The first time I ever saw this idea was on Pinterest. Ummm, yes, I’m a terrible pin addict. I know I probably pin at least 5 pins a day. I’m thinkin’ it would be a good idea to take some of them off once I’ve completed them…I wonder, what do you do? I just love going to a place where I can see fabulous ideas and my own style organized in to one great spot. It gives me a sense of order in my life. Something I really need right now. Blah, blah, blah! On to the real reason for this post!
Here is the original picture my idea evolved from:
stinkin’ cute, huh?!
I have an affinity for witches…I’m my mother’s daughter, what can I say? It took me a few years to realize this draw I had that was compiling into quite a collection. My mother is the main reason I love Halloween. She always dresses up as a witch, if she dresses up, and is a lot of fun in her blacked out teeth and cackly laugh, thus, I believe, the tendency to decorate in and seek out witches. I don’t know at what point enough is enough, but I still don’t think I have a satisfactory stash.
Anyway, when I was creating this and gathering supplies, I was going completely off of memory of the above picture. One day I got busy, and this is what I came up with:
Our fireplace is DEFINITELY not like the pretty one above…by any means, I’m totally aware of that. But given what I have to work with until that project becomes priority around here, I decided that something was positively lacking. So-o-o, I wracked my brains to think of what might fill in that space. I really liked this other idea on my pinterest boards:
and was completely going for this look, originally.

But as my mind proves to function, other plans came into motion, and I made this sign:
I have to say that I’m overall pretty happy with my spooky (or not so spooky) Fireplace and mantel:
we can’t decide…
is the witch IN?
…or is the witch OUT?
She seems to be…

Oh, your version is so whimsical and fun. Nice job. Thanks for visiting me.
That is awesome!! Now I want to do that for Santa… Would it be wrong to buy a mantle set-up for this purpose only? The kids at school would love it!
