Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween! Halloween is fun to celebrate at our 1886 Queen Anne Victorian home.

I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween!

We were blessed with fantastic weather, given the fact that the last 2 Halloweens, there has been snow!

I don’t go crazy on Halloween decorations…especially “creepy” ones. My hand painted sign and handmade ghosts are scary enough for me!

Our street, that is lined with 100+ year old historical houses, is a hot spot for trick-or-treating every year.

As I mentioned, I designed and painted this 4 foot x 4 foot sign! This is the largest sign I’ve made to date. I actually had it inside last year on my mantle, but I felt it was better suited for outside this year.

I think it should go without saying, that if you own a 135 year old house, it should be mandatory to dress up as an old lady or man! I wore a more casual dress this year than in years past.

My sweet neighbor snapped this photo of me…

And just in case you are all super jealous of my dress, guess what? You can actually buy this at Target now, in the REGULAR dress section!! HAHAHA! I’m not kidding! Target actually has a ton of vintage dresses to choose from! Let’s all bring back the styles of the 1800s!!

Once the sun set, the house really started to “play its part!” I could totally forgo all decorations – old houses always look creepy at night!

…and seriously, cell phones take such amazing night photos!…
