I found these old cardboard Halloween decorations the other day in the back of a closet at my mother's house.
I can't tell you how happy they make me.
I have them hanging up in my little apartment now. I remember them hanging up in the front windows every year, usually with some black and orange crepe paper streamers here and there.
A big bowl of candy sat on the credenza in the hall.
Halloween was always my favorite holiday growing up. (Still is.)
My favorite was always the articulated cat, with the dapper monocled Mr. Cat coming in a close second.
(uh...can we say gay?)
