The impish rascal on the right plays in a soft blue evening sky with a big pale moon, shining gold stars and white fireworks above dark trees and a house, outlined with shining gold lines. This design includes nearly day-glo colors on the imp, with turquoise skin and brilliant orange cap and shoes. Is this a true Halloween design? We choose to put it in our Halloween collection, based on its greeting: Stay at home though the moon shines bright, for Elves are floating around in its light.
Below is another charming pumpkin head design, with the black cats feeling much more playful in this scene. The lettering is in gold and it says, The blackest cats that ever were seen wish you good luck this Halloween. Looks as though one pumpkin head has carved a pumpkin head for the cats. One cat is already sporting his costume, and another is about to be slipped into his feline pumpkin head. I don't know any cats that would tolerate this sort of hilarity, but this is a fantasy postcard after all.
We close with an example of an unusual fun series from Whitney that pairs the usual black cats and pumpkins with an unexpected group of dressed mice, all celebrating together like Halloween holiday pals.
Price Guide: Whitney Halloween postcards are rapidly increasing in price. We paid $18 and up for the ones shown in this post, but they have about doubled in price since then. You may still be able to get some bargains in the $20 - $30 range. On eBay, you can put in a Search for Whitney Halloween if you are interested in being alerted when new listings appear.
