The New Digs

We noticed that every house we looked at, with the exception of 2, did not meet our Halloween decorating needs. A Georgian house had excellent potential only it was at a VERY busy 4 way stop. Then we found a 1902 Queen Anne House.

Our new Halloween project! We bought it in February and started work inside.

That upper window on the east side will have a projection running in it. We need to paint this house sooner than later so that will suck up all the Halloween funds. I really want pumpkins covering the railings on both porches. The plan is to invest in Funkins, over time, so they can sit out the entire month. Haunting the thrift stores now to find used Funkins.

Found this little gem at Goodwill last night. Lights up and was only $4.99. Goodwill is putting out Halloween at the same time as Christmas. At one store this lead to a standoff between the wiseman and the skull.

Peace was restored. Halloween and Christmas are now on opposite sides of the aisle.

Michaels Halloween

My store has the fall floral out and some Halloween items.

Not sure what to think about a Halloween tree like the old ceramic Christmas trees. The ceramic tree was part of every Christmas when I was a kid. The light pegs always fell out and rolled under furniture. Might take a second look if Michaels plugs one in.

The trio of plastic doll heads has potential.

The critter skeleton section.

Fear the itty bitty dragon! He is kind of cute. Started the 2019 Halloween album on flickr. Trying to get my ducks in a row to start on the Halloween craft projects.

Halloween 2019-Fabric

Halloween is popping in to stores! JoAnn has some wonderful new fabrics. This silky skeleton and bat print:

Great draping fabrics. I couldn't find the bat print online only the skeleton print can be found here.

All of the prints above are knit fabrics! I can see making more than one design as leggings. There were glass pumpkins and some fall decor on the shelves.

Halloween on the brain

The little snake bottle is from DeeDee & Shark a very talented artist making spooky, creepy, and truly unique ceramics. Her in person...
