Trop tôt?

We all heard about Christmas in July but what about Halloween in August? Am I the only one thinking about Halloween and Halloween decorations? It's my second favorite holiday (Christmas #1).

As a child I loved getting dressed up with 2 empty garbage bags to fill it up with candy. Oh yeah, remember those cheap plastic masks that had 2 teeny tiny nostril holes that you couldn't breath well and just fogged up inside? The ones that were also magically held with a rubber band (for a few seconds) that snapped at your head or face? Yup. Good times! Good time

Ok, back to the point of this post. I love to decorate and so when Halloween is upon us, I start moving. I usually decorate 2-3 weeks before Halloween. I like to get in early since I love to see kids stopping by and looking at my front yard. I am looking for some ideas in decorations. Anyone wants to share what their front yard looked like? Or maybe their home decorated for Halloween. I will post them on my blog (with due credit) if I get any and we can all swap ideas. Oui or non? Here are what I had done last year. Nothing fancy since I didn't know what to do. I don't do bloody stuff. Horror is not my thing.

What the kids saw at my door. Also had those 2 mechanical bats flying in circles. Some small kids never got past that to get the candy. I would have to walk down my entry path to give it to them.

Now share yours since I need new ideas! Merci!

A bientôt!

wow, already about hallowe'en? Although, my husband works at a bookstore and said all the magazines are already talking about halloween so maybe it's time...I really like your pumpkins - where'd you get the designs? and you just used a knife? looks hard. anyhow, i heard about an idea for house decorating for halloween - it seems a house had been done up to look like a person, i think, with big long fabric pieces coming out of bottom across lawn to look like the legs of the house (am i describing it right?); but it also made me think you could use striped fabric, stuff two tubes and add sparkly red shoes to look like the house had landed on the witch, from the wizard of Oz. and that's my only idea, but i thought i'd share it. *hugs*
