Hallmark My Pet Ghost

$9.95 at Hallmark or $9.45 at Walmart. 3 different ghosts. My favorite is Julian Hijinks. Found video on youtube of Julian. Good sound and cute design so one had to come home with me today.

Halloween Wiccan Lace Collection

Available only on the Target web site. Good looking dishes. There was a set of chili bowls that look like giant mugs that sadly seem to be sold out. I was in the store tonight and wasn't all that excited by the selection.

Beach Bum

Last week with a million projects in the works I decide to go to the Oregon coast. My spouse had a conference to attend so I rented a condo on the beach! Brought my sewing projects and cut out a skeleton applique project while watching the kites fly on the beach. A brief yet magical side trip to the Oregon Coast Aquarium. He was trying out a new camera and got this beautiful Octopus image. Now I am in full panic mode to get costume stuff done in time for Steamcon and Halloween!

Good Things-Halloween 2012

13 inch lantern has glass panels and was found at TJMaxx today for $14.99. The pumpkin was picked last night from the upper patch. Need to harvest its friends this weekend. The leaves are dying back as the powdery mildew wins the battle.

Skull Decorative Boxes

In the Martha Stewart Halloween line I found this wonderful set of paper mache candy boxes. Purchased for future use in costuming and props. The boxes are light and perfect for a hat or staff topper.

Beistle Reproductions Halloween 2012

A little back story on Beistle decorations. When I had the Halloween business we carried what I called the walking witch. She was so popular we couldn't keep her in stock. She is one of my favorite decorations and Beistle re-released her this year!
After years of putting up with scary contemporary designs Beistle is finally doing what they do best bringing back the classics.
Placed my order at the Vintage Halloween Store yesterday. As soon as I have the items in my hands there will be a review.
