Visited the local Michael’s arts and craft store this weekend, and found a few Halloween items on the shelf.
Hobby Lobby arts and crafts stores have gotten an early start with the fall merchandise this year. Of special interest may be the Funkin brand foam pumpkins.

So, on to the pictures!
For the past few weeks, I’ve been pulling decorations out of the attic and trying to find time to put everything up before the big night. One of the first things to go up were the window decorations.
