Halloween Finds

I recognize that Halloween is two and a half months away, but if you are going to decorate for it, then you have even less time. So I have put together an early bird Halloween find list for you. I have been really into looking at Fall stuff all over the place. I think because it makes me feel like cooler weather must certainly be just around the corner!

You know I purchased the Halloween Tree the other day. I will need a Tree skirt for it. I plan to make my own. I did one several years ago for my Valentine's Day tree, but I have found these online. I got some good ideas, but I really want more of a combo of all of them, so we'll see how it turns out...


I found this for you guys with kiddos. It is at Ballard Designs and is super clearanced. It was $12, but is now $3.99.

If I were a kid, I would totally want this cupcake costume from Pottery Barn Kids...
PBK also had a couple of countdown to Halloween items that I thought were cute if you had kids...

Yankee Candle has some really great Halloween/Fall things. I tried to copy some of the photos, but they came out really small, so you should just visit their website if you want to see them.


First, they have a really cute line of ceramics called "The Boney Bunch". They are priced from $7.99 to $19.99 and are all really cute. Some of them hold tea lights, some tapers. I have to pass this along to you, because I do not have room for one more Halloween decorative item.


Yankee also has these tapers that are awesome and scary! Whether you put them in actually Halloween candle holders or you put them in your regular candle holders, I think they are a must have. They look plain white, BUT as they melt, they melt blood red. Super cool!


They also have all the old standby candle scents, but have added several new ones, including Almond Cookie, Autumn Fruit, Be Thankful, Farmers Market, Lakeside Birch, Macintosh Spice, Moonlight Harvest and Pumpkin Vanilla. They also have some swirl candles that include Dreadfully Delicious (Pumpkin Pie and Vanilla Cupcake Swirl), Pumpkin Patch (Spiced Pumpkin and Harvest Swirl) & Trick or Treat (Candy Corn and Buttercream Swirl).

You are so good to take the time to do all this Halloween research. I just ordered the kids' costumes, so it is never too early to think Halloween.

I'm ready for Fall too. Summer is killing me.
