Halloween Around the House...2012

Halloween is almost here so before it's over, I wanted to show you a few
of my favorite Halloween decorations that come out every year to celebrate
the season!  A lot of them are of course, thrifty finds.

 I got this owl the last fall we had our store open from one
of our dealers before the "owl" craze.  He's one of
my favorite things, you can't tell from the pic, but he's really sparkley


This skeleton pic I got from one of my favorite dealers at our
old store for  $3.99, I thought it would be perfect for Halloween!

Owl - sale from Kirklands $3.99


One of my favorite photos of the kids, starting at left, Aaron's friend,
Aaron as army man, Chris as skeleton and Kate as Belle, 

Pumpkin wall hanging, from our old store, $5.00

Skull, ( 75 cents) under glass,  cloche, $1.00 from
a yard sale this summer


Red shelf, yard sale - 50cents

My favorite jar of  "eyeballs", collected years ago from
Taco Bell kids meals

This is a vintage music score from our old store, got it for $1.00
and had it framed at Hobby Lobby.

A friend and I made these years ago and sold them at a craft fair.

Halloween wall hanging from my old store, $7.99
(man, I miss our store, I used to get some great stuff there)!

Another photo of my kids that I get out at Halloween,
Chris, the pirate, Kate the princess, and, Aaron, the power ranger
Hard to believe they are now 26- Chris, 21- Kate, and 23- Aaron!

The same friend and I also made these for the fair

Got this little pumpkin guy at the Gathering Craft Fair in Nashville a few years ago

Well, there you have it, some of my favorite Halloween decorations,
hope you enjoyed your little glimpse into my Halloween!

Till next time.....
PS.  I haven't showed you any photos of Kailyn lately, here is her hospital
photo taken when she was 2 days old and one of her and mom and dad


Will be partying this week at:

I can see why you miss your old shop. You've scored lots of great holiday decor there! I'm loving the red wall shelf holding the stacking boxes. From the shop, too?

Sweet photos of the new family. :)

Michelle said...

Beautiful hospital pictures!!! She's such a cutie pie!! :o)

I really like your skeleton picture on the wall! My grandfather has one that looks identical to it! It used to creep me out as a kid. :o) He also had one of those pictures hanging up that was a woman looking in a dressing table mirror, but if you looked away and looked back at it, it would look like a skull, too! Creepy!
