Halloween at Home Sense
I love Home Sense. They already have cast their voodoo on me with their trinkets, pillows, glassware and pretentious gourmet food items that no one really needs (yet I feel empty inside because I don't have them). And now...now they have me right where they want me.
While I was aware that Home Sense always had cookie cutters and aprons for kooky, creepy kitchen creations, I did not know that their buyer has gone out to find what I would call upscale props. Not only are they inexpensive and interesting, they are well made. Solid. Heavy. And quite attractive.
On the far left in the picture is a Frankenstein candle holder. I also picked up the Dracula one but passed on the witch and mummy made in the same style (can't afford it all, can I?).
In the middle is a scorpion decoration. The wood base is a good weight and the finish is nice. If you don't want a scorpion, you can choose the spider instead. Don't like it in black? They come in silver as well (still with the black base).
On the right is a skull candle holder. You can get him in silver as well, along with a matching skeleton hand.
Go look before it's all gone (you know it's always luck at Home Sense since they never know what they are getting in and when). Search through the goodies I haven't mentioned, like the knight's helmets, the fireplace mantle decorations, the gummy brains, the cobweb candelabras, the...excuse me folks. I need to get back to Home Sense.
