AAHal8First up in my mini-series of items I found while cleaning out the house over the past week…

…and quite fitting for today, are a bunch of Halloween decorations.

One of the boxes I found in the attic was full of all the holiday decorations my mother saved from when I was kid. Included in this box were some vintage cardboard Halloween decorations we used to pull out every year. I had not seen these in years, but as soon as I saw them I was transported back to my childhood Halloweens.

These decorations are just pieces of printed cardboard, but they were the coolest things every year when we pulled them out the box. The skeleton (below) was put on the front door every year to greet the trick-or-treaters, and my brother and I used to fight over who would have the honor of hanging it.

Here are few of the pieces I found, and saved from the dumpster…
