It’s that annual time of year when Martha Stewart’s October issue arrives, San Francisco starts to warm up (briefly), and movie marathons begin to fluctuate between axe murderers and stories of the undead (usually told by Tim Burton). Halloween is coming!!! Stores have gigantic bags of candy, cheap costumes and cheaper decorations in stock. To celebrate the season, Madame Leona told me that there might be two or three Halloween focused posts in HelloKeltie’s future.

As a fan of the Halloween season, with dreams of having an East Coast or Southern Halloween (almost as often as dreams of a British Christmas), I take my decorations for the season very seriously. Steering clear of the gory Spirit Halloween store gags and cutesy country clutter, my cauldron is full items that feel vintage, sleek, classic and creepy. In the least DIY post you have to look forward too, below is a selection of ready to go items to whet your appetite for the season. I hope it goes without saying, these don’t all need or should be used together 🙂

Pumpkins are the reason for the season (maybe not, but they are e’rywherez). Bejewel them with some glitter and some beads and you got me

    I want all of these things, but for everyday use.
