Get your spook on: Part 2

Look at the happy couple...aren't they precious?! I am in love with vintage looking halloween decorations. I simply do not have enough of them. I would leave them up all year, if it didn't make me look like a crazy loon. Have I mentioned that I love halloween?...I know...hate me!

Who doesn't love a headless Frankenstein cookie jar? For 90% off at Hobby Lobby, I fell in love with it's imperfections. Anyway, I think the crinkly halloween streamers coming out of it's neck are much better than any ol' head! By the way, please excuse our breakfast dishes in the sink behind Frankie. Hey, I'm keeping it real for ya!
Just couldn't resist spookin' up the powder room a little.

I know, I know...enough with the halloween extravaganza. All 2 of you who actually look at this blog are probably sick of me. But, there is a reason for all the madness. I'm participating in a Halloween Blog Party over at a Fanciful Twist. It is a magical place created by an uber talented lady. Definitely go check her out. And I hate to break it to you...but there will be a part three to this halloween frenzy of mine. Stay tuned.

I concur. The party was super fabulous. I wore my most comfy pjs and hung out with my cat. Doesn't get much better than that!

Amanda~ okay~ I am going to have to do a second-run-through of my TJ Maxx's halloween selection and see if I can find those guys :)
THanks so much for the info!!!!
I get most of my Halloween finds at "Christmas" stores while on vacation in any-town USA - they always have a Christmas store and almost always the Christmas stores have a Halloween room...I go straight to that room :)
ALso, I have gotten things online at and
Both are AMAZING!!!!
Also, I am so lucky to live near Ragon House which is GIANT supplier/manufactuer of reproduction vintage holiday decorations and they have a GIANT warehouse sale once a year and it's open to the general public!!!people(me and my mom and I usually drag my husband too) line up hours and hours before to get in the door- and they have THE BEST stuff and it is dirt cheap- my big white feather "Halloween tree" that is on my blog right now- I only paid like $40 for it!!! I love a bargain too :)
Oh and another great place to get stuff is
Write me anytime to swap BARGAIN HOLIDAY info :)
Also-this is random- but
Do you design blogs?? I love your background!!!! I am looking for someone to make me a new banner and some other web-things for a new shop I am opening up?? Are you available for that kind of thing???
email me at:
Happy Halloween!
