    We've done this since we started having our annual bash in 2004. Since our last move, we turned the Great Room into the hotel lobby/museum, we actually have Bloody Mary's Bar set up year round (I do add other stuff for halloween), the dining room is the dining room, the kitchen is the Choice Cuts Chop Shop, Guest bedrooms are witch's room & creepy nursery. My hall if full of pictures of all kinds year round, creepy & regular.

    Worst vampire....hmm..that's a very good question! Almost even better than who is the best? I'll have to think about that for while & see what I can come up with....worst vampire....wait...are we talking overall performance, looks, what?

    This, times 10!! It goes for decorating & parties for ANY holiday but especially the ones we love & like to go big for. Whether that's Easter, Halloween, Christmas or the 4th of July.

    Yep. I'll never grow ginormous award winning pumpkins, have a yard full of cool repainted blow molds, or make some of the super cool props others here make, but I definitely want to see ALL OF THAT here.

    After having been to the further away At Home fairly near Halloween last year I can say that they do a little bit of everything. From glittered cutesy stuff to generic Fall to scary clowns & bloody stuff. They also do moving props though IIRC they had a TON of inflatables. It's worth at least one trip early before everything is gone.

    Try local Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, local yard sales & thrift stores to avoid shipping. Etsy has them too & maybe you can work on the shipping costs with the seller, but sometimes they're cheaper sometimes not. Some big stores do sell them you just have to check closer to the date. And there's always Amazon Prime. You can find plenty of blow molds sellers on Amazon. If you hit the right one &/or Amazon fulfills it & you've got Prime you get zero shipping.

    That must be GR date for the Halloween Haven stuff or pretty near the release of it all. Now that I have 2 At Home stores to check (one fairly close too) I'm sure they'll have Halloween out in 3...2...1....

    Not sure how I missed this but here it is! I like the look of it but it just makes me miss Raoul Julia even more. Yes, John Astin was first & best & great but when it comes to the movies I feel like Raoul nailed it as did Angelica Houston. Not sure if I like Charlize Theron's voice as Morticia in this but that won't stop me from seeing it, especially since it's being released for Halloween.

    I love all these set ups but I'm far too lazy for such things, I generally plant my all my seeds in whatever I can pull outta the recycling bin!:D I'm also not growing giants or stuff for competition so I feel like I can use recycling for my stuff. So far so good. Yogurt cups work well for me as do salad containers, cut up milk jugs, basically anything that's not metal. I also have some actual leftover planting things from buying past years garden stuff & annuals. I keep the flats they...

    It was last years model with bluetooth & it was on sale for $99 (+shipping), that's all I can remember right now. I guess they were trying to get rid of stock before putting the "new & improved 2019" versions of stuff up on the site. I saw bluetooth & went for it. I'm at work right now & the box is still sitting on my LR floor so I'll let ya know which model it was later.

    I've noticed that if I'm not logged in nothing is new, especially at work. I tend to not log in, just check out what's new, but for the last week or so I'd visit during working hours without logging in & not a single thread had updated or moved. I log in & everything is OK. Not sure what happens at home because I stay logged in there.

    I got one of last years projectors with bluetooth a few weeks ago & was going to post about it here but by the time I bought mine, came here, started to create a thread about it, went back to get the link to it all to put it into the thread THEY WERE GONE!! So yes, we should be checking each week before they all go back up in price.

    Maybe burlap on top tied with twine? I agree with JCO, dirty it up a bit. Maybe singe the edges of the paper if you can. Just do something to make the edges less even.

    i would have to post their lack of communication and customer service on Yelp and Facebook. I mean, i ordered in good was i to know they were so messed up on price??

    i didn't. I'm gonna give them a call towards the end of this week.

    I didn't ever really expect it to show up but they should have emailed me at least to say 'ooops, we made a mistake'.

    You are too sweet!
    I found the cloche top at Marshalls a few years back. So I am not sure what to suggest about that.
    For the base. I found a wood 'clock face' at Michaels. I liked the angle of the beveled edges. Then I glued/screwed another round piece of wood that the cloche would SNUGLY sit down on top of. I painted them a dark cranberry color, and then did a wipe-off dark antique stain on it.
    I looked around for a single rose that I liked the looks of. Believe it or not, I found this one at Walmart. Drilled a smallish hole in middle of wood base, and stuck/glued the rose stem in. Plucked a few petals and hot glued them on the base as if they had fallen. I tried to give it a slight 'wilting' pose (if that makes sense). haha

    Yes - getting ready. I have 2 more big project. But can't start till august or september -take us too much room in the garage. I know I love the thrifting- and lately garage sales. Sometimes so much cheaper. I have noticed that places like goodwill are so overcharging for stuff that was donated free.

    I am in LOVE with all your thrifting finds today. Looks like they don't need too much done. I have to rethink my thrifting choices.....hmmmm.....
