As I drive around these days, I’m enjoying seeing all the Halloween decorations. I have to say that the folks in the house across the street from Southdale Library have taken it to a new level. I particularly love the two skeletons that appear to be climbing onto the roof using a ladder. The big skeleton may be as tall as the house!
While I don’t do a lot of outdoor décor for the various holidays, for many years I did a lot of inside decorating. Over the years I have cut down for various reasons: Nimue, my terrorist tabby likes to eat the Easter grass and bat the plastic eggs around, Rhiannon couldn’t stay away from the Chinese New Year decorations that hung down from various places. And truth be told, it was just too much some years. As I’ve been downsizing my stuff, I’ve really whittled down on all my décor, which lives in big plastic bins in the attic.
For Halloween and Thanksgiving, I have mostly autumn décor: candle rings, pumpkins, lots of flint corn. And, of course, some ceramic bowls with fall designs that have candy in them.
Are you a holiday/seasonal decorator? Inside or out?
