Vintage Halloween Blog Party

Welcome everyone to the 2010 Vintage Halloween Blog Party.

I love hosting these Vintage Holiday Parties. This party completes a whole year of being a hostess. I started with Vintage Christmas almost a year ago!

It has given me an opportunity to meet many lovers of vintage and to see hundreds of wonderful holiday treasures. Hopefully you have enjoyed yourselves too!

I have sold most of my vintage holiday decorations over the years, but I still have this full size vintage skeleton that came from the Estate of a local school teacher.

Here he is hanging on my front door.

I have recently sold this vintage black cat key holder, but Halloween means black cats to me so I wanted to share it.

I took it right off the kitchen wall at an Estate Sale. Isn't it cute???

Now it is your turn to share your Vintage Halloween Treasures. Keep in mind that this is a blog party to share your ViINTAGE items. Be sure to visit the other participants and leave comments so they know you have been there.

Here are the simple instructions to link up to the party:
* just copy/paste the web address of the specific blog post, not your blog home page.
* add a title of the project in the appropriate box.
* choose the best picture so we can easily see what you have to share.
(it will give you an opportunity to choose a picture when you are linking up)


I request that you link back to this post in your post or on your sidebar:
That way more people can come and join the party!!
Use Mr. Skull, and copy the address of this post and add it to top or bottom of your post and/or sidebar.

  2. Hi Joan, Thank You for hosting today I was so looking foward to this. It is a lot of fun to see collections of fellow collectors who like antiques. Have a good weekend.....Julian

  3. Thanks Joan, for hostessing another great holiday party! I'm so happy you decided to do it. That key holder is such a perfect decoration. Don't you miss it?! I wish I was the one that bought it from you!
    Happy Halloween!

    Jeanine, ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!

  5. I am glad you saved some of your vintage Halloween things. I have not seen many of these. However, when I was growing up such as these decorations were not around.

  6. I think as a kid we had a skeleton like that!! I sure wish we still had it!! Thanks for the memory. Happy VTT!

  7. I am enjoying all the great Vintage Halloween items. I probably have a few packed away somewhere myself. Happy Spook Day to everyone :)


  8. Joan,
    Thanks for hosting the party. I am looking forward to going around to see all the Halloween vintage goodies everyone has.
    Love the Skelly on the door. I think I have some sort of memory about that!?!?
    Thanks for sharing.

  9. The black cat key holder is just fabulous. Sadly I have no vintage Halloween objects unless you count Fenton black onyx. ♥olive

  10. I remember those full scale skeletons from when I was a kid-too fun! Thanks for hosting:@)

  11. Your little black cats key holder is really cute!
    Thanks so much for hosting this party!

  12. How fun. I can't wait to browse through everyone's collections. Thanks for hosting!

  13. Joan, the black cat key hook would fit right into my house of black cats out for Halloween.
    Fun to see what everyone has to share. My things all have a vintage feel, but can't say that they are actually vintage. Most have been in my Halloween box for 20+ years, but many are from recent years from artists who are creating vintage inspired pieces. Otherwise, I would have joined right in with this last party. It's been a fun year! Thanks for hosting. ~ Sarah

  14. Thanks for hosting another great party! Sometimes last minute works out just fine! I do love viewing all your goodies. You might recognize the bowl on my fireplace with the big pumpkin in it came from you and your Wheaton days! Happy Halloween!! Donna..the 3rd sister

  15. Oh, I was so happy to find your blog (from Vintage Inspirations) and see that you host vintage holiday parties. How fun! I will look forward to sharing some of our vintage items at the holidays. This year our Christmas tree is going to be all vintage Victorian.
    I'm posting some vintage Halloween for this party as soon as I can get my post up. Thanks for the fun blog parties.

  16. Love those kitties, thats a great piece!

  17. Thanks for hosting another fab blog party Joanne!I'm playing along with a post from last year cause actually I haven't got my act together this year, always so busy oh well. My fave vintage Halloween items are my black top hats and my vintage silhouettes. Well that might not be exactly Halloween items for some people, but for me they are!
    Cheers to you!
    xoxo~ Carola
