Extreme Decorating

 Somewhere south of East Gwillimbury

One house and fenced-in yard. Really. Some of you might think this is over-the top, but I think this is...er, over the top too.  However I do confess I really did want to photograph it and...

 A few closer ups

 create a mosaic of some of the elements.

 Porch above the front entrance

Someone is crazy about Halloween, dontcha think?

HI EG I have to confess that I think it is tacky and ghastly however worthy of a photo shot.

Nancy said...

It's way over the top, and I can't imagine doing that to my home, but I can see why you wanted to photograph it. And you photographed it well.

William Kendall said...

To say it's over the top is like calling Lake Ontario a pond!

Makes for good photographing material though!

eileeninmd said...

I think it is neat to see all these decorations. Some people really know how to decorate and have fun. Thanks for sharing, have a happy week!

Revrunner said...

Yep, that's a lot of stuff.

We always find reasons to enjoy our lives.

Isn't it fun? We passed a place with extreme decorations. I just don't do i anymore. We don't get kids.
I love your photos, though.
Cheers from Cottage Country Ontario , ON, Canada!

Sandra said...

beyond extreme to me.. i like the cat in the last shot and the headeless horseman on the balcony... thanks for sharing this, i have never seen anything like this one..

Joyful said...

Wow! I would say that is over the top. Everything is so jumbled together that I can barely make out what is there. No doubt you had fun trying to photograph it all.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Too much for me,that's for sure.

Jack said...

I get a laugh out of things like this. There are some Halloween nuts in Connecticut, too, but I have yet to see any down here in Naples.

A Garden of Threads said...

Wow!!! Can't think of anything else to say:)

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

They are having fun...and like you said, perfect for you to photograph! They make a fun mosaic! Hugs!

Stephanie said...

Looks kinda tacky. Sometimes less is more. Nice mosaic.

Lavender Cottage said...

Overkill comes to mind. Makes for a fun mosaic though.

Andy said...

That is going to be one cool place on Halloween eve.

Pamela Gordon said...

Definitely overkill. Colourful overkill.

Randy said...

That is one expensive display.

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Big sale at Walmart, eh?

Our photos said...

I would say that is over the top!
But you have some nice pictures of it.
Greetings, RW & SK

Karen said...

Oh my... Photo op of course, I'd have done the same!

Mersad said...

They really take Halloween very seriously! :)

Judy said...

Might be over the top, but I prefer it to the cemeteries that so many people create in their yards...

genie said...

I bet is was great fun putting it all out and about, but cleaning it up and packing it away is going to be a real pain in the back, The is definitely over the top decoration but oh, so cute,

Lowell said...

It's a great exhibit to take pictures of. Other than that, it's quite insane…some people have too much time on their hands. :))

see you there! said...

Wow! I went out walking in our neighborhood yesterday looking for Halloween decorations and didn't find a thing... a pumpkin on a porch or two but that was it.

Wowsers... over the top!

Gail Dixon (LaBelle) said...

Yikes...a little cra-cra indeed! You got some great photos out of it!

Nicki said...

I'd say they can barely contain their holiday spirit. Fun!

Rose said...

Can you just imagine getting all that stuff set up??? And where would you put it after you took it down. I will admit I would have been snapping like mad and Lorelei would have loved it.

Small City Scenes said...

I'd say it was a little overdone. MB

edenhills said...

It might be excessive, but it's pretty awesome too!

Carol Z said...

This is wild and so over the top, but I'd be running over with a camera, too.

kelley jensen said...

Andrew Fulton said...

Wonderful ... soooo! over the top but funny to see.

Sylvia K said...

Oh, what a hoot -- a Halloween Hoot at that!! That is colorful, holiday fun!! They probably had more fun with it than the people who'll stop by!! I love it! Thanks for sharing, EG!! Have a great week!

Cynthia said...

Oh, my goodness. And I thought my neighbors were over the top!

Photo Cache said...

it's really nice that some people really go out with decorations.

Carol L McKenna said...

Fun60 said...

Over the top seems a bit of an understatement!

ladyfi said...

Wow - someone like Halloween!

Hanne Bente said...

It's what I call Halloween ..... the "fun practice" has also come to Denmark. Wish you a good day / good new week :) Hanne Bente

Bill Nicholls said...

You hav eto say that is really going to town, mind you people in this country do it for Christmas so why not

Faye said...

Suppose every community has that one place where more is more! I give them credit for enthusiasm, but I'll bet the neighbors dread each holiday. Do you know if they do the same for other holidays?

Sue said...

Wowza. That's some Halloweening!
