On a lazy Saturday morning, the kids have cartoons (really loud skater-punk turtles who munch pizza and fight crime.) I have Etsy.
If you don’t already know and love this crafty/vintage website, it’s just the sweetest little oasis of homespun commerce. And you can find anything. I mean, seriously, ANYTHING.
I’ve sent off for everything from lovingly home-stitched Easter dresses to, well…Cousin Eddie earrings lovingly crafted from bottle caps.
So for Day 18 of my 31 Days of Fun/Funny/Funtastic Stuff for Families, I have curated a fall fabulous list of Halloween Not-Necessarily-Must-Haves for the Home — straight from the Etsy files. You will love deeply, occasionally laugh loudly, and quite possibly drain your PayPal account.
Let’s get you started.
Okay, for those who hate yielding machetes and scooping pumpkin guts every October, I say slap a mustache on your gourd and call it a DAY.
No Southern pumpkin with any decency would be caught dead without a monogram. (Yankee pumpkins, just stick with the mustaches. This is a language you do not speak.)
This spoon makes the perfect companion for your child’s morning CountChocula.
Nothing is scarier – or makes you feel better about your parenting — than Mommie Dearest. Now she’s scary.
For the cat-loving (or hating) family, this might be my very favorite find. If we only had a cat to torment…
Now let us bring our journey full-circle, beginning and ending this spooky trail of stupidity with bottle caps.
Etsy is a world of weird and wonderful wonders that begs to be explored.
It takes a whole lot less energy than a stupid corn maze. And you can busily burn through your stash of Twix trick-or-treat bars at the same time.
Now that’s good holiday fun.
