Yeah! I'm glad it got to you safe! I think that guy is a white pumpkin skull ghoul fancy lad.  Cheesy My husband said he was a pumpkin, I said he was a ghoul.  Cheesy The wreath looks great on your door. He looks great with your other hoops.

The wreath was made from a pool noodle.  Cheesy

Somehow I missed a whole page of posts!  Not sure how that happened, but anyway.  I pumpkin mummy is great and oh so creepy indeed.  I really, really love the little pumpkin pincushion and Halloween pins, especially the little witch hat pin.  I'm not sure why, but that is my favorite.  The vintage style ornaments are super cute and the boo banner is awesome. I also, really like the halloween cross stitch.  The moon's face is great. Love it!

kittykill, I'm glad you liked you Creature amigurumi and chocolate pops!  I'm super jealous of your monster collection!

Love the lace on the wreath, what a pretty idea. Also love the little hoopla, he reminds me of the Hatbox Ghost from Haunted Mansion(a favorite topic of mine-Google it, it's an odd story).

SonjaBoo might have seen into my brain, she made things that I've only ever dreamed of having. Right down to sparkly ribbon! Here are the amazing items that sure enough, my husband started photographing long before I got home from work.

First, a trick or treat 3-D sign, with two headed kittens. Yes, I said TWO-HEADED KITTENS. They are adorable, and one even looks guilty of...something. You know, like they do. It's actually quite large and oval. Not sure why it looks round on here.




She sent me candy(much of which is eaten already), two tiny pendants, one of a skull(which I will wear on Halloween to work), and one a creepy doll(all dolls are creepy, IMO). If that wasn't enough, she sent a large handpainted Halloween Owl. I love him so much I am going to have him out all year. She also sent a whole batch of ATCS, including a 3 piece set that says Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet...etc. etc. But the giant EYEBALL guy one is wonderful! It's a recurring nightmare of mine, LOVE it. And last, but certainly not least, a rockin skeleton with a baby coffin, which he has been booted from because she put an unreasonably generous amount of vintage buttons in it. And when I say they are good ones, I mean, "going in the permanent collection". Really, all this for me. I am already planning to send her a thank you gift for all this. I actually had a tiny crying moment, I was so happy.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

I want that pumpkin mummy! Have I mentioned that already? I don't know, but he's great. So are the chenille stem critters; I love the vintage-y goodness of them and that is exactly what I think of when I hear "vintage Halloween". The moon and owl cross-stitch is awesome! Beautiful work. SonjaBoo, I think I have to come to your house and steal your gumball machine, spiders and all. And I had no idea what a white pumpkin skull ghoul fancy lad was, but now that I do, I need one of those too. Oh, and how I adore the handpainted owl! Wow. What a remarkable group of awesome this group is.

Tracking # says the PO tried to deliver my package to my partner today.  Instead, they left her a notice.  I hope she picks it up soon.  This makes me nervous.  I'm dying to post pics of what I made elsewhere.  I'm really proud of what I made.  Smiley
