I live in a small house so I try to not to collect too much stuff. But, I discovered these little Lori Mitchell Halloween figurines a couple of years ago at the Alameda County Fair. I fell in love with them! I bought 2 then. Then 2 more a little later and so a collection begins. They are whimsical and vintage at the same time. I bought the candy corn and bat this year. I found a local store (Ciara gifts and decor in Stockton Ca.) that carries them. They aren't very expensive and I don't feel too bad just adding a couple new ones each year. I have to pack them better this year, did you spot the missing antennae? :)
Here is a little closer look at their cute little faces!
A Side of Peaches is a great site for daily bargains. They only post 1 bargain a day and I haven't bought any Christmas gifts yet, but I am hooked on checking everyday. They do sell out quick, so you have to check early in the morning. They had a great deal on adhesive runners but I was too late!!! Definitely worth checking out!
