More Halloween Magic In The Mail!!

(Or is that Woo "Hoot"???)
In any event, my mailbox has, once again, been a very special place! First off....

This wonderfully fun "witchy pumpkin gal" comes from The Vintage Polka Dot, a magical place where whimsy and grunge come to dance and play.  Brenda, the very fine and sweet proprietress of The Vintage Polka Dot, recently had a giveaway, and I was the lucky winner!! :o)

Isn't she the sweetest?? Brenda crafts the most beautiful dolls and folk art and has a great line of patterns as well.  You can find more of Brenda's creations on her Website.  Brenda also has another blog, Sankers Country House,  that contains updates on Brenda's booth at Spring Hill Antiques and decorating ideas and trends that strike her fancy. And, last but not least, you can find Brenda's work on Handmade Art Fair.

Thank you so very much Brenda! This gal just tickles my Halloween fancy! 


I was also one of several winners in the recent giveaway at Primitive Folk Art Talk & Tea Ebay Group ("PFATT").


I was fortunate enough to win this whimsically wonderful little jack o' lantern ornie from Diane at Tallowberry Primitives.
I absolutely LOVE him!!

Thank you so much Diane (and PFATT)!! You know how much I love your work, so this is a special treat!!
Hope everyone has a week filled with blessings and Halloween magic....Off to decorate some more.....
