A Sly Surprise On The Thanksgiving Hutch

Once again the obligatory shot of the 
Thanksgiving hutch for 2015...
with a few new additions.
The Spode turkey centerpiece is now 
perched at the top of the hutch,
beside the stained glass rooster 
and floppy turkey.
 The pumpkin teapot is now on the botto...um...
that's strange...why do the turkeys seem 
so nervous and jumpy?
It's as if they're in a panic and being 
spooked by something?
Eh?...What's that you say?

What in tarnation does that rascal think he's up to? 
Thinks he's gonna have himself a free 
turkey dinner, I reckon!

He belongs out with the other wild critters,
like the owl ramekins, 
and the wild fox ramekins,
and the raccoon,
searching for food the honest way!
That there fox better skedaddle before my
hound dog catches his scent, or there's
liable to be a real kerfuffle!
Thanks for stopping by
I hope your Thanksgiving
plans are coming together nicely
and happy hunting!

A Foxy New Fall Cookie Jar

Look what we spotted at Walmart!
A very sweet little fox cookie jar.
From their "Mossy Oak" collection,
he was much too cute to just 
walk past without buying him! 
What a great price too at only $9.87!

After a little thought, we also grabbed
a couple of fox ramekins,
and a couple of owl ramekins
to add to our Thanksgiving 
woodland tablescape!
They had other items in the collection too.
A cute fox bowl, and
a fox plate for instance.
There were a few Mossy Oak 
owl pieces too.
get one here
Here's the owl cookie jar.
Also a Mossy Oak Leaf collection.
Here's their Leaf plate!

I liked it all but
Sam kept me to only the fox
and owl ramekins
and fox cookie jar.
Once I get the Thanksgiving
tablescape up and running I'll
share pictures!
Thanks for stopping by and
happy hunting!

Day of the Bathroom

Sam got in the Halloween spirit this year 
and added a few new things to her bathroom.
After a trip to Kohl's last month we discovered
some really cool Dia de los Muertos 
bathroom accessories.
 Sam just loved the colors 
so we quickly ordered a set.
A colorful shower curtain decorated with
sugar skulls, cat heads, and pumpkins,
a festive sugar skull rug and 
matching hand towels,
and a nifty sugar skull soap pump.
Our store didn't have the 
Day of the Dead items in stock,
but if we ordered them in store,to be 
sent to our home, shipping was free!
You can't beat that!
A little later on we discovered Target 
also had a few cool Day of the Dead 
items of their own!
These precious little figurines
came dressed in a verity of colors. 
Sam felt they would fit perfectly
into her new theme,
along with this green routed out tin 
candle holder also from Target.
I put an LED candle with timer inside
 to light for four hours every night! 
It creates a spooky glow 
till you turn on the light!
The holder matches her 
green mercury glass pumpkin 
from a few years ago.

Kohl's also had other Day 
of the Dead non bathroom items 
that were pretty hard to resist!
Check out this sugar skull and 
cat LED flashing figure,

this sweet little pillow,
this cool "welcome" string banner,
this bright and shiny table cloth,
and these cute sugar skull bowls!

For now, it will be hard but,
we'll stick to just the bathroom.
But hey, who doesn't need a welcome
banner in their bathroom?
Thanks for stopping by
and happy haunting!

The Headless Horseman Snow Globe

From HomeGoods...
to my home!
The Headless Horseman Snow Globe 
with LED lighted jack o' lantern.
It finally makes a frightfully awesome 
debut on the front room table.
After Pumpkin Rot featured the one he found 
on his blog HERE, I just had to have one too.
After a three year search with many dead ends,
we can now add "Snow Globe" to the 
Ozark list of larks in the collection.

Something Old, Something New, and Something Blue!

Now presenting the traditional
yearly photo of the Halloween hutch buffet,
featuring lots of "old" and 
a couple of "new" and even one thing blue.
It's the old blue haunted house cookie jar
we purchased from Dillard's in '02.
One of my first Halloween purchases 
when I started this bizarre collection. 
I had always displayed it on the
old computer cabinet in the past.
However with it gone, 
the jar needed a new home, I found a perfect spot 
on top of the hutch, precisely where the gingerbread 
house resides at Christmas time.
Over to the right we find something new,
 The Hallmark Dia De Los Muertos 
sugared cat head ornament.
What a happy smile and festive face!
It's always fun to incorporate a little more
Day of the Dead celebration into the mix.
Now for this year's piéce de résistance,
a gift from Sam for our anniversary,
and the prize of a frenzied Ebay bidding war.
The Dept 56 "Fearnology treat jar" by G. R. Ruesome 
with google eyes and laughing noise!
It has a high pitched laugh like a crazed lunatic 
when you lift the lid.
Inspired by the ancient art of Phrenology, the 
pseudoscience study of the structure of the skull to 
determine a person's character and mental capacity.  
The "Fearnology" Treat Jar is a fun new take 
on this zany old practice from the Dept 56
"Frankenstein's Lab" collection. 
The ceramic skull is divided into sections with
labels such as "Ghostly Reflective Faculties" 
and "Creepy and Ghoulish Sentiments".
Retired in 2007 and the ugliest thing ever, 
I've been wanting one for the past four years. 
And thanks to my loving wife, 
I can now add it to the rest of the Ozark
 Frankenstein and google eye collection!
Thanks for stopping by and happy haunting!
