Here is a quick overview..I hope you enjoy!

I have been getting bits and parts for this over last couple years.

Covered window with black material & placed felt cut outs on...have strand of funky bright colored lights along window top....some skulls & books with cool skull covers and big Paper flowers on top shelf

I painted the mail catcher(will post in other board)...paintings are from my friend & her Mom....also the small bat painting is from swap a few years ago

This is one of the shelves on my bookcase...it is full of DOTD figures,skeletons,some candles & paper churches
 (You can kinda see the shelf under it that has skull plasma light,skully nutcrackers and some other misc items

Here is mirror I decorated

My friend made me this for my birthday....you can't see, but she wrapped skull tickers on thumbtacks...like 3 dozen of them.

The quote she wrote around the edges is
"The Darkness of Death is like the evening twilight; it makes all objects appear more Lovely to the Dying" Jean Paul(1763-1825)

Have pen cups, trash can,file boxes,& shelves in the bright colors as well but that stuff is plain (so far  Wink )

Hope you enjoyed!
