Throwback Thursday "Vintage Halloween"

Children trying to catch some apples during a Halloween party in the 1940's. These costumes look to me like they may have been homemade. My parents always made my costumes. My Mom was a great sewer, she could do anything, and made some really cool designs for me.
This was one of my favorites, a Princess. My Mom made the dress and my Dad made my crown and wand from cardboard and foil wrap. I am not a real fan of the holiday now as an adult, but my parents made it very fun as a child. They were always so proud of their work when it was completed, and so was I when I saw others with just plastic masks and plastic gowns as their costume. I was one lucky little girl! 

Would be thrilled if you gave me a follow here:
