Fall Into Karusa

Exactly one week until October 1st which means....
Last month I started selling my crafts at a handmade and vintage shop here in Munich called, Karusa.  You can read about that exciting experience here.  If you stopped by, you saw that my little space was decorated with vintage hankies, cupcake holders, and old jam jars.  

Well that has all changed now.  It is out with the old and in with the FALL!  My little tiny space in Munich has had a complete seasonal change.  It is all about the jack-o-lantern and celebrating Halloween!

See the outside garland with the hanging clips?  That is made of material and ribbon left over from my Halloween Ribbon Wreath.  

Halloween has just started becoming a "thing" in Germany.  The kids these days see American movies with Halloween and it is slowly making it's way over the Atlantic.  Last year Husband was shocked when two kids rang our doorbell.  Unfortunately, we weren't prepared with gobs of candy...for shame!  

It will be interesting to see how the Halloween crafts do on the shelf in Karusa.  Compared to the candy filled, rubber masks, and polyester costume filled six Wal-Mart aisles, our local grocery store here in Munich only has a tiny end-cap of skeletons and witch hats.

This owl was soooo easy to make.  I think he is adorable and can not wait to make one for my own house!  

This is the new glitzy candy corn inspired yarn wreath also available in the Karusa shop.  

Speaking of candy corn...I saw Starburst has come out with fruit flavored candy corn.  I love Starbursts and fruit flavored candy but I don't know how I feel about messing with the original candy corn flavor.  Some things are just meant to be left alone.  Does anyone know if I can find candy corn here in Munich?

Don't forget tomorrow is the last day to enter our Oktoberfest GIVEAWAY! Become a follower of Mainly Maren for a chance to win this set of four unique Oktoberfest girl magnets from the Etsy shop CUTandTEAR.  The winner of the giveaway will be announced tomorrow evening! 

Happy One Week to October,

  1. I remember the ribbon wreath from your house in Plano! I thought at the time that I should get you to teach me how to do that! I love the candy corn wreath too. Imagine that you are on the cutting edge of Halloween celebration in Bavaria!


Thank you so much for your comments! I enjoy reading each and every one.
