I am generally not very into Halloween, but I now live with candy addicts who love just about everything about Halloween – pumpkins, carving, dressing up, spooky movies, and, yes, candy! I think I’m the only one though who cares about tasteful Halloween decorations, and nobody should be too surprised to see a few black and white decorations – instead of orange – pop up at my house this month.
It’s only a couple of weeks until Halloween, which is about the time that I’m ready to start thinking about it. Today’s two-of-a-kind has a Halloween flavour to it.

My Halloween (and fall decor for that matter) consists of a lone pumpkin by my front door. It’s simple, classic, and easy. This year, I’ve doubled up on my decor; I’ve added a boo-boo-boo garland to my door to welcome the trick-or-treaters. Wild, I know! I picked it up from Michaels for only a couple of dollars. I was actually impressed (and slightly overwhelmed) by the selection of Halloween decorations at the store. Everything was 50% when I was there last week, and if I really loved Halloween, I would have bought quite a bit. (I was sort of close to buying a skull cake pan mold…I thought it might look neat drenched in white icing.)
