Okay, y'all.. prepare to be awed!  My partner, wdicwg, sent a package full of wicked good Halloween items.  ("Wicked good" is a term used in Maine, where DH is from.)  They are bragalicious!
Here are a couple photos of the loot - I couldn't get it all in one shot.


 

On the left at the top is an exquisite wall hanging of a witch with a crescent moon, pumpkins, RIP tombstone, and a screaming tree.  There is an amazing amount of detail on this, including a soft two-tone trim on the edge and striped painting on the sides.  She even signed the back and named this work "A Witchy Halloween."  I love the colors she chose.  Unfortunately you can't see the intricate design of her gown.  My camera doesn't do it justice.



Below that, you can see the cute card and decorated envelope.  She used 3 dimensional purple letters spelling out my name.  She made an oval hoopla with an intricately embroidered kettle on a fire, with steam rising in swirls, and edged with a dark reddish purple.  The hoop is silver with nail nobs, giving it a medieval touch.  It is titled "Bubble Bubble" and signed on the back.  (MacBeth's witches are jealous that their speech is referenced so beautifully)  In the pictures, the fabric looks black but it is a gorgeous deep purple.  This is my very first hoopla and I am honored to have this made for me.



Still on the left side, beneath the hoopla are KitKats wrapped with a sparkly spider web ornament.  It has a magnet on the back and is currently on my computer frame.  Check out the spider on that web!  I'm thinking of making this into a brooch.  Too fun to leave at home.


Uhmmm don't look for a closeup of those Kitkats.  They mysteriously disappeared.
I blame the ghosts.


The loot photo on the right up there .....
I love scarecrows as much as I love witches and KitKats.  wdicwg sent a darling scarecrow door chime with a bell dangling down the center.  Soon it will have a place of honor on our door wreath for everyone to admire.  
In the middle is another scarecrow - a bookmarker in a distressed wood style with a crow on the brim of his hat.  Such a cheerful place keeper for my books!

At the bottom of the photo is a package of window clings.  Have you ever seen such cute ghosts?!  They are certainly ready for the festivities with their treats and outfits.  You can't help but feel happy when you look at these.

But don't let their smiles fool you.  They ate the KitKats.

I have been royally spoiled.  Thank you very much for everything, wdicwg!  Each item is fantastic and I appreciate all you have done.  I hope you like your goodies even half as much as I do mine.  It has been great "meeting" you! Smiley

I'm glad you like it all JS! 

I also received my package from JS but I apologize that it has taken me a few days to get pictures. I also feel spoiled by all the things JS sent!


First up is the awesome book box, the design reminds me of skulls trying to escape from stone.  The texture is also lovely.


And the inside of the box, lined with a pretty flower pattern.


Up next on the left is the Halloween Mini scrap book filled with lots of great things including Halloween quotes, poems, drawings, pictures, and recipes.  On the bottom right is a lip balm holder made of a cute spooky fabric and candy corn lip balm.  On the top right is is the home made envelope the lip balm holder came in with a great art print on it.





A few of my favorite pages inside the mini scrap book for your viewing pleasure.



Up next is a beautiful print of "Dreams" by Luis Royo.  I love the unique fabric hanger JS added to the top.


Up next are some adorable Halloween stickers and a solar powered, dancing, sugar skull figure.


And finally a variety of treats (caramel tea, carob skulls, pumpkin spiced peanuts, and gummy zombies).   

I love my package!   Thank you so much JS!

First, I must apologize to Ludi! I received my package about a week ago and I was unable to upload pics until today! Life...and work...it hardly works in my favor!

The quintessential Ludi embroidery, with the utmost detail. I can't even fathom how you do this Ludi!! You're amazing!


My amazing bat Ninni...he is so PERFECTLY stitched!!


The cutest bat postcard (which I just now noticed I photographed upside down lol) and bag...I ALWAYS need bags and I will love carrying this one everywhere!


And treats!! This should prove how busy I am because these are my favorites and they are still in this bag!!

Thank you so much Ludi for my bat box!! I love everything!!

I'm so glad!   Cheesy  I'm a big bat fan (and long-time member of Bat Conservation International) so this theme was super fun for me.

Fabulous goodies!  The embroidered bat looks too real to be wall art and the ninni is cute.  The batcon tote adds a nice heartfelt touch.

That embroidered bat is so delightful! And I totally agree with the skulls trying to escape from stone look. Very haunted. Cheesy
