Halloween is coming up fast and I was out of town last week. Product reviews and photos from my Halloween adventures will be up later this week.

Yet another grocery store find. The witches have really nice faces. There is an LED in the orb. Might bring a battery in to see what they look like lit up. Not buying much this year. There are no must haves and I went over budget last year!
On the road all of next week. Barely started getting the decorations up. It will be a rush to get to the pumpkin patch and decorate this year.

The snake candleholders were out of stock in my store. A friend mailed the set to me. They are rather spectacular for only $5. The apothecary bottles were in stock. Not the best photo. Bone Powder and Bat's blood.
The table cloth was pretty. My previous experience with Target tablecloths is they fade considerably when washed. The tablecloth is on my post Halloween sale list. Several things from the web site did not impress me up close.

We spent the last few days on the road driving my late fathers truck from California to sell up here in Oregon. We found Halloween along the way. Albertsons grocery store with giant ceramic Halloween figures. The second set of very heavy ceramics was up on top of the frozen food!

One of my favorite decorations from JoAnn this year. The LED Metal Cat Bones sign can be found here.
Brought this trio home. Set them up in the entry way to get a better photo. It would be easy to paste new images on these stands. The stands are listed individually on the web site.
The lanterns were in the Home Decorators line on the Home Depot web site last year.
Love this new print for 2017.

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.

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.

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!

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.
