Hearse Drama and New Halloweenies

This has been a crazy week for me.  Back in September of last year (!) my hearse was taken to have some bodywork and complete repaint.  Unfortunately, the guy doing the work had numerous illnesses and now the prognosis isn't so good, and he barely did anything to it in the time he had it. (He also overstated the progress he had made, which I wasn't too happy about.)  So another hearse guy and I found someone else to do the work, which meant more money as a deposit (no idea if I'll ever see any of my previous deposit again), the act of checking out the guy's work, going to the garage of the first guy and finding that almost nothing had been done...ugh.  Anyway, this guy has promised I'll get her back in mid-September, so hopefully in time for a few October car shows.

So, on to the good stuff!  First, Michael's has their Halloween stuff in.  We went last Friday and looked over everything, then bought a couple of crows (50% off coupon * 2 of us).

 
Shelves and shelves of goodies!




 
Totally dig the zen skeletons.





You'll see these again in a minute.

I really wanted these based on the pictures online, but all the orange and purple is glittery.  I hate glitter in my Halloween!

 
I also planned on getting that "Queen of Halloween" sign, but again, glitter.
 
And here are the awesome crows, hanging out on my mantle.  They get the honor of being the first decorations displayed for 2017.

 
 
Second, today I ordered this beauty from Victorian Trading Co., except I ordered it from eBay in order to get free shipping.  Well of course, when I went to get you this link to it on their website, I find it's on sale!  It was full price only a few days ago, so I didn't think to check, thinking I would do better financially by using eBay.  Anyway, it's too late to cancel, so I sent them a message asking for a price adjustment.  Crossing my fingers, because I HATE to pay more than I have to!  Either way, I still love it and can't wait to receive it.  I'd been wanting it since last year, so I deserved it, right?
