Decorating the house for Halloween






















Actually, I decorated weeks ago but wanted to wait till this week to share. I am an eclectic collector of things. One of the things I love to collect is vintage Halloween and fortune telling games. I have been collecting off and on for about 10 years. I have more things but I don't always display them year after year. I try to rotate some of my things as I don't want to over do it in my living room. This year I was lucky enough to finally acquire the Chiromagica game. I have tried to procure this game for many years. I actually had won it 5 years ago on ebay only to get it in the mail in pieces. How disappointing! But I won it on ebay a few months ago once again and it's in wonderful condition. It's quite old. It was made by McLoughlin Bros., circa 1870. Many times I wish I had a bigger house again to house all my things! When I lived in Minnesota I had a huge old Victorian and I miss it terribly. Here are some pictures of my display this year. I love my little winking black cat. I found him at an antique show in Delaware when I went back home for a visit. He has the most unique face!
