And, it gets worse! There's two! I forgot two!
I did remember her after I saw her, but I had forgotten about her. I don't remember where I got her, though. I love her Mother of Pearl buttons and her jaunty spider.
Trick or Treat? C'mon, spin the wheel! You spin the wheel and it decides if you get a trick or a treat. The box under it holds the goodies. I have no idea where this came from either. Never seen it. Nope. Nada. Not me. I can only imagine it came from an after holiday sale and I packed it away and promptly forgot about it. Either that, or I have Old Timers.
Whenever I am out thrifting or saling, I am on the lookout for cupcake picks. I adore cupcake picks. I just love to look at them. I don't think I would ever use my vintage cupcake picks on actual cupcakes for fear they would be thrown away. (That would be another plastic fork fight.***) I've been searching everywhere hoping to find some Halloween Cupcake Picks. I've looked at the thrift stores, yard sales, anywhere I look for vintage goodies. One place I never dreamt to took was in my own garage.
Two orange cats and two orange witches.
Two skull and crossbones picks, a funny pumpkin ring and a trio of skeletons.
Eight black cats. (I know these are such awful photos. I didn't think to take them while the sun was still out).
One funny black cat head. I love this one most of all.
I remember buying thesepumpkin ring cupcake toppers when I was a child, packing them away and thinking, "I bet when I find these when I am in my 40's that I won't even remember them!" Okay, none of that is true. Except the whole "not remembering them" thing. I have no memories of these either. But, Mama likes!
***A few years ago, I hosted a Wedding Shower for The Bean's 4th grade teacher. I bought really nice heavy weight plastic forks at the Party Store for her shower. They were the loveliest Pepto-Bismol-ish Pink.
After the shower, I had a handful of the forks left, so I put them in the silverware drawer. One night we ate a piece of cake and used the pink plastic forks. The next day I was washing dishes and there were only two forks instead of three.
I asked The Bean what he did with his fork. He had put it in the sink with mine, he said.
I asked The Breadman what he did with his fork.
His response? He...he....he...he threw it away! "YOU THREW IT AWAY, YOU THREW IT AWAY????" The Bean and I shouted.
"It's disposable," he said.
"It's not disposable," I said.
