I love collecting old decorations from Halloweens gone by. I can’t really explain why I like them so much, other than to say that it seems like Halloween might have been a bit more magical ‘back then’ (probably nonsense, but go with it), and these little objects capture the essence of that. One of my favourite Halloween mementos of all is this dress, but you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see that! Unfortunately, it seems vintage and antique Halloween decorations are very collectable, which means they can also be very expensive.
The little skeleton isn’t technically a Halloween decoration. I think it’s some kind of memento mori. I got it at the antique fair this weekend from this amazing vendor who had a huge selection of Victorian mourning pieces and other strange little curios. So cool. I wanted to buy everything!
