Over the river and through the wood, to Grandmother's house we go! Yep, I was visiting my 99 year old Grandmother recently and was helping her go through some of her holiday items. I ran across this nifty old Beistle scarecrow packed away with old Christmas and Easter decorations. This guy is fun enough, but we kept on digging down in the closet...or as I call it, her time machine closet!
Sure enough we found more Halloween stuff. Some homemade cardboard stencils! She made them back in the 1940s for a Halloween party for my Mom and Uncle. I just love the simple Halloween shapes!
Later in the day we found some of her scrapbooks. She's been scrapbooking since the 1930s!
