It's Here! Vintage Halloween!

It's here! And The Precious is beautiful!

And the beauty inside... So wonderful! I'm so happy I decided to get this for my Great Pumpkin Gift for myself, truly! I absolutely adore the history of Halloween and particularly love the Halloween of the 1920s and 1930s.

The liquidity of the little fantastical vegetable people, the ghosts, goblins and witches was so evocative of sweetness in a more innocent time.

I love the thought of the traditional games played in that era, the superstitions (how to discover who your husband will be was a favorite). This book documents it all it brilliant color.

I can visualize the homes, decorated with the latest from the famous Dennison's Bogie Book, dangling from the ceiling or decorating the tables.

If you can possibly get your hands on a copy - and I know that's hard these days - I would highly recommend it! It's gorgeous eye candy and such an inspiration!



  1. What a treat. I just love the Bogie Book.

    1. I would love to get my hands on an original copy from the 20's or 30's!
