I really enjoy Halloween, probably because you can decorate for the holiday doing such goofy and silly things and somehow it all works. A perfect example of this are these ghosts.
I don't like grim and scary but I do like cute. And so all of my little ghost visitors are very, very cute...and not frightening at all.
Here is the original little ghost on the kitchen blackboard, I enjoyed him so much last year that this year I decided to add more ghosts throughout the house - in some unexpected places.
So I tucked another in the dining room mirror...
and two in the living room. One above the mantle...
and another above the credenza.
It is amazing how such a simple thing can bring me so much pleasure. Four little ghosts made out of white poster paper, total cost: $1.50. Time spent, about 20 minutes. I don't remember where I got the pattern, I think it was in a Martha Stewart magazine years ago. But it certainly wouldn't take much artistic talent to come up with one of your own.
Sometimes I can be very easy to please and as Martha always says, "That can be a good thing".
I hope you have some fun little visitors in your house this Halloween..
