*Tried to post this two weeks ago when my typing problem started!
Here's a few fun things that I found during one of my recent trips to Michaels :)
Hope you enjoy!
The Spooky Town collection has really stepped it up this year, with more traditional Halloween themed pieces, unlike the last few years, where everything was really brightly colored carnival type pieces. There's a really neat bell tower with spinning gears and a fun wedding chapel of sorts that plays a quirky little tune that I just can't get enough of :) So far, I've purchased a very cool Angel of Death monument, which has flapping wings and wicked lighting :)Of course all of the pieces are pricey and I was fortunate enough to find a 50% off coupon when I bought my piece. Full price was $50.00. I think that they've gone a bit over-board with pricing these pieces.
Their assortment of paper mache pieces this year are fun too. I'm really digging the little paper mache JOL pails, like the one in the last picture. I may have to get a few to paint a la Pumpkinrot/Pumpkin Hollow style, with the burnt out looking eyes and mouth. I think that would look really neat. I might even add a flicker candle to the inside for extra effect :)
More pictures to come!
