Halloween at home

With every passing year my decorating style becomes less is best. For me that is.
I truly love decorations for any season and holiday. Shopping during holiday time is something I love to do with my girlfriends, and of course there is lunch and girl talk!

It is difficult not to buy every holiday decoration I fancy, but my dreams of Airstream travel trailer living are making me downsize the decorations. We don't plan on full time travel trailer living-but the thought of Maine in the Summer is on my list.

Back to the decorations:

A look at my attempt at downsizing the Halloween decorations in my house, plus having grown kids helps with less over the top decorating every nook and cranny. The fireplace mantel is where is at these days.

I love these little wooden creatures from Primitives by Kathy. The pumpkins and spider were made by my daughter. (above)
