I'll been looking on eBay at vintage Halloween pieces and the prices people are paying for pumpkins and cat's that are in bad shape. I was reading in Country Home about collecting , and about fake or find vintage Halloween. Antiquing expert Kathryn Precourt tells how to know if a Halloween piece is truly vintage. She said also buy from a reputable dealer .That Halloween collectibles were used and rarely kept,so be wary. She list reputable fraudulent eBay dealers on the web. Here is a good site by Mark Ledenback he tells who is fake or what . After reading his article I sure did learn and your never to old to learn .Here is his site .Another freebie too!!!!!!!!!!

Here the little black cat that came in my swap package from Debra S. He made his self at home here. We just love him.And I love the orange paper ornament . Harrison made up a Halloween box for a swap , said he was going to get a toy back. A HALLOWEEN toy , so now I have to fill a box for him and his brother.
Almost done with the witch hat , made a few extras , a couple for Harrison and Dominic, Tamilia ( my Daughter) and LITTLE sister who the same age as Tamilia. Now Stacy my oldest son is just a little older then Charlene (sister). Talk about stair steps they were, and everyone thought the were all mine. They still ask how my daughter , Charlene they just can't believe she my sister.

Cut a triangle shape with the bottom edge being curved.You want this large enough to make it into a cone to fit your head use a paper plate for pattern of brim leaving 1-2 " of the outside edge of the plate showing. Cut circle in middle of the plate leaving 1-2'ridge on outside,bend your pasteboard into a cone shape, so the bottom edge fits snuggly into place , leave 1/2 -1" of the bottom edge of the cone shape sticking out through the bottom of hole, cut small slits every few inches fold down and glue or tape them to the underside of paper plate.You should now have a hat shape.
