~ENOUGH ALREADY..~

Every year I say I am only going to add just ONE new item to my Halloween collection..and I NEVER keep my promise to myself. 
I invaribley forget what I have packed away..
It's a sad situation.
 

I found this little collage on ebay and fell in love with the baby crow in a cage.  I may replace the crystal ball with a real one..but otherwise I love it.  A real rose will be added as well. 
The book is a real one and is fascinating how they madeit. 

And then I found these Halloween pillows..

 A haunted house with a flying Witch was also added....these are for my front porch IF I ever get it finished! 

And these little shelf sitters..all dusted in cinnimon so they smell lovely.
That's IT.  I'm DONE I tell you!
Not another thing.  Nothing!
 

Then, heaven forbid, I stumbled across this artist that paints the most gorgeous things for HALLOWEEN ...but of course they are WAY out of my price range. 
I would LOVE to have at least one of her items.....you know...but they really ARE way too expensive.
 
Lovely as they are..I do NOT need this.  I am retired.  I have enough stuff !!  I will not buy anything else!  I MEAN it this time!!
HELP! HELP!

  1. Love those little shelf sitters..:)
    As much as I always loved Halloween as a kid, I have very few decorations. I decorated a little bit when the grands were all little...not so much anymore.

  7. Well Mrs. Mona... I am tempted to take a bet you will find some other little thing to buy, before Halloween.
    I just love how you embrace the seasons. Of course every one needs a crow and a black cat and pillows. How could any one have Halloween with out them.
    Hugs
