Halloween is Creeping in Early
Normally I don’t share my Halloween decor until early October, because despite decorating mid-September, I tend to spend the remaining weeks of September combing antique malls and flea markets for fresh vintage finds to add. But, this year obviously is much, much different. I’ve taken COVID-19 extremely seriously, and despite many antique malls reopening, and a handful of flea markets beginning again, I have not felt comfortable going. So I actually decorated in August, and then spent time scouring the internet for fresh finds, giving time for them to be shipped. Additionally, earlier in this pandemic, I spent a great deal of time sewing, including whipping up some spooky dresses, and I figured now would be also a great time to share one of them.
Obviously the Halloween season will be much different this year, many of our typical events have been cancelled or altered. For example, the Anaheim Halloween Parade has changed to a “Drive-Thru” experience. The drive-in/thru has been adapted for several Halloween events this year, and we have tickets to one next month. I’m hopeful they will give some level of safe fun this season. Other than that I foresee a lot of scary movie watching in my future.
Have you decorated for Halloween yet? How is COVID-19 impacting your Halloween season?

Love all the vintage Halloween figurines, and the Ghostland lunch pail! Thanks for sharing this early look at your Halloween decorations.
All of your Halloween decorations, are amazing looking at them,
take me back when I was a kid, my mom would have the house
decorated and surprise us. I love Halloween so much, great job
I love your decorations. What do you use to safely hang your paper decorations on the wall, without leaving a mark behind?
Hi Carol! Great question! I did a blog post about it awhile ago that you can read here
Most stuff on the wall is hung with thread and then either tape or Command Hooks.
Love this so much! This year I’m still making costumes we can just wear costumes that are more good for photographing than walking around in and it looks like a Target exploded in my house, I’ve been getting all of the creepy plants.
Couldn’t love every last Halloween treasure – your awesome dress 100% included – if I tried. Thank you so much for this festive sneak peek at your incredible fall time decor. It made my day and then some.
