Happy Halloween ~


I know many of you just decorate for fall, but I have so much Halloween that I still enjoy displaying.  It is an eclectic collection ~ everything from vintage paper mache, things my mom made for me, gifts from dear friends and the usual Chinese imports.  I often wonder what the Chinese factory workers think about Americans while making the items . . . lol.

A few figures in part of my treen collection.

All the ceramics on this cupboard were painted by my dear mom, except for the standing scarecrow that I painted with her guidance in 1975!!!

Mom did amazing work.  The scarecrow on the right was one of her favorite pieces.

The jack-o-lantern on the top shelf, middle, is one that I've had for 50+ years.  The gourds to the left were painted by me and the ghosts were also made by me many years ago using paper towels.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs and Happy Halloween :)
