Our Civil War Costumes are Finished!

Happy Halloween!! I wanted to share pictures of how we decorated our house and also our costumes!

Our front porch is ready for fall with a new orange wreath, mums, and some pumpkins. I also planted some yellow pansies in our garden, and the deer haven't eaten then yet. Hurray!

When you come in the front door, I added some spooky art to our chalkboard. I found the design on Pinterest. 

I also rearranged our mantel for Fall. There are two new things: a red wire  thingy that goes over a candle, and a tall basket that is supposedly for catching fish. They were both under $10 each and I like that they go with the colors in the room. 

Our dining room cabinet is also spookified. I added some eyeballs in a jar, books with creepy titles, skulls, and other  thigs I found around the house. It's like a witches curio cabinet!

And now on to what you really want to see...our costumes! We went with a Gone With the Wind/Civil War theme this year. I made Scarlett O'Hara's curtain dress for me and a confederate soldier outfit for Alan. I hope you like them!!
