Eat, drink and be scary.

I am partial to Halloween, mainly because I love candy, but I also love the decorations, costumes and the whimsy. My favorite decorations and costumes are ones that can be used from year to year. Here are some that caught my eye.


This crocheted man or boy’s beard is fun as a quick costume and will last from year to year. $35.00.


Another instant costume is this spider web poncho made from a warm jersey knit. It comes in black or gray. $69.00.

halloween-2016-boo-candy-dish-setThis Ivy Lane Design BOO! Ceramic Candy Dish Set is fun and will hold lots of candy! $44.99.


halloween-2016-harvest-brown-chevron-pumpkinI love this large harvest brown chevron pumpkin from Target. It is $10.00.


And this small harvest plaid pumpkin for $6.00 from Target.

halloween-2016-hocus-pocus-signFor a really quick decoration that certainly sends the Halloween message, this Hocus Pocus neon LED lit sign gets the job done. It will last forever. It is 27”w x 22” h. $69.00.

halloween-2016-witches-legsThese witches’ legs might be my favorite decoration. They have stakes at the end so they can be stuck in the ground, or they can go under your couch, a hay bale, a car, or coming out of a garbage bin, almost anywhere! $19.99.
