so many cool things posted  Shocked
the little witch - the wow cat and the monster from the black lagoon - too cool!

got my package from petskin - it's the mummy with a pumpkin face - he rather enjoyed the windy weather with rain moving in, making my hanging plant he was sitting in swing - see that big ol grin!
He was rather grumpy when I made him come inside so he wouldn't get wet.  Grin

The mummy with a pumpkin face is both cute and creepy. I like his socks or boots.

The last package is very vintage. My favorite is the pumpkin pincushion with Halloween pins, it is so lovely.

I love the creature from the black lagoon. He's so detailed with the fins on his arms and I love his claws.  He fits right in with your great collection. What are those little heads down by the creature's feet by the way?  Not the walkers the other ones.

I also love the pumpkin mummy.  He's creepy handsome and I really dig those socks. That package from LisasTeaTime is awesome.  The box is my favorite but everything is wonderful.

Mel, you did a great job with the mixed media, no worries about that.  Cross-stitch is something that I haven't tried, so I extra-admire it.

Thanks Irid3sc3nt. It's always kind of nerve wracking to try something new.

Wow, the cool gallery is filling up fast. I have something very, very special to share soon, but first the admiration.

The Witch's Ball is so cool. I've never seen anything like that before and the story behind it is great too. The beaded snake is so pretty too.

The little witch amigurumi is so cute. She's really enjoying her new home. That's some great work there with all the details on her clothes and her hair.

The bat mobile, lol!

The vintage look on the felt cat hoopla is fantastic. I love the colors and I thought of "WOW" when I saw it too. Sounds like it was a happy accident, but it really makes the image pop.

OMG! The Creature from the Black Lagoon! He has a good home with all his monster pals. Great stitching on that.

Wow, that vintage package with the treat bag and ornaments and spool cat and bunting is so cool! I love the vintage images.

Ooh, that mummy is actually kind of creepy. If he wanted to stay outside I'm not sure I'd have had the courage to take him in. I love the grin on his face. It's just the right mix of cute and unnerving.

The pumpkin mummy is so creepy cool! Very old school!

Lisa-LOVE the package you sent! The cat is over the top.

I totally forgot to post the wonderful yummy bride and Franky La Chapa sent me too.


The post office says my package to La Chapa was delivered! So nervous!

I received my package from pennydreadfull today and she couldn't have made me anything I would love more! I have always wanted a really nice hoopla and she came through big time! Take a look at this:



Just look at that vintage look of the moon and owl. I can't keep my hands off it. I haven't even hung it up yet because I keep picking it up to admire the stitches and moon gaze at that wonderful face. The owl seems to share my admiration.  Smiley

As if that's not awesome enough, she made me this Halloween bunting. The fabric looks so vintage, and the orange and black plaid in the middle reminds me of a shirt I had as a kid. It makes me nostalgic.



Then there's this cool plaque with a Halloween saying. It looks like the sayings on those old vintage cards.



Pennydreadfull is the most amazing craftster. I'm so lucky to have gotten her in this swap. It's like she can read my mind. Thanks for everything pennydreadfull. You're one in a million.
