Halloween Gift Shop

Local shop has set up a cute display.

Love the warm glow from the these Jack-O-Lanterns only the micro fine black glitter on the stems was spreading. I'd mask off the pumpkin and hit the stem with a high gloss clear coat to keep the sparkle. Starting the Halloween album for 2023 here.

Halloween Shopping

In another first this year, Anthropologie is offering Halloween Goodies for 2023. Inlcuding this gorgeous spooky village. There are buildings, gravestones, and a gate for the village.

This year I started watching more Halloween shoppers on Youtube inclding Cris the Girl and her shopping trip here. She covers Crate and Barrel, World Market, Williams-Sonoma, and Anthropologie in Florida. My World Market won't have Halloween out until next month.

One of my other favorite shoppers and crafters who owns a lovely vintage home is Christopher Hiedman. His crafting videos for making old school decorations are easy to follow.

With the writers strike I have been spending more time on Youtube and discovered this fun couple of the Grimm Life Collective and they travel to spooky places. They go to filming locations, horror conventions, famous haunted attractions, and graveyards.

This incredible little guy arrived from The_October_House on IG today. Cute as is only it glows in the dark! 3.5 inches of pure Halloween Happiness.

From the Tim Holtz Halloween 2023 line I found these tiny little treat buckets. They might not be in stores everywhere. Ordered mine online and they arrived in a few days. Used some little rice lights from the Tim Holtz Halloween collection a few years back to show how they look lit up. There is a hole in the bottom for the tiny LED's.
