I LOVE decorating for fall!!!
And I am a die-hard, don’t rush the seasons, kind-of-girl.
This has been a hard, hot summer…….
And yes, I am now an official-season-rusher.
Do you decorate heavily for Halloween?
Maybe it’s my legalistic upbringing……but I never really have.
Here is where I self-counseled myself today and came up with my self-diagnosis of my lack of Halloween Decor.I have a self-doctorate in Psychology in case you wondered.
My diagnosis as to why I do NOT decorate for Halloween:
My kids are older……we are in the country, so therefore, there are NO trick-or-treaters….
I mean, think about it…..If I just decorate with plain fall decor, it covers Halloween, Thanksgiving and Fall.
That is why I do not decorate for Halloween.
I won’t go to Hell.
This is where blogging can be bad.
The Halloween decor is soooooo cute that I keep seeing on other people’s blogs or on Pinterest.
I thought this was such a neat twist to Halloween decor!
Don’t you love it!
Technically, it’s not really Halloween’ish……
I wouldn’t go to Hell!
Just kidding for my literal friends.
I’m not going to Hell.
But all of my Halloween decor issues aside……
MMS , “Ichabad” pumpkin caught my eye…..
And I copied it…..
I loved this style of decorating!
I love the old classics. I knew my daughter and Romeo’s daughter would love it and appreciate it as well.
I just eyeballed her pumpkin, which will show inÂ my end result, but in getting her link today….I found out she had a HGTVÂ tutorial.
I’m a dork.
But that’s my job. I screw up, then you won’t.
Now, remember where I said….let me screw up first?
Here you go!
Now, are you saying to yourself as I did…..
You spell “Icahabad” with an “a” at the end?
Well, if you are like me, then you scratch your head and say……”If MMS does…then I do”.
If you are still like me, then you keep looking at her picture, then my picture,Â to make sure you see two a’s…..you reference the tutorial, that she did on the blog “dreamy whites”, .where it shows two a’s….and you think it must be right.
But when you follow the link I found to her HGTV tutorial today……
IT shows an “o”.
And a different “I”.
I am now going to vomit.
My pumpkin is plastic, like rubber…..I am going to see if I can get my “mis-spelled pumpkin” corrected…….I am sure I can rig something up…but I wanted to make sure you follow the HGTV tutorial.
It has a different spelling.
I wonder why it originally had an “a”. I need to ask but haven’t had a chance to email MMS. I shall get to the bottom of this!
Until then, just enjoy this half of my pumpkin.
Hey….you don’t think???
Umm…..it’s not because I decided to decorate Halloweenish is it ????
Cursed from the start?
Don’t tell my mother, she would swear this is why it happened.
~ Gulp ~
Anyone have any ideas about the two spellings?
Was it just my eyes playing tricks on me??
Ewwwww….tricks…as in “trick” or “treat” ????????!!!!!
