Vintage Halloween ~

~ ~ ~ WELCOME ~ ~ ~  

* * * * *
I've bound my Cathy G sunflower rug and have hung it from the cupboard door.

If I was hanging it on the wall, I probably would have just used a couple small nails, but did not want to nail it to the cupboard door.  I didn't have a dowel, so I sewed a chopstick to the binding and hung it with fishing line.  I guess it works!

I've probably shown many of my Halloween decorations in years past, but for those newer followers or those like me with CRS, I will show some again.  Here are vintage tin noise makers . . .

. . . and vintage papier mache.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Pug hugs :)


  1. I love your sunflower rug. I will never tire of your wonderful vintage halloween collection.

  2. Love your vintage halloween collection, your home looks wonderful with the different displays.


  3. You are, indeed, my wonderful evil twin. :o))) You don't know how big I smiled seeing your delightful Halloween collectibles....I collect the vintage noisemakers and papier mache JOL's too...of course.... (And your sunflower rug looks great and finished the ingenuity of the hanging part....I always struggle with that part. Hadn't thought of chop sticks before... ;o)) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  4. Oh be still my beating heart, I love halloween decor and really miss mine this year. I also collect papier mache punkins. Have you read the book Vintage Halloween Collectibles by Mark Ledenbach? It's my bible on what I still want to find and I keep it out all the time so I can constantly flip thru the pages.

  5. Great idea for hanging your sunflower rug. I would never have thought of using a chopstick. You are Very cleaver.

    You are way ahead of me with your Halloween decorations, mine are still in the totes. Your vintage collections are always fun to look at.
    Have a fun weekend Lauren

  6. Terrific sunflower rug...looks great hanging on the cupboard. Love all your JOL's...such wonderful faces on them!
    Have a great weekend,

  7. Hooray for chopsticks! That's probably even better than a dowel because of the flat sides. It is keeping your sunflower hanging perfectly! Love the vintage decorations! That last guy is reeeeeeallly scary looking!

  8. Love your sunflower rug! Love all your Halloween goodies!

  9. I never get tired of seeing your vintage decorations, they are so awesome! Great idea of sewing the chopstick to the back of the rug to hang looks fantastic!

  10. Hi Lauren, what a great old Halloween collection, how wonderful. Love all it all!!!! Those paper mache pumpkins are so neat. Your sunflower rug is so pretty, looks great hung there to. Blessings Francine.

  11. There's nothing wrong with improvising - I don't think that I would have ever thought of using a chopstick and fishing line though. Good idea. And love all your vintage Halloween things. I remember a couple of those noise makers from when I was a kid.

  12. I love all your Halloween decs, and the sunflower rug looks marvelous. Clever idea to use a chopstick as a dowel.
