On the ninth day of Halloween

On the ninth day of Halloween, the Great Pumpkin gave to me:
Our very own copy of Goodnight Goon;
a plastic moon* and a witch on a broom;
and a vintage clown costume.

Like how I did that post Goodnight Moon style? Ha, I crack myself up. :-)

*I have no clue what these things are. They are marked Hong Kong, so I am guessing 1980's or so? They are about the size of my palm, and have no hooks or anything for hanging.

    Since I have Goodnight Moon memorized, I did recognize that style. But I had no idea Goodnight Goon existed. I don't know what those thingies are, either.

  2. I think they are cake toppers for 8" round bakery cakes. I would guess them earlier than the 1980's though, but, then again, I am from the 1980's and think that was just a few years ago. ha.

  3. I can assure you Shara, it WAS just a few years ago. At least last time I checked!

    Whatever those are, they, along with the costume and book, are adorable!!! Goodnight Goon will be my next search at the bookstore.

  4. I am also going to get the goon book - what a find! Too Many Pumpkins is my son's favorite Halloween story, but it is out at the library, so maybe we will have a Halloween book run to the bookstore. I love that boa-googly eye wreath, by the way. That is awesome!

  6. Could they possibly be for decorating cakes...? And, I see now that someone else commented with the same suggestion... Now I'm curious.

    I love the clown costume. I picked one up almost exactly like it this summer, garage sailing. (And, why doen't that surprise me in the least.)
