Orange and black estate sale finds...

Although the girls and Chris don't return to school until after Labor day, it's new faculty orientation at my University today. The new semester is definitely on my "work" brain, but I also am thinking of future Halloween crafting and fall decorating too. Here are a few Halloween estate sale finds picked up over the summer. 

A pair of handmade yarn pumpkins.

 A bag of floral picks which will eventually end up as decorations on our Halloween tree.  Tree pic taken in 2013.

And a hand-painted ceramic witch.

Happy Wednesday!  Happy thrifting!!

Glad you mentioned the tree photo was from 2013, or else I would think you were REALLY ahead of the game :) Those crocheted pumpkins are amazing. I don't think I've found any Halloween lately :(
