Raise your hand if you remember these popcorn plastic decorations from the late 60s/70s?
Of course, I had to scoop them up as soon as I saw them at a recent estate sale.
I also brought home a few more cardboard cutouts and a few vintage Christmas pieces.
The anagrams, Christmas Santa mugs and bead trims will be used for crafting projects.
My husband surprised me this week with a handful of holiday treasures from a different estate sale. I love the size of this bottle brush tree. It's HUGE!
He's gotten good at tracking down sales on his way home from school.
Lastly, I have to share my Halloween costume makeover. A month ago, I found this homemade Halloween costume for .50 cents and fell in love with the orange and black colors.
I added homemade yarn pom poms to the buttons and sewed black ruffles to the collar. I also made a badge from scrapbooking paper and ribbon. The little girl wooden hanger was painted by my mother in the 70s when my grandparents still owned a woman/children's clothing store. Isn't she sweet?
Although the costume is too small for Josie, she gladly modeled it.
We're both sending you all a few Halloween hugs! PS. It's homecoming weekend at Emma's high school. Marching band, Varsity football, and a homecoming dance will keep our schedules full. My camera will be busy capturing it all.
Back in May I purchased this pale blue dollhouse from the Allegan Antique market.
Since August, I've been giving it at Halloween makeover.
It's finally done and I'm pleased to show it off.
As you can see, I've had all kinds of fun decorating the exterior.
The window boxes are still one of my favorite additions to the exterior.
I've been sharing all kinds of interior pictures starting with the living room back in August.
The kitchen is still one of my favorite rooms with all the special candy treats on the table.
And the special hutch filled with jars of potions.
Miss red-haired witch is busy cooking up spells and desserts for her Halloween party guests.
The last two rooms to receive makeovers include the bathroom and bedroom.
Doesn't everyone have a few mice and a casket in their bathroom?
Miss dark haired witch is busy making the bed.
A fireplace keeps the bedroom nice and toasty.
This is a complete view of the whole interior. This has been one of my absolute favorite Halloween projects EVER. The dollhouse is now on top of my china hutch up high away from little fingers and a busy kitten who likes to steal small objects.
In 2008, we traveled to China to adopt a toddler who needed
heart surgery for Tetralogy of Fallot and hand surgery to remove an extra thumb. I'm always happy to share our experience with SN adoption. When I'm not at work, you might find me at an thrift/antique store or estate sale. I also love to sneak in a craft project and decorate our multiple dollhouses with my girls.
Come play with me!

In 2008, we went to the Jiangxi Province to adopt a little girl who needed open-heart surgery for Tetralogy of Fallot and hand surgery to remove an extra thumb. I'm always happy to share our experience with a SN adoption with others.
When I'm home from work, I love to sneak in a weekly craft project or a trip to my favorite antique/thrift stores. Come play with me!
