Do you decorate scary for Halloween or make a cute fall display with hay, smiling jack-o-lanterns and gourds? I use to do the latter but a few years ago I got tired of the “perfect” Martha Stewart fall look with the stacked Cinderella pumpkins, and so I switched to scary decorations.
The switch didn’t cost me much because all you really need is cobwebs which you can buy at the 99 cent store. Every year I add a few new items to the collection. This year I added the hanging limbs from the tree, the scary picture and the Beware tape. Once again I found all this stuff at the 99 cent store so I only spent 8 dollars on decorations this year.
I will buy a few pumpkins for carving but I refuse to spend 50$ on a bunch of pumpkins that will get tossed in November. Pre-recession I used to line my walk way with pumpkins, oh how I miss those days! Oh well, if I really want more pumpkins I can just grow them in my yard next year.
I have to say I really had fun decorating today. I felt like my old self again.
Have a wonderful weekend and if you haven’t yet decorated, hope I inspired you to get on it.
