Happy Hauntings





This old vintage tattered lunch pail
became our Halloween treat box last year.
(Now you know why I have had vintage lunch boxes on the brain.
 See yesterday's post.)






My two sisters and I loved watching
The Munsters 
when we were kids
and when I saw this last year,
 it totally reminded me
 of Herman.

















So I grabbed a paintbrush
and some silver paint
and made it official.











What is your all time
most favorite candy?






 Happy Halloween Friends!

Hi Alison, Reece's cups and I have had more than my share this week because I am handing them out tonight. Herman's lunch box is very appropriate. Happy Halloween. ♥Olive

What a cute idea using the lunch box! I read once that Reese's Peanut Butter cups are the number one candy parents take from their children's halloween buckets and eat themselves! I loved watching the Twilight Zone!

Love that lunch bucket. I've had one for several years waiting for some inspiration to hit... anything chocolate, but I'm trying to ignore it this year! Have a fun day! xoxo

Alison, what a great way to serve up the goodies! Love the lunch box!! I always go for the Snickers first! Mmmmmm! Especially, the minis!! Just pop 'em in your mouth and savor the goodness!

I love that lunchbox! My favorite treat when I was a kid was Kraft caramels. Today it's mini chocolate bars - not that I go out collecting. I just make sure I buy a good sized bag for the 5 or 6 that come to the door and I get to eat the leftovers. Have a great day! Pamela

I love reese cups (the mini's are wonderful too) and 100 grand candy bars. Those are my chocolate pics. For tart candy, I love smarties. See, I can't pick just one. I have such a sweet tooth! This is a dangerous holiday for me.

Alison, if you giving out my very favorite Mounds bars, I'll be there! Loved the Munster's. What a great idea.

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

That is so funny! I loved Herman and I really loved Grandpa coming up from under the stairs.
Almond Joy, Milk Duds, Milky Ways and Sugar Babies for me!
