Yes, I've been doing some Halloween shopping. .or I should say some "more" Halloween shopping. Each year I tell myself that I have enough, and then the fever goes away, and my rational thinking returns just in the nick of time.
No need for me to ever do drugs. .just put me in a room full of artful Halloween pieces, and my eyes dilate, my pulse quickens, and I'll suck the oxygen right out of the room within seconds! I then do manage to calm down, and savor my tour, soaking in the atmosphere and thrilling in the detailed cleverness of each creation. It is often so hard to decide what to buy, I have to make several return trips. .what a challenge. Sigh. (And I thank the stars that my Birthday falls conveniently between the time that Halloween art bursts into bloom, and Halloween. .they make such lovely birthday gifts!)
So yes, I do have several new reproduction pieces to share, but first, I have to share this one that came by mail today. . .
Now, even though you knew it was coming, and you paid for it yourself, when you opened the box, and saw this, wouldn't you think that it was a very special surprise gift? That is how I felt when I opened the carton from Mandy! (Fiddlestix Studios)
When you open a package and find something so beautifully, and carefully packaged, it makes you feel very, very special, and that is a gift in itself. Thank you, Mandy!!
I think that he was meant to come and live here, because every time I pass by, he makes me smile, and that is another gift.
Thank you SO much for making him Mandy! I'm going to treasure him for many, many years to come!
Wishing everyone as delightful an evening, as my day has been!
What's up with that Candle?
