New Fall/Halloween Treasures

I wanted to share with you some last minute Fall and Halloween Buys!!

But first, I want to Thank Jes, over at Strangers and Pilgrims on Earth, for featuring my post,
 Been Playing with Pumpkins Again , as one of the features from the Special Pumpkin Edition of The Art of Home Making  Mondays Party!
Thanks so much, Jes!!

Please take some time to stop by and link up to this lovely party!!

But first, I want to show you what I bought at the Auxiliary hosted Thrift Shop where I work.

This lovely platter........
And this matching vegetable bowl were only $1.50 each!!
And this copper leaf , which looks perfect in my kitchen , was only 50 cents each!!
When we went to Gabes about a week ago, I found these ornaments in the Christmas section and I added them to my Living Room Autumn Tree ........

A Bird......
A Burlap Squirrel......
And a Fox......
They were only $2.99 each.......

Michael's has marked down all their Fall and Halloween merchandise to 70 % off and I had a coupon for an additional 20 % off all sales........

I bought this black Halloween Tree for under $5.00...
It was originally $19.99!!
 I love the way it looks in this vignette on top of my Dining Room hutch!!
  And I picked up these 2 little houses at The Dollar Tree and added them to my Halloween Village.....
 They were all that they had left.......

I also bought this sign at Dollar Tree........
And I found the perfect place for it, hanging right above my Potion Table!!
Also in Michael's for 70 % off plus an additional 20% off......
I bought these 2 leaf ornaments which cost less than $2.00 each......
Here is what they look like on my Autumn Tree......
I think I may glitter them up a bit with some gold glitter.......
 I bought these bones which came out to 89 cents each!!
I put one here .....
And here......
Now is the time to pick up great deals for Fall and Halloween decorating for next year......

Joe was in Target this morning ( the day after Halloween) and bought these things for 50% off.......

Have I mentioned before how much Joe likes to shop????????
 These bones were only $1.00 each!!
 I placed the skeleton foot here......
 Edison light with blood drips!!
 Priced down to $7.50....I may use these on my Halloween Tree next year.....

And a box of 6 skulls, 3 different kind with gold,orange and silver webbing on each......
 6 for $3.00!!

I will most likely add a ribbon and make them into ornaments.......

Now is the time to get out there and scope out the Clearance sales after Halloween and add to your Fall/Halloween decor for next year.......

 I hope you will come by and visit again!!

And thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!
