I am thankful today for many things including good friends. We are off for a waterfront walk on this cold sunny day. Then we watch the parade while making the mashed potatoes and the Tofurky. Hope you all have a warm food filled day with those you love.

Vintage Look Photos
Took this image at a Christmas festival in London last year. Love what the site did to this carousel image. All the images get upload to Snapfish.com to make prints. The goal, one day, is to make a spooky distressed photo album to house all the Halloween images.

I have a little space on the sideboard where the owls live. Below I have the faux mercury glass stuff.
In the 75% off pile at the grocery store I find this owl label bottle. Great little addition for the display.
There is battery compartment so I pop in the batteries and it turns in to Disco Owl!
Tiny strand of LED's that flashes and changes color. Its blinding!

Trying something new this year for storage. I didn't buy much at the post Halloween sales. It is still hard to remember, when the next Halloween rolls around, what I bought and where it went! This little batch might be part of next years mantel display. Took a photo on the bin lid where this lot is stored. This year the bins get labeled with a number. On flickr, the photo gets the bin number added to it.
Started this process with the fabric and trim in my collection. Next step will be assigning bin numbers to photos. Good project for the winter months.

Halloween Decor Tape
Found this interesting decor tape at Joann on clearance. Its thick tape and at 4 inches wide might be cool for decorations or props. Its sold out for this year. Plan keep an eye out for this next year.

Fern was helping put away the Halloween.
Halloween in the stores was well picked over long before the post Halloween sales. Michaels was 70 percent off the week of Halloween. Found this cute frame missing its backing for only a $1.
Felt bad for people showing up the day before Halloween to find the shelves picked bare. Christmas was everywhere having squeezed out the Halloween to a discount tables. Its been a different game the last few years with prices cut to at least 50% before Halloween.
The yard is done. The indoor decor takes me a lot longer to put away. Started making plans for next years decor. I think Mr. Scarecrow needs a new outfit and possibly a dog. A horse would be better but we would need a lot more sticks!
Found today at Market for the Strange in Salem, Oregon. The artist is TransinThesis only the pumpkin heads are not current...
