Halloween Gift Ideas

This post is sponsored and inspired by Gifts for You Now, but all opinions are my own. When I was a kid I looked forward to Halloween almost as much as I anticipated Christmas!  I couldn't fall asleep the night before Halloween, and if it fell on a school day I fidgeted in my desk until the bell rang. Now that my grand kids are of trick or treating age, I invite myself to tag along on their door-to-door excursion. I also like getting something … [Read more...]

Best DIY Halloween Ghosts!

Halloween. That magical evening when gentle fall breezes tickle colorful leaves making them dance down the street while children in spooky costumes are outside bewitching their neighbors for tricks and treats. Inside, I'm watching Jamie Lee Curtis scream for her life in "Halloween" with all the lights off and candles in the window, pausing the movie only to answer the door for hungry visitors. For this year's decorations, I made the best DIY … [Read more...]

Halloween Decorating Ideas

Fall is the season of transitions ... the exit of summer, the turning of leaves, the cooling of temperature, and the shortening of days. There's a lot going on in the month of October, and it ends with a bang when we celebrate Halloween. Here's my Halloween tour to get you in a frightful mood with a few holiday decorating ideas before the trick-or-treaters arrive! Normally I'm not much of a Halloween decorator.

DIY Boo Sign for Halloween

Although I love Halloween, I haven't always done a lot of decorating for the spooky holiday. My idea of All Hallow's Eve decor is to turn off the lights and set out a bunch of candles. Then I turn the TV onto the Halloween movie and watch Jamie Lee Curtis suffer through another night of torture. The mood for the evening of Tricks or Treats is set. But this year I decided to have a little fun and I created a DIY Boo sign for Halloween. Sparkly … [Read more...]

Best Halloween Decoration Ever

Are you enjoying All Hallow's Eve? I don't really do a lot of decorating for Halloween, but this year I lucked out with the best Halloween decoration ever! No, it wasn't a flea market or Ebay find. It was something I found outside. Something that gives you warm fuzzies! Something that doesn't spook you but instead makes you smile every time you see it. Say hello to Felix! We rescued him and he's such a sweetie-pie. Not at all scary. Actually, … [Read more...]

Halloween Decorating in a Jiffy

Since I spend so much time decorating for fall, I don't invest much energy into Halloween decorating. Although I enjoy my neighbors' outdoor decorations, my home doesn't get many spooky embellishments. I don't know about where you live, but around these parts Halloween is quickly becoming the next Christmas when it comes to decorations! In fact, in a day or two I'm gonna show you how one of my neighbors went all out! You don't want to miss it! So … [Read more...]

Halloween Decorations from around Blogland

Do you like to decorate for Halloween? Every year my Halloween decorations are pretty much the same. I have pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns on the front porch and candles in my windows facing the street. I keep the lights off so the candles flicker brightly to passers-by. The glow of the TV tuned into a Halloween movie is all that lights the house on All Hallow's Eve, along with the light from the front porch creeping through the windows. Last week … [Read more...]

Celebrating All Hallow’s Eve

After the trick or treaters have come and gone, how will you spend what's left of your hallowed evening? For me, it's going to be a relaxing, candlelit bubble bath. Lots of autumn candles scented with pumpkin and cinnamon. Makes me wanna just climb on in. A good book is a must when you want to linger in the bubbles. A variety of candles is heavenly, as long as you make sure the fragrances blend well. I wrapped a few mason … [Read more...]

Fall Scenes and Spooky Houses

Fall is my favorite season! It's so rich in color and the earth is just bursting with its harvest. There's a magical feel in the air that stirs the soul on a crisp autumn night lit by a full moon. On recent walks I took some photos of the beauty of this earth and season, along with a couple of homes that have a haunting aura about them. Lace up your shoes and join me for a walk in the woods! Even though it's a gloomy day out, the trees glow in … [Read more...]
