SHOW & TELL


More participants here

Before I started blogging in 2006, I had never payed attention to Halloween. Apparently it slowly moved into Belgium only from 1999 on. (see my post below) Now the malls and shops are full of Halloween decorations and cities organize Halloween festivals and people private parties. Not as much as in the States but at least a little.

I liked the decorations I saw on the American blogs so much, that I started to buy some witches and other little cute Halloween things and decorated our living room and the entrance. My friends found this wonderful and love to come to see how I decorate each year. We usually have a little drink together for Halloween too.

and here is my decoration this year.




you can biggify !

At the entrance you are greated by the big witch and my little Halloween basket. The huge spider on the left is sitting on the wooden cat, I had to put it in a more discrete place as it invites women to screem usually ! I have to admit it is particularly ugly.

I used to decorate my home and fix some Halloween dinner when my daughter was a kid to enjoy her and her friends (at a time when no one knew about it around here). Now that my daughter is grown up and going out with friends to celebrate Halloween I don't decorate anymore, but I feel like doing it again sometime.
Thanks for sharing how you change the look of your home this time of the year.

Yes, I used to decorate when Mandy and Katie were small. Now I do buy some candy for the kids in our neighborhood, but that's it.

You and your cats are always a great combination - also in this season :-)

Btw1: I'm sorry I have not been around that much lately, but have been working hard to find a way so that we could meet. Now It's official and I've planned hard for it: Oslo Blog Gathering 2010 - I do hope you can come and also encourage your other blog friends to participate!

Btw2: I have a meeting again in Brussels in November and some extra time the 20th. Care for a meeting?

Enjoy!

I love that big witch by the entrance! I don't have many witches... I need to get more. LOL! I really DON'T need to get more -- usually I don't even decorate for Halloween. But I will this year -- for Luz -- and Jientje!

Thinking of the commercialization of Halloween as an American export made me laugh. No wonder the world thinks Americans are a bit off. I better go find my pumpkin lights....

Bravo Gattina!
You did a great job this year still!
I imagine the big fest it must be US! Would want to live it there one day!
