Guess "Hoo" flew in...

You know I've been on a little bit of an Owl "kick" lately, so when I saw these two Halloween die cuts of owls at the Antiques Show last weekend, I had to snap them up. They flew in and perched here in the Entry Hall on my round mirror. LOVE any old die cuts and especially those from Halloween.

They join "Smiley" and a reproduction Halloween card

I know that original Halloween Postcards are really pricey. I had never even seen any in all the years of my flea marketing, until this last weekend. whoa...did I say pricey?
And here's a couple of pics from a great space at the Antiques Festival of the Ozarks this last weekend. "Come on In Antiques" from Seymour, Missouri. LOVE the "Boo"!!

We had a great time and even went back the next day to grab a few other things that we passed by on Saturday. The next show is in the Spring, try to make it if you can. There are so many great vendors.

If you haven't visited The Marketplace then scroll down to the last post to check out the great links.

Saying prayers for all in the wake of Sandy,


  1. Love your new owls. I spied an old coffin. Weird, but fun for Halloween.

  2. Love the funeral parking signs... I think! Your new to you die cuts are perfect on the mirror. Lovin' Mr. Smiley too.

  3. Debra,
    Whoo, too cute!!! The Funeral parking signs gave me a chuckle!!! No ever had to guess "back in the day", did they? Have a safe Halloween, dear friend!

  4. Love your vintage style Halloween decorations. I think owls are becoming so popular not just for Halloween but also Christmas decor. You should be able to keep owls out for a while now!

  5. I'm on an owl kick, too! Love the owl cut-outs you found...they look fantastic on the mirror.

  6. Love the owls! And vintage always wins my heart.....Sarah

  7. Amazing as always! Love the warm fall colours.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Hope to see you on my blog:)

  8. One of my favorite old jokes is about owls and ends with the punch line "not you fuzzy butt". Nuff said!

  9. Love the fun post today! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  10. The owls are a great addition to your display.
    Boy, would I like to go to that market. Now how do I get it all back to the UK?

  11. Love it Debra, not TOO spooky!!

    I have a bunch of Vintage Postcards I need to learn how to scan and share!!

    Have a Happy Halloween! Hugs!

  12. I love your new owl die cuts, lovely vibrant colors!
    Lots of fun stuff at the Antiques Festival, that gigantic 'BOO' is my favorite!

  13. Very cute and I love the photos of all the vintage Halloween goodies. :)

  14. I adore your owls!!! I passed up on a set of old Halloween die cuts at an antique shop because they only wanted to sell them as a set (for way too much money) and I only wanted a couple of the owls and a scarecrow. They've been on my mind ever since. I do love that Boo sign!

  15. Your new little owls are sooooo the whole vignette :o)
    Happy Halloween!

  16. Smiley is funny!, and you're Halloween grouping is cute! I didn't know old Halloween cards were pricey... and that BOO is great!


  17. Debra, I favor the vintage Halloween pieces too. I wish I had kept all the Halloween decorations that were part of my school things from my teaching years. ;-)
    Or better yet the Halloween things from my childhood.
    Happy Halloween..........Sarah
