So, we’ve finally got all the decorations for both autumn and Samhain up. We decorate in stages–in August, it’s all about Lughnasadh and corn and sunflowers. Then at the beginning of September, out come the early autumn decorations–some of the garlands and autumn figurines. Then at the beginning of October, we add the Samhain decorations. So here are some of our indoor decorations for the season. Tomorrow, I’ll be posting pics of the outdoor decorations! Tell me, what do you have in your house for the season?

    Spooky fun decorations! They’re beautiful!
    We decorated early…August.
    We have a variety of wreaths, indoor lighting and Garland on our banister, A teeny black tree with mini lights and figurines, and a whole lot of signs, etc.

    Samhain is our favorite holiday, and I will be spending it recovering from another surgery.
    My greatest wish is that we find our missing for two weeks cat Merlin, who slipped out of the house. Need my mini black panther back badly!
    Having thumb reconstruction. I’ll be a mummy, or at least my forearm will be!
    Brightest Blessings!

    We have a new animal so they are not to the stage where they won’t chew on anything new yet. Normally I like to put out my pumpkins, some candles, and just have fun with colors.

    I love to put up holiday decorations. This must be the result of having been a kindergarten and first grade teacher. I have cute black cats ( both ceramic as well as fabric) all over the living room. There are also some pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns. One has little mice peeping out. Even though I now have enough to start placing items in the family room, if I see something cute, I can’t restrain from getting it. I do limit to one or two things each year and sometimes recycle some of the outdoor decorations if weather damaged.

    I miss decorating. When the kids were little we would make tissue paper ghosts, paper chains, and iron leaves and crayon shavings between sheets of waxed paper to hang in the windows. Now the kids are adults and our house is too cluttered for fun decorations.

    Maybe… That will be a goal for next year. To be able to decorate for Samhain 2022.

    This year we aren’t decorating, we adopted a rescue dog and he is still learning. So rather than tempt fate, we aren’t decorating

    So beautiful! I tell you, I’m not much of a decorator. Sometimes it is about confidence, other times it’s about spending money. But I’m kind of over all of that. However, for the past year, I’ve been splitting my time between two residences and I am REALLY looking forward to just settling down in one place! That said, the place we spend the most of our time is our 5th wheel. Not much space for decorating. But I do have a small altar set up and I have some autumn goodies placed there. I try to rotate things through at least once a season, if not more.

    Your decorations are lovely! It’s easy to see that you love the seasons, and that decorating is a fun part of it.

    We have put up our Halloween tree. It is a black twig tree–5′ tall–with purple lights. My next task is to make ornaments out of the buttons, broken garlands and other small things that are in the Halloween trunk.

    A good portion of our Halloween decor is from my 50th birthday party. I threw it for myself: nearly 50 attendees, costumes, games, prizes, a barbecue.

    I really don’t mind that much of our current decor builds on that party.

    One of my favorite birthday gifts this year is a diy music box featuring a pirate cat!
