Halloween Is Coming, and Present Past Collection

In between helping my daughter move, painting, cleaning, gardening and all of the other day to day things, I have been working on some Halloween decorations. (click to make larger)

Halloween is a favorite holiday of mine. I collect vintage Halloween items. I have always been fascinated with all things Halloween. My daughter has inherited this fascination, as well.

She will be missing Halloween this year, because she will be on her, Italian honeymoon. (Boo Hoo)



I am planning on showing you a lot more, as the holiday approaches.



I also wanted to show you this adorable tee shirt, I received in the mail yesterday. It is from Heather Bullard's Present Past Collection, website. If you haven't yet looked at her shop, you must right away. She has wonderful things. Including a silver key charm like the one on the back of this tee shirt. I gave it to my daughter last night, and she absolutely loves it.

Not to mention, Heather has wonderful taste, and wraps everything so beautifully. http://www.thepresentpast.com/ If you go to Jamie's blog Simply Me Art http://simplymeart.blogspot.com/, she also mentions Heather today.

Have a wonderful Friday, and weekend!!!

Can't wait to see your Halloween stuff! Only wish I could look forward to a cool, crisp October. Oh well, at least it should dip below 100 by then.

Great t-shirt!

Hi Rosemary

What great Halloween decorations. Growing up in the UK, Halloween was not celebrated, so I missed out on all this fun!

I adore your Halloween decor! Also, when is your daughters wedding? Josh and I were married on Oct 16th, and went to Italy and Paris for our honeymoon. We also missed Halloween here in the states. (It was three years ago). That is too funny!
