How can it already be time for Halloween?

I swear we just celebrated Halloween.  It seems like only yesterday when I posted about decorating my house and how much I love Halloween.  Now here we are again.  I didn’t get anything new this year.  I used what I already have and changed-up my displays a little.  I wanted to go for something more Edgar Allan Poe-ish this year and I don’t know if I achieved that, or not, but for using only what I already have I’d say it isn’t too bad.

The picture was found years ago in a trash pile at some random house and the bottles were a Christmas gift last year from my nephew who knows I love Halloween.  Of course I also used my orange owl George.   I love George and he loves me back for rescuing him from Target’s Dollar Spot.  The fluorescent lights in that place were killing him.

When you back-up, it’s a little less Poe-ish but still okay.

I re-used the Halloween banner I made last year which is holding-up surprisingly well.  I may still shade in the letters.  It’s year two and it may take me another couple of years to decide if I really want to put any more effort into it or not.  Last year I was really into the whole season it but this year has been really busy and I feel like it’s going way too fast.

So have you noticed the year has flown by too?

  1. You bet! I’ve been feeling this over and over, the year is really flying! I can’t believe it’s November already.
    This year, I decorated later than you… like yesterday! The good thing is I like to combine both Halloween and Day of Dead, so I’ve still 2 more days to go 😉

    By the way, I love your decor. It does look Edgar Allan Poe-ish, and I love it!
