I would love to decorate for all seasons, holidays, various times of the year, etc.  It looks so much fun, and so pretty.  But honestly I just have never made time to gather/make things to decorate.  I have limited space to store decorations and just have never tried.  This year I pulled out a few Halloween things (note the meager decorations - at least I'm trying, right?).

Yep.  That's pretty much it. 
I have a friend who has a huge Halloween bash every year and her decorations are AMAZING!  I should get some pictures (and pointers).  In fact at her party she has an auction, and last year I got this guy:
I think he is pretty fantastic. 

However I did make this banner:
A bit long...Probably should have just gone with "Halloween" - but it was SO much fun to make!  I had a blast using my scrapbooking skills (and the Silhouette). 

 Here are some close-up shots:

The C in "Trick" might be my favorite:

The banner is a bit long for the fire place so in case it gets cold (right now it is quite dreary out but with a 70 degree high) and the fire needs to be used it can't live on the mantle - I put it in between the living and dining room instead. 

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope y'all have a marvelous Halloween with more treats than tricks!

  1. Your decorations look great and I love your banner! Happy Halloween :)

  2. I have that nativity set too, except one wise guy had to have his head super glued back on after my son tossed one of the storage boxes into the air, and the rubble fell upon the scene, making it more like a reenactment of Sodom and Gomorrah than Bethlehem. What's a Wise Guy with his brain severed from his body? Therefore, it was repaired , and I reaffirmed that it is hard to have things stay nice with little ones afoot.
