Spooky Sideboard and a Give Away Winner

I have my hallway sideboard done up with a touch of "Spookification". Just enough to be an itsy bit "weenish". I always have to apologize in advance for the photos because this is an inner hallway with no natural lighting. Sometimes I get ambitious and "clone" out the 80's monster doorbell, air vent, and the thermostat, but today what you see is what you get.




I'm still totally in love with my Pier 1 chalkboard that's all curvy and scrolly. It's sitting in front of my large paned window that's been here for a couple of years. They make a good backdrop for any Holiday or Season. My sis made the Boo Banner for me a couple of years ago, and gives just the right "fright factor". I know you're scared, huh?




I finally found a preserved boxwood wreath this Spring. I had wanted one last Christmas, but I refused to pay the big bucks prices they were asking for them. If there were deals, they were always sold out super fast. So when I found one for a good price I was thrilled. I just added some fun polka dot satin wired ribbon, then I'll just change out the ribbon and use it through the first of the year.







Since this is a sideboard and a sideboard is supposed to hold dishes, I always like to have some dishes and serving pieces sitting around appropriately. I'm using a little black wagon to hold the tureen, plates, silverware and napkins. And look who flew in...my baby snow owls and the owl collage I made earlier this Fall.



Hoooooo doesn't just love a baby snow owl?
...especially with glitter!




dead mouse and all.








I always love having something fun here to look at.
The turkeys are up next!


I promise I didn't forget about the Give Away winner.

  1. Debra,
    Gorgeous "Spooky" sideboard, dear friend!!!
    I love that you were able to find some large Sunflower heads!!!
    Ours were much smaller this year and the birds ate the seeds
    while the heads were still on the stems!!!
    Your "SNOW" owls are adorable!!!
    Thanks for sharing!!!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  13. I love this, Debra! Spooky, fun and not over the top. The owl print with the dead mouse is a little too realistic for me as we have spotted the real thing in my house, but it belongs in the vignette! LOVE the chalk board!

  24. so cute Debra!!! Love your boxwood wreath, and I am with you- I love them, but every time I see one I just can't pull the trigger. Even when they are at "discount" stores, I always think- this is still outrageous!!
    I didn't notice your door bell until you mentioned it, but maybe you could think of a creative way to disguise it with all of your good ideas ;) I'm sure there's a cute idea. (It's really not as awful as you think it is though- I just know a lot of us would love to hide ours!)
    Have a good day.

  40. Wow! I am loving your sideboard vignette! Every detail is so pretty and creatively done! I love the idea of using the wagon as a server and the owl paper craft frame is my favorite as well as the curved chalkboard! And yes, boxwood wreaths are so pricey but I'm loving yours on the window frame...looks perfect in your vignette! Thanks for sharing with us such a beautiful Halloween vignette:) Hugs, Poppy

  41. Oh...this display turned out so nice! I at first thought the chalkboard was the backboard to the buffet and then I realized it was the Pier 1 chalkboard. It looks fantastic in this spot. You know I never saw it in person. We were suppose to have at our store but I never found it. I never saw it again and it disappeared on the website. Sometimes we get a very small quantity of something in to see how it sells and if it sells fast...they order more. I'm wondering if these will show up again at some point? But even at that...it should have shown up by now. I think you were lucky to get it.

  42. It's all so beautiful! LOVE the banner that was gifted to you! Your vintage ironstone adds just the right touch too!

  43. Precious is the word to describe this vignette. Your little black wagon caught my eye with the pretty china and darling owls. I love your black clock for it fits perfectly with your design. The chalkboard from Pier 1 is lovely with all the curves. I posted an owl themed tablescape a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed seeing your owls. Have a fun fall week!
