*Boo* Y'all!

Pin It!
Happy Sunday, everyone ... it's going to be a gorgeous Fall day here in South Carolina ... hope you're enjoying fabulous weather, too!  I'm taking a break from my "magic trick" kitchen project, and thought I'd share our Fall mudroom.

This is our little space where I add a bit of Halloween, too.


Jax loves our little mice (bought last year at Michael's).  His art is displayed on the walls, too, which makes me smile:


Command central has a few Halloween guests, too:


Meet Beatrice, the good witch who sits perched on her stool, while a mice is about to be "Boo'd" in the background:


Isn't she cute?


A tray holds canisters of yummy treats (which have been dug into quite a bit!), along with Halloween rings and scary spiders for Jax and the neighborhood kiddos to take when they want:


The soffit is a mix of birds, raffia and pumpkins ... oh my!






A simple grapevine swag with big ol' bow hangs from our farmhouse chalkboard:


Picture wall with a few more Halloween accents:




Love the "folkish" pumpkin men I found last year at HomeGoods:


And, like my Halloween wall art?  It's actually a door mat I found at Dollar Tree that I simply attached to the wall with command strip tape:


Well, please say good-bye to Mr. Mouse who is heading back into his house, while I head back into the garage to continue my kitchen project!


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Come party with me at these fabulous parties:

Becca,
What an adorable Mudroom filled with so much Fall fun. I love the little mice, what a cute idea. Miss Beatrice is adorable and I love the canisters filled with yummy candy. Fabulous job, and who would have thought to use command strips to hang a cute fall mat on the wall, brilliant idea!! As always, well done! Enjoy the beautiful day! XO ~Liz

Becca, this is totally amazing. I am in awe of how you have even decorated the laundry room. The mice are all so cute as well as all the pumpkins and wall art. Miss Beatrice is absolutely the cutest. What a great find. Love it all. Hugs, Marty

How cute Becca! Your little guy must love all these tricks and treats. You are soooo good!

NanaDiana said...

Darling mudroom! I love the artwork by your kiddo! How cute is that! And, for a witch, Beatrice isn't bad looking...not too scary at all!

Tell the truth-how much of that candy did you eat as you were stocking those little glass containers? xo Diana

As I read, I started ticking off all the things I liked and the list got longer, and longer... lol
The witch IS cute. What a happy face =) The sprinkle of mice. The dollar tree wall art (smarty pants). It's all so perfectly festive.

Melissa Miller said...

It looks adorable and very scary Becca. He! I'll take a few tootsie rolls on my way out. :)

Love that little mouse :) Very cute! I feel like I've been decorating for ever for fall...now I 'm ready to take it all down and do christmas :)

Judy said...

Only you would have a mud room that looks this good! Love all the fall/halloween touches you added, especially the goodies! My laundry room is in serious need of a complete overhaul but it ain't gonna happen anytime soon. But when it does, I want to add beadboard on the walls.

Have a great week!
Judy

Adorable Becca, I love the room it self!!!The chalkboard is great and a wonderful touch. The treats show Southern hospitality…..I am always happy to serve food to people too and love to give away candles.(Iam from Charleston SC ….my partents are there). The mat on the wall is fabulous! Thank you as always, blessings to you.

Those mice are super cute, especially since they are temporary.

Shelia said...

Hi pretty Becca! Oh, I love your mudroom - 'mudroom' sounds so fancy! :)
Love all the beadboard and your fall and Halloween touches are just perfect. I scrolled down and saw your most gorgeous family room - it's so beautiful! Your mantle is so die for - well, swoon for. :)
Your home is so lovely and you certainly know how to put your decorator's touch to it.
Thanks fr popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Well, I did hear that it was a beautiful day..., unfortunately I was stuck inside in air condition all day freezing (even with 2 shirts and a coat)!!!

You create the most wonderful spaces. I wish my mud/laundry room looked as lovely as yours! I really like the black birds sitting on the pumpkins. I need to pick some up for next year. How do keep your "command central" all neat and organized so close to the wash and drier? The way I pack clothes into the washer/drier, the thing shakes all over!!! I would have papers flying everywhere. Ha ha

Want to know how obsessed I am with your home..... I couldn't help ask myself, "What did Becca do with the cute little plaid pillow that she had sitting on the bench last year?" Okay... just tell me to get a life!

Sunny Biggs said...

Love the little mice. I got them last year too. Your house is adorable and I love the wainscot you have all over your house.

I have a GIVEAWAY right now on my site that ends thursday for a black chandelier. Check it out!

I love your mudroom/laundry room! It is awesome and makes me want to redo mine or at least add some fall touches to it immediately! Wonderful room :-))

Honey at 2805 said...

Even you laundry rooms is perfect and decorated too! Very nice!

Cheri said...

Love the laundry/mudroom! We are renovating ours at this very time- and I need inspiration! This makes me want mine done!!! NOW!!!

Melissa Miller said...

Becca I accidently deleted our email from yesterday...I promise I'll show you soon. It seems like from what I can tell the prices are better. More home for the money so to speak which is a good thing. I'm not looking forward to the heat so much. I pretty much grew up there though so I'll get used to it again. :)

L said...

What a cute room! I'm looking forward to seeing what you have up your sleeve in the kitchen! ha-ha

At The Picket Fence said...

I love it Becca!! It looks so fun and festive and it must put a smile on your face everytime you walk through there...or do laundry! :-) You are reminding me that I need to get my rear in gear and work on my mudroom too. I love everything about yours!

Sandra said...

Becca, love the witch - she looks just like me! ;) The mice or like my daughter would say when she was little "mouses" are adorable!!

CosmoGirl Carla said...

Love it all! I am in awe of that DT door mat! I can't recall ever seeing anything that cool at my DT. As always thanks for sharing some "boo-tiful" inspiration ;o)

Zuni said...

Hi, Becca!! Thanks for visiting me and thus bringing me to your blog--where have I been that I haven't been following you?! I am now!! I looked through several of your posts--Love your creativity! One thing that caught my eye is the mirrored tables by your French doors and how the wood floor is reflected on them--cool! Lots of good stuff here! I'll be back!

How Cute!!! Love the mice and the witch and the pumpkin man and the display above the cabinets...oh me, I LOVE it ALL! :)

Jax's framed art is just precious! What a great idea!

Anita said...

What a wonderful mud/laundry room!! Mine is barely big enough to walk through and full of dishes and glassware. Looks like a fun room to do laundry in for sure!
