Happy Boo-Day Moo!

Today is my friend Moe's birthday - the single greatest Halloween fan I know!  To celebrate, I am doing a Halloween collecting-themed post to kick-of the Halloween season.  The holiday is two weeks out; if you don't have a pumpkin out by now...what the heck are you waiting for?

It will probably come as no surprise to my blog regulars that I have a small collection of Halloween decor.  Really, all of it is here!  (I have family members with rooms full of the stuff!) To keep it manageable, I mostly collect black cat items...

But WHOOOOO  Can resist a good owl or witch now and again?

Get out that orange and black!  Put a pumpkin on the stoop, hang a spider in the window and get ready.  Oh, and send a big Happy Birthday! and "Boo!" to Moooooooooooooooooo


  1. Cool stuff! Say, I have a black cat you could add to your collection. He only occasionally pees on things ... JB

  2. This has to be absolutely the best birthday present ever! I enjoyed looking at the grouping of these fabulous decorations. Today's samplings simply are disappointing. It is either cheap looking or focuses on the bloody gore. I so much prefer this type of decor. <3 Moe

  3. Love love love Halloween! I have two old noisemaker toys, very old -- I think they were my mom's. A shaker and a spin-around thing that makes a rasping noise. The shaker has a cool Halloween design with a witch. We've actually used this stuff every year from my childhood through my kids' and now my granddaughter's!
    Do you still have a cat or kitties, Christine?

  4. Yup, two cats: Carmen (who you likely never met, Calico female) and Muzzi - the Orange Tabby who I took in from Lewis Street!

  5. I have such a hard time finding vintage Halloween around here. I wonder if it has to do with living in the Bible Belt.. Looks like I am going to have to depend on the Internet. I blogged about how much I love Halloween and how much it meant to me as a child. Great pictures. I love your blog!
