THE RAVEN

But first, a little background to some of the items in the vignette. The door in the background along with the book came from my husband's grandparents home. The vintage sewing machine table belonged to my paternal grandmother. My husband's maternal grandmother was the owner of the typewriter.  She worked at the post office in our hometown. The eyeglasses were my great grandfather's. Finally, the pipe belonged to my husband's paternal grandfather and the pocket watch belonged to his maternal grandfather who owned a jewelry shop in our hometown.  Whew! That's a lot of background, huh?

"The Raven" is a popular Edgar Allan Poe piece which is often considered creepy and perfect for this bewitching time of year.  
The narrator is reading a book of forgotten lore in an attempt to forget his beloved, Lenore.  While reading, he hears a rapping at his window.
 Alas, it is a raven who says his name is Nevermore. When the narrator asks the raven when he will forget about his love or if he will join her in heaven, the answer is always,"NEVERMORE"!
 I made the wreath last year, for a display on a piece in our foyer. I fell in love with the round lantern when I saw it at Home Goods. The black Halloween tree was purchased years ago and for this vignette, a little moss was added to amp up its creepiness.  The banner was a find on Etsy. (If interested in the vendor please email me.)
I'm so excited to see that our weather is going to be much more autumnal than the past few weeks. I hope you have a beautiful (not creepy) week!

Think twice before you throw something away — it could be made into something even cooler. There are plenty of ways you can upcycle something old into something useful and entirely unrecognizable. Here are some of the best new uses for old things.
