...something wicked this way comes. Halloween! It's been too long since I got to wear a Halloween costume, but I still love this time of year.
The above are classic circa-1940s Halloween decoration designs by Beistle, a company that is still in the party goods and decorations business. I don't believe they still make the above designs, which I remember vividly from my own childhood in the 1970s-1980s. Sadly, my mom--who is the opposite of a hoarder--got rid of our old Halloween decorations ages ago, but I was able to purchase the above set from Retroween.com, which describes them as 1940s reissues.
I particularly remember and love that black cat with the monocle, the owl, and the cat hissing at the pumpkin head up on the post!
