About a year ago, one of my favorite blogs, "Dear Lillie," posted pictures of her daughter's Pink Cinderella birthday party. Not only did I love the darling decorations, I also fell in love with her Swedish Mora clock:
It's absolutely magical with this party theme but it totally works with her everyday decor. And so began my obsession with these clocks :) Authentic Swedish Mora clocks are very expensive and even some reproductions can be pricey. I soon realized that it may be awhile before I'd own one. I keep an eye out while thrifting and check Craigslist often, etc. No dice. Ebay has a few but still too pricey. Fast forward to Saturday, Dan and I were out running errands. I stopped by HomeGoods to look for bathroom accessories for the master bathroom and look what greeted me just as I passed through the double automatic doors:
I thought it would be fun to share some of my Halloween-themed finds considering this may be my only Halloween fun this year what with Frankenstorm and all!
There's a witch thing going on in the Jackson house this year so when I spied this primitive and worried looking little witch jar, I knew she'd fit right in:
I love her expression! She was 99c at GW. This cast iron compote dish is pretty freaking cool:
It sits on the shelf next to the little witch and holds faux glass eyeballs :) Speaking of eyes, how 'bout these "thousand eye" egg cups:
See how the hobnails have little bubbles inside? Here's a closer look:
These are Westmoreland double-sided egg cups. I paid $2 for each of them at GW. This next find came from SALVO:
Vintage Viking owl fairy lamp, $1. This was another one of those fortuitous finds. I saw the chimney only and snapped it up; I knew what it was and wanted one. I figured it was at the SALVO because it's bottom had been lost or broken. Then, while perusing the glassware in another part of the store, I picked up a couple of mugs to look at them, and there was the bottom! I did a little dance :)
This also made me dance:
A blackbird-in-a-pie pie vent, (99c at GW). SHUT UP. That does it - I am officially announcing that I am a pie vent collector. That's right, I am collecting pie vents. They will be able to retire as I have no intention of actually baking a pie but they are so. stinkin. cute.
I'm linking up (as long as FRANKENSTORM permits it...):
