Monday Morning Mosaic

Halloween is only a little over a month away and shopping for Halloween decorations is in full swing!

As my favorite part of the year and my absolutely favorite holiday of the year, I wanted to share with you some of the terrific Halloween decor I've found on the handmade market place this year.

Here's a few shops you won't want to miss out on if you're shopping for some fresh and fun Halloween decor for your personal space!


Lotus Asylum - Creepy Handcrafted Asylum Art Dolls

If you're looking for some creepy decor with a little bit of fun, this is a shop you won't want to pass up stopping by for a look. Filled with unique one-of-a-kind art dolls that have a gothic flair and border just on the side of scary, these Asylum Dolls are not just unique but something could very well set any Halloween decor apart from the rest!

Primitive decor is the mainstay of the season year after year and this year is no different! In ThatSallie you'll find a wide variety of primitive art dolls and decorations for your personal space at home, the office or anywhere else that needs a touch of the season. The items in this shop range from harvest favorites to Halloween fun!

Who by Fire from Trollhättan, Sweden

Sculptures of strange dolls and curious creatures inspired by the darkness and melancholy in life that have been created from clay, super-sculpey and steel wire fill this shop and are perfect for the season with their spooky, Gothic feel. Each piece in this shop is one-of-a-kind and handmade and has its own personality perfect for Halloween or Goth gifts.


BrooklynLoveDesigns - Handmade Wallets, Bags and Pincushions

I fell in love with the little pumpkin pincushions in this shop and I'm so happy to be featuring them here! BrooklynLoveDesigns, of course, also sells a wide variety of handmade wallets, card holders and bags with beautiful quality workmanship, but the pumpkins are perfectly adorable as well as both practical and decorative at the same time!


The handmade marketplace and the talented artisans you'll find there are a terrific alternative to commercial products and with the added bonus of personalized care and attention to quality that commercial products lack.

When shopping for home decor or any type of product, don't forget to browse through artisan works and see what you can find, you'll be surprised at just how much creativity, originality and quality is out there to find!
