Loving this Sunday: Halloween style!

halloween mantel decoration

Oh I have found so many great Halloween stuff this past week. It got me all inspired to create things myself! In the Netherlands Halloween is not the big party that it is in the USA but more and more people are starting to love it. Next year I just have to host a great Halloween party. For now I just carve some pumpkins, make some bats and cook some Halloween style food. But inspiration is good, so this week’s loving this Sunday is all about Halloween!

First of all I wanted to show you this Halloween decorated mantel. I love mantels! I would love to have one in my home. We have a chimney, just not a mantel. But we will get there! I would love to decorate it with seasonal decorations. This one is from Candice Stringham.

DIY – Halloween decoration: bats!

DIY - Halloween decoration bats!

Halloween is not big in the Netherlands. It’s winning popularity but it’s still far from the holiday that’s known in America. I am loving it more and more. So I decided to create some¬†Halloween¬†decorations this year. The first things I made were these cute bats. I gave these away to a friend of mine but I’m planning to make a few more. Maybe some on a stick!

Why I didn’t post that much this week…

this week

Above you see a few pictures of my week. I wasn’t able to post much this week because of a little accident. I burned by arms and right hand by a burst of flame from my pretty fifties stove. Yes I still think it’s a pretty stove, I’m only a little bit afraid of it now. We don’t know yet why it happened. We think it might be that the oven was not completely turned off and had build up some gas inside. But we don’t know that for sure. I know that I was very lucky, it could have been a lot worse.

My boyfriend baked his first ever cookies in the oven this week, so it looks like the oven is fine. Of course we are very cautious when we turn it on. We have steps now for it:

Step one: Open the door of the oven.
Step two: Smell for gas.
Step three: If you don’t smell gas you can turn it on.

Of course I will be back posting new tutorials and stories as soon as I feel a little better! I think I also have some stuff for you that I allready made pictures of but didn’t post yet. So stay tuned! XO Wilma
