Weekend Cuppa Tea: All Hallow’s Eve-spiration

Hello All! I love a warm cozy cuppa tea. Nothing quite like it to relax and refresh at the same time.

You know what else I love? Being inspired.

And every week I find a whole lot of new inspiration out there amongst all the talented bloggers that I follow or that I meet through link-ups.

Here are a few of my favourites from this week… Lots of awesome Halloween Inspiration out there – including a fabulous blog hop that you can link up to right here . So time to sit back and enjoy this week’s brew….

Talk about stinkin’ adorable… I must find the time to whip up some of these wood shim Halloween Mini Pallets by Mama’s Crafty Place… they are just too awesome! I can’t stop looking at them!!

This is one of THE most creative pumpkins ideas I have ever seen… Chalkboard Word Find Pumpkins!! by KariAnne at Thistlewood Farms…


I LOVE this fun Rustic Halloween vignette by Kelly over at Live Laugh Rowe… I have that exact OWL! And I love the way the rustic elements (like the wood slice) play off against the fun fresh colours of that adorable candy corn pompom garland.


Speaking of adorable Halloween ideas… what about this Not Too Spooky Front Door Decoration by Corey at Tiny Sidekick… so fun and perfect when you have little kids and don’t want something to creepy-gross-scary. Or maybe, like me, creepy-gross-scary actually scares you:)


Bats seem to have a strong presence in Halloween décor this year… along with candy corn. I love this no-sew bat pillow by Christine at the DIY Dreamer… so fast and easy and visually very simple and crisp.


Also visually simple and crisp is this super pretty white pumpkin wreath for Halloween by Katie at Upcycled Treasures… what a classic beauty!!


And once again canning rings show their fabu-lowso transformative abilities when made into this adorable Faux Aged Canning Ring Pumpkin! Wowza… seriously, how creative can those amazing gals at Lolly Jane get??


Soon I will be marching my Kindergarteners through a pumpkin patch so they can pick their own to take home and carve for Halloween…. I wonder if we will be greeted by a sign as adorable as this little U-Pick Pumpkins Sign whipped up by April at House by Hoff? I sure hope so…

Or maybe we will find a road sign to send us in the right direction… towards the perfect pumpkins and away from Boo St. and Frankenstein Rd.??? I hope so:)  I LOVE this awesome Chalkboard Sign Pole by Shayna at The Wood Grain Cottage.

  1. Hi Krista! Thanks so much for including my Not Spooky Door Decoration. I keep the creepy out of Halloween for my kids…but really I don’t like scary stuff either 🙂 My first giveaway just went live today! I’d love for you to come over and enter to win $50 to ElemenOPillows on Etsy!

    1. I think there is way too much inspiration and definitely not enough time Kelly. Sometimes I wish I didn’t need sleep (or at least not so much of it!!).
