When do you start decorating ?

What do you like to decorate with? That bucket of blood?

tonight i wrapped a full sized skeleton up in spider webs and hung him in our completely wrapped porch a :)
Last night 'twas witching Hallowe'en
Dearest; an apple russet- brown
I pared, and thrice above my crown
Whirled the long skin; they watched in keen;
I flung it far; they laughed and cried me shame
Dearest, there lay the letter of your name!

Unfortunatly I haven't got anything else up other than the hanging ghot and scarecrow in my bedroom and a few lil things in my truck. Instead I've been spending more time trying to figure out my costume but I'm hoping that this weekend I'm going to put some more up since Halloween is just around the corner :D

I still have two things that I need to put up, and I've been working like a dog so I have not had the time, but this Saturday, for sure. Everything else is up and running.

...Is it that strange that I actually started in mid August? XD

I've been putting out different decorations here and there throughout the past few months.

Not strange if you enjoy it.

My yard haunt is still in its infancy. I will be setting it up this week. Inside I'm done.

I'm done inside, but way behind on the outside stuff. I have some up, but need to finish. Hopefully this weekend.
We're the farmer's scarecrows
We scare away the birds,
We keep the farmer's corn safe
Without any words.
But when Halloween comes
We jump out of the ground
And we scare the boys and girls
When they come walking 'round.

I got most of my outside display up yesterday. I will be adding some pumpkins, of course. My front yard trees have grown, and now I feel I need to buy more lights to string in them, but my husband says, not this year. I guess he doesn't want us to spend too extravagantly.

Right now, I'm just looking forward to decorating for any holiday now that Christmas is over. The living room looks so bare and empty without the tree.

Not sure when I'll start decorating for Halloween this year. Might just depend on when I get into the Halloween spirit. XD I am seeing some Halloween lights and an inflatable cat sitting on a shelf that I never got to put up last year. I'll have to make a mental note to put them out this year. We got some hooks for Christmas lights, so perhaps I can use those for the Halloween ones.

I have gone back and forth on this issue for a while. When I was younger I tried to avoid decorating or even getting excited a little bit for fear that I would be burnt out on when the holiday arrives. That is not the case I learned this year if you want to have a great yard haunt the planning starts in February and you start building in June. So that is what I am doing now is building a cloaked ghost with lantern and maybe some tombstones. I've got to get started on planting pumpkins today too!

I just can't wait until next Halloween,
'Cause I've got some new ideas
that will really make them scream!
And, by God, I'm really gonna give it all my might!

Good luck with the pumpkins, I haven't had luck for a few years now .
All you that doth my grave pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for death & follow me.

I'm thinking of waiting until next year to plant pumpkins at this point. I think if I started now they wouldn't be finished growing before the first frost sets in.
That's OK though. It'll be enough fun picking out a pumpkin, and we should be more settled in by next year.
I may hold off on the theme too. Castle theme is a cool idea and all, but I got so many new decorations now I'm probably just going to display those this year. I don't even think I'll need to buy any this year.

Probably would help if we had some water.
