Halloween Features for #ThriftScoreThursday

Hey Guys!

It's the Thursday before Halloween and that means a couple of things for #ThriftScoreThursday. 1. We love any reason to get thrifty. Save a costume from a landfill, create a unique one from finds at the thrift store, or just spice up your seasonal decor with all the one of a kind treasures. Share those finds with the #thriftscorethursday hashtag on Instagram because we are 2. Planning a thriftily Halloween feature palooza next week. And 3. We have a plethora of awesome guest cohosts today to help spread the word about this fun feature.

My find. I'm not a Halloween person. I think the concept is weird (why are kids allowed to take candy from strangers one day a year?) and I don't enjoy dressing up. I don't find short term seasonal decorating fun for anything but Christmas (and that's because I start the day after Halloween). But, I found the most adorable little piece. Like, seriously so adorable. (And I think if you do enjoy Halloween you should absolutely save castaways from the landfill!)

Searching thrift stores for the perfect happy dose of halloween. found it in this sweet goofy ghost head. Thinking of putting incense or a tea light inside.

This little ghost head is too cute. He's got an opening in the back for I'm thinking a tealight. I like the idea of using him as an incense burner and just picked some up last night. He'll look charming with smoke coming out his eyes!

Features this week are the usual non themed thrifty finds because we're doing a whole party of features next week. But you can peep in on all items tagged right in the #ThriftScoreThursday feed! Here's what caught my eye:

Erica Reitman is always killin' it. Always. Like I probably feature her every week. Here are two of her finds that blow me away.

And then there's this wall hanging couch situation going on at Anna's crib. *heart eye emoji*

And then I have to have this amazing pink horse piggy bank. This is ridiculously awesome, right?
