Hello Halloween

So Halloween is just around the corner so I thought I'd have a peak on Etsy and see what they had on offer. I found some rad little treasures to get you in the mood. Above, a vintage inspired Black Cat Standing about 13" tall on an antique alphabet block, made of paper mache and hand painted. USD $24.
Next up - this awesome Scary Cat! Another vintage-inspired crafter has made this cat. He's a 3-color screen print on 30 weight chipboard, which has been lasercut. It it quite sturdy, measures 10 x 10 inches. USD $10.
And by the same seller, this beautiful Owl. I just love the typography. Hand screen-printed in 4 classic vintage colors on heavy weight chipboard, then hand-cut. Measures 12 x 15 inches, shipped flat in a plastic sleeve, sandwiched in cardboard. USD $15.
Wonder finds here, vintage style maraca! Three to choose from: Corky Cat, Skeeter Skully, and Pumpkin Petey. Hand painted shakers. Each shaker is created upon order, individual shakers may vary *ever-so* slightly due to the handmade/hand painted nature. Head measures approx. 3 1/4" x 3 1/4". USD $18.
Now that the house is decorated, you'll need to decorate yourself. You'll need a mask! Three vintage plastic Halloween masks made in USA. USD $20
So I hope that got you in the mood. I think I know what I'm going to go as this year, but I'm not sure when I'll have time to work on my costume...wish me luck.
