We're just getting warmed up...black cat collection

Over the weekend we started transforming our house with our Halloween decorations. The next collection I want to share are a few of my favorite Halloween black cats. This is my newest acquisition and she came from Magpie Ethel.

Isn't she divine?

Josie helped make this construction paper kitty last year.
Don't you love the whiskers?

A few weeks ago, I made these pipe cleaner Halloween kitties on this post.

It's probably one of my favorite new crafts this Halloween.
I {heart} them.

My new paper lanterns (there are several different styles) are from Oriental Trading company. They are new this year and I just love the vintage look.


A few black cats grace part of our fireplace mantle in our living room.

The musical black cat die-cuts are always a favorite item on my Halloween tree.

Even my chandelier gets a temporary make-0ver with garlands and black cat candy cups.


The blow mold Halloween light is my latest addition to my cat collection. It's nestled among other cats on my sunroom shelf. I scooped it up last weekend at my favorite antique/thrift store for $1.99. Yippee!!

I've even included a few black cats for your crafting pleasure.

Happy Halloween!

Forget Martha. YOU are the Queen of Halloween! I just love all of your decorations, especially the ones you made. A couple of years ago I bought some chenille cats on Ebay, and it never even occurred to me that I could make my own. YOU could write a book on crafting, girlie!

PandaMom said...

I might be dreaming, but there just could be one day that I actually make it to your party in person!! ; )

GardenofDaisies said...

Love all your black halloween kitty cats!! I have my very own live black cat that makes the most adorable decoration of all. :-) I need to do a post with her, but she just won't pose for photos at all.

I love the black cats...and all of your neat things! I found a roll of black AND a roll of orange crepe paper at the thrift store and thought of you! I have something to get started with now! Hugs! ♥

Great black cat collection! I love the blow mold that you picked up for a wonderful price. Nothing better than some spooky black cats....

Donna said...

Wow, your black cats are so neat, Kim! I love them all, especially the ones that you made with the pipe cleaner arms! I thought for sure those were vintage. Somehow I missed that post, going over to check it out now:)

Pam said...

Your chandelier is too cool. I never think to look at Oriental Trading Company for Halloween!!! I'm going to go check them out right now.

I hope I already told you how clever those little black cats you made are - if not - they are wonderful!
