I don't really have anything out just yet, but I plan to begin putting things out little by little around the last week of September.

I have! I have! I bought a great candelabra at a thrift store and have black tapers in it and my stuffed spiders on the mantle with my witch books, my witch bottles are on my fridge, along with my 'pickled head' prop. I'm going to print some spooky photos to hang on the entryway wall today...more is coming in as soon as I turn the calender over to Sept. August is pushing it even for me! ;)

I just finished making a prefabbed boarded up window deal that I just hang up over the existing window frme. Anyway, the neighbors were giving me really strange looks as I was trying it out. I think even my wife, who enjoys what I do to the house, would not take kindly to me starting to decorate two months before Halloween. One month, very acceptable, but two... :rolleyes:

Damn Max, well at least you don't have to mow your backyard.

Do you consider "getting stuff out of the attic and stringing it all over the house" decorating? If so, then I have started.

Other than the stuff that stays up all the time, the new purchases are up. Soon... very soon.

That is the greatest justification in my books. For the month of October, I dont mow my front lawn so that the yard has a more abandoned look to it (better for the graveyard). And now that my yard is big enough that it takes me almost two hours to edge and mow just the front, I am really enjoying the justification!! Whoo-hoo bring on the month of October! :D

I am setting up my Lemax Spooky Town this weekend. I wanted it out early enough to enjoy it but not too early that I get sick of it.
I have a couple things out that I collect over the year.. they just stay out then after Halloween, it ALL goes away and I start fresh.
Currently I have my spooky candle holder with bleeding taper candles in it. A couple of bloody hand prints on mirrors and window, A spider candle holder any my cauldron in the basement as I just havnt figured out its "place" in storage yet.
My boardedup window for my bedroom is in the middle of the living room currently adn I will be trying it out tongiht to make sure its all good.
Other than that, the real decorating will wait till Oct 1 weekend.

For me anyway....

I know I stand the chance of being booted off this site but at this point in the year, the only thing I can get by my non-Halloween-loving Husband (forgot to ask that question before falling in love) is scarecrows, bales of straw, corn stalkes, and bats. I know its lame but by the middle of September, I'll have following eye portraits hanging in the living room, several corpses bluckies laying aorund and my coven of witches will make their migration from the basement...(I only have one of them done right now!)

I have replaced some of the year round pictures and other wall decor for Halloween stuff. I've even been working on the inside of the shed for a few weeks now. So, I guess you could say I've started my decorating. :D

That's cool Zombie-F. I might just start putting out cob webs and all that this weekend I dont know. Kind of early, but I dont care. I think it's best to start early as possible, to fully enjoy the whole holiday.
