I've been such a slacker lately with blogging! I fully expected to be posting much more regularly when we got internet hooked up at home a few months ago, but life has been crazy, and busy and stressful. From switching our son to a different daycare, doctor appointments, car trouble, and traveling, I think things are finally getting back to normal and I hope to be able to give my blog a little more attention.
This weekend I decided it was time to change up my mantle that I was totally in love with:
To something geared a little more towards fall and Halloween:
With the wood boxes, I was kind of going for the look of a collection of fall/Halloween curiosities. But, since I don't have any of the usual things you find in curiosity collections like animals skulls, bug specimens, etc., I thought I would use things still nature inspired, but a little less creepy.
My son, Anderson, and I collected leaves from outside to use as part of the display. He collected some for himself too. :)
This was the only skull I could find and I'm totally ok with the fact that it's fake...and plastic....and did I mention not creepy?
I still haven't bought any fun washi tape, so had to use scotch tape again to hang my leaves on the mirror. :/
Even my deer bust was adorned with a pretty leaf!
