Halloween at the Huntington Community Thrift Shop 2011

Had to post this photograph that I took today at the Huntington Community Thrift shop.  One never knows what will be walking in the front door.   A lovely volunteer, Harriet, greets a Raven named Glenn.  Can't make this stuff up.
The Thrift Shop had been hopping all week with high school and college kids looking for elements to be used in costumes.  Next, we will be saving "ugly" sweaters for their next bout of holiday parties .

 This mantle was designed my daughter in Virginia.  She saw the unbleached coffee filter rosette garland on a black ribbon, in a crafts magazine, and completed her Halloween tableau with black candles, a spray painted terra cotta flower pot and branch, decorated with black birds, white bird house and bat, antique black ink engraved  prints, skeleton, snow globe, and very old silhouettes.   Great job!
