Countdown to Halloween

It's my favorite time of the year! The leaves are changing, the evening light is mellowing, caramel apples are back on the menu, and, purple, black and lime green are perfectly acceptable colors with which to deck the halls.

To that end, I spent the weekend in the pursuit of the perfect Halloween d├ęcor. Pinterest provided the motivation I needed to get started, and, after five trips up and down the attic ladder, two trips to Target, and, one trip down memory lane via photographs from decorating schemes of yore (I always forget what I did the previous year and I don't want to duplicate my designs, if I can help it), I managed to create the look I was striving for.








I have a few more details to attend to on the porch and I have a couple of craft projects to work on, but, for the most part I feel like I have accomplished my goal.

Now, I'm off to brew a mug of hot spiced cider to sip on while I watch Hocus Pocus on DVD.

Tis the season!
