Wow. I've had a few things come up and been unable to log on for a few days - can't believe how many amazing things have been posted.  GREAT packages all around!

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

Picture heavy alert! If you have dial up, don't even try.

I hope you all are ready for this, 'cause your eyes are gonna pop out. I know mine sure did!

I got this huge package from Karen today. The box has this vintage jack-o-lantern coaster on the front. I open it and what do I see?

This!



And that's not the best part, it lights up! Oh, how I wish I could have gotten a pic of that. I told Karen I like vampires and there's Dracula, right there on the tv. This is going to the office so everyone can see it and be jealous. I have a coworker who's as big a Halloween nut as me.

Then I find this!



As if the vintage witch isn't awesome enough, there's a jack-o-lantern on the top, also a vintage image, and inside is this!



I swear, the pics don't begin to do these things justice. This banner is going to work with me as well. The place really needs some dressing up and this is going to really add pizzaz!

Then, I find a little bag with these!



I tried everything to get a decent pic and it just didn't happen. One has a ghost, then there's a heart with orange and black sprinkles, one with tiny black-pupiled eyes, and a scary bat. So I can decorate me too!

Then, I get to the bottom of the box and what to my wondering eye should appear...?



A Witch's Pantry that includes a bottle of Love Potion #9. I can sure use that.  Grin Plus bat wings, lizard legs, corrosive... stuff (that's for the BAM!) and all sorts of other creepy ingredients. I'm putting this in my kitchen to replace my never used spice rack. lol

Karen, you are amazing. This is the best package yet, not to brag or anything. But come to think of it, heck yes I'm bragging. I'm floored, I'm amazed, and I'm so very grateful. You rock, Karen. Seriously!

Here's what diablita sent to me!  I took action shots.  She wrapped everything in orange tissue paper with fun ribbon, it was really pretty when I opened the box.  She's really great at sewing and sent me some awesome stuff!

A table runner.  I had actually planned it to go on the coffee table so I had given her measurements for that, but in the evening I was away and my parents set everything around the apt (they visited me for a week).  I think it looks lovely on the table.  The fabric is my favorite and I had actually bought a large amount of it a couple years earlier and I've been planning on making a small wallhanging out of it.  Now it will all match!  Notice the little tassles--eee!!!


Check out this little candy tube!  It has candy-corn on the inside of it, but I really can't open it, it's so pretty. 


This was the biggest wrapped item and was so squishably soft I wasn't sure what it was, but when I opened the tissue, there was this big pumpkin!  It really is quite big and stuffed full of stuffing.  The fabric is all patterned, which is neat, and I like it that she used the lime green around the eyes.  It really makes them stand out.  The little posey on the hat band has a little button on it with an even smaller pumpkin on that!


Lastly, here is an amazing pillow.  The black patterned fabric is the same as the hat for the pumpkin and it has these lush tassles running all around it (I like tassles).  The center is a transfer of a vintage Halloween postcard.  I love the rhymes on the old postcards.  She sewed a sequined braid around the image.  It's really very pretty and though it's seen on the couch here, it's actually sitting on the back (top?) of the couch leaning against the wall because I don't want anyone using it Grin



Diablita, thank you for the excellent Halloween-y decorations.   Kiss Kiss Kiss Your sewing skills are awesome!  I hope you will enjoy what I sent to you!
