I love Halloween.  I look forward to the first of October to dig in my dungeon basement and bring up the box of Halloween decorations.  I like interspersing the decorations in every room in my house.  Here are some pics I took of the different decorations that I like to set out...

This is a vignette that I set up in my guest bathroom.  I got the picture from The Graphics Fairy.  I thought, like her, that this woman looked kind of creepy.  Kind of reminds me of the wicked witch in "The Wizard of Oz".  I thought I should add a tag to the frame that says something like "Eek!".  You know, so that people won't think that I put out a picture of my great-great-great Aunt Agnes ca. 1883 in my bathroom. :-P
I have this hanging on the wall.  This came from Target on clearance last year at the end of the season.
This is one of my favorites.  These spine-tingling candles flank my china cabinet.  They are Dept. 56 candles and they were the last set at a gift shop near our house.  I scooped them up. 
In keeping with the creepy skeleton theme, I have a ceramic skull sitting in my china cabinet lit up with one of those battery-operated tealight candles.  (cue diabolical laughter).
Here is my mantel.  The lights are jack-o-lanterns and they came from Target on clearance a few years ago.  (See a pattern here?);-)

This is on one of my end tables.  I love my haunted house.  I ordered that at a Partylite party many years ago.  That is a keeper.  The pic is my son and I taken around 7 years ago.  I try to dress up to pass out candy.  I'm still a kid at heart.:-)
I love Snow Babies.  I believe I got this from Avon, if you can believe it.   It is also one of my favorites.

I have other decorations throughout my home such as pumpkins and spiders.  These are some of my favorites.

Thanks for looking in!
