Halloween is Just Around the Corner...

...literally! Our local cosmetic and fancy shampoo store -- that's how I think of it -- has turned into a Halloween Super Store and I had to share the pictures with you.


When I walked by yesterday I was greeted by this gentleman handing out advertising coupons. 



This gentleman greeted me at the door.
 
An amazing assortment of costumes

Also around the corner is another fabulous giveaway. I will announce later this week and please, stop by. There will be three prizes and they are so useful and fun for upcoming holiday festivities. I feel very fortunate to be able to share this great giveaway and so excited. 

It's been a nice weekend. We've had beautiful weather and I've had several long walks in the neighborhood. I stopped at a new yogurt place -- yogurt and toppings by the ounce -- and discovered a new favorite flavor, red velvet low-fat yogurt. I caught on a number of errands and did a lot of closet decluttering. I'm off to Macy's in a little while on what I hope will not be a futile errand to replace my somewhat ragged black wool skirt. Wish me luck!

Looks like a fun place to shop for costume pieces! I ALWAYS dress up and add to my costume collection when the stores put items on clearance!

Enjoy your shopping trip, can't wait for the giveaway:) HUGS!

I hope you had some success with your shopping adventure today. It is getting to be that time of year when we think about warmer clothing for sure. I was just thinking how I rarely wear a skirt at all anymore. We were blessed with a sunny day here today. They are getting fewer and fewer.

I can't even imagine New York at Halloween! Is that a permanent change for that store or just for the season? Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers.

Bert just cracks me up!
Glad you were able to get caught up and get out in the beautiful weather. Ours was great too.

Hope your shopping trip to Macy's yielded some BIG results. I hate coming home empty handed. Superman and Bert were bigger than life. What nice greeters. Everyone is in the Halloween spirit. Did you say red velvet low-fat yogurt? OMG, sounds delicious. Take care.

Dear Buttercup, Thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit. Thank is quite a young man that greeted you at the costume store!! It has been a lovely weekend. The weather is being very kind. I can't believe where this month has gone. Wherever it went it went too fast. Well, good luck find that skirt. It will be a nice afternoon either way, Macy's is always fun. Blessings, Catherine xo

Marie said...

Good luck with the skirt Buttercup!! I can only imagine shopping at Macy's. I have dreamt of such since I used to watch the Thanksgiving Parades as a child. One day I will visit New York and see all these wonders you share with us! xxoo

Praying you found the skirt. I detest shopping for something in particular - - - usually find things easier when I don't have to have them.

I've had the good pleasure of being in NYC on Halloween and enjoyed how everyone was so into it! We sure don't get "greeters" like that here in Mississippi! :)

Hello dear Buttercup,
How fun to be greeted by these two gentlemen!
Yum, the new yogurt flavor sound mighty good! I hope you found a beautiful coat to keep you warm, it will be getting cool for you very soon, won't it?
Hugs, Cindy
