Decorating for Halloween

Yes, it is my favorite time of year. The weather is cooler (below 100F) and the cactus leaves (that would be thorns to you outsiders) start to change color.

Okay, I made the last part up. For the most part, I import my colored leaves. And while they’re not pictured I have hung the autumnal garland around the lights over my dining room table.

Elsewhere, I have decorated our bookshelves in my Halloween goodies:

the pumpkin on top holds candy. Not for long, mind you, but for a little bit. Especially those lovely 10 lb bags of bubble gum and blow pops.

This house is one I found at Goodwill and while I still haven’t found my fall trees that go with the set, I love this house the best.

The graveyard tours house is the latest addition to our family as are the two zombies climbing out of the grave. My husband picked them out and when we got home to put it up, I noticed pieces were broken. Back to the store I went and viola this one is not broken.

And this one is the reason why no one should decorate their house while they are sick. You see under the influence of aspirin and antihistamines I hung our ghoulish addition from last year. In the morning when I went to take the dog for a walk early in the morning, I about jumped out of my skin when the dang thing grabbed my hair.

Thankfully, no one woke up:-)

    On Halloween night I just stand outside on the porch, smile and lick my lips alot. It has a pretty creepy effect.
