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.

One of my favorite things about the Halloween season is driving around and seeing everyone’s haunted houses, spooky stoops, and grinning gourds. I decided (despite the unseasonably warm temperature) to haunt the front of my house that last week in September and wanted to share with you how it turned out!

Happy October!!! I have always wanted my own cute front porch sign for Halloween! Being the thrifty-queen I am, I could never cave for one in the store when I knew I had the power to create my own one-of-a-kind sign for much less. That is just what I did – and I do believe it came out just spiffy. Check out how I made mine to inspire your own festive front porch masterpiece. Continue reading “DIY Halloween Front Porch Sign”
If you get tired of too many orange plastic pumpkin pails in your house or attic – don’t throw them out! Instead, breathe new life into them and make them into a creepy cat (one that is vintage inspired at that!). This idea didn’t just come to me – I actually stumbled on the idea years ago on Pinterest and have been meaning to give it a try myself. I had to buy a pumpkin pail (believe it or not, I did not have an extra one laying around!) to create my cat pail. I snagged one for $1 (which is typically what they cost at the store) at the flea market weeks ago. At one point, I did have lots of pumpkin head pails because I always pot mums in them and set them around the front porch this time of year, however I am a lazy gardener and housekeeper and they got busted and faded by the elements just chilling out in my backyard. I’ve learned my lesson from that – respect your pumpkin pails, and in return they’ll respect you and your creativity.

September truly is Halloween eve for me. I pulled out all of my decor as soon as September 1st rolled around, despite temperatures feeling like anything but fall. It made my heart happy going through all of my Halloween treasures, trinkets, new finds and creations and placing them throughout the house. I always turn on a Halloween flick while I rummage through my boxes and this year I turned on “Monster Squad” (definitely a classic!). I was a bit frustrated by the end of my decorating spree since I was running out of space to put things (I guess I need a larger house just for all of my Halloween loot!) – does anyone else have more decor than they do space? I think it’s only a problem that us Halloween addicts must face. I hope you enjoy these snapshots of how I decorated the house this year!

I absolutely love vintage Beistle Halloween decor and artwork and I love that you can order reproductions too!
