Organizing with a Halloween Twist

wood box with witch

With Halloween coming so soon, I thought I'd take you on a tour of some Halloween-themed containers and other organizing-related items. I'm enchanted by the wood boxes by stregheria, from Bergamo, Italy - and available on Etsy. But each one is one-of-a-kind, so this one might not be available for long.

keepsake box with pumpkin patch, scarecrow, crows

Over on CafePress, you can get this keepsake box.

And this keepsake box doesn't have a Halloween theme, but rather the Day of the Dead. Update on Oct. 13, 2009: Unfortunately, Tascha doesn't seem to be selling boxes any more, either on CafePress or Etsy.

Halloween themed pail

Patricia's Pots sells this Halloween-themed pail. Update on Sept. 26, 2012: This website is no longer selling painted pots.

pumpkin shaped paper mache candy container

This pumpkin paper mache candy container is an unusual item that appealed to me. Update on Oct. 13, 2009: This isn't available any more.

For something very different, how about these glow-in-the-dark monster magnets from NuitBlanche, on Etsy? Artist Caroline Gaedechens says you can also buy them from druck dealer in Hamburg. [via Rare Bird Finds] Update on Oct. 13, 2009: Sadly, these are no longer available on Etsy; I have no way of knowing if druck dealer still has them.

And finally, here's the only expensive item in the bunch - the Limoges Halloween boxes, this one being just one of many.

I like the keepsake box with the scarecrow scene on it. It has sort of a haunting look to it.

Hi Jerri - Glad to know you liked that one! It sure does seem to go along with your front porch - although those scarecrows look friendly, not haunted.

Sorry I didn't come across your site sooner. Oct. 31st, Halloween ! is my birthday. I never thought about Halloween limoges.
