All the kids in our neighborhood have been riding their bike and stopping to take in the site of our yard bc there is only one other yard decorated in our neighborhood so far ..... Only 3 r 4 people decorate for halloween here anyway - I am taking it easy this year bc we r going out of town for 8 days for our 1 yr anniversary in the middle of the month - however I'm already planning our decorations for next year
Not much. Down the road, a flock of ghosts have appeared hanging from a tree. In the same yard where someone has had a life-sized sculpture of Sasquatch under a tree. Noticed yesterday that Sasquatch is now cradling a bottle of beer.
Pumpkins started appearing on front steps in my neighborhood last week.
Last night, we went to a friend's house an hour away, further out of town, and on the way I spotted several homes that had gone all out already with the orange lights, skeletons, and ghosts. I think they just started sprouting up in the last week.
I've only seen a couple pumpkins so far. Being my first year in the new neighborhood I'm watching what others do. Once I see someone make an attempt I will open my garage door and open the flood gates on them LOL \m/ \m/
I've seen a pumpkin sitting on a sidewalk and one of those Raggedy Ann looking scarecrows. That's actually pretty good for around here. After next weekend I'm sure there will be more. Most people insist on waiting till October. This is the first year I've put stuff out before October and that was only because I'm going to be out of town next weekend helping my daughter set up her yard.
So far there are three houses in my neighborhood totally decorated for Halloween. The first of them went up at the end of August, if you can believe that. Then again, since the end of August is when you see the first Halloween decorations start to show up in stores like the Dollar Tree, I've always considered the end of August to be the true beginning of the Halloween season.
Just wanted to share our haunt this year - we just moved into the neighborhood in August (that is one way to make a first impression on the neighbors...lol). Only had about a month and a half to get it up and running but it turned out pretty amazing.
I thought a thread dedicated to posting “helpful” solution items might make an interesting read. We all come up against projects doing something for the first time and might not know about things that could make our projects easier/cheaper maybe even better. So share if you have or used...
Overall, last year was pretty good for me.
It was the first year back to haunting as my primary project for the year after several years of remodeling and a year of unemployment, and first year of what I intend to be a 3 year theme/project (knowing me it'll end up more like 8 years, but...
For several years I have been toiling with the idea of starting my own Halloween themed website. I have been waiting until I had enough content; at least interesting stuff that people would actually want to look at. I think I'm finally ready to share my twisted thoughts and ghastly images with...
