HALLOWEEN NESTING DOLLS

Fifteen years ago, when I was living in Montana, I found this cute little cat in a vintage shop on a shelf with some other dusty, scary, not necessarily Halloween items.  I almost passed him by because although the cat was cute, I didn't really think I needed it.

But I visited it again before I left the shop and realized this little cat was hiding a secret!

 Let's break it down for a closer look.

 Each one is kind of a little art piece all by itself!
Together, they are just fun!
 Could you pass up such a fun find?

  12. That is so cute. Glad you took another look. I love things that hold a secret, or have some unexpected function. I get tickled at my daughter, Meg. From the time she was very, very little, she could never pass a closed box or basket without peeking inside, I took her thrifting with me all the time, and she just HAD to know what was in every small container. She is 28 now, and when we go to the thrift stores, she still peeks into every one. And she adores Halloween, she would love your little cat!
