For a really long time, I've lived my life with a "more is more" mind set. In some areas, this isn't so bad. In others (like food and shopping!), it's not such a good thing.
So, last year some of you may remember the Halloween House, and all the decorating I did. If not, you can check it out here.
This year I've adopted a new approach. I've been decorated since the end of August...
Isn't he cute?! That's my nod to Halloween. I bought him right before I took Chicken Little back to school, and he's been on display ever since. (I was just too lazy to put him away.)
The card is from CL. Give a hoot, cause it's so cute. (LOL - ugh!) CL has also been prepared for Halloween for quite a while because she made all of these cards while she was home this summer. Give her credit - she did wait to send it until just a few weeks ago.
So, that's pretty much it, except for the mantle.
I kinda like it.
AND when it comes time to switch it out for Thanksgiving.... BAM! I'm done. :-)
I think I could really begin to embrace this whole minimalist thing.
