Busy time of year!

Running amuck trying to get everything up and done so I can enjoy the rest of the season. Lanterns went up in the foyer tonight. This beauty is an older lantern that was sold at The Vintage Halloween store.

Spent saturday braiding the front porch garland. This is the big section across the front of the porch. Ornament garland, festooning, and lights. Big project that is up now. Ran out of festooning and will finish the light garlands hopefully tomorrow.

Work in progress. Really hope it gets done this weekend.

Etsy artist Nightmerriment. Creates these amazing twig like poppets and larger creatures. I was fortunate to buy the witch and death only the pumpkin head I wanted sold out. No problem, the artist made another one for me. Take a look at the sold section and you can put in a custom request.

Such a mischievous grin! The unique materials used makes each poppet one of a kind.

The Gift Shop

The gift shop attached to the Ace Hardware store has fall and Halloween out. The gal at the shop said more Halloween is on the way.

I was afraid to ask how much is this moon with cat? Trying to behave myself.

The skeleton boys are on a spring they bobble nicely.

Mondays am I right?

The only thing I brought home was the tiny wings spread bat plate.

Fred Meyer Halloween

Halloween inventory is going out earlier than usual with the back to school supplies. This blow mold black cat with glowing eyes was one of my favorite items.

The cheerful terra cotta pumpkins are starting to make an appearance.

A different take on the hands with an eye in the plam that has a color changing LED.

Promising collection this year. Looking forward to the towels and dishes.

More Lowe's

Love the old fashioned blow mold lights and this more serious looking pair.

Lowe's version of the giant skeleton is dressed as a mummy. That reminds me the giant skeletons from Home Depot were spotted on top shleves, still in pallet wrap, waiting to be stocked. Looks like my store has 6.

The flame tiki torches are back and the more sinister looking pumpkins. The mouth opening is a little too big on the tall pumpkins and you see the LED. If I wanted one more project I'd put diffusion or scrim behind the eyes, nose, and mouth.

Huge collection of Nightmare Before Christmas filling almost 2 giant sections.The carvable foam pumpkins are very spendy this year. Very happy I bought extra last year on sale!

Lowe's is selling Haunted Mansion Halloween quickly. The Madame Leota tombstone hubby sent me a photo of yesterday was sold out today. Can't find any of the merchandise on the website.

When you press the skull button it lights up and plays Grim Grinning Ghosts!

A lot of fun stuff this year. More pics tomorrow. The Haloween 2022 photo album is here.

My store had some great Katherine's Collection pieces like this pumpkin. Like all of the line it is spendy at $129.00 or it would have come home with me. This guy would be great in a shop window display.

Struggled with wanting to get the framed fairy. I behaved myself and didn't buy anything at HomeGoods today.

Love this table runner and Psychic Reading box.
