But, I decided I wanted a spookier look in the foyer, so I've moved the wreath to the kitchen door. It works better there, with the somewhat vintage vibe of the hutch.
And now, welcome to my Spooky Southern Foyer...
Please step carefully. You never know what might be lurking under the aging lace on the foyer chest.
Above the mirror, you'll see rare and exotic Black Magnolia leaves and Spanish moss, hanging from a black gnarled branch.
Our faithful, ever watchful crow...
... guards a small black casket on a silver tray (actually, it's a little antique snuff box)...
He's so vain...he loves to admire himself in the mirror..and he probably thinks this song is about him...
Oh, sorry, I couldn't help myself.
Look inside the casket...
...blood red Black Magnolia seeds!...extremely rare, because they only germinate on the first full moon in October (not really).
Perhaps you'd like to read a book before retiring for the night...hmm, I think the book ends look like tombstones.
For your reading pleasure, may I recommend Who Killed Aunt Maggie?, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil...or perhaps, Black Heart?
One of these skeleton keys will open a door at the top of the stairs. I hope you'll find your room suitable. ;)
...you retire upstairs. Sleep well...:) Wha-ha-haaa.
