It's one of my favorite holidays! We go all out for Halloween every year. Well, I say that now, but honestly, I don't know if I will keep up this tradition once our daughter goes to college. So this year may be my last! For sure it will be the last year for our annual party, because I'm sure that she won't be missing all of those fun college parties to come back and hang out with Mom and Dad :)
The kitty collection is always my favorite display. Although I would love to say they are vintage and authentic, they just have a vintage look to them. They have been all over the house, and this year they're displayed on the shelves in the kitchen.
So yesterday, I'm taking down the summer display, and unpacking kitties, and think to myself, maybe I'll just run to the thrift to see if there's anything I can fill in with.
And what do I find? KITTY CAT PLATES!! Really!
These pretty orange plates were there too. Brand new, with the Ikea tags still on them.
It scares me to think that I might start a new collection, but I couldn't pass up the little owls. I did resist a mercury glass owl at Hobby Lobby the other day, but I bet it will be on sale next week. Can you hear my resistance wearing down?
Another great find was this pretty scrolly tray. $2!!
And it never hurts to have beautiful sunflowers that your sweetie brings when he goes to the grocery store!
This is only half of the kitty collection. Next week I will work on the dining room, and some kitties may land in there, too. And when I get to the living room, I'll show you the amazing orange silk pillows that I found!
