Well it's that time again with Halloween just around the corner to share with you all our collection of antique and vintage Halloween collectibles.
Here is a antique postcard that is mechanical that dates from 1910. The little guys arm moves up and down to cover his face with the pumpkin. Ray had bought me the little nut cups that came in a set of six for Christmas a couple of years ago. They are probably from the 50s or 60s.

This little WITCH sits on top of a china hutch watching over our or her collection of Halloween goodies.

Here is a shot of the whole collection in our TV room. That way we get to see all the goodies as we are watching scary movies. LOl.

This orange book dates from the 20's and the photo shows a young party goer showing off her costume.

All theses pumpkins are from the 30's 40's and 50's. The crape paper hats were a cool find also they date from the 20's or 30's

A small portion of antique postcards scattered about the vignette.

This vintage hand sewn child's costume was found at a antique store in Orange Co. We just stuffed it up with some tissue paper to fatten him out. Thank You for stopping by today and if you celebrate Halloween we wish you a spooktacular time and safe Halloween with you family. I think we will go see all the wild coustumes in Hollywood that night....... Julian&Ray

Today we will be linking up to ~ Vintage Inspiration Friday Halloween~ And also for Feather Your Nest Friday over at ~ French Country Cottage ~ ~ Show And Tell Friday~
