Spiders, and Pumpkins, oh my!

The tea room is decorated for the Halloween season... spiders, lots of spiders, eerily crawling up the lace curtains in the dining room.   And vintage 1931 Beistle paper jack 'o lanterns are tucked here and there among the tea room nick knacks. The Beistle company is located in Shippensburg, PA. These die cut paper decorations that feature bats, cats, and witches were salvaged from the neighbor's garbage pile almost two decades ago.  Just recently, a similar pair was spotted in a local antique mall marked 'rare' and sported a price tag of $180.00 for two. Must remember to handle these with care!

All your orange tea tins make perfect fall decor! How lucky you were to find those paper jack-o-lanterns before they got hauled off by the trash collector!

I love the things I have pulled from the trash in the past. Your vintage pumpkins are the very best! Of course spiders must crawl up the lace curtains. How fun!

How fun to have your tea room decorated for Halloween. And how fortunate that you saw the vintage jack-o-lanterns and rescued them. Happy Halloween!
