One last Halloween Hurrah!

This is the outside of the house on Halloween. The lights across the front porch are orange in a black garland. The lights in the trees are Jack O'Lanterns and 4 of the 5 strands were in a bag from the thrift store this fall.

Several of the Trick or Treaters were very complimentary about the outside decor.

Now I need to get it put away and get ready for the Christmas lights.

What great way to welcome the Trick or Treaters! I bet your house was everyone's favorite! I know it would be mine. Since you have a LOT of Christmas stuff, when do you start doing your decorating? How long do you leave it up? I'm so excited about seeing what you do that I want the details now. LOL.

I just got my Halloween decor all down, but only part of it packed back up. My Dad's had a really bad week and its been hard to get anything done while taking care of him.
I have a lot of Thanksgiving decor to get out and placed and sure hope I can get it done by the weekend. I'm trying NOT to think about Christmas or I'll be too over-whelmed to move. LOL. Time is just flying by this year.
Wish it would slow down just a bit.
Actually I wish someone would move Thanksgiving to SEPT.
I might need to move to Canada to have more time to decorate for Christmas. ;o)

hugs, Karen

It looks really nice Candy, and that big lighted Jack o Lantern sure says "come get your treats here." How great that you found most of the lights for good prices at the TS too. Sure makes decorating more fun when you get bargains. Luvs

Candy, I love the way you decorated the outside of your house.
It was very welcoming for the trick or treaters.
Even better that you got such a bargain!

RE: One last Halloween Hurrah!

Great lights, candy! No question about a welcoming at your front door! Fun! Fun! TFS! Jeanne S.

purplemoon...if you find a way to slo-o-w things down a bit, pass it on (please)...hugs to you & your DD.

Oh, I love the orange lights. I didn't decorate this year 'cause we were on a vacation in connection with my nephew's wedding at the end of October.

What strikes me most is the four jack o'lanterns on the porch (steps?). I really like those--I think I'll do that next year.
