31 Days of Halloween: Vintage Halloween

If you've been reading much of my blog, you might know that I love all things vintage; clothes, cars, music, you name it. And Halloween is definitely included in that category!

I have always loved Halloween decorations, but there is just something about these die cut decorations that gives me the creeps in a totally good way! They straddle the line between spooky and genuinely scary and I LOVE that!
Don't mess around with this guy! He has a bone to pick with you! Get it?? 

I think we may have actually had one of these when I was a kid. I think we also had a vampire, witch and a werewolf that was actually fuzzy! 
I really miss some of the old Halloween party traditions, like bobbing for apples or carving pumpkins! We still have a pumpkin carving party every year! 
Do you think this is sanitary? 

That's an awfully big knife, kids....
And the costumes! These range from adorably cheap & cheesy.....
 Does King Kong really need a picture of himself on the costume to sell it? Like they wouldn't know it was him without it? 

 To truly strange....
He's a side of bacon. And he won first prize. Maybe it was a slow year? 
 To just plain disturbing!
I don't even know, folks! 
So classy and retro
I'm going to leave you with something I considered adding to yesterday's blog. I don't know if anyone but my brother and I will remember this but we used to love the Groovie Goolies (not to be confused with the band the Groovie Ghoulies), especially around Halloween! Groovie Goolies ran from 1970-1972 and was a spinoff of Sabrina the Teenage Witch (another favorite), which I think makes it officially "vintage". 

Just so you know, Wolfie was my favorite. 

Happy Haunting, friends!!
