I heart Glitterville

One of my favorite gift lines Glitterville is back! It’s been out of commission the past few years, but now they have all kinds of cool new releases that I absolutely love! Check out their site as well as the Ghoul Gallery (which offers up a helping of new and old Glitterville giftware items as well as some other amazing Halloween gift finds). These gift items I love so much cause they are a mixture of whimsy and silliness. Just like how I roll this time of year!

Awesome Halloween finds at Coffee Times

A very quick post tonight, but wanted to check in with some super cute finds they had at my local Coffee Shop, Coffee Times! They always have the best and most clever Halloween gifts there!

Alligator Dish with Leg Spreader

The dish could hold crackers or the like or spread I guess. The leg pulls out and has a spreading knife on the end. So funny!

Glitterville Buckets
I heart glitterville!
They’ve actually had these the past couple of years, but I can never get enough of them!

Skull Chandelier

They always have a couple of high price ticket items like this skull chandelier. Me likey, but can’t affordey.

Skull Decanter

This is so awesome too! Love the shiny black look. I’d probably put Kool-aid in here (drinking’s not my thing)…ha, but not the Jim Jones variety.

Skeleton Journal
Cool Halloween journal
Coolest.journal.ever. I just wish it wasn’t $35. I always have good intentions with journals like these, but I would want to have nice handwriting and drawing skills to actually mark in this, and I’m lacking both!

Well, I still haven’t figured out a costume!!! Time is running out, Swellions.


2 great Halloween finds

While I was up in Chicago a couple of weeks ago, I stopped in this store called Climate. It was the most adorable little gift shop. It had all kinds of goodies like my favorite Dept. 56 Glitterville line as well as some Fred products and Two’s company finds.

Well, anyway, these were two of my spooky purchase that I couldn’t pass up. I buy a little something each year for Halloween to add to my collection. I also make tons of stuff as you notice each Tuesday to add to my growing stash (about to get it out and I’ll post a pic just to show you how out of control it really is). Well without further ado…

Aren’t they awesome?

WEll, planning on having another fun project for you Swellions tomorrow. I wanted to work on it tonight, but time got away from me. I did work on organizing and throwing away a whole slew of stuff i designed from many years ago that I had tons of copies of and design school mailer stuff (I never went) that I have no intention of pursuing any more.

Until tomorrow Swellions!
