I have several beautiful glass bottles and decanters and I like to bring them out at Halloween. Last year I showed you how to make spooky spirits and potions using items you already have in your own kitchen. I decided to set them up in my beachy bookcase and make it look a bit like a creepy chemist lives here… my “apothecary” bookcase.
This whole thing got started because I was sent some really cool stickers and embellishments along with some Halloween Kits a few weeks ago. I wanted to use those cute stickers on my vintage decanters. (Note: they are from American Crafts and available exclusively at Target.)
Want to know what my potions and poisons are this year?
Yep, Gain floor cleaner (which I decided to try because of the color) cheap vanilla extract, red wine and water with peppercorns and pistachios floating in it.
The next shelf down has this Dollar Store skull, this moss that HH picked up for me in Santa Ynez and silver pumpkins. (And of course, lots of crows from the Dollar Store.)
I really like how it looks.
I still like my pumpkins in chains, too. I think Halloween is the most playful holiday when it comes to decorating.
What do you think?
