🎃 🐈⬛ 🧹🕸️ 👻 🎃
Festive Halloween paper fans hang from branches over the window,
along with some seasonal bittersweet vine, flanked by brooms. . .
one vintage, one new. 🧹🧹
Follow the Halloween Rules to keep things happy:
🪄 Believe in the Magic 🧙♀️
🎉 Have Fun; Stay Up Late 🌕
🧛 Wear a Costume; Trick or Treat 😈
🎃 Carve a Pumpkin 🎃
🍬 Eat Lots of Candy 🍭
👻 Be Spooky 😱
A happy smiling Jack-o’-lantern bucket (already carved ;)
is serving up candy treats . . .
Orange and black lollipops have an old-fashioned nostalgic appeal,
and sit atop festive Halloween straws to elevate the fun!
They’re joining ghost and skellie-wrapped chocolates in a bucket of candy corn.
More paper fans sit on the tabletop for a festive back drop
to a forest of bottle brush trees for Halloween. . .
A black feather boa lines the window shelf, decorated with beribboned white pumpkins,
bottle brush trees and a few Halloween friends.
Meet my whimsical friends and shelf-sitters, dressed for Halloween. . .
‘Calvin’ is always happy, part smiling Jack, part friendly ghost,
and wearing a polka dot witch party hat.
‘Clarence’ the cat, has a Cheshire-grin and embodies
the mischievous spirit of Halloween.
Beware: he’s known for his tricks, rather than his treats.
And ‘Ollie’ the owl, loves all things Halloween and is a snappy dresser!
He’s holding ‘Boo’, a baby ghost and sporting a ruffled collar with his suspenders.
I’m a fan of folk artist, Johanna Parker.
Her one-of-a-kind Halloween characters were sparked
from her imagination and love of vintage;
attributed to being born on October 31st, a spirited day of creativity.
Her licensed designs of iconic Halloween characters adorn a trio of plates,
providing some vintage charm and whimsy,
as well as smiles. . .
A Smiling Jack. . .
And Ghost, who looks more scared than scary! 👻
Black mugs are filled with some nostalgic candy treats. . .
Pixy Stix, a twist pop, witch lollie, chocolate foil wrapped Jacks, skeleton,
and ghost, along with mellocreme pumpkins and candy corn.
