Vintage Halloween

Halloween is a big, big deal in our family. We all just love it! Christmas is still the all-time winner, but Halloween is definitely the next-best holiday for us. From the time I was old enough to open a book and read it, I was drawn to stories about witches, ghosts and supernatural creatures and happenings. And little Julia seems to be following in my spooky footsteps.

You know what else I love? Victoriana! If you love all things quaint and old-timey as well, then you are going to flip over the offerings at D. Blumchen & Co. Don’t you just love the ‘Cutie Pie Witch on a Pumpkin’ greeting card up above?

‘Old Fashioned Halloween Stickers’, $5.95. ‘Old Fashioned Halloween Postcards’, $6.95.

‘Halloween Nostalgia Wreath’, $32.00.

‘Shadow’s Midnight Meanderings’ ornament, $66.

‘Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Cards’, $6.95.

‘Halloween Romantic Art and Customs of Yesteryear’, $17.95 sale price!

‘Classic Ghost Stories’, $3.50. ‘Great Ghost Stories’, $2.00. Two dollars, really?

‘Pin the Tail on the Cat Game’, $5.95.

‘You are Invited!’ Halloween Party Invitations, $9.95.

‘Black and Orange Halloween Candy Assortment’ ornaments, $38.

How about you? Are you a fan of the Victoriana Halloween-ness? I would love to have the Gypsy Fortune Telling cards for a party! I just right now decided that I want to have an old-fashioned vintage Halloween party someday, and we’ll all play old-fashioned party parlor games and have treats that I’ve found in some book from the 1920’s. Ok maybe that won’t taste awesome. And everything will be all glowy and candle-ish. Oooh I just got myself all very excited about the party in my mind that I’ve just envisioned!
