Yippee, it’s Halloween at my house! Can you believe my partner got all of this finished and mailed all the way across the country SO fast? It’s amazing!



I wanted to show the details on these candy containers/retro looking cutouts. They’re not just printed pictures - they’re assembled from all the little pieces in the perfect vintage colors. (I think this guy might have been glued to something - but I can’t see what, as everything else looks perfect the way it is!

So cute, and it would have taken me 6 months to do this, if I could have figured out the instructions. Love it!


And this doesn’t just look amazing, it lights up!! (Also, in case you can’t tell, it’s paper!)

Wow, I am just amazed by the whole thing. Love, love, love!

I’m totally lurking to see all the wonderfulness!!
@bethntim I totally want instructions on how to make that tree!

Got my swap package today from @momiemae and I love it! I was hoping for spooky decor for my new apartment and I love the detailed ink-like artwork! I can’t decide if I want to have them hanging on the wall together or if should stand them up on a shelf with my candles and spooky stuff… Suggestions?

Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor! The most amazing package arrived from @KarenLouiseM and I am still in awe! I will not apologize for too many pics
First these precious vintage paper ephemera. The library card is my fave! (I think, I’ll let you know again after I look at them 712 more times)


Then this mask holder that also doubles as an eyeglass holder

Close up shot of the skull beads

THEN 3 magnets from my 3 favorite movies of all time (Halloween or not). Beetlejuice, A Nightmare Before Christmas, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. These guys are about 1 1/2 inches square. So much detail in a little space!

AND THEN
This was the main gift. She was worried it would be a little bumpy in transit but everything arrived in perfect order. It is the most amazing Halloween advent. The book has such great detail and personalization it is astonishing to look at. On the front there is a magnet attached because inside is 31 different boxes of Halloween treats! I can’t wait until October 1st so I can start my countdown! Each box is filled with something so I will have 31 treats to greet me. There’s lots of pics so enjoy! I took a pic of all the boxes laid out and a close up of some of my faves (oh, who are we kidding they’re all my favorite!)










And AS IF that wasn’t enough she said in her letter “I added something extra in case you don’t like the other”
UM EXCUSE ME, WHAT?!?
I can’t even
These statues are the coolest things I’ve ever seen, they might stay up year round. They’ve got a place in my heart






Thanks for looking I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!
Thanks KarenLouiseM!

Hi All~ I have received my swap goodies from @kittykill and can’t wait to share! I actually picked up the parcel from the post office over the weekend, but I was waiting until I got hers in the mail today (late, sorry babe!) before I opened it. If you’ve ever been lucky enough to get a box from Pam, you know it’s something to be savored.

Pam chose a fun mix of cute & prim styles for all the goodies she made for me and I love it!

Let’s look closer! Here is the sweet tea towel she hand embroidered for me, I adore the colors she chose!


And I love that little mug, Pam knows I have an obsession with mugs, and I’ll deffo be using this one all autumn!

Pam also wove this little pot holder which I’ll probably use as a perfect lil mug rug. She also made these adorable tea bag envelopes.


And a new wax scent bar in an appropriately spooky scent!

Then there’s this adorable pillow hand stitched with a pumpkin-man motif, look at his cute little kitty candy bucket!

Pam also created this rad Halloween kitchen journal, a splendid place to keep record of all my potions and tonics, mwuahahahaaaa! This journal is so neat, it has a lot of little hiding spots and pockets and is packed with all sorts of cool surprises. I wish I could add a video of it, it’s so cool. This picture doesn’t do it justice!

Thank you for this excellent swap package, Pam, and thank you for hosting this years Vintage Halloween Swap, these are always such fun!

HOLY CATS, what awesome packages! I’m sitting here on my sofa wishing I hadn’t had too much else to do so I could’ve played along. [shakes fist at sky] I hope that both @KarenLouiseM and @kittykill will post all their amazing creations in their own topics, too! (she said hintingly)
