Friday Finds, Nightmare Style: Jack Skellington

Nightmare Before ChristmasLast year, my Pumpkin King gifted me with a shiny new The Nightmare Before Christmas Collector's Edition DVD. I watch the movie all year long, not just around Halloween, so my VHS version was starting to moan when rewinding. I happily laid it with the rest of my collection.

Over the years, I've acquired several official Nightmare treasures, including Jack and Sally Wind Up Toys, a Boogie's Boys Pen Holder, Shock Headknocker, two identical Sally Fleece Blankets (I couldn't bear to return either when I received both as gifts) Rag Doll Perfume, even an Oogie Boogie Lava Lamp.

My shrine to Halloween Town is also sprinkled with one of a kind items. A talented glass etcher sent me a Jack and Sally cookie jar from a craft swap on Craftster. Friend and fellow artist E Krumm cut out an awesome Jack silhouette from white foam core and framed it on black as a house warming gift.

My eyes are always peeled like grapes for more handmade treats! Luckily, Jack Skellington is a popular man on Etsy to find. Who can resist someone so tall, dead and handsome?
