Halloween Finds


I thought I would share a couple of my Halloween charity shop finds with you to celebrate.
I don't think that there is that much age to them ........
....... but they are a little different to the ceramic ones I have also bought from Poundland.
They certainly have a lot more detail .......
.....and at 40p each what's a girl to do, but take them home and give them a flipping good clean.
I might have to go over a couple of worn spots with a surreptitious Sharpie pen or two, but these will certainly deck my festive halls over this Halloween weekend.
This velvet covered Raven wasn't a charity shop find, it came from Wilkos and cost £4.  I just had to have him, he did had two sunken red eyes which was very unflattering, but these were soon replaced by a black flat back gems.  He won't be packed away after the festivities either, I love him so much he's going to be a permanent feature in my lounge diner, with a tea light behind him in the evening he just looks fantastic.
And finally, these graduating potion bottles were from Hobbycraft for £2 the pack.  I bought them for Iris as she is Harry Potter mad at the moment, but before she gets them I think they need the fiddle fart treatment, a little more colour, glitter and few interesting contents ....... happy days!
