Fun Halloween News!!!

Happy Friday!!!
I thought you might like to see another glimpse of Halloween at my house.

Here are some antique Halloween postcards. My front door wreath.

One of my favorite black cats. The Boo! banner that I made.


My hutch all decorated. My fireplace and mantle.

I even decorated the little bird house near my front door.



One of my prize pieces, this papier mache jack-o-lantern. These are hard to come by anymore. If you find them, they are really expensive. The Games for Halloween book, is from 1912. Halloween parties were big back then. (What else did they have to do)?
Now for the news, I will be featured for the second time as the Cottage of the Month for October, on Jennifer Grey's website, http://www.theoldpaintedcottage.com/. I was the featured Cottage of the Month for September 2006, but this time it is a Halloween extravaganza!! You will be able to see much more Halloween in my house. (with much better photographs) She has a really great camera, and a great eye for photos. I had such a fun time on Monday, when Jennifer was here taking the pictures. Be sure to check out her site on October 1. If you haven't been to her site before, she has amazing items for sale, as well as beautiful Cottage of the Months to go crazy over. I believe Lisa of Pink Paint and Roses was her very first Cottage of the Month. Lisa's house is really cute!!!
Every first of the month a new cottage/home is featured on Jennifer's website.
I hope you all have a great Fall weekend!!! I will be heading out to the Ventura Flea Market on Sunday. (The first one since June) YAY!!!

Congratulations on your feature. But, from the looks of your home, it is no wonder. You said that the book was from 1912. Do you remember the movie Meet Me in St Louis with Judy Garland? They talked about a huge Halloween bash and that took place at the turn of the century. How positively wonderful to have that in your collection.

Love,
Julie

Oh Rosemary, I love it all!! I really must get busy decorating for Halloween!

Congratulations on being featured again as Cottage of the Month. I didn't realize you were featured before. I am going to hop over there right now and check it out.

What a beautiful home you have! I love your Halloween decor. I haven't taken a single decoration out yet (shame on me - my kids will only appreciate the fun and games of Halloween when they are little)! I do have a vintage clown costume from the 20's just like the ones featured in the latest Country Living - perhaps I can hang it from our front door this year... I've never done that before. =)

KLKinFLA said...

Congratulations, Rosemary! I always check this site out around the first of the month, and will look forward to seeing your beautiful home in all its Halloween finery.

I think you should also be featured for front door of the month...that door is beautiful!
