Halloween Obsession and Not So Scary Decorations

Two weeks and two days until Halloween! Yipee! Did I mention for the umpteenth time how much I love this holiday? A few Freaky Fridays ago, you all helped me figure out my costume - Winter Pixie (pics to come) - and thank you Heather McCorkle for that brilliant suggestion. Now, it's time to review my favorite new decorations for this year that I sadly cannot buy because my husband will spontaneously - in a not so spontaneous way - combust if I put one more decoration into our one bedroom apartment.

*Let the wicked grin and plot to sneak in a few new pieces commence*

My top five favorites...
  1. The Candy Corn Mouse. A ridiculously cute mouse dressed up as a favorite Halloween treat. 
  2. The Witch Sitter. Who needs a babysitter when you've got this little witch? *Disclaimer: Tina does not condone leaving your children home alone with a stuffed animal as guardian.*
  3. Scaredy Cats. Adorable cats in need of a calming belly rub or behind the ears scratch.
  4. The Pumpkin Express. Hitch a ride on the coolest train since Harry left for Hogwarts.
  5. Wise Owl. An owl + a monocle = automatic win. He can even stay up for Thanksgiving.
If you want to buy any of these decorations, please note that I've linked them all to Terry's Village - my favorite store for home decor.

*Another disclaimer: I am not an affiliate of nor have I received money from Terry's Village for this post. I'm just a fan of the store and its adorable decorative items. :D *


  1. I LOVE the scaredy cats!!! They almost look like my little man at home ;o)

    I'll cross my fingers that the sneaky Halloween decorating goes well for you :D

  2. Yay for the winter pixie! I can hardly wait to see pictures! I love your decorations, they are so cute. My favorite is a black cat that is hunched up. I love to put him in the window. Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year!

  3. Oh, what a cute candy corn mouse! I hate candy corns, but I could love that mouse. :)

  4. Love the decorations. When we have a house (Tina, stop snickering!) I can't wait to get all these decorations and put them out! :)

  5. I've placed mine all around the house--my office too. Hope you get to buy one more thing, Tina (^;

  6. I love the wise owl and the scaredy cats!
