Betty's Full of Guys...

...Halloween guys.
 
We couldn't wait any longer.
 
 
 
 
This year she got decked out early.
 
 
 
 
She turned out to be a great vintage display case for many
 
favorite Halloween guys that seem to just
 
get lost around the house with kids.
 
 
 
 
With some of my collection housed in here,
 
they remain corralled but still on view.
 
 
 
 
Old guys, really old guys, and new guys that look like old guys
 
is my kinda Halloween style.
 
 
 
 
Betty, my cabinet, hasn't been with us that long,
 
but she's like an old friend.
 
We talk about her all the time.
 
I think she rather likes it, as she has the opportunity to get dressed up for
 
the seasons now.
 
 
 
 
 
When we see a piece just like her, we always say-
 
"There's a Betty!" 
 
or 
 
 "Did you see how much they want for that Big Betty?"
 
One time someone emailed me and asked me what a Betty was!
 
Cute!  She's just favorite cabinet.
 
 
 
 
 
I'll be sharing with:

A great display and you have some really neat pieces. I guess we sort of do things opposite here as Thanksgiving for us is in early October so Halloween is not something I decorate for until later in October.

I love your "Betty". She is just perfect. My grandgirls call their Auntie "Meme". For show and tell my daughter said she was going to bring her Meme to school. All the kids wondered what a Meme was!

I can see you are all ready for Halloween...not here yet! xo Diana

I love Betty, and I love your Halloween decor. There's something about that period of vintage Halloween decor that really captures the "trick" part of trick and treat for me!

Betty is charming! I adore all those vintage and vintage looking Halloween pieces. They make me smile.
I was a kid in the 50s with black cats and Halloween noise makers just like some you have. Wish my mom had kept all those things. LOL
