    Home Depot has had these online beyond Christmas. They are usually a bit cheaper than Spirit.

    The white clown gloves light up with multi colored LEDs, too. I love the goslings! How adorable!

    I hope that your gosling is doing well! I'm glad that you liked everything. I should have thought to take pictures so you wouldn't have to, but I didn't. I had to hide the air horn from my kids, or it never would have made it into the box, haha! There is a nose in there somewhere, shrink wrapped. It's from Walgreens' Red Nose Day campaign. I thought that maybe someone could wear it in the haunt. :) I was really afraid that the foam noses wouldn't show up in time, and the solid clown mask...

    Hilda, you must have known that it was me, by the address. :D Did you see the skull on the pull tab, to lift the cellophane to turn the lights on? I couldn't come up with a creative way to do that. I figured you could take the sticker off, once you saw where to pull the cellophane. I really wish that I could have made the tentacled plant as I'd planned. I think that it would have fit the cake holder better, but Mr. Frog looks pretty cozy in there! And, like I said, if you want to take him...

    I was reaped today! I'm not sure that we're revealing names yet, so I will keep it hushed for now. Thank you, Reaper! I am going to put her out near my standing witches. I think that she'll really fit in with them well! I love her!

    Sorry that I was a straggler. :) I sent you the info just now. It should arrive by Thursday! I just wish that my first package was with the other reapee already (the 1 box reap). Seems there is a problem with delivery for some reason. :(

    We bought our Ben Cooper costumes at the local Ben Franklin, right there in our tiny little town. :) We always looked forward to my sister's friend's house, because her mom made awesome popcorn balls for us. She would literally make two garbage bags full, each one wrapped in Saran Wrap. I don't think that anyone skipped their house! They always had a weenie roast and invited us, too. One of my friends would also have one every year. I personally didn't get to go out ToTing by myself, my...

    I'm a 70's/80s kid myself, so my memories are very similar to most that are already posted. Simple decorations, and dark. :) Somehow, it seems less dark as an adult, doesn't it? Makes me wonder if kids think it's dark now, or not! I lived in a very small town, where really only two people did much for the holiday. Lots of people had the same that we did, Jack o'lanterns, die cuts. But the lady who ran the dance studio...she was AWESOME. She lived in a big house (dance studio inside the...

    I was wrong on the price for the metal and glass case. It was regularly $32.99, not $39.99, and was part of the 50% off sale.

    Sorry I've been away and not answered questions! :) The "case on the left', as we are referring to it, haha, was $39.99, but either 40% or 50% off on sale, I can't remember exactly which. I'm not a big HL fan either, and usually avoid it, but when I saw the case, I HAD to have it. Printersdevil, the solar lamps at Family Dollar are buy one get one half off, and they're $10 regularly. :) I saw the beakers too, over near the frames, which is near where these cases were at our store.

    We adopted a new cat on Friday afternoon! She looks a lot like our first cat. This one was at the pound, and it seemed like she wasn't going to get adopted before her euth date, so I decided to save her. I'd love to save them all of course, but she's special to me, because we lost our first cat almost exactly a year ago. Her name is Jazz (they called her Jazzy at the pound, and it kinda stuck, but we usually just call her Jazz).

    Weekend purchases: Friday, I went to Hobby Lobby for the metal and glass case on the left, and happened to find the plain mantel clock on the right for a couple of bucks at Salvation Army. I think that it will get a nice retro style Halloween paint job. There's an odd open space under the "face", but I'm thinking of standing up some DT skeletons (from garland) inside, and have them peering out of the window. :) I finally made it to Family Dollar on Sunday, for the solar lantern sale....

    I would say that if you are dealing with matte/dulled/antiqued colors of vintage items, and brighter, eye-catching colors in the more modern things, then yes, I would separate them. But, if there are only a few pops of color in the more modern things, you might be able to make it work. My biggest problem is differing size of items. For instance, if I had miniature Jack o'Lanterns, but an almost life-sized cat, the cat would be giant next to the JoLs, which probably would look odd. So I...

    I don't go for actual scares, just an eerie atmosphere. I don't have anything that jumps out, or a startle tactic. I have a few things that talk and move, but mostly it's just to look at, as others have said. My theme is an abandoned old cemetery, with the caretaker's house on the grounds (also abandoned). I love to look at photos of homes and buildings that have long been abandoned, still fully furnished. That's what I go for.

    I had to run in to Hobby Lobby yesterday to pick up one of those cool metal and glass display cases that is shaped similarly to a mantel clock. (someone here posted them, I think? Maybe it was on an FB group?) Anyway, on the way home, I suddenly found myself in the parking lot of Salvation Army, where I picked up an actual mantel clock to re-do. It's pretty plain, but I think that I can make it into something nice. I told myself that I didn't really need it, because I had a mantel clock...

    I think that we were responding at the same time. :) What I have always done is add my favorite pieces first, and then things that coordinate. If you have a mixture of different lines, maybe it would look better with a smaller display for each, if you have the room.

    I used to create displays for Luxury Linens (leased area in most Burlington Coat Factory stores), and a few other retail stores that I worked for. oojen is correct about using different heights. You may want to look into pedestals to create heights, too. Such as taking a piece of floral foam, wrapping it creatively in "ruched" (scrunched) material or crepe paper to give it a less plain look, and then setting your item on top of it. The creases in the ruches or crepe paper will catch the...

    No problem at all on the teeth! I did the same thing. I ordered a few things from wish.com for what I sent out, and one item didn't even arrive until Thursday. Then for whatever reason, they sent it requiring a signature (on a $3 item, really?). So I ran to the post office Thursday after work to pick it up, and they told me that it was still out on the truck. So I asked for it to not be re-delivered Friday, because I wouldn't be home at delivery time. I intended to pick it up at the PO and mail...

    I picked up both pieces of their one item yesterday. I'm not entirely thrilled with one half of it, and may go another direction. It's a little on the cute side, and I'm not confident that I can spook it up enough. I was going to put in an item that I had recently purchased for myself, thinking that it was perfect (for the half of it that I do like!), but I went to a different store and found something that I think will work even better. :D

    If this isn't our photo thread too, I apologize! :D I GOT REAPED TODAY!!! I'm so sorry that I didn't post sooner, but I also adopted a cat today, and I've been trying to play referee between her and the other two animals. I'm also not the best photographer, with just my cell camera to work with, and a 5 yr old constantly begging me for ice cream (before supper!). So here goes, my reaper did very, very well! I love it all, and will put it all to good use! :D

I suggest that we stack the bodies in the cellar, lock it, leave quietly one at a time and forget that any of this has ever happened.
