Vintage Halloween, Black Cats and Gurley Candles

Yes a entire shelf of black cats for Halloween

Happy Halloween!

A miss of new and vintage Halloween

my favorite little black cat and basket I bought many years ago, actually saw one in Texas!

I love postcards, but only have a couple of Halloween ones.

Boots approves of the Black Cat theme

I also love Gurley candles.
I can remember my Grandmother had the pilgrims, and turkeys out at Christmas.
Luckily I still have hers but I also bought my first turkeys and pilgrims for my own house with Grandma many years ago.
The Halloween ones are a bit more expensive, but I have gotten some over the years.

ghost, witches and pumpkins

wish I could get them for what they say on the bottom
different prices depending on the age

Other little vintage pieces

my little witch I have had since my childhood

And I did find something new to add in Texas, and it was only $6

the metal piece with great graphics

so I wish you a Happy Halloween
So excited is on Saturday, I always volunteer to work so those that have kids can be off, but I will be handing out candy on the front porch this year!

My Great Uncle Max and Aunt Esther
Don't you just love it, even a broom in the picture!

Vacation has come to a end...........

Today is my last day off after a glorious 2 weeks off!

Mr. and I went on our first true vacation in about 10 years.
We headed to Texas to visit his brother.

their home is on a boulevard lined with old oak trees, such a glorious view.

a wonderful old ranch house on a couple acres right in the middle of town.
I could sit out in their yard all day long, it was so relaxing

their front yard is like a park, and you have to love their fence.

We had great weather, my SIL did alot of antique shopping, the boys some work around the house, and great meals out under the Texas stars every night.

Downtown Boerne has so many more shops since I was there last.
This was a great place we went to for breakfast one day.

the interior was beautiful and the food was great!

you can find about anything, even famous pickles

a great Christmas shop

just north is the small town of Comfort, they had one of the best antique malls I have ever been in

Sisterdale general store was where we had a steak dinner under the stars and lights with some great music

true Texas entertainment

of course I enjoyed the cat that reminded me of my sweet Pinky

One day was spent in Fredricksburg, which we had been to before but we went to the Pacific Theater WWII museum, shopping and of course eating German food.

I thought you would enjoy seeing the old 5&10
so much reminded me of the one of yesterday in Charleston

window display

oh how i had forgotten about the fake flowers

row after row of wooden shelving filled with all kinds of items 

family, wine, relaxing

we just loved hanging out under the oaks in the Texas Hill Country
