I thought I was pretty much done with Halloween decor for the inside, but Hubby and the Little Man went shopping and brought home a skull, among other things. What is it with men and skulls, anyway? My little guy is fascinated with them!
He put the prized skull on one of my candlesticks, and he was so proud of himself–too funny. Anyway, the more I looked at Mr. Skull, I was reminded of that famous scene from Hamlet. I majored in English Literature, and I absolutely love Shakespeare–I can always find a reference to the Bard in the most mundane of things.
I also had an empty table by the recliner that the fur boys use, so I decided to do a little Shakespearean Halloween vignette on that wasted space. Here is my tribute to the Bard.
I had printed a quote from Macbeth, which I originally intended on keeping in the kitchen, along with some eye of newt, which I wasn’t using. I added my favorite copy of Shakespeare’s works, which I was lucky enough to purchase long ago in Stratford-Upon-Avon, England, and another book on English castles–yep, we English majors are like that! I also added a white candle, and I topped it off with some fake spider webbing.
Here, we have a close-up of poor Yorick. He looks happier now that he isn’t alone.
I love this quote, and I use it often when I’m cooking! I also love using Picmonkey; the possibilities are truly endless! I used it to make this sign and the label for the newt eyes. Here is one last look at the scene.
