Halloween Decor

Hello. My name is Jeannie and I am addicted to holiday decor. Seriously, I cannot stop myself from planning, making, and buying decorating items.

It doesn’t last all year long. Most holidays are safe. The Fourth of July has little to offer and Easter is good enough with just a few eggs.

  1. Ha ha! You’re awesome! I am kind of the opposite- I think I’d love it if someone actually came and decorated my home for me, but I don’t want to do any work myself. So, if your house gets too cluttered…

  2. Great, now I have four more things I want to make for Halloween from this post. You are awesome, I love it! I think I’m going to do a doily around an embroidery hook this week with a spider on it (have you seen that one). Maybe we should start our own Holiday Decorating additions club.

  3. EEK! The black roses! The snake oil! The bats!! Soooo thrilled about this post – Would NOT wanted to have missed this!
