It took a little time to get the Halloween decorations down. Which, as it turned out, was a good thing. That way, I was able to pack a little something more into the Halloween box.
On Saturday, I picked up something totally unexpected at a church rummage sale. On top of a table of otherwise unremarkable stuffed animals and used toys was a vintage child-size witch's cape with very cool flocked graphics. I know I held my breath as I reached for it and hoped that another hand wouldn't get there before mine.
I'm not sure how much it was, because I paid $1.50 for it, a dish towel, a made in Japan stuffed Santa and a half-dozen sewing patterns. So, maybe 50 cents????
I packed it right on top of the other Halloween items so that it would be the first thing I see next October. I know it's sure to bring just as big a smile to my face as it did on Saturday.
