russ clove decorates the clove house for halloween or our very own holiday outdoor decor enthusiast




i think it would be an extreme understatement to say that we are obsessed with our halloween decorations here at the clove casa.









russ clove has a secret or not so secret love of decorating the outside of the house for the holidays and i absolutely adore that about him.  we all anticipate this time of the year at the clove house because people drive up our street from near and far to look at our skeleton head.  we all love it, of course. we might be secret or not so secret holiday outdoor decor enthusiasts.

Love. The. Seasonals! I am so glad I followed you to the dark side (more than once I might add) and started decorating for Halloween! It just doesn't get any better than orange and black!

Ok, those two new decorations ARE GREAT!!! I am soo envious. I will be right next to you trying to sell my decorations for some food and water! ::sad, I know::

Pedaling said...

and i love the inner decor as well!

Love it all! You must have a great DH-mine would have me hanging over the front door if I had all that stuff!
I digress...I LOVE halloween decorations! For about 4 years my BFF and I had a Halloween party with a pot luck dinner before hand and games for the kids, cake walk, a pinata, and had games and candy for all the kids. It was so sweet! Everyone in costume...we went all OUT! And boy did I have the decorations...good news was the whole basement of her house was decorated and he had NO idea what stuff belonged to me! We moved and I had to sell it to eat! (jk!)
At any rate, your blog...just rocks my world! I LOVE IT ALL! Wish I lived next door! :-)

Okay. Where did you get that skeleton door hugger?? I must get me one. I love your illness, and I think it's important to have seasonals in your food storage. And lots and lots of shoes.

Thanks for the shout-out.

It is so awesome that you do it...I just only have the energy every third year or so.

Megal said...

your house looks fantastic as always. oh so festive and "spooky." I am sure all the kids in the neighborhood are crying to their moms about wanting to be like the cloves.

I know I'm not supposed to covet...but you are really pushing my limits this morning. Fall/Halloween is my favorite time to decorate for. I just wish I could afford it!!! Lookin' awesome!

I love you! Yes,.....I love you! A girl after my own cortozone!! Look at all that black, orange and purple! YOu are truly Queen of Halloween! I haven't quite got to my exterior yet because I don't want to completely freak out my neighbors into thinking they have to have their stuff out. Oh hell, who do I care? I'm doing it! I want that big flippin spider!

A girl after my own heart...love the seasonals, your obsession, Grandin Road (most awesomest catalog out there) all your fabulous decor and most of all the outdoor stuff! It rocks and you really know how to junk it up!

Trina said...

Fabulous! I love it.
Halloween is my favorite, too. I busted out the decorations last week. Makes me very, very happy.

Erin said...

Wow. Is your house the one everyone gets really excited to come to on Halloween because you have cool spooky music playing AND you give out full-size candy bars? And what's your address again? I'll be there :)

Vanessa said...

You do have a good husband! mine refuses to hang Christmas lights.

rachel said...

I am just waiting for my hubby to hang me up some shelves so I can bust out all the decor....I love decorating for Halloween too! So much fun...

tiburon said...

Well, thanks to you and Amy I am not putting Halloween decorations up this year. Cause i would just look like the dollar store of Halloween decor.

Sooooo sad.

You do it right. As usual.

For someone who LOVES Halloween I have crappy decorations! Your house looks great & I would totally trade you a santa for some T's.

Kristina P. said...

Your house looks so cute! The only holiday I decorate for is Christmas, which I really got into last year.

I really need a cool Halloween party to go to this year. I have the perfect costume for us!

Want to throw one? ;)

Holly H. said...

The doorway skeleton is the cutest thing I've seen! And... you DO have a sickneess and I LOVE it!

Christie said...

Yep - you're sick! I want to know where you find room to store all that stuff!

Whitney R said...

Wow. I love the skull and skeleton hands. Love it.

I'm currently trying to add to my very very small (3 items, wait I made a star 4 items) haloween/fall collection.

Marci said...

Russ rules!!
You know I love it ALL!!

kami @ nobiggie.net said...

So fun!! I love them both...inside and out. I am the same way about Hallowwen. We are putting all of you smaller spiders up all over our house this weekend. Halloween decor is so fun!

Elisa said...

Your decorations rock. I like decorations, but you have to put them away.

I want an invention where you drop and drag your decorations with your computer mouse to put them away. Until that day, decorations get thee hence!

Physcokity said...

I like your two new additions. Cool but super creepy at night! =|

Omgirl said...

I only decorate for two holidays: Christmas and Halloween. I absolutely LOVE to decorate for Halloween. And seeing your great decor has soon inpsired me to take it up a notch. (Only I have to put it all up and take it all down myself, which makes buying more stuff it way lamer).

Jod Jas Curtis said...

samiam said...

I knew that I liked you! Fall and Halloween are the best. My high school colors were Black and Orange, it was like Halloween all year long!!!

Super Happy Girl said...

You are the Queen of Halloween.

I want to trick-or-treat at your house.

CoLiE-O said...
