Can you believe it? I pulled out the vintage Halloween decorations and they only sat on the table for a week before I found a place for them! Woohoo! Wanna see? Come on! I’ll show you!
So, this first one isn’t technically Halloween. It fits the general fall decor, but I just have put it out. It’s actually a garland thingie, kinda formed into a circle. It doesn’t want to straighten out, so I figured it would be a good, skinny wreath. I’ll change the words on the chalkboard soon.
Vintage Halloween decorations are very hard to find around my area, so I feel fortunate to have the few things I have!
Remember this pumpkin from the few fall decorations I did? I added two, tiny, plastic, vintage Halloween decorations to it. An itty bitty pumpkin head man and an orange, arched back cat.
I forgot I had these vintage, Halloween witch candles! Found them in a plastic baggie. I don’t even remember buying them. How could I forget?
In the same bag as the witch candles were this pumpkin head men candles! I love them! What a fun surprise for me! One little guy has a messed up head, but that’s just fine with me.
These buckets aren’t old, but hey. I can’t afford old, paper mache pumpkin buckets! The little one in front with the wire handle isn’t old, either. Only the tiny, plastic ones have a bit of age on them.
I have a collection of three vintage black cats. One, the larger one with his be-hind stuck up in the air, is a buttless cat — cactus planter, stamp wetter, whatever. The one you can’t tell much about is an arched back cat standing in front of an urn. Made in Japan and probably not meant for Halloween. The buttless cat was probably not meant for Halloween either. The cat in front, standing on a skull, is a crudely done ceramic or pottery/clay cat with a broken and repaired tail.
No, I didn’t make the pumpkin. I haven’t taken the time to try my hand at that yet.
These are some of my favorites. Vintage, Halloween, pumpkin head, scarecrow, knee huggers! Have you ever?! Aren’t they adorable?
This isn’t the best picture of the jar of bottles, but it’s always a favorite.
These are nice witches who live in front of vintage, crepe paper flowers and a pink calendar plate. They’re made like a knee hugger, but aren’t technically a hugger. The cat in the foreground is a cupcake pick stuck in the end of a Halloween horn.
That’s all for today. I do have more, but they aren’t arranged nicely. If I manage to find a better place for them, I’ll share the pictures.
Thanks for coming along for the look-see!
In previous years I’ve put everything on the mantle and called it done. This year, I wanted to spread them out. Dani has had fun finding and playing with some of them. Grandchildren do cause us to be a little more motivated, don’t they?
Here are some other years’ decorations:
