Loving this Dr. Jekyll’s Laboratory décor theme from Three Pixie Lane. The vintage photos with googol eyes are the best.

The Graphics Fairy {love} has a ton of great vintage Halloween clipart for all your spooky projects. Here are those eyes just mentioned.

The stylish DIYer, Kate at Centsational Girl, created the best mantel this season. Love the black & white color palette. Aren’t the chains great?

Favorite Halloween Drinks:

    Great finds! With no kids I guess hubby and I will just stay home and eat chili and pass out candy. Nothing too scary going on around here.

    Cristin,

    Love it and Halloween is becoming a bigger deal every year and more creative no doubt. I just amazed at the volume of consumption choices. It's not just for children it's for us bigger children at heart as well.
