Vintage Halloween Noisemaker Spotlight 

German clapper - sold at eBay for $56.00.

Woman's Day October 2014 Magazine

Woman's Day used to have a special Halloween issue but they haven't in a couple of years now. They do include a few Halloween ideas in this issue including some front porch decorating ideas - I like the green "ooze/slim" effect on the steps below and the squash turned into ghostly jack o' lanterns.
