Oh, wow!  I really like the creeping, spindly spider on the shrine.

Is the witch book another reconstructed child's block book?

I have receiveth! Actually, I got my package from Jonnamarco last Thursday, but my internet was out until last night. I was so blown away by how gorgeous everything was and how tailored it was to my likes and dislikes. Like I told Jonnamarco, I showed everything to my best friend and she said "Wow, it's almost as if she KNOWS you!" So strange. Here are the goods!

This is what everything looked like once unwrapped. A beautiful orange and black rainbow:



The first close-up. A mini paganistic/samhain diorama with the vintage devil-men and witch. I love all the detail (the hay and little pumpkin on top and the teeny little tombstones). I'm not sure what the "ground" is made of, but it's awesome.



Next up:



An adorable pumpkin statue. I love this little guy so much, and especially all the polka-dots. Don't know if you can tell from the picture, but his witch hat is glittery.

And finally, the big kahuna. I was oohing and ahhing ALL afternoon after I opened this Halloween shrine. Here's a picture of the outside (closed book):


 
Notice the creepy skeleton hand on top. So awesome.

And for the spine of the "book":



And finally, for the inside...



I love everything that Jonnamarco sent me, but this was just the icing on the cake. Check out that owl/moon picture (with a real mini wooden frame!), the teeny tiny bookshelf with strategically placed books, the mini black cat, and the witch/crystal ball. I think the crystal ball might be a marble?

There was also a paper skull banner included in my package, along with some rad Halloween stickers (you can see these in the main picture).

I'm thrilled with my package, Jonnamarco and can't thank you enough for your hard work! I hope you like your gifts, too!

P.S. If any of you like listening to podcasts while you craft, I've got the perfect one to suggest. It's vintage and spooky, just like this swap! You can download it free through iTunes (or you can get it at relicradio.com); it's called The Horror (Old Time Radio). Vincent Price narrates one of the episodes, and they're so creepy. Very Twilight Zone-ish. The intro music is the best part.

I'm so glad you liked everything. The soil on the smaller shrine is sand mixed with paint mixed with glue.

Oh my - I didn't even realize there was a gallery.  So glad I found it - it's already so great!

Love Danniquee's shrine and pumpkin both!  I didn't realize the shrine was going to open - and thought it was pretty fabulous just from the front!

I guess that's the way it's gonna go - cuz I love racky's book and pumpkin too.  They just scream vintage Halloween.  Can't pick which one I like best.

And from Jonnamarco another marvelous package.  Another pumpkin that I would love to have at my house  Grin (Clever shrine too - love the way satan is coming up from the ground.)

This is the only swap I've repeated 3 times - I just love the stuff you gals come up with!

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).

Jonnamarco, is the pumpkin statue made from a real miniature painted pumpkin or a really realistic fake pumpkin?
