I was so proud of myself for getting our house all dressed up for Halloween by October 1st, and I'm just now getting the blog post up. So here are a few pictures of my house at Halloween. Keep in mind that I live at the beach so that theme is always underlying even during the holidays.
There is a palm tree and a pelican carved into my pumpkin...love carving pumpkins!
It was my best friend's birthday last week and this is the stash I wrapped for her. Some of it is just silly stuff like bath salts and tennis balls. But I like it to be a big pile; I'm still a kid like that.
I wish these hand-painted witch glasses didn't have to spend most of the year in storage...they're just so stinkin' cute.
I've had these bears since I was little, it's not Halloween without these little guys.
Meet Padre....he's there all year round.
This is my best friend and I on Halloween 2006. We change this picture with the seasons.
Masks are so cool, they always make me want to dress up for a masquerade ball.
These witch tapers are another favorite. Yah it's pretty much all my favorite. I love holiday festivities.
Gotta decorate the bathroom too!
Yep, those are some of my scrapbooks to the left...all pink and black of course : ).
Can I just take a moment and write about how much I LOVE candles? I just got my order from Gold Canyon. These are the most yummy and festive candles ever. Its also not Halloween if my house doesn't smell like a pumpkin patch!
These are pretty much the same shot of my kitchen but I couldn't decide whether the night or day shot was better, so I posted both : ). I love how Monday Night Football is on in the background of this one. My favorite show!
I ordered Pumpkin Pie (using this one for Halloween), Mulled Harvest (Thanksgiving), Cozy Christmas, and Holiday Wreath (two for Christmas). I love taking these out as the holidays go by. My mom always reminds me to keep the "light of God" shining in my house to remind me of His constanst presence - love that.
I was thinking of posting the shots of the house at Christmas in 12 days of Christmas posts. And then follow it up with 12 days of Christmas layouts. Sound like fun?
