What comes in, must go out

I did not steal this, I'll have you know. My neighbors still have their purple spider web, but now we have one too. Thanks to the neighbors. 

Turns out, the crafty neighbors down the street with a fun sense of style own The Christmas Attic, a  gorgeous boutique in Old Town crammed full of seasonal decorations and tchotkes. Of course. That's why their house always looks like it should be featured on the cover of House Beautiful. 

"I really, really, really want a spider web," Josephine said today as we schlepped past on our way from lunch. "I really, really, really do too," I told her, then laughed when I saw the man who owns the house sitting on the porch.

He peeked over the tip of his newspaper when he heard the back and forth - or maybe because we look like a traveling circus when we troop down the sidewalk. Either way, it was the perfect segue and I asked him where he got the spider web. 

"The Christmas Attic," he said, talking about his wife's store.

Then just like that, he picked up the cordless phone next to him, called his son at the store and got one set aside for us. 

Also, just like that, I spent half the money we made on the yard sale this weekend.

Dana, Happy to hear that you got your web and discovered the "Christmas Attic".
Halloween has always been my favorite holiday because of the decorations and dressing in costume.
Hope you will be recording these memories and backing them up.
