I have pumpkins on the front porch, but nothing else outside. I live on a farm, so nobody would see anything. Inside, though, I go all out. I don't like the gory stuff, though. I decorate with lots and lots of pumpkins, witches, ghosts, Halloween Snowbabies, fall leaves, and some of my own crafts.

When I was growing up (physically) we lived out in the boondocks. My father, who wouldn't spend a dime if he didn't have to, made a fence for the front yard out of old telephone poles and lathe. Classic, let me tell you. On each pole we would sit our jack-o-lanterns and light them up, then go stand in the road and watch them burn. It was either that or Lawrence Welk. But, even though we were out in the middle of nowhere, kids from the college in town would come out there every year and smash our pumpkins while we slept. Tradition... tradition!

i wish i was better at carving punkers than i am. i suck at it. even with those templates and things. i just suck. it is sad, really. here's hoping the bf has some talent in that regard!


i love the image of all those jackies lined up on the fence posts, grinning in the night.

I remember the time I put the pirate mask on the basketball and put it under the toilet lid. I was nervous about scaring my mom and even more nervous that she wouldn't notice it.

I guess I'm just decoration crazy. At Halloween, my house looks like the Haunted Mansion. We have a ghost bride in the center upstairs window, and in the yard we have a graveyard with funny tombstones, a skeleton wedding, and on the porch we have a scarecrow family with 2 baby scarecrows. The inside gets all decked out with my vintage Halloween collection. We try to keep it harmless, because so many very young children come to get candy on Halloween. No gore, and just a little scary.
After Halloween, while I'm on the chairs and ladders taking everything down, I'm also putting up all the Christmas lights. Colored lights and wreaths in the windows, lights on the porch, lights in the yard, a Nativity scene, the whole nine yards. I'm the only person in my neighborhood who decorates, and I'm sure my neighbors think I'm nuts, but who cares. It's a lot of fun to come home to after a long day's work!

I decorate for fall but dont do a whole lot for Halloween. I really like fall decorations -- I think I will dig some out tomorrow and see what I can do around the house.
