    Guess how many handmade Halloween decorations are in my home?

    Here are a couple photos of some of my favorite Halloween quilts I've made! Some are crafty type of quilts.

    (It's my favorite holiday to decorate...just counted the other day b/c that is one of our trivia questions at our family Halloween party tomorrow night.)
    How many handmade Halloween decorations does Aunt Judi have in her home? answer... 97
    Mostly dolls (ghosts, Franks, pumpkins, witches, bats, dracula's and pillows)- I sold crafts throughout the US for 20 years - so that explains why I have so many... LOL
    Plus Halloween is my favorite time of the year to decorate - perhaps its the colors... Keep in mind - I have a big home... and a big family... the kids love it - I don't like that scary stuff - just the fun cute scary kind of stuff...
    Anyway just thought this would be something fun to share with everyone...

    Happy Halloween!

    What a beautiful collection! The handmade crafts mean so much more than the store bought ones. I decorated for years just like that, for the kids, and now they are gone and I have found other things to do instead of decorating for hubby and I. I do put a few things up but not nearly as many as I used to. Enjoy it all now while you can. You have some great ideas.

    They all are my patterns except for Frankenstein. I made him so long ago (like 20 years) I even forget where I got it from. And the pumpkinman I saw in a magazine years ago and then tried to remember what it was when I ran home and made it. LOL... The skeleton and cats quilt my daughter drew when she was in 6th grade to make the quilt. Now she is 25 and a costume designer... Thanks so much, I'm glad you enjoyed them.

    My oldest daughter really gets into decorating for Halloween, too. She woul love your decorations. I don't think I have anything anymore that is Halloween except some earrings that I frequently forget about. Your decorations are really cute.

    Just wanted to update everyone...
    So last night was the Halloween party on October 31st Halloween night.
    All family members guessed anywhere from 49 to 100.
    My husband who was last to guess, his answer was TOO MANY... (haha - he's so funny isn't he?)
    Then I said no really pick a number and he said 27 - so we all laughed b/c that number was so low, and then he said OK 497!!!
    So what does that tell you - he doesn't really look at our decorations...LOL
    Anyway, we had a winner, and we had a great night carving pumpkins together as a family!
