Halloween mood counter 2021!

 Halloween mood counter 2021!

One of my ALL time favorite things about Halloween is decorating. I usually start in late August. Ever since I was a kid, this was one of my favorite things about the Fall. In the last several years, I've taken a page out of Mr. Dinosaur Dracula, and started making Halloween "mood" tables. Basically you take a flat surface, and decorate it with some of your favorite Halloween decorations, horror figures, movies, etc. So  if somebody was to look at it, they would see basically what the inside of your brain around this spooky season would look like! 

I think Matt was brilliant thinking this up, and I've been doing this for the past few years, and totally getting a kick out of other fellow Blogger's Halloween themed tables! For more killer Halloween themed fun, head on over to Dinosaur Dracula. I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that Matt's blog is one of my all time favorites, and I love watching his Youtube channel around this time of year!

In the past few years I've been decorating tables, jammed packed with glitter pumpkins, action figures, laserdisc, VHS tapes, and basically anything that makes me think of this truly magical time of the year. This year I decorated a counter in my kitchen, that I usually reserve for holiday decorations. For the past several months before hand I got lazy, so for the entire summer it was decorated with my Showdown In Little Tokyo collection. Once late August hit, I got off my ass and covered the entire counter with items from my collection downstairs, even picking up a few new items to add on, and every time I enter my kitchen. to pour myself a cup of coffee, I'm able to stare at a sight so beautiful, it's almost as lovely as a sunrise. (collectors get it)
