This Halloween, since I'd taken the year off from building a theme, I was able to display some of my favourite pieces in my living room. It was so nice to have them out at once (usually only a few might make an appearance depending on the theme).
It was so nice, in fact, that I've been trying to figure out how to bring them out each year (and no, I can't have them all out year-long). I'm toying with the idea of keeping the front room as a classic Halloween decor area that I can build on as I collect and create some goodies.
Then, when it comes to the "theme", I might stick to the dining room and whatever other area of the house I feel like taking over.
And on the years when I want to convert the front room for the theme as well, perhaps I will instead decorate my office (which always has bits and bobs of Halloween in it). Because you know, I really need to bring out my favourite items more often. They lighten my heart.
Here's the first batch of pictures from this year. The focus is the front window. More images to come!
