Signs of Halloween....

Last post I was moping for Halloween and, I still am but, a few weeks ago I had to kill some time while my puppy was getting a mani/pedi. I wandered into a Michaels and look and what I saw!!!!!

Yes! Halloween and Autumn is peeking its head in at Michael's!!!! It was tickled when I saw this stuff. I think I literally giggled in the aisles. I was smiling when I left the store. I soooo wanted to buy a pumpkin or two and an owl but I have to be conservative with my personal funds right now. But, it's coming, it really is!!! I think seeing this delight even helped me get my knitting mojo back. I've started a fall sweater for myself and started on some scarves and cowls for holiday gifts.

Other things are falling into place too. I got a new job. I'm back doing admin work and I start right after the 4th of July. I'm hoping to save a bit of money with the additional income so I can make a trip back to California for the Dickens Faire around Christmas time.

Anyhoo, I hope you fellow Halloween lovers enjoy the photos. I'm going to make a trip back to Michael's soon to see what other Halloween goodies are awaiting!



  1. Yay, you made my day!!!

  2. Thanks for the photos, I'm so jealous of you having all that choice for Halloween and Autumn stuff in the states, we only get a few nice bits in the UK, not much at all. Those owls are just adorable.

  3. I had to break my budget and buy a Funkin. It was the first of the season! LOL At least I had the coupon from the app.

  4. I'm really excited to see that. I was saying at work yesterday that I have two mini-seasons during summer: festival and faux autumn. My autumn unoffically begins at the end of July.

  5. My goodness, it's coming earlier and earlier isn't it? I think eventually Halloween will be bigger than Christmas and why not, it's SO much fun!

  6. Nice blog .
