Martha Stewart Halloween at Michaels

3 set collection of tableware and decorations this year.

My favorite decoration is this set of 3 Deaths-head moths. They are beautiful. The wings move and the gold highlights catch the light. $12.99 for a set of 3. I'll post pics when they are up in the living room.

JoAnn and Michaels have most of their Halloween out now in my town. Michaels is just missing pricing. Went a little photo crazy with both a new phone and camera. Slowly uploading all of it to the 2018 Halloween Album.

Chalkboard Tombstones

Halloween 2018 is fast approaching and I am having trouble finding motivation this year. We are actively looking for a new house. Found a house, priced out of our budget, with an elementary school at the end of the block! Imagine all the trick or treaters!

Making chalkboard tombstones is on my to do list. Fairly easy to make and the ability to change the sayings is a good idea. Something new for the path to the front porch this year.

Warehouse Prop and Set Dressing Sale

Today we were fortunate enough to attend day 1 of a huge warehouse sale. Liquidating the props, furniture, set dressing, and wardrobe from the show The Librarians and Leverage. You can find more information on the sale here.

There was a newer coffin going for $350 out in front of the warehouse. Sadly, we missed seeing the sarcophagus. The lines were long and the warehouse was 90 degrees. Some very dedicated fans scoring great deals. Many recognizable items from The Librarians. Trying to down size for a move so we didn't bring any treasures home. Some of my pics here. Local new station story about the sale.

Skull Pillow at World Market

This gorgeous skull pillow arrived in the mail today. Its now on clearance for $1.99.

Sadly the pillow on the right is now sold out. Most of the Halloween clearance is not available on the web site. The quality is good and the cover is removable for cleaning.

Dia de los Muertos 2017

I wanted to share the Plaza de la Familia with you at the California Adventure park.

The plaza is sponsored by the Pixar movie Coco, that opens later this month.

There are cards on a table in the Tree of Life pavilion. My father passed away 6 months ago today. Filled out a card for him.

Then you tie the cards to the memories of my family wall. Long cords with dozens of messages tied to each cord. It was very moving to see all the messages.

Thinking of those who have passed on today.

Halloween Parasol

One of my little splurges this Halloween season. From this company.

Over did it on Halloween Spending last year. This year, the few purchases, were hard to narrow down. My fear was this parasol might sell out. Turns out, it did! There was more talk of down sizing and moving to a smaller house. The thought of packing up the current collection of Halloween is a bit daunting.

Happy Halloween
