I’m seeing ghosts, goblins, witches and mummies! Is the world coming to an end? No, it’s just Halloween!
Even though it is creepy, I love the creativity displayed in catalogs, at parties, and around the neighborhood during this season: “finger” sandwiches, eyeballs in glasses, designer jack-o-lanterns, etc. Some of my favorite memories were of digging through whatever we had in the house to create a unique costume that would either make the neighbors say “Awww”, “HaHaHa”, or “EEEk!”
My favorite picture is of my oldest sister winning a costume contest as a scarecrow. (If she had the chance, I think she would still like to scare me as often as possible.) If you are more into Fall décor, the internet and Pinterest are full of wonderful ideas.

It seems appropriate our first blog should be about how we started (in 2004) .......Eleven years ago, at an age when most people are retiring, my husband Ed and I (Donna) started a Christmas décor business.
