{ Vintage Witches Brew Halloween Tablescape }

Hey pals happy Thursday!! I hope your weeks been going smoothly  & you've  been enjoying October  & this fall season  thoroughly!! Today I'm  back with, CAN YOU GUESS??..more Halloween  inspiration!! Like who am I haha. Years of no Halloween  posts & now a few within  a week- crazy!! I'm  going to be honest, I still don't  like the gory bloody decor or too scary but the vintage witch stuff I actually  love. Weird fact about me? I love the Salem  Massachusetts  witch trial historical stuff. We actually  were going to go this year for vacation, but other obligations came up, but soon!! That was my going inspiration for this tablescape idea. I also wanted to share the new antique  table a little  too..The beat up wood top & black chippy paint couldn't  have made a better backdrop. Come see this look below.....



So for this look I used a bunch of things I had & borrowed  the rats from my gram ha! I zoomed over in the Jeep { thank gosh for my gram } & as she was handing them to me I literally freaked  out! I'm  DEATHLY  afraid of rats!!! She was laughing  her butt off at me hehehe. 

 


I wanted a very rustic vintage  authentic  witches brew look. Our table backdrop was perfect I just needed a few witchy  items! I used matches, purple spell bag, vintage spell books, spiders, rats & lots of vintage glass potion style bottles!!



No witches  house would be complete without a broomstick right? I hung this copper one from years ago on our barn dining  room  divider!


I think what brought this whole space together was the glow from the candles honestly! The warm spooky orangey glow right before  I put a spell on you hahaha...just kidding!

 

Recreate this Look: 

• Old black pot
• Few chunky white candle  sticks
• Black cat, rats, spiders etc.. { Dollar Tree}
• Numbers 
• Dark covered  book for spells
• Black greenery
• Few glass bottles or beakers. 

☆ Simply follow how I layed the items out & voila,  a spooky vintage  tablescape of your own.



What do you think about this Halloween  tablescape I created? I'm  not going to lie, those rats are creepy hehehe. I'm  off to take a hot bubble  bath & cozy in to watch Hocus Pocus...classic right?! 
• What's  your favorite  Halloween  movie?


Happy Wednesday!

{ New Cozy Fall Dining Room Shelf }

So I've  said this many of times before, but I literally  get the bug to decorate & then all bleep bleep breaks loose haha. Well, that's  kind of what happened  on Saturday ...Mark was helping a family member move & spotted a table { super old vintage  one} at the Salvation  Army for $30..Yup, it was coming home with us!! Once it got home, I  got the itch to redecorate  a tiny bit before Christmas starts...Crazy, right?! Anyways, I didn't  have time to go shopping, but thankfully  I  have a stockpile  I hadn't  used...& that's  where the shelf comes into play...ha. We've never had a shelf in the dining  room like this, so I'm  excited to get creative. Come see this simple neutral fall dining  shelves first  look below!

 

I used everything  I  had because  honestly I'm  already planning for  November  1st when I start Christmas  inspiration.  I love fall, but Christmas  is my favorite. I tend to get bored of pumpkins,  but not Christmas  ha. Anyways a simple baking sign, neutral  gourds & pumpkins & voila! I can't  wait to play around  with this shelf..I have a DIY to it coming SOON!!


 

I shot this whole post with the new Note 10+ & I'm  actually  surprised! It's  not much different  than my Note 8, but a lot easier & clearer.  

 

I'll  be leaving this shelf  natural wood grain for now. It looks so warm with the textured burlap  pumpkins..


 

I don't think this space could have came together any better. I snuck in a sneak peek of the table below too. More on that later!! Until the next post,  I hope you loved this one. I have 2 big DIY's  coming to this space, STAY TUNED!! 

• Sorry, the golden hour crept  up on me, so the photos  a bit dark above. 

HAPPY TUESDAY!

{ Best Target Dollar Spot Fall Decor }

Happy Monday! I wanted to pop on here quickly  today & share some finds from Target to add to your fall decor!! A few simple  essential items to add that cozy October  fall feel is all you need..A lot of these items are from the dollar  spot...which to me is a plus!! I chose to style them in our kitchen  window,  because I love keeping that area fresh & to be honest the dining  room was chaotic  with the new table  today..more on that later { I'm  so excited to share our $30 table} with you guys!! Anyways come gather some essential  fall item inspiration  in this cozy fresh little  kitchen window  of ours...



1. Wood Recipe Cards

 These cute apple & pumpkin pie wood hanging recipe cards were a whopping  $1 each. They're  cute, practical & super affordable!


2. Acorn  Spice Soap Set

These Mrs Meyers  soap set collections have become so popular  in the last five or so years. I started buying them because I  love the cozy clean look of them paired together  & they smell fresh!! This new acorn set is my favorite!! Perfect blend of spice...They're  less than $4 each too.

3. Cake stand holder

I chose to use this classic staples as a soap  /sink display, but it's  cute classic  & for $3 can be used anywhere  just about!


4. Mini White Pumpkins

These little  white pumpkins were also $1 each & I actually  got them last year..but I DID see similar ones this year. I like that they're  small & the brass stem gives a fresh but still modern cottage feel. I simply stuck them in the white gravy bowls with greenery. 

5. Candles

I was so excited to spot those black glass jar candles  with the cork tops in the dollar spot!! AND the best part?? They're  BONFIRE scented..eek!! It's  my favorite  scent but so hard to find..For $3 or $5 they're  so worth it. The chunky cork top adds warmth & the sleek black jar is perfect for any style! 



