I love Halloween! It has always been one of my favorite holidays, even though I am a Holidayaholic. I love them all! When I was little we never went out and bought Halloween costumes. We just rummaged through the old clothes and pulled out bits and pieces and made up costumes. Most years my sister and I would either be hobos or gypsies, they were pretty easy to do. Sometimes we would just put on bib overalls, a flannel shirt, and a strawhat and call it a scarecrow. Unfortunately, my parents weren't too good about taking picutres so there are no Halloween pics. How I wish there were!
Growing up I really don't remember there being any Halloween "decorations" in our house. We would carve a pumpkin and Mama had these platstic blowmolds of a cat with a pumpkin on it's back that she hung over the lights on each side of the door.
I however, go gung ho with decorations for Halloween. The more glittery and tacky, the better! That's why I love my Happy Shelves! I stuff it full on all sorts of Halloween bits and bobs! Here's a close up:
