This morning I found a bit of free time on my hands which is ubber rare. I decided it was the perfect time to drop in on one of my favorite local boutiques, The Market Shop, to peruse their Halloween offerings.
I came home with a few things. I plan to go back for more but for the sake of Mr Ghoulie's sanity I try to keep my Halloween shopping in small doses.
Today I picked up this dapper skeleton flour sack towel. Mr Ghoulie hates it when I buy decorative towels. He simply cannot understand why a towel cannot be used. I simply cannot understand why he can't understand that.
I also grabbed five of these little pumpkins. Very inexpensive and I love the way they did curly stems. Mr Ghoulie will not understand why I need more pumpkins. I say I always need more pumpkins.
Last I grabbed Hubert the ghost. He's so cute, in a creepy way. I love his little tuft of hair and the way he sits. He looks more scared than scary. Again, Mr Ghoulie will shake his head and roll his eyes. I say it's these quirky little obsessions of mine that make him love me. (If I tell him that often enough he will eventually believe it!)
This weekend I'm working on the to-do list for the Halloween season. I hope everyone in Ghoulieland is enjoying this last holiday weekend before Halloween.

Friday!!!!!!!!!!!! Time for another edition of Ghoulie Tunes.
The lineup today are songs that I highly suggest that you consider adding to your Halloween festivities. Don't believe me? Well then, listen in....
First up is Tom Lehrer with The Masochism Tango. I love the video with this version because it features two of my favorite people; Gomez and Morticia. This song was definitely made for them:
Got skellies? Louis Armstrong does. Great ditty called The Skeleton In The Closet:
Last, just for fun, is this comedic take on our fave holiday, Halloween by Stephen Lynch:

I was in Hobby Lobby the other day looking for something to put in a pottery urn that resides on my coffee table. I found these in the dried and natural plant section:
Is it just me or do they look like spines from some yet undiscovered lifeform?