 

The simplest four items can add that much fall charm to any space this season isn't that great?!. Fresh clean scented soaps, mini pumpkins, cake stand  & some recipe  cards..Cozy at its  best!!
• Do you love the Target Dollar spot? What's  your favorite  fall item  this year?

{ Cozy Halloween Decor Inspiration }

Hey pals & welcome back to TQS! Sorry I've been a little mia since we got back from our northern Michigan anniversary getaway on Sunday! When we were driving home on Sunday I started to feel a cold coming on..Mark had the snuffles the day before but was okay { thankfully}, so I didn't think much of it. I should have known though, I always pick up what someone has 2fold...I'm glad I got it & not him, because he has no spleen from a bad accident years ago. Anyways by Monday I was really under the weather & couldn't hear out of my left ear. I immediately called for antibiotics as I already suffer from vertigo & didn't want to chance it...Well after all that I'm on the mend & ready to share some good ole spooky Halloween inspiration! Want to hear something crazy? I've been blogging for over 6 years & have only blogged 2 Halloween posts...TWO!! I'm honestly not into Halloween, but my readers are & why not try it. I blogged our fireplace HERE    & today I'm sharing some  looks from others' Halloween looks in different parts of their homes! I hope you enjoy...Don't get scared now....

{ Our 10th Year of Marriage }

Happy Thursday, pals!! Wow 10 y e a r s! I'm sitting here in the Jeep cozied in watching the fall colors on the trees while Mark's driving & reflecting on the past 12 years together & 10 married. It's been a wild time with so many ups & downs as well. We've been through so much from dealing loss of a parent/ family members, new family, adoptions, surgeries & just life .But together we're still here & much in love. 
I can remember this day 10 years ago & almost every detail down to putting on my dress & seeing Mark's face as I was walking down the isle! I thought it'd be fun to do a little "recap" about us..If you're interested♡


Fun FAQS About us:

We decided to have a little impromptu 10 year anniversary photoshoot up on Carp Lake in northern Michigan..Although so windy, we managed to pick some cute purple flowers..or maybe they were weeds ha. Another fun fact: Mark proposed on Christmas eve 2008 in front of my entire family under the Christmas tree! 


I would take 10 candid shots over staged any day.. Mark was trying to get me to laugh & he moved the chair back fast & I hysterically started laughing.. I mean he's the best blog hubby ever haha.


YES!! Hundred times over..I would always choose yes!.. Ask me again when he's bugging me haha just kidding!

 

Birch trees are one of my favorites & my aunts property was littered in them!! 

 

From meeting at age 9 { he lived next to my aunts best friend} to 16 meeting back up to 19 dating & 21 getting married, your arms are where I most feel content! I struggle with anxiety, but he can always calm my mind & soul. No marriage is perfect but I'd say we're pretty close. 


I hope you guys enjoyed this fun little flashback today with us & learned a little more about our silliness!! 

HAPPY THURSDAY

{ Easiest Pumpkin Display for Indoors or Outdoors }

Happy Tuesday pals & welcome back to TQS from northern Michigan!! If you've been following on my social media outlets you'd know we're up north celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary { September 26th }. We are so blessed to have a cottage in west Michigan to go & unwind, enjoy great food, lakes & antique!! We will be up here for 5.5 days & a few locations...One thing I've noticed is the abundance of pumpkins up here compared to the city or "down state". It got me thinking about how to share an EASY + AFFORDABLE & COZY way to display pumpkins both inside & out....Here's the simplest way:...Keep reading below!


BUCKET FULL OF PUMPKINS!

 

So, let me explain a little more in depth..I wanted to share something to display pumpkins for the season for any home or style & that's doable for both inside & outside!!

DISPLAY IDEAS:

.Baskets
.Galvanized Buckets
. Hampers
.Crocks
.Picnic Baskets
.Firewood pals


I chose to use this firewood pal because it added that vintage charm & fall feeling..Plus it fit quite a bit of pumpkins!!
I just piled in the larger faux cream ones & them staggered the smaller ones effortlessly!

 

INDOOR + OUTDOOR:


This pumpkin display idea can be used both indoors or outdoors on patios & porches. 
When using outdoors be sure to use faux plastic or real, not burlap or cotton/ fabrics!


I hope you loved this simple & mostly VERSATILE seasonal decor idea for your home! I'm sorry it's a bit short, I'm actually in the jeep way up in northern Michigan on my 10 year anniversary. Okay, off to enjoy!

HAPPY TUESDAY!

{ Keep your Mums Alive Easily }

It's that time of the year again where mums are popping up on every corner market stand, nursery & even the grocery stores!! If you've been a longtime TQS blog reader you'd know I'm not the greatest at keeping real plants alive..just being completely honest! This year while at our local nursery ~Steinkopf~ I talked to one of the young guys I always bug to help me when I need props & this year Mark urged me to ask him how to keep these mums going...SO GLAD I DID!! He gave me some super simple, but helpful tips & I had to share...


 

We picked up four mums this year! Simple, & at $8 a pop it was efficient too. We chose bold oranges & reds! 

 

1. Water every two days!

 Not too much, not too little.


2.  They LOVE sun! 

Keep them full of that sunny goodness.


3. Water Gently!

Broken stems will not come back on most mums as he stated. 

 

4. Cut off dead or broken stems!

Mum stems that are broke usually will not come back. 


 

I hope these super simple  tips help your fall mums flourish! I should mention these are the tips for outdoor mums in their original pots! Now, what's YOUR FAVORITE MUM COLOR??
