#ThriftScoreThursday Halloween Features

 

Hey Guys!

I don't think I've taken a moment to ask you how your Halloween was? It's been a busy week here what with 2 giveaways going on right now, and a third tomorrow! If you want to check them out, there's a shot at $50 to minted.com here and $75 worth of DIY and craft supplies from yours truly here. And then all of the insane work going into the bathroom remodel (there's tons of thrifted goodies I've been holding back but I can't wait to start sharing them next Thursday!). We didn't even do a proper Halloween. My kid sat with a bowl of candy on my mom's porch perplexed why he had to give it to other kids.

But, by the looks of things on Instagram, it looked like there was a lot of fun going on. Sandra from @vintausshop shared a sweet photo of her daughter in a vintage ballerina costume. What an amazing find! There certainly wasn't anything that cool at my thrift store. And the makeup is adorable!

Love this little girl and so happy we could find this vintage ballerina outfit for $4! Perfect #halloween costume ❤️?[/caption]

And then check out this jolly skeleton decor @mariaski63 scored. And I love the way she set him up for the photo. Very reminiscent of dia de los muertos decor I've seen. My mom has had several of these paper skeletons with the movable joints over the years. So nice this one made it's way to a new home instead of a trash bin!

I have him doing a little yoga to relax, loosen his joints & fit in a square! ?◾️?◼️? #skeleton @mariaski63 Bonehead. Mr. Bones is about four feet tall & getting ready for Halloween.

What about this aviator costume from Hayley? Isn't it phenomenal? Everything but the cap came from the thrift store, but she mentions the cap came with a bit of ingenuity so all around a stellar costume!

[caption id="attachment_1640" align="aligncenter" width="650"]@hudginsathome So I'm an old woman and fell asleep, phone in hand, trying to post this last night when it was ACTUALLY Thursday. Regardless, I present one of my favorite costumes for #tbttrickortreat from way back when cell phones still had crappy cameras... Amelia Earhart! ✈??? Additionally, my friend Laura @yellowcottagenc asked to see some #thriftscorethursday... Here ya go! Everything was thrifted for this, except the aviator cap, which my dad made with an old baseball cap and leather scraps. @hudginsathome So I'm an old woman and fell asleep, phone in hand, trying to post this last night when it was ACTUALLY Thursday.

And the last Halloween themed feature I have for you today is this beautifully ominous vignette from @creativelicence. I am enjoying the black and white. I spy what looks like vintage milk glass, which I normally wouldn't associate with Halloween, but it's been paired perfectly in this set up.

And because I just simply could NOT let this #thriftscorethursday pass without showing off this BEAUTIFUL sofa spotted by @theeventmaker. It would have come home with me. My husband wouldn't have said anything aloud and all would have been magical with the world.

And that's it from me on this beautiful #thriftscorethursday! I'm skipping sharing a find of my own this week because I don't have a finished (or almost finished) bathroom to show them off in. And I really want the full effect! So, I'll see you next week?

Don’t forget to stop by all of the fab hosts today. We have awesome guest hosts this week, so be sure to visit them, too and check them out! Have a great day and happy thrifting!
