Seer of All
No, I have to put it all away every year. I get very claustrophobic with all the decor after a while. I need to be able to clear it all out and have "breathing room" again.
I guess it depends on the person. I have so much i keep some packed away but other things that are really fragile stay out year round for fear of getting broken. I want to transform my bathroom into a Halloween bathroom. Working out the specifics now LOL...would you feel right at home and that they were just as special, or would you prefer to have the certain couple or few months to look forward to?
Holy LORD. Wolfbeard, that is the coolest thing I have ever seen. Do you and your wife ever place hands or a leg coming outta that sucker?
Thanks Laurie.Holy LORD. Wolfbeard, that is the coolest thing I have ever seen. Do you and your wife ever place hands or a leg coming outta that sucker?
So, looks like the general consensus so far is to have a few reminders out year round and be able to look forward to the lock, stock and barrel at the right time. Me too. I do wish I could keep a couple pieces of my village out year round, but will definitely settle for our china cabinet-which I have hijacked by boxing up the china and placing all my horror novels, potion bottles, mini tombstones, monster collection and purple lights inside. That thing has never looked better.
I agree with this post as well. If I left out my decorations all year, I don't think I'd have as much to look forward to. And looking forward to Halloween is half the fun for me.I really enjoy the excitement right around August/September/October when I dig all my Halloween stuff out from under the stairs and look through it to see what I bought on clearance last year or trying to find just the right place for something. I get down right giddy over it! I have started to feel that excitement again just in the last week or 2. I like my "normal" home decor too, so for me my Halloween decorations come out only at Halloween except for maybe 1 or 2 small pieces that are on my desk.
Leaving it up all year would be fun too, but I'm afraid I wouldn't feel that child-like excitement about Halloween anymore!
