Halloween is up!

The tree has a lot of the ornaments and lights while the bottles and books fill in the table!
Have to have swag and witches!
Candles, candies and pumpkins!
And some needlepoint on the wall, Hallowqueen and Double Double on the table. Forgot to take a photo of Broom Parking and Boo!

I cut each piece to fit the insert and also wrapped each side in Tulle to protect the beads.
