Me! Me! I wanna be first! :)

i like vintage-inspired items. I love handmade items--admire the creativity and appreciate the work that goes into them.

I am specifically seeking old dolls/discarded dolls to stock my haunted nursery. They don't have to be spooky...just cast off dolls.

My only dislike is guts/gore/excessive blood.

I love Disney and the Haunted Mansion, too.

I decorate indoors and outside
Inside: I would call my style classic/vintage/elegant goth
Outside: I do a graveyard with ghosts, groundbreakers, spiders, and bats

I like ghosts, pumpkins, jack o'lanterns, crows/ravens, black cats, skulls, Day of the Dead, skellies, candles, PVC candles, lights(orange and purple), creepy cloth/freaky fabric in black, beistle cutouts, and black roses. Kitchen accessories and dishes,Halloween socks!
I love anything homemade, thrift store treasures, and candy corn. ;)
I don't like gore and blood, dead things in jars, bugs and snakes (spiders ok), clowns, nothing satanic or demonic, zombies.
I have been thinking about it and have decided to go for it! I am doing my bedroom in a Day of the Dead theme. If that helps.
Also Hubby and I are huge Doctor Who fans.

Somewhat Eccentric

gore is OK with me
evil dolls/toys
potion/witch bottles
anything creepy or unusual
homemade is great
I have no problem with used items - I'm a flea market junkie :)
huge The Walking Dead fan
Halloween themed kitchen towels and the like


not a fan of the Twilight series

I decorate indoors and out. I don't really have a theme, unless creepy and eclectic count. I have cats and dogs but you don't have to send anything for them.

There is a major problem with FedEx misdelivering packages in our area. Took me six days to locate my last package. UPS and USPS are great.

My family hosts an annual Halloween party outside every year. This year, my theme is more generic, but leaning towards Edgar Allen Poe, or gothic. We have a costume contest and a haunted maze for children and their parents. I'm with Sidnami in that I will take your unwanted items, just not your unwanted cute stuff!! Light glitter is ok since I decorate in a more elegant, gothic feel inside my house. I also have 2 kids, a girl and boy, 11 & 9, a puppy and a kitten. No, you don't have to send them anything, but I see some people like to, so I'm just throwing that out there. (my kids love candy! Big surprise!)


vampires, vampire dining accessories, vampire hunting kits, etc
Werewolves - realistic ones
Universal Monsters
flying crank ghost, or any realistic ghost
any hand-me-downs you might want to get rid of
halloween bakeware, serving pieces
gothic decor
Creative costume contest awards
glow necklaces, preferably the purple/orange colors
creepy cloth and cheese cloth ( I can never have too much)
skulls & skeletons or anything made with them
face changing portraits
candles and candelabras
purple lights
Spanish moss
animated items of any kind (except the baby stuff)
cardboard coffin
step pads from Spirit

Dislikes or don't needs:

baby anything
potion bottles (I have plenty, thanks)
dollar tree items unless used to make something else.
Cute or country
blow molds, stuffed or inflatables

I would LOVE anything you see on my Pinterest pages:

Copied & pasted!!!

I decorate inside & out.

Inside is a hodge-podge. I have an apothecary in the kitchen & I just started collecting little village pieces. I have skeletons of all sizes, everywhere. Glitter is OK! My albums show my tastes pretty well. I'm OK with new, hand-made and/or hand-me-downs.
Outside is my Maple Grove Cemetery. It's pretty basic, and somewhat goofy.

black cats
owls / ravens / vultures
potion bottles / spell books
Boney Bunch / Yankee Candle stuff
Gothic / Victorian stuff
maple leaves / natural items (branches, etc)
unique things

TV guys (Freddy, Jason, etc)
excessive blood & gore
excessive cutesy
zombie babies
Nightmare Before Christmas

here's my Pinterst board http://pinterest.com/n8ltg/halloween-fall/

:D Wow, seems as though I just did this, ha ha!:D Okay, I decorate inside and out, and I have loved Halloween since before I was born. (Is that even possible?) I will like anything my Secret Reaper chooses for me, because that is the kind of person I am. I do appreciate hand made items, because I know the amount of thought, talent and care that goes into creating something from scratch. But if you are not a homemade kind of Reaper, that is okay too.
Pumpkins (more scary...think Pumpkinrot)
Skulls, skeletons, bones (more life size to use in my graveyard and foam skulls are completely lovely because I can transform them)
Black lights (my theme next year is ghosts and black lights)Day of the Dead (I display that all year)
Goblins & ghouls
Nightmare Before Christmas (huge fan...well...obviously...look at my avatar)
Graveyard things (handmade tombstones)
Large Crows
Halloween papers or Halloween stationary and stickers (not cutesy, more scary stickers) (I love having those on hand to send notes)
Witch dolls (I have a collection of those)
Witch jars (the kind like you hang from wire)
Witch potion bottles and labels for me to stick myself (I'd really like ones that my Reaper made)
Or... The thing I would love the most is..........

Demon babies
Elevator Music

Think my list is pretty simple overall. We are doing only inside decorating this year as we don't know when baby will arrive so outside display is a no-go this year.

I like.....

Creepy cloths
Kitchen related items
"Things" in jars
Purple/Orange LED lights

And like everyone else I'm loving that cake platter! :D

I DON"T like....

Creepy baby stuff
Cutsey stuff
Glitter is...okay if it's got to have it, but prefer not

Due to a promise I made to my other half, I'm going to pull the trigger and ask for what I dread the most. She likes the cute Halloween stuff!!!! Glitter, friendly, girly..... more artsy, less fartsy...... She loves doll houses and the items that goes in it. She likes to dominate the kitchen and she adores drinks.

So send all your cute stuff! You know you want it gone!

So have it posted to Julia Ottolini instead of Sid please. Thanks.

ok heres my likes and dislikes that i was supposed to do yesterday but got distracted and didnt end up doing.

orange.. i LOVE orange.
harry potter stuff
indoor decorations
outdoor decorations
my theme is graveyard, i do need more outdoor props for it since i have very little that actually fit.
love hand made items
love store bought items
glitter and cutesy is ok for indoor stuff but not outdoor. and not too much of that
nightmare before christmas
fall scent wax melts for my warmer
vintage is pretty cool
tombstones (non cheesey name play epitaphs. i hate those ones)
tea towels and oven mitt sets

could care less about clowns, pirates and day of the dead stuff. also no super gorey crap either as its pretty much useless to me. also have no use for movie guys like freddy and the like. not super into mummies and wolfman stuff either. no evil dolls either, i have plenty and do not need anymore.

if my reaper can find skull pops, i would love a few bags of those as i have yet to have any luck finding them where i live. they're suckers, purple on one side, white on the other. grape and cream flavored. very tasty.

also here is my pinterest link: http://pinterest.com/mariposa0283/halloween-reaper-ideas/

will need some glow sticks (about 30 or so) for my eyes in the bushes again this year. variety of colors. i LOVE surprises. if its something i havent listed as a dislike and you arent sure if i like it or not... make/buy it and send it anyways because surprises are awesome!
i have 2 dachshunds and a kitty cat who also enjoy halloween.. wink wink nudge nudge. lol
