Old Time Pottery Decorated Halloween Tree

I was absolutely ecstatic to have been asked to collaborate with Old Time Pottery (the store with more) on my very first Halloween tree! I’ve been a fan of this store for many years. It first opened when I was in high school and suddenly closed. Several years ago they opened up a new location in Tulsa, OK and I visit there probably several times a month (much more than I should). I almost always take my mom along with me (she’s my shopping partner in crime) because I value her opinion when I’m shopping for my home.

Old Time Pottery offers a wide variety of home goods at the most reasonable prices – plus, their seasonal selection is always unique and full of unexpected treasures. The first time I visited Old Time Pottery during this Halloween season (check out my shopping trip here), I fell in love with the giant Halloween ornaments that lined the shelves (yes, Halloween season officially begins in July now and I’m totally OK with that!). 

I’ve been yearning to create a Halloween tree for quite some time, and afterseeing those ornaments I was immediately inspired to deck my tree with gholish baubles from Old Time Pottery!

A Voyage to Spirit Halloween

Ahoy, spooky shoppers! The telltale sign that Halloween season has officially arrived at the harbor is when Spirit Halloween stores officially open!

Nothing is creepier than visiting the building where an abandoned Toys”R”Us or Sears retailer once thrived to find that they have been usurped by demonic animatronic creatures, walls of masks and costumes, and orange and black everything.

I made it a point to visit the first Spirit Halloween of the season on Friday, Aug. 9 (only ONE day after it just opened) on 71st Street in Tulsa, OK.

I always get a kick out of their displays and was giddy with Halloween glee to find that this location was well stocked and all of their frightening displays were working without a hitch. Keep reading to see some of the sights you can expect at Spirit Halloween stores in 2019!

Spooks & Shoes: 7

Greetings spooky friends! It’s been a good while since I shared a “Spooks & Shoes” post!

This is partly because shoes are the last thing I need (last time I cleaned my shoe closet I counted over 75 pairs). Old habits die hard, because I recently treated myself to a new pair of kicks AND something spooky. So here we are again!

Halloween Shopping at Tuesday Morning

The hunt for Halloween this summer continues – and as you might have noticed, your neighborhood Tuesday Morning store is just now filling its shelves with spooky delights! I love how each store that is providing Halloween fans with Halloween shopping in July all have their own “theme” or “aesthetic.”

The theme so far at Tuesday Morning is flashy, fanciful and fun! Plus, they have lots of little miniatures that would make any Halloween village display a frightful destination.

Keep on scrolling to see what I found in stock at my local Tuesday Morning last weekend!

Halloween Shopping at Old Time Pottery

One of my favorite stores to shop for Halloween at is Old Time Pottery!!! Unfortunately, this retailer is only found in 11 states and mostly in the mid-west region of the U.S. If you have one near you – now’s the time to check them out. What I love most about OTP, is their vast selection of home decor at incredibly affordable prices. That helps to make shopping for Halloween guilt-free!

The icing on top, is that they begin stocking the shelves with spook as soon as the Fourth of July is over! Retailers that cater to Halloween lovers in the summer months are the best kind of stores! Keep on scrolling if you’d like to virtually shop the shelves of my Tulsa, OK location.

Joann Fabric Halloween Sneak Peek

I’m starting to see more Halloween in home decor and craft stores – and it’s only the beginning of July! I am okay with an early Halloween shopping season…if we keep moving up Christmas shopping earlier each year, it’s only fair that Halloween gets the same treatment. Right!?

I decided to stop into my local Joann Fabric and Crafts store to see what spooky delights await for me…I’ve seen some images and videos floating around where folks have already spotted some home decor in store, but my location was still trying purge the last of their Christmas decor. They need to sell it faster to make room for Halloween!

I thought I’d treat you to some sneak peaks at some of the gorgeous, whimsical and vintage inspired Halloween fabric I did see in store already! I hope this photo dump will help your mind churn up some ideas on what you might create this fall!

Spooky Good Style: New Spooky Tees for Summer

It’s not summerween without some spooky summer tees! I wanted to share some of my favorite tees I have purchased this season from some of my favorite designers out there on the world wide web!

Year-round-Halloweenheads like myself wear our spooky swag all the time, and there are plenty of cute and fun ways to dress up these haunting tees for the summertime.

This “Hollow Inside” tee I’m wearing above I got from Doodle by MegMeghan Wallace is fellow Oklahoman and designer who has many Halloween-themed original designs on her Society6 and Redbubble shop and also an array of cute, whimsical patterns, cacti and Gilmore Girls inspired artwork.
