My ongoing quest for Halloween blow molds...

The Halloween festivities continue with my vintage blow mold collection.
Most of the pumpkin buckets were purchased from estate sales over the past year.  They are balanced on top of each other and I'm waiting for them to topple over the next time I open my china hutch to pull out a dish.
My lighted blow molds stand guard next to my Halloween doll house.  They have gotten increasingly harder to find at estate sales, but I still enjoy the hunt!
Tucked around my blow molds are my Halloween Magpie Ethel creations.
The black cat was my 2011 acquisition.
The little witch was purchased in 2012.
The ghostie was purchased this year.  You may have noticed her in my dollhouse blog banner. 
 Laurie (Magpie Ethel) is so talented and I always look forward to her Halloween spunhead creations.
I probably still have another 10 crates to unpack of Halloween decorations. I'm not kidding.  We  own more Halloween than Christmas. 

In between marching band competitions this weekend, I'll be decorating our 3 fireplace mantles with more Halloween goodness.  On Friday, I'm going to be posting my Halloween Kim K. give-away.  Be sure to check back!

I have two huge tubs full of Halloween blowmolds and I only have a couple that are the same as yours. I just love them! They are the closest thing to recapturing my childhood Halloweens. This year I found a jack-o-lantern that was flat on the back so it could be hung on the wall.

Hard to pick my favorite blow mold but I think it's the cat with the jack-o-lantern:@)

I've got my Halloween out and what a relief. I only have 5 bins, but it was my weekend project. Love my creations in the glow of the pumpkin lights..almost like they have a spotlight on them!

What an amazing collection! I gasped when I saw all those totes in your closet. I'm beginning to see why. Love your blow molds. I have yet to nab anything Halloween at an estate sale. Lucky you!

But if you are on a quest for Halloween blow molds, that means there are less for me to find. You just stay in Michigan and I'll stay in Ohio and there should be enough to go around :)

Your halloween display looks really great. I have passed on those blow molds at the thrift stores before, but now that I've seen your display I won't be passing them again. It looks FABULOUS!

Now I have blow mold envy...! LOL
You have such a knack for decorating!
I am encouraged to dig out my tubs~maybe. I have so many new/old things that I can probably skip digging.
Have a terrific weekend. Jersey Boys for me!
