Which Witch Is Witch??? Trixie & Dixie

It's time for Trixie and Dixie to take up residence here in Northeast Flordia. They decided to rent my house for All Hallow's Eve, and I am ok with that. So with that in mind, I transformed my house into a witch's retreat. I will share with you my mantle, featuring Trixie and Dixie. Hedwig the owl is Dixie's familar. Trixie's is a black cat named Binxs that I will show you later. A few spell books,(made by me) a few bottles of some interesting potions, an hour glass. Mr. Raven came to see Hedwig, they are old friends. Some purple twisted tree, and creppy cloth to finish the top. In front of the fireplace are tall candles sticks, accent with rafia and charms. Two pair of witch shoe stockings, and two purple vases and of course some more purple twisted tree in a silver vase draped with black creepy cloth.And that's the mantle. Stay tuned for more bewitching fun!

Fall Tablescapes....

Hello! I hope all of you are crafting away for Halloween, getting costumes and houses and goodies ready for All Hallows Eve. I thought I would share my fall tablescapes before I pack them away and bring out my "goodies" for Halloween! i will start with my formal dinning room. As you know this years fall colors were purple, butterscotch and leopard and since I changed my whole house, here's my dinning room.
Now I will show you table for two in the kitchen, where Hubbs & I share our meals. I like to make this place special. It's also done in purple and chocolate brown, and a splash of silver. I started with a chocolate brown satin table cloth. Then I put my bronze placemats and silver chargers, added my purple glass plates. Salad plates were silver, royal purple bowls complete the look. I added royal purple napkins and silver napkin rings. For my glasses I added my purple water glasses and wine goblets, and silver swirl silverware and crystal salt and pepper shakers. For my centerpiece I added brown candles on a purple dish then changed it to a silver urn with tassle, to finsh my look.

Think it's special enough? I just love the purple! So I am linking up to Metamorphosis Monday! :
