Vintage Black Friday, Halloween Fun

Here we are again for Vintage Black Friday. Time to look into the deep dark recesses of our abodes and find those things here-to-for, kept in secret and in silence. Those of us who covet "black" have somewhat felt like the proverbial "black sheep". But "Nevermore" quoth the Raven. We can take our rightful standing in all things "Vintage". And thanks to Jill at Gypsy Brocante, we can even flaunt our eccentricities for all blogdom to admire.
For this edition I thought I would share some fun; a little vintage fun, for the season, in black.

"Pssst. Lady... Yes you. Come on over here,
 and give a gal a little assistance."

"I'm stuck in this old black birdcage,
and I think there may be a mistake."

"You see, I'm a regal bird of sorts, a raven.
 I have inadvertantly been detained in this
 contraption, when I have alot of exciting
Halloween soirees to attend."

"See, I am wearing my crown,
so I can be Queen of the Halloween Ball!"

"Whoops, could you help me here?
I seem to have it on
 backwards. A little assistance please!

"Thank you so much, Yes, so very much.
My jeweled brooch needs to show, you see!
Now, if you could just help me extricate myself,
 I'll be off!"

Here's a little friend, a cat of sorts,
making himself comfortable
on an old black church pew... mew.

And now in the basket!

"Smiley" is here also, dancing atop a vintage
silver tray in the kitchen.
Great teeth!
Cute black and white costume.

Now, this is one clown I like!

This little girl is ready with her costume
 at Spring Creek.

Old black vintage frame with a magazine cover print.

And Miss Scaredy Cat hanging
 around on the china cupboard.

Black metal vintage-look sign for fall.

And reproduction vintage postcards by
 Ellen Clapsaddle,
on an old photograph album.

Hope no one has minded
that I've bent the rules just a smidge,
 being close to Halloween,
 it's time to have some fun!

Have a walk on the "Black" side!
