Halloween 2010

I'm a bit late to post this as my 2010 Halloween tablescape but I was sick this past week so didn't get it finished in time.  I hope you'll humour 
me and take a look now.


The Witching Hour has begun.....

You can feel the terror building...

The Ravens are escaping...
The Dead are screaming....

...and howling

Can you hear them?

Spiders are crawling....

All is not well...

Do you have goosebumps yet?

Step by step,  the foreboding intensifies....


The Owls' lonely hoot echoes throughout...

Their all-knowing eyes see right through you...
The candle flickers...

All are on guard...
Waiting....

and watching...

She can't be far away.....

For it is Her hour to shine....
AAAHHH! Run for your lives!  The Witch has finally arrived and Her evil ways have already transformed the place!

Thanks for playing along!
Be sure to head on over to check out some 
more "civilized" table settings!

Debbie said...

I'm grinning. Not only is the tablescape very creative, but your narration was fun too. I love the "big entrance" of the witch at the end.

Glad you decided to post it. This was really imaginative. Great job!

Melissa Miller said...

WOW! You made scary look elegant. Amazing job! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my tour.
The raven is precious.

Oooooh, I'm skeeeeeeered! ;-)

I can tell you really had fun with this one, and I am in love with your little pumpkin tureens. They are SO cute. Love the ravens and the iron bird cage, too. Spiders love me so I'm not loving on them right about now. LOL! I have a bite on my leg that is angry and red.

Fun tablescape. Thanks for sharing.

Happy Tablescape Thursday...

XO,

Sheila :-)

It's never too late to share a Halloween table! Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment on my Game Tablescape! I loved having you over, and hope you can find time to come back sometime! Sandi

Maria said...

What a fantastic tablescape! What I like best about it is that you can peel away all the Halloweeny decorations and it would still be stunning!

Stephiejo@Inside the Barbie Craft Room said...

Oh my goodness, I love everything about this table! Such fun little trinkets~and a great sense of humor to boot! :-)

Barbara said...

I just love the spooky elegance of this table. You did a wonderful job of combining a beautiful table with a feel for the holiday. I hope you are feeling much better!

Dreamgoddess said...

DD, your table is FABULOUS! So many little details! I need to go back and study the pictures a little more. I'm sure there are alot of things I missed the first time.

T. H. Pellegrino said...

Wonderful as usual. But I have a question. Your pics always have a good goldenish light and don't have that overexposed glare. Are you using special lighting ? What camera are you using.

Kathleen said...

DD I hope you are feeling better. I am sick of being sick! 3 weeks of this cough, very tiring!
That is one scary table! Beautiful, but scary!
Love all the attention to detail, the clock, the cage, the story! Just wonderful!
