Pumpkins and Jack-O-Lanterns, Tricks, And Treats

I'm starting off today's post with this cute 1938 advertisement for Karo syrup featuring the Dionne Quintuplets:
 So cute!
I often save odd scraps of paper just because they appeal to me.
The "Trick Or Treat" one you see above was, I believe, from a dog food advertisement, of all things!
 I just liked it, so I cut it out and scanned it.
All through the year, I like to pick up assorted little things at thrift shops to use for holiday decorations.
 Each of the pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns you see below sitting beneath the photo display stand were found since last Halloween:
I scanned this cute image out of a vintage child's alphabet book:
The next two images are from a 1980's Paas Brand Halloween Makeup Kit insert.
 It had a little story that went with it:
Not too spooky "haunted house":
I came home on my birthday, and after I got back, we went to the grocery store. This is my Birthday/Halloween cupcake from the bakery at Safeway:
And, one last thing - I also found a cute pair of socks for Halloween, (new with tags) at a thrift store:
If you come and trick or treat at my door, you may just find me wearing these!

I saw the cutest thing. Your cupcake reminded me. Someone used candy pumpkins in the back of a toy truck as one of her decorations. It was really cute. I like the idea of scanning things that appeal to us too.
