Lovely Gifts and Halloween Decorations

14 October 2010

Today I received some beautiful gifts from my lovely friend Sonja, a fellow beauty and style blogger!  Sonja won my 10K subscribers contest last year and has amazing style.  She sent me lots of gorgeous jewellery as well as a pretty pink Essence lipstick.  Sonja actually made most of the jewellery herself, the necklaces and two pairs of earrings without tags were handmade by her.  Thank you so much, Sonja!  You can check out her YouTube channel here.

I also got started on some of my Halloween decorating!  First off, I picked up some gourds at the farmers' market.  (Don't mind the sweet peppers, ha ha!)  

Here's how the gourds looked after I cleaned them up and put them in a bowl on the kitchen table!

I put one of the mini pumpkins on the windowsill in the living to the most delicious candy corn scented candle!!

I put the other one on the windowsill in the sun room along with a little wooden pumpkin decoration I got in TK Maxx and a light-up witchy decoration from Hanley's Garden Centre.

Finally, I hung my felt witchy garland at the kitchen window!  I love having my Halloween decorations where passers by can see them :)  I got this at TK Maxx (they have a lot of great stuff in their homeware section!).  I can't wait to pick up our big pumpkins with Jonathan and some more decorations at the Halloween store.

Have you decorated your house for Halloween?  Do you usually bother or do you go all out?  

Stay Stylish!


  1. I love your decorations!!! So cute.

    I hope you're having a great week beautiful!!!

    XOXO, CC

  2. It's a bit early yet for us.
    I will do some crafty stuff with the kids and decorate with what they make. They are only 2 and 3 so it might be a bit scruffy.
    We're going to paint some leaf shapes next week in Autumn colours. We'll move onto Halloween stuff nearer the time.
    I really like your gourds. And the garland too.

  3. Nice accesories! The kitchen window looks lovely!
    I don't know why but I'm not that into Halloween decorations..

  4. Cute!
    I actually just got my items out today, and bought two new things (that light up) today. I should have decorated October 1st, but oh well. I just made a blog post with pics:

  5. I got a pumpkin and drew my dog on it as a vampire, haha.

  6. Anna, this look wonderful!!!

    I am gearing up to host a Fall Par-tay this Saturday with friends and have been doing all my final cleaning, organizing and! :)

    Loving all that Sonja got you...lovely and oh so chic things, very sweet!
