FEATHERED NEST FRIDAY


BOO!


I was inspired when I saw something similar to this somewhere
in blogland or a magazine and thought it was fantastic for
vintagey Halloween decor.
The little birdcage was a thrift store find a few years back
and it worked perfectly.


I made the banner out of luggage tags
Just cut them into triangles and tied them together
and stamped the letters.
Super quick & easy


Wrapping up my Halloween decorating this weekend
and then I just need to figure out what to dress up as this year.


Something spooky or something fun or ?
I never know what to dress up as... What are you going as this year?

  22. Cute crow! I agree, the black crow definitely gives a nice vintagey-flair for Halloween decor. ;-) Thank you for sharing my chunky basket pic! I am not sure if I like how I used the texture anymore with those photos.. a bit too strong for my taste - but I do LUV my new basket! Thanks for hosting.. I always enjoy looking through all this link party has to share.
