Halloween Thrifting

As Halloween approaches, I certainly don't need more decorations, however there were a few items I could not pass by. Very unique, some possibly one of a kind. Above is a heavy iron black cat. I think it could be used as a door stop. It has scary yellow eyes. Found at a local occasional sale.
This appears to be a shelf, and made out of chalkware. It is quite heavy. It reminds me of the type of architecture seen in Paris.
The face is some type of devil/angel or green man. If anyone has an idea of what it might be, please let me know! Found at a thrift store.
Another possible architectural piece, this also is some type of green man. This is VERY heavy, stone or concrete. I think it is quite old, and is has been attached to a newer piece of wood.
Some sheet music. Cat theme again. It will sit will other sheet music.
Halloween themed, of course. All found over the years at thrift and antique stores.
And last, is this child's spoon with a witch in a basket and a spiderweb. I've never seen anything like it, and it doesn't have any identifying marks on it. But it's cute! Found at an antique store.

Linking up to Cottage Charm and Family Inspiration's Junkin' Monday!
