It was an overcast day when I took these pictures.

And this raven, fully dressed in formal attire, is keeping the time.

I see the shadows of trick-or-treaters headed this way.  I hope the spookiness on the mantel doesn’t scare them away.

Yes, I change my mantel more than I change my hair style—a LOT more!  Thank you for visiting.  I hope our mantel didn’t frighten you away. 
 
I’m partying with Met Monday at Between Naps on the Porch, Inspire Me Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life, Tweak it Tuesday at Cozy Little House, and You’re Gonna Love It Tuesday at Kathe with an E.
