Crystal Seer Matchbox

Found this wonderful box of matches at a health food store last night. The graphics are beautiful. Different image of Alexander the Seer on each side. Great inexpensive display piece for a fortune tellers or magicians display. It blends really well with my vintage pieces.

Update: The pillows are now one penny!

The after Halloween Sales

This cute little head is on a spring and was bobbing all the way down the road. It made me happy watching the people behind me in traffic smile.

The pair was irresistible on 70% clearance. The baby cat might hang out in the living room year round.

The lanterns are color changing with a remote control and timer. At only $2 they jumped in my cart. The skull bottle was a $1. Two damask tablecloths at 60 X 102 inches. $3 each. The table clothes might turn in to yardage for a costume. All found at Fred Meyer owned by Kroger. The down side is I have to find somewhere to store the latest swag.


More recycled materials for the bookcase this year. The only new items were the the Witches Garden sign and the skeletal taper candles. The purple glow in the back ground is the infinity bat light on the other side of the wall.

The satin glass cherubic bust is still one of my favorite gifts from my husband. Added a second red flicker light this year. Love it with an even brighter evil red glow. The entire Halloween 2018 photo album is here.

Antiques Roadshow Kooky & Spooky episode

Weller Dickens Ware Skull Humidor, ca. 1905

If you missed the Kooky & Spooky episode of Antiques Roadshow you can watch it on the web site. Items featured from previous episodes with updated prices.

There was so much good October programming I am still trying to catch up with viewing recorded episodes. We watched Sabrina and The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix. A few nit picky complaints about both series only we still enjoyed both shows.

The mantel and the bookcase in the living room were mostly made up of items on hand. The only new items on the mantel were the palmistry hand and the Tarot pillar candle. The fabric for the swag is off an old bolt of fabric from Bethany Lowe.

The 2 suitcases are reproductions used for displaying merchandise. Part of a set of 4 that we used on the road for displays at live shows. That old lamp shade may or may not be restored. The longer it sits around the more I Love the skeletal carcass. Fortune telling books and games from my collection.

The little glass Jack-O-Lanterns on the porch were a dollar store find a few years back.


We set a record with 8 kids trick or treating this year! Better visibility from the road with the projections on the house. A small Gryffindor wizard, with owl, and her mum were my favorites. They both asked about every single decoration outside.

My husband took the camera to work with the Halloween photos on the memory card. Got my pics back today!
