Dining Room Decor

One of my projects for the weekend was to decorate the Dining Room for Halloween. First I hung an old tapestry on the wall. Then I put one of Grandma's table cloths on the buffet; crooked. Then I found a cheap urn at Target in the discount area, painted it black and stuck a bunch of dead (what else?) oak branches into it. I added black pumpkins, the sad girl bust, a Celtic cross, and candles that bleed. And crows in the branches, but I think we need more crows to be truly creepy.

Some one asked where I got this bust. I think I got it at Michaels last year along with the cross.

I also put a lovely bowl of fruit on the table....
