As usual, I've had my house decorated up for Fall/Halloween for the past few weeks. Here's what I've now determined is acceptable for my household holiday decorating: Sept. 1 out go the pumpkins and ghosts. Nov. 1 here comes Santa Claus. That's my crazy schedule and I'm sticking to it.
As usual, I don't go all out ALL over the house for this time of year. I mainly focus on the center of my home - the living room fire place (although, I make no promises once I finally get a house). There's an even mixture of everything great about this time of year: fall, halloween and a little thankfulness.

One of my favorite things I've done this time around is adding season-specific photos into my regular frames, along with some additional themed frames. Why let those pictures and memories only float around on the facebooks and interwebs (spider pun intended), when they can be displayed for a couple months a year?

There's just a few other things around our place for now. Of course, the cute little pumpkin pillow (that's been around since 2012) has made it's way to the area.
Now that October is just around the corner (let the holiday gift-buying panic begin), I hope you've managed to get a few pumpkins up in your home too!
