The China is Finished






Well it only took 24 hours, but it is finished. Actually it looks finished but I am sure I will rearrange it several times, take out a piece, add a piece, move a piece or two several times before the big event.





Unpacking this year has been a little bitter sweet, fond memories, gentle suprises when I come across something I forgot about or something new bought after the season, and sad when I come across something that didn't move well or hold up well in the new attic storage space vs the basement at the old house...


This is an older cabinet, and it is not lit inside, so I am going to also work on figuring out a way to light it up on the inside the night of... maybe little led lights perhaps hidden between the bottles. Notice Aldwyn found a friend too, I came across the little black owl that was the center of attention on the kitchen chandelier at the old house 2 years ago, TOTALLY forgot about him. And I added a lovely fuzzy spider to compliment the plaque "... and along came a spider"....


A little Bucky has taken up shop on the top shelf.... next to the "Blood of the Undead".







Bottom Shelf close up center. Glitter Skulls were from Target last year, on clearance... must admit I don't even remember buying them. The little Wooden "Boo" matches the "Trick or Treat" on the top shelf, both new additions this year.
