Be Inspired #161: What's Black and White and Spooky all Over?


Hi Everyone and Welcome to
Be Inspired
where you can find more inspiration than you can shake a bone at!


Even though I don't decorate much for the spooky side of Fall, I DO appreciate a well placed skeleton or bat all the way to a full-on home transformation. I've known Alaina since she started her blog, and one thing we know about her is that she loves the "Spookification" factor of Halloween. She's been busy putting last minute touches on the fun, so please run by Arbor House Lane and see what's happening!





Don't you love the eyeballs on the platters?



Thanks Alaina for sharing all the fun!



Shirley at Houspitality Designs has such a wonderful comfortable porch. She has so many elements I love; cozy furniture, pillows and a beautiful display of pumpkins and mums. I could relax here all day! 




Aimee's Vanity Reveal at Refresh Renew,
where this gorgeous Chandy and Mirror really do bring new life to the space.




Sarah from Church Street Designs shows us how to create colorful Fall leaves from coffee filters, and then puts together a wonderful Coffee Filter Autumn Tree. This would be a project the kiddos could get involved with, So pretty, and perfect for Thanksgiving too!




I love this vintage Dish Garden from Patti at Ivy and Elephants.
Herbs and Ironstone work perfectly together.



This is such a great idea!
Quilled Paper Skull and tutorial from Christy at 
Confessions of a Serial Do It Yourselfer




Halloween Tree with Vintage Graphic Cards
(LOVE them, And that great mirrored chest!)
from Melinda at The Refeathered Roost



Mary's Skeletini and Dipped Apples



Mary is one of the most creative gals around, I'd love to get to know her in person, anyone who can put those eyes on an apple, naturally would have to be a hoot!



Hope you'll join in for the party, 


xoxo,

  1. While I was waiting fro your party link up I went through your home tour and just wanted to let you know how much I like your house ~ especially your charming kitchen! We have only been in our new home in Texas for a couple of months and I am working on making the kitchen more of my own. Some of your decorating ideas have really inspired me. Thanks for the inspiration and thanks for the party.

    Big Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley
