Decorate for Fall & Halloween using vintage finds like old apothecary bottles, books, and even an antique medical degree!
Ive picked up antique and vintage apothecary items and bottles here and there for years. They normally live in a display cabinet in the hall bath, but I put them out front and center for a spooky mad scientist display in the Fall for Halloween.
I love to include old books in my displays to give added height.
These books are two of my favorites!
Old lab equipment and some fabulous bottles complete the look!

I re-did my mantel display for Fall and Halloween using antique and salvaged apothecary items--even a hand-lettered antique medical degree--it's all in Latin on sheepskin!
