A very late spooky Monday post

My spooky Monday or was it Tuesday. No it is Wednesday. This spooky post comes to you with help from the host  of spooky Mondays Wendy's Adventures in Wonderland because she sent me a surprise parcel today.

For no other reason than to say thank you for taking part in her spooky Mondays... Well Wendy you are the best and now with out further adieu.....    In the parcel was a cute Halloween hanger , a pretty Halloween tag which was wrapped in my favorite thing to get, old lace.   I was so inspired I made a banner to go with the hanger Wendy had sent and then some tags to go on the light fitting..

Well did I make it in time?


The number that came up from the true random number generator is number 6

Fortune Telling at Mines View Park Hotel

I was one of the privileged bloggers who got to visit Mines View Park Hotel in Baguio last Sept. 23-24. One activity in the itinerary that I was really excited about was Fortune Telling. I really imagined a fat lady a la Madam Auring conducting a class to newbies and Wiccan practitioners like myself, with all her magical paraphernalia and stuff. Unfortunately, that wasn't what happened. I guess

Pretty Wicked charms

Inspired to make more spooky and wicked charms, it the season to scare and be scared so there are two  wonderful evil  charms .. the images are from ARTCHIX All hallows eve.

and I 'm linking today with FRENCH CUPBOARD pop over and see all the rest of the Autumn art.

Guidelines for this swap.
Each person will create 12 ATC  in the theme of the twelve days of Christmas. I will email which number is yours.

The ATC must be 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches (regulation ATC size)

Once the ATC arrive here due date 1st November I will sort them into the 12 days and mail them back to you with a little surprise, (Santa won't let me sent them without some Christmas magic) 

Please include $ 5.00. 
$7.00 for overseas to cover mailing. Thank you

Hugs Wendy

I had a question in comments and to to explain my thinking
you can make 12 ATC all the same or 12 ATC different but in the same theme. So if you get, say day 3  three french hens you can make each ATC different as long as there is three french hens somewhere on those cards....hope that helps to explain... if you have any more question please feel free to email me or leave a comment   hugs Wendy


From ghoulies and ghosties and long leggedy beasties and things that go bump in the night....

Did you think I had left you? sorry Mr. Husband was back from  a business trip and then rushing out the door again so I needed to wash , dry and iron  as quickly as possible ... that's love for you because you all know how much I HATE ironing.... but I have been in the studio today and made some very cute treat boxes for the Halloween party... the pumpkins are made from clay, the kind you bake in the oven. It was white so I had to paint them orange and some I left  white with a touch of pale green paint to look like the ghost pumpkins.... I think I like them better than the orange ones....

I can't wait to fill them with corn candy..... I love corn candy...OH yes it's spooky Monday so I'm linking up ...pop over and see all the other spooky posts today at

spooky door hanger

It's Monday again! it's spooky how quickly time flies when you are having fun....I am linking up again with Wendy at SpOoKy MoNdAy.

I have a shadow box I wanted to share with you all... this box has been lerking in my studio for a whole year... It came with nuts in.. and you know I took one look at it and knew I could do something with it ... BUT what.... the question laid unanswered until I saw this image....

 and I knew. A spooky Halloween Shadow box to put in my hallway.
The photo of the three girls just added to the spookyness, the pumpkins are handmade with oven dryed clay.

All change....

But don't worry! the cute faeries will be back after Halloween . I did tell you I like , sorry wrong word LOVE Halloween and so my blog is going dark, and halloweeny for a while. If this is you first time visiting , don't worry, my blog is normally cute with faeries, mushroom and magic. Have a great weekend and I 'll see you soon.

MInd reading and a cigal box full of Goodies

I think there is someone following me or at least reading my mind.....NO!  I'm not going crazy ! sorry guys all ready there but only the other day I was thinking as I read down the blog feed.
That I would love one of those china doll heads, I think they are called  frozen Charlotte   but I was thinking to myself, if I could find some , okay one I could do so much with it .
Also while in England last year I saw feathered angel wings and while I'm still kicking myself for not buying them... So the reason for my weird statement earlier..... today a box arrived in the mail and inside a swap from Sarah at My so called junky life.

We are swap partners for "The back to school cigar box swap" and  either Sarah has been following me about for years  or she's my long lost twin sister or she is a mind reader because in the beautiful , no breathtaking cigar box....

 was feathered angels wings but you won't believe this a frozen Charlotte...

I know what are the chances of that..... a million to one  but there they are along with a cigar box decorated up the nines and full of beautiful goodies.... I going to shut up now so you can admire the photos. BUT wait before you start looking .....maybe you should sit down and make a paper fan to fan yourself because Boy, oh boy! I have been spoilt.

Do you need to stop? Breathe, I know how you feel. Light headed, shocked but trust me there's much,much more.

I can't begin to thank Sarah for her wonderful gift. Please pop over to see her.
