But somehow, as the years passed and I outgrew trick-or-treating, my Halloween/autumn decorations have become more and more minimal. This year it's probably just as well, since I doubt whether trick-or-treat will be happening in my town, given the current weather situation. ;-)
Next year I want to carve actual pumpkins, plant mums in front of the porch, put up lights and cobwebs, and have one of my friends make an autumn-appropriate wreath for the front door.
In the meantime, this is what I'm working with:
|A fake jack-o-lantern and a cauldron (full of Hershey Kisses!) on top of my new desk.|
|Autumn-themed dish towels I won at a tricky tray a couple of years ago.|
|This cute little thing is on top of the toilet, because the bathroom needs to be a little festive, too!|
|My beloved skeleton lights, which I've had since middle school, now adorn the bar.|
|Our bar, all lit up! Even if all I can do for the time being is sit back and admire it. ;-)|
If any of you folks have posts with photos of your Halloween/autumn decor, share the link below - I need some inspiration/motivation for next year! ;-)
P.S. This is a scheduled post, so by the time it's up, it's entirely possible that Hurricane Sandy will have plunged us into darkness. Good thing I have a decent supply of candles and books!!
