I Love Halloween!

I really like the whole Halloween scene! I like the ghoulish jack o lanterns, the funny witches, and the friendly ghosts! I love to see children in their princess or Power Ranger costumes, tripping up the sidewalk in apprehension of what kind of candy they will get. Now that Yngwie is too old to trick or treat, we go to my Grandmother's house to pass out candy to the trick or treaters on her street.

Here a couple of photos of my Halloween Tree and Villages. The tree is new. I had been using a table top Christmas tree, but when I saw this one at TJ Maxx, I couldn't resist. I bought the pumpkin garland and the candy corn lights last year and they fit right on to this tree. I found the little ornaments with the bats, Frankenstein, etc.. at a gift store in town. I also have some rubber "body parts" on the tree.

The little villages and people are just things I have found through the years. The Peanuts characters I got at Hallmark a few years ago and the squirrel and the owl are just little figures I picked up at a thrift store and they wanted in on the fun. There is a hodge-podge of a lot of different things going on, but it's fun to look at all lit up at night.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Oooh, I love the Halloween tree! What a terrific display! I'm a nut about Halloween, too, and this year will be having some friends over to party and hand out candy at my "Roswell Alien Crash Site." Hope you get lots of little goblins at your door!

Wonderful decorations - it's fun to see that Halloween decorations are really coming into to style again. When I was growing up, our neighbor had some really fun vintage decorations that came out at this time of year.

Your halloween decor is very nice.
It won't be long now and the kids will be out trick or treating.
Megan keeps asking when are we going trick or treating.
She is going to be a witch (she has a costume and hat)
Derek is going to be a devil.

Dear Linda,

We just got back from a fabulous vacation, when I noticed I received the most wonderful treat - a Halloween Swap Box from you! Thank you so very much for all of the wonderful goodies you enclosed. I can't wait to wear the cute sockies, and eat the yummy candy. My childred ooh'ed and aah'ed over everything as I unwrapped it out of the box.
You are such a sweet person. Thank you so much for your wonderful thoughtfullness, and participating in this fun swap!
Love, Dawn

I love your Halloween decor. I would love to have a little village like that, but can we say choking hazard? Darn! Maybe in a few more years. :0)
