Happy Halloween ~

~ Happy Halloween ~
In years past, I've probably shown most of my Halloween collection.  I really haven't added to it, but thought I would share once again.
The following ceramic pieces were all painted by my mom.  They hold a special place in my heart.

Atop the jelly cupboard.  (Reproduction samplers hooked by moi.)

Dining room cupboard ~

Vintage paper mache ~

Though it's my least favorite and probably the newest, I got the mache Jack on the left for only $4 at a garage sale many years ago.

Vintage tin noisemakers ~

A fun hooked rug purchased on eBay years ago.  I have no idea of the pattern designer . . .

. . . the tag on the back.  I wonder if she's still hooking.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)


  1. Lauren what a wonderful collection...You could google the name of the gal who hooked that awesome did she do the binding...just curious...Happy Halloween to you...

  3. Happy Halloween Lauren!!! Always love your collection of vintage pumpkins, so great. Blessings Francine.

  4. Happy Halloween ! Neat collection & that rug is great !

  5. You have a great vintage collection of Halloween decorations and those Ceramics from your mom to enjoy. I used to have some of those ceramics moldsat one time when I was in business.

    I haven't taken the time to decorate for Halloween this October. It seems to not be important this year . It came too fast. At least, I won't have to put all that stuff away either.

    Happy Halloween.

  6. So many things I want to comment but will forget some I'm sure. Hopefully the gal who hooked the skeleton will see the post or maybe a friend will contact her.

    The newest mache jack you could take paper and paint the eyes and tongue and tape/glue to the inside. Just paint it as the other antiques ones are you'll be happy.

    Who hooked those beautiful cats behind your moms art work? I like it. Happy Halloween gal.

  14. Love your collection! So cool! I admire those like you who decorate for the various holidays. I never seem to manage to do so, so I guess it's good I don't have collections for the seasons. lol!

  15. I always enjoy your collections! They are so happy and nice. That is a cute rug and your samplers are lovely. I learn something every time you share. I didn't know you did samplers.
    Everything is just lovely.
