Just Some Halloween And Fall Stuff

I found a nice vintage plate with an orange and black design, and thought it was perfect to make into a treat keeper for ghoulish goodies!
The fabulous foil label on this old bitters bottle that I found up in the cupboard (with old liquor bottles!) is just right for Halloween - I mean, really - "Old House" Orange Bitters with an orange and black label? Looks like something a witch might want to add to her cauldron's brew, don't you think?
These next two items were the prize I won at my daughter-in-law's baby shower. I came closest to guessing how many safety pins were inside the baby bottle. This lovely little autumn bird dish holds yummy butter toffee almonds from our local farmer's market, and that Vera napkin underneath was a previous thrift find:
And a Halloween Cupcake Decorating Kit! These two items were the perfect prize for me; I felt very lucky to win them:
I picked up some spider rings at the dollar store, and found the Fire King Peach Lustre sugar bowl at a thrift store (perfect to hold some Halloween candy), and I also found the black light bulbs:
Oh, and of course I had to dress Penny up in her "Halloween Outfit" again; she's in her goth-style black crinkled velvet dress with an orange Vera scarf. (These are for sale, by the way.)

Penny looks rather festive, doesn't she?
