Halloween has long been one of my favorite holidays.  Getting dressed up and wandering the streets in search of free candy?  It really doesn't get any better than that!

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!!
