vintage linen and doily ghosts

After photographing the large and petite ghost toparies that I shared yesterday,
I had an “ooh!” moment and got out some vintage laundry.
I adore the shabbier version of my ghostly toparies
(or “ghostiaries” as my dear friend, Laurie at Heaven’s Walk calls them)!
I’m the lavender ghost on the right…
…because if I find myself in the unfortunate situation to need a sheet to haunt with,
you can bet I’ll be looking for something linen or lavender!
(I’d go with a doily but I might get a little chilly with all those holes.)
There was no way, no how, that I was going to paint on my linens,
especially on one of my favorite doilies (front and center) from my friend, Allison.
I used painted pushpins instead.
Sharing the full tutorial HERE.

Truth be told, I don’t think my “spooky” mantel and ghost decor would scare a flea.

But, I think they’d look oh so cute as place settings on a vintage chic tablescape.

Do you decorate for Halloween or just Autumn in general?

I’ll see you tonight for {air your laundry} Friday.
Thanks for reading.
