Martha Stewart Halloween at JoAnn

On the hunt for a specific shade of grey fabric last week at several JoAnn Fabric stores. Noticed the Halloween selection varied considerably store to store. If the various store employees compare stories-the crazy lady in the big black and white hat, playing with all the Halloween goodies, must come up.

Halloween updates and plans

So many goodies in the stores right now. Pier One has several Day of the Dead pieces this year that are well done. Going to try and get more pics up this week.

The pumpkin patch is losing the battle to powdery mildew. My 10+ pound pumpkins are almost completely orange. Picking will probably be in 2 weeks. Earliest pumpkin harvest ever. Guess the super high temps were good for pumpkins.

We collected branches tonight from a major park cleaning project across the street. Mr. Old Fashion Halloween is going to build a scarecrow for me. We celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary this month. Still spooky after all of these years.

Plans have been made to go to Disneyland for Mickey's Halloween Party mid October. Still trying to come up with costumes that can be worn all over the park and on rides for 8 hours. Warm weather friendly is another requirement.

Halloween at Costco

Not pictured is a skeletal dog with glowing red eyes. There were 3 huge racks of mostly little girls costumes. A fairy princess explosion. No mega candy bags yet.

More from Michaels

Summer clearance is still in full swing so all the Halloween is up against a side wall at my store. Its very dramatic. The foam skulls next to the regular foam heads was a nice surprise. $7.99 and Halloween is not on sale so you can use the 50% off one item coupons found online.

Like last year, I am keeping a Halloween album over on Flickr if you want to see more.

GrandinRoad Halloween

My GrandinRoad catalog arrived this week. New Halloween items are being added to the web site.

Love this skeleton poncho. It looks fabulous just hanging on the dress form.

There is a matching wreath to go with this bust.

I want to make little costumes for these guys.
