What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 243: Halloween House


Etsom·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

Halloween decorations are pretty hard to get really wrong. They can be cute or creepy, gorgeous or ugly, homemade or movie-quality, casual or a big deal, stylish or, well, not. But for the most part, practically anything goes. Of course, I still found a few duds, but not as many as I expected!

That’s definitely going to make an impact! By Mmurmures
More disturbing than scary, especially when you take into account that the maker also suggested it would make a good birthday or Valentine’s Day present…
I’m not often into wreaths, but this one is fantastic! By ShabbyWhiteDoor
It’s not clear whether this thing is stuffed or actual taxidermy, but it’s from the eighties, so either way, I’m not decorating with it.
“Adult Shawl of skulls.” It’s scary, but not the way they mean.
Positively yummy luminary! By MasonRabbitsPaperie
Poor thing looks more chilly than scary. Somebody get him a sweater.
I love skulls and I love fluorite, so this thing is making me positively tingly! By CrystalLandUS
She seems less like a “scream queen” and more like a cry for help
CreativeFlag, for all your curmudgeonly Halloween needs!
Nope, nopity, nope-nope-nope. Also no.
I am a total sucker for a velvet pumpkin, and these colors are fantastic. But how would you ever choose? By YourHeartsContent
I have seen Hocus Pocus many, many times, But I don’t recall seeing Renee Zellweger.
Very impressive, but you’d need to lock it up the rest of the year to keep it from infiltrating your dreams… By NetherworldOddities

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!

  1. First of all, thank you for not including any clowns. Much appreciated. That baby doll head comes a bit close, what with its lead paint face and rosy cheeks, but it technically is not a clown so I am surviving. That cat is also horrific. I absolutely love the bat wreath. I normally only have a wreath on the door for Christmas but that bat wreath could persuade me that Halloween deserves one too. I actually also really like that little clay goblin. He’s adorable.
