I Decorated for Halloween After All

This year I had decided not to put out any Halloween decorations.  It's a lot of work and usually no one sees them except us.  We always buy candy in case any trick or treaters come to the door, but we have never had any in eleven years.  If our grand kids happen to come out, they have seen them many times.  Then yesterday we went to Oshkosh.  We were on a mission which I will discuss in a future blog.  This is a clue.


Since we were quite close to the St. Vincent de Paul store, we decided to stop in.  I have a few things that I always look for at those stores.  I pick up sugar and cream yarn whenever I see it.  That's the yarn I use in the dishcloths I knit.  I found two balls of the yarn for $.75 for both.  I look for my favorite Vidalia chopper, just in case mine breaks.  I broke it recently and luckily had a spare. http://cabincountess.blogspot.com/2012/12/a-day-of-recovery.html   I look for certain books and anything else that catches my eye.  I've talked about other things I bought in previous blogs.  So yesterday as I was going through the holiday section, this Halloween decoration jumped into my cart.  I know I wasn't going to decorate this year, but I couldn't help myself.  I'm so glad I bought it.  I don't know where I will store it in the off season, but we will find room.

It is a Halloween house made out of grapevine and plywood.  It even lights up.

So because I set this new house up and had to dig out some other decorations,  I did a few more.  I realized that even tho no one may come to my house to see the decor, all of you can see it when you read this blog.
