13 Days of Halloween Blog Chain: Day 7 ~ My Latest Addition

It's Day 7 of the 13 Days of Halloween Blog Chain hostessed by Robyn of Primlish and Misi of 1890 Gable House MusingsWoo Hoo! I've always liked the number 7.

Since I am the kind who holds onto her treasures, including (especially?) my holiday decorations, most of you who have been with me for a while have already seen much of my Halloween fanfare. It's been challenging to find something you haven't seen before in my home.

But....try as I might to be good, every now and again I find something new (well, if you know me at all, it will actually be old) that I can't imagine living without.

My latest:  These two old Shadowland Candies tins.

These couldn't be more perfect for Halloween!!  And, the company that made these candies hails from not too far away from Nod....
These are oldies....actually dating back to circa 1910.

Now I need at least one more to make it an official "collection." ;o) (Unfortunately, they are not easy to come by.....)



Wishing you a bewitching and beguiling day!!

Oh...and here's the "rest" of the tree for Primlish Robyn....
(Sorry....it has already lost a lot of its leaves....)

Very cool tins. I've not seen them before. Great noisemaker collection, too.
OK. How did you do that picture with the girl looking in? I don't believe in that stuff but that looks very convincing!
BTW...I am so impressed that you are posting every day.
