Crusty Pumpkins

An odd find at the Party City Halloween store. Crusty pumpkins with a tiny LED inside. Made from very thin and fragile styrofoam. You can see the white beads where the paint is missing. Strands of yarn over the eyes, nose, and mouth. Interesting texture. No sign of the pumpkins on the website.

Halloween Cloche at Target

This might be one of the best buys of the season at Target! I bought the big cloche and probably should go back for the smaller version. The dome is plastic and there were little scuffs on all the domes in the store. That does not detract from how amazing they look. Priced at $7 and $10 each.

Classic Halloween Dress

Found on etsy this dress with a classic Halloween print is charming. Reminiscent of the cotton and crepe paper dresses of the 1920s and 1930s.

The same dress style in a black print. A big thank you to Coffin Kitsch for sharing the dresses.

Holographic Lanterns at Walmart

I wanted to share this lantern from Walmart. Good looking lantern for only $9.97. When you switch it on it flickers and reveals holographic Jack-O-Lanterns. There is a green version with bats and holographic skulls and a purple version with crows and holographic ghosts. The purple and green are on sale on the web site only. They were $9.97 at my store. My store only had 6 of the lanterns. My guess is they won't last long.

So many wonderful things out in the stores. Real life is seriously interfering with my Halloween fantasy life. Lots of photos to share when time permits. Yesterday I agreed to a settlement with the insurance company from my 2015 car accident. Treating myself to a few extra Halloween goodies this year!

Magic Cabin

I love the the whimsy and old fashioned decorations you can find at Magic Cabin.

This little gem caught my attention. The entire skeleton for decorating. So many possibilities. Clothes line style with a strand of lights behind. My living room needs a framed backlit skeleton x-ray using remote control battery operated LED's. I really don't need another project on the list. Falling behind on my current Halloween projects.

Lowe's Flaming Pumpkin

My favorite Halloween decoration is back in stock at Lowe's. The Flaming pumpkin. If you go to the website you can see video of one running. The oldest one I bought in 2013 is still running. Bought another in 2014 and yet again in 2015. Set up in a row, we have all 3 out year round on the hearth.

World Market Lanterns

My quest at the store was for this garland. Sadly the pumpkins are not the classic black and orange as shown on the web site. The color is more yellow and day glow.

What I did find, that made me very happy, was this tiny set of lanterns. They were sold out in my store and on the web site last year. Photos of them lit look more yellow. They are indeed orange.

They are only sold as a set on the web site. In store they are sold individually for $6.99 each. My store only had 2 sets of lanterns.

You can find the entire line of Halloween goodies here. There is a 15% off coupon and free shipping at $150 through Monday. Coupon code for online orders is LABORDEAL.
