Last November, I scouted some after-the-fact Halloween decor sales and came up with a few nice treasures. I've decided that if I am diligent and buy things that didn't sell after the holiday(s) and I pack them away with the rest of the holiday-themed things, when we unpack the following years, we get a few surprises from things that I forgot we bought. So, in a sense, it feels like we have some brand-new things!
This bird, came from the Martha Stewart Collection from 2010 and I forgot that I bought it for Nat. He's taken a great spot on our mantle and will stand guard throughout the Halloween season.
