Dollar Store Decorating - Skeleton Garland

Halloween decor is starting to sneak into my house, and I've decided that I may as well decorate for Autumn too... I think I have a difficult time with this transition because of how long we wait for summer to arrive where I live (as much as I love fall once I settle into it). The only way to fix that is to move somewhere warmer, and since that's not happening any time soon I'm putting on my big girl pants and I'm throwin' some pumpkins around.

And skeletons.


I found these little garlands at the dollar store a couple days ago, and pieced three of them together. Love them. Hopefully soon they'll have some Halloween buddies out!


Oh, and I also bought this:


I'm 99% sure that the one that bit me (twice!) looked just like this. I need to keep this around to help me remember my past mistakes so I don't make them again. So, you know... I'm just going to need to stay inside. Forever.

  2. It's nice how the skeletons are hanging by their necks. Nice touch.

    1. I thought that was a little macabre myself ;) but when I tried to change it they wouldn't hang right. Oh well!

  3. I've been following you since you we're featured on YHL, and I never thought I'd come out of the woodwork on a Halloween decoration post (I actually mostly hate Halloween-I know, it's kind of unAmerican) BUT I noticed that your spider friend was perching on my favorite book, Gilead so I had to comment. We actually found our daughter's name, Lila, in Gilead (Lila is Ames' wife). So now, in addition to enjoying your sense of humor and your DIY projects, I am now a fan of your literary taste as well. :)

    1. Ack! Darn auto correct. That "we're" was supposed to be "were." My first comment and there's a grammatical error. *sigh*
