A Halloween Display

Waiting for Brian to finish work last week, I stopped in to the Dollar Store to see what seasonal decorations they had.  I immediately was drawn to a section of crows.  After picking through their supply to find a couple with all surfaces covered by feathers and no huge glue blobs I had the inspiration for my Halloween decor!  I also picked up a pack of glitter pumpkins from target and moved around items I already had in the room and put my display together.  I love how you can see the reflection of the crows in the mirror making it appear there are more ............. Oh no, an invasion of birds a la Hitchcock!


In one corner I brought out my glass pumpkin and switched my pinwheels out of the striped vase for twigs from the yard with plastic spiders I glued on.  I also brought out a small ornate gold frame and filled it with a large plastic ant.


In the center I kept my ampersand with quail eggs but added one of my watchful crows.


To the right I stacked a few pumpkins and gourds under my glass cloche, with a spider perched on top. 


I stacked the cloche on a book of Edgar Allen Poe stories I found at the thrift store.  Another crow perched beside it .......... or maybe it's a Raven! 


Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary .....
