  5. I don't get a lot of visitors to my house in the middle of nowhere, so I don't do a lot of decorating until Thanksgiving and Christmas. However, I have my first grandchild on the way, and I think Halloween will become a fun holiday once again to decorate for.

    I decorate for fall with some Halloween thrown in for good measure.

  7. You & your family are in my continued thoughts & prayers. The hardest thing in life is to say goodbye to someone you love.
    I'm sure all your followers would agree, take some time away & breathe. {not too long!:)}
    Hang your head high & know how proud your dad must be of you!

  9. Joy, it sounds like you are keeping your spirits up. As prepared as you are, it will still hit you hard when the time comes. Allow yourself time to grieve and treasure the memories you have.

    Now on to your question. Basically just fall with some Halloween thrown in just for the night of our annual hayride.

  10. I usually just put up a few fall decorations, but now that my son is a little older I will do Halloween this year.

  14. kids are all grown and so are grand kids so do not decorate for Halloween or Thanksgiving. Christmas spent with kids so don't do much decorating for that either. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

  15. Joy - sending you hugs and prayers to help you during this difficult time. I've been there with both parents so I understand how hard this is.
    I do BIG time Fall decorating ,then add a few Halloween touches in October and a few Thanksgiving touches in Nov. That way I can leave most of it up from Sept. til Christmas decorating time! I have not done ANY decorating yet for Fall, however!

  17. Continuing prayers for your family! I love fall and especially Halloween, so we definitely decorate for both. The Fall decorations will be put up soon, maybe this weekend, and then I add Halloween to it around October 1st. Its been too warm to think about Fall here :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I first want to say I hope everyone is holding up under the circumstances - more prayers for all of you during this time.....
    I love Halloween and decorate even if we don't stay home. NOt as much outside anymore, but inside, well its so much fun. And don't forget the food. Some great ideas this year that are easy and creepy cute. Have a good weekend Joy and hugs to all.

  23. Love Halloween!! My daughter's teenage friends in our neighborhood recently told her that they actually make a special trip to drive by our house at Halloween because they love seeing the decorations! That just gives me the added incentive to keep adding to the fun. Decorations go up on Oct. 1 and come down the week after Halloween on the best weather day.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I thought I would decorate for Halloween when my kids were young. It doesn't matter how old they are, the vote is to decorate for both!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Mostly for fall, but I do put out special Halloween things here and there. Like my special Mary Engelbriet pumpkins and things. I do tend to decorate the kids/guest bathroom up for each and every holiday. It's a small space that is easy to change and update monthly.

  26. I LOVE Halloween, it's my favorite time of the year. Plus I love Tim Holtz products! I can't wait to start my Halloween decorating/card making.

    I plan on doing more decorating this year since I purchased Artbooking just recently. I will probably do mostly fall because I can enjoy it longer than just Halloween.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I decorate for both Halloween & Autumn. The carved pumpkins are put out for Halloween in the front windows facing so people outside can see them with tap lights to light them up with. After Halloween is over I turn the pumpkins around and walla they are Autumn pumpkins.

  40. Fall is my favorite time of year! I like to decorate for both. One year I printed out photos of myself, my kids, and the grands of our costumes over the years. I glued them to chipboard, cute them out and made stands for them. Then I laid down a string of orange twinkle lights in my hutch, covered them with real fallen maple leaves, then staggered the standing cut outs through out. It was a big hit! Part of my decorating is also scents...nothing but pumpkin spice and cinnamon. :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. The kids are grown so I just don't decorate much like I used to.

    ReplyDelete
  42. So sorry to hear about your Dad. It must be very hard to deal with and plan and make arrangements. Cyber hugs and prayers! I do decorate for both fall and halloween. Put out quite a bit in the yard and a few things inside. Mostly outside though.

  43. Fall is my favorite time of year-I decorate for both fall and Halloween, as well as my girls' birthdays!

  64. Hang in there, Joy! What you're dealing with is hard, and you're never really ready for it, no matter how much you try to prepare yourself. It's been 6 months since my beloved Papa joined Mama in heaven, and it's still hard. Hugs and prayers to you and your loved ones! And thanks for sharing with us. I've already learned so much from you! Dorothy in Baltimore

  77. I am so very, very sorry to hear about your Father. He sounds like a wonderful man, both professionally and personally. I think the greatest tribute to a person is the expression of love by others and you have shown you love your Dad very much.

    I love to decorate for both Halloween and Fall and have separate door wreaths and some different main decorations for the different events but both share some of the same such as fall leaves, Indian corn, hay bales.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I like to decorate for Halloween and Fall separately. I no longer have any kids at home and don't get many visitors but I still like to decorate my home for the holidays and seasons.

    ReplyDelete
  79. so sorry for your loss. I am usually on vacation during Halloween, but still decorate for Fall

    ReplyDelete
  80. I decorate for both. I think Fall is one of my favorite seasons!

    ReplyDelete
  81. So sorry for all that you are dealing with. I have been there since I have lost both of my parents. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. On to your question.. I just decorated for Fall last night and then I will add the Halloween decorations around Oct. 15th. Then it all comes down the first of Nov in preparation for Christmas.

  82. We used to have a Haunted House party until my dd was born... then life just didn't allow it. Over time our yard decor fell apart and we never made new stuff.. so now.. it's just a few halloween things around the inside of the house... sometimes pumpkins outside if we can find decent ones at a decent price. I think i will get some Halloween decor out today!!! It will mostly get put away right after halloween since i will be preparing for company on Thanksgiving.
