I've started inside in our 'sitting room'...it's MCM so I went with vintage vibe in there. We've started collecting some more 'limited' pieces like the chicken lips and the Charmed confections so those will stay out year round. Tomorrow I plan to start transforming the dining room to 'Dark and Deco' from Joann Fabric--i LOVE this elegant theme.

Your decorating style is fabulous. Where did you find the mid-century style curtains and throw pillows with the pumpkins on them?

Is anyone beginning to decorate indoors yet? Is it too early? I usually start getting antsy to put things out around Labor Day but I try to hold off until the first day of autumn. Over the years I have invested considerable time and money in my Halloween collection and want to enjoy it for as long as possible.

Is anyone willing to share thoughts on what is an appropriate timeline for indoor decorating?

For multiple reasons I don’t decorate outside until mid October.
The real question should be, “does anyone ever stop decorating inside?” I am fortunate that I married a man who likes my weirdness and helped me build a Halloween Room where I can get my fix all year long!

this is so weird....I jumped in and did the sitting room...whang bang, it's done! I'm not ready to move onto the dining room and I just can't. i've never been hesitant about decorating a room. I almost feel like i'm not 'good enough' to attempt the dark and deco in that room. But I guess I'm going in....like...NOW!!!

I took out some boxes last night to "remember" what I have and will decorate the inside this weekend. I will do the outside around October 1-3.

i put a jack stack on the porch yesterday and the HOA hasn't tacked a note on my door yet. This is our first year here so I'm not sure what's the 'de rigeur' yet.

Well we put out the outdoor blow molds today. They're not all plugged in yet but they're out in their usual spots next to the house.

I'm usually an Oct.-1-for-Halloween-stuff-being-out-in-the-yard-&-house kinda gal because I don't want it to become overwhelming & less special for me & the neighbors (we don't have an HOA so no worries there), but this year is so different in so many ways. I'm not working this year, my husband is working from home every day until January at least, the pandemic crap, that I figured why not?

I'll work on the rest of the house this week maybe because, honestly, it'll take me a good week to clean up the joint to make it less crapped up to up what is basically....welll...more crap!! :D

Today I got the first part of my indoor display set up, just in time for Talk like a Pirate Day! Truthfully, since every day is TLAPD, I was cheerfully reminded of the significance of the day by my dear and patient wife!
Just a quick pic, as I already loaded a bunch in my recent thread,
In honor of International Talk Like a Pirate Day, I... -

I love seeing everyone's unique and eerily wonderful designs and builds! Keep 'em coming!
