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!

Ann, I love your display of old things. I almost laughed at the prices though. Your cat is a beauty. Hope you haven't lost all your autumn color yet. I have been trying to soak it all up. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

You have such a wonderful collection of Halloween things. I have not seen Halloween candles in years and years. Everything you have is just fun. That picture at the end from 1914 is precious! You are so lucky to have it! xo Diana

I adore your Halloween decor, dear friend!!!
I love cats. . .and Boots is absolutely gorgeous!!!
My MoMa had the set of Christmas Choir Boys, but they melted.
One Christmas she gave me some ca$h for my gift.
I was thrilled to purchase porcelain figurines that looked like those candles!!!
It made my MoMa smile when I showed them to her, too!!!
Thank you for bringing this precious memory to mind!!!
