The light up coffin sign is one my favorites this year.

As a bonus an employee had left the shelf display map under some trays. I had a great time playing with all the goodies and taking close to 50 photos. More photos of Michaels are still going up at my 2016 Halloween Album.

Haunted House Table Runner at Sur La Table

What I like about this felt table runner is the many decorating possibilities. Sewing it on the edge of a plain tablecloth to use as a border. Cutting it up in to sections and wrapping around large vases. Wrapped around clear containers with a candle to cast haunted house patterns on a wall. Hanging the runner as a banner on the front of a fireplace mantle or along the back of the mantle.

Several Halloween items along with the runner can be found here.

Halloween 2016

My JoAnn store has started squeezing summer out and filling the shelves and end caps with fall and Halloween. The pillows this year have lovely graphics. The gold really stands out against the black fabric.

There at least 5 Nightmare Before Christmas theme fabrics this year.

Available on the web site here.

I am late to the party this year with a very good excuse. In a whirlwind 4 week period I was diagnosed with early stage colon cancer, had surgery, and found out it had not spread to the lymph nodes. 2 weeks since surgery today. Feeling very grateful and excited for Halloween this year!

During my recovery we watched Stranger Things on Netflix. Highly recommended for a great homage to 1980s horror movies.
