Williams Sonoma Vintage Style

I kept waiting for Williams Sonoma to add more to the Halloween Collection this year. The vintage style dishes, spatulas, apron, and linens are really nice.

The food section has some new edibles this year. This chocolate set and this chocolate set have lovey printed images. I have this illusion about making exotic Halloween treats every year. The reality is ordering pizza so I have enough time light all the candles, Jack-O-Lanterns, and plug in lights.

Spirit Halloween Store Open

Our town is eclipse central. Traffic is supposed to be so bad several companies decided to close on Monday. Much to my surprise, The Spirit Halloween Store was open!

Bought this cute sign.

The mantle scarf also came home with me. I didn't see it on the web site. Tacked it on my mantle so you can see what it looks like. A solid fabric behind it will really make it pop.

Halloween Boo Box Subscription

This year, the Vintage Halloween Store is offering a Boo Box Subscription starting on September 1st. Buy one box or the entire season subscription. I was lucky enough to get a preview Boo Box!

The boxes are black with a vintage Halloween style mailing label. Very cool presentation. Inside the orange and black tissue paper there are many goodies.

Boxes contain random contents with a Vintage Halloween flair. Mine included this adorable tea towel.

The rest of the items were a set of vintage style Halloween tags, a "Don't make me flip my witch switch" notebook, a glitter Happy Halloween sign, a Bethany Lowe Bloom ceramic pin, and a vintage style metal witch pin. A card with a festive fortune and spooktacular stunt came with the box as well.

My mail service lady asked me about the Boo box. She wants to get a subscription for her daughter-in-law who was born in October. She loves Halloween and they are running out of creative ides for gifts. I thought this was a clever concept. Great idea for Halloween gift swaps. I must admit, it was very exciting to get a little black box full of treats in the mail!

Michael's Halloween

Local store was filling the front corner with Halloween. Larger selection and more variety this year. We were rather fond of, Rat-On-A-Stick. In the floral arranging category.

All this years photos will eventually be in the Halloween 2017 album on Flickr.

Kohl's Halloween Decor

Soft goods were out at my local Kohl's and the pillows are 50% off. You can see the entire line here. The table runner and matching placements, not on the web site, have tiny holographic glitter stars.

Easing in to Halloween 2017

Sorry about the previous entry before saying, welcome to Halloween 2017!
The grave of Thomas Riddell. Greyfriars Kirkyard. We traveled to Edinburgh, Scotland in April. A geeky highlight was looking for the gravestones that inspired J.K Rowling while she was writing the Harry Potter books. Located in Greyfriars Kirkyard.

In May, my father passed away in CA. The funeral home shipped his cremains to me in Oregon.

First time I had seen one of these stickers. So, naturally, I took a photo to use for Halloween decor.

The Bones

Halloween is creeping in to stores. JoAnn had bones and pumpkins out last week.
