New HaLLoWeEn!

So...this fall, I decided to do less for HaLLoWeEn; buy less, decorate less; obsess less (?!?). One out of three isn't so bad... This witch paper cutting joins my collection of Scherenschnitte.

The little witch stump house is my new miniature creation. It has a flickering LED votive inside to make it SpOoKy.

These tiny candles just arrived (bought on Etsy). They are each @ 1/2" tall. I love the faces.

Violet the witch spoke to me at an artists' co-op store in Midland as soon as I walked in the door. I couldn't refuse her!

Just love the lamps, the owl under the mantle, the witch, the velvet pumpkins and the clock case I turned into a haunted house display for my Wee Forest Folk trickor treaters. All these things turn my mantle into an amazing HaLLoWeEn display.

Finally, the last picture shows the treasures I brought home from Ghoultide Gathering, earlier this month. The black mouse (on a BOO pumpkin) was handmade by Lori Ann Correlis; the pumpkin with large eyes was made by Joyce Stahl; and I have forgotten e name of the artist who made the flickering candle with the face.

I still get carried away with HaLLoWeEn! Joining The Cottage Market to share my blog~some thrifty; some not!
