When I found your blog I thought I had died and went to heaven with all your vintage Halloween. My hubby and I have collected vintage and new halloween for years and years. We love it. We also collect other seasonal "stuff". I could just look and look at your photos. Your creations are wonderful too. Thank you so much for brightening my day with your collections. The owls are unbeleivable.
Have a spooky day,

I found your blog through another(don't remember the name right now) and I love it. You have such a treasure chest of wonderful images. Thanks for the info about the paper doll place. I also wanted to ask you about whether or not it would be okay if I used some of your images for college. I do not want to steal them and I will not use them if you do not wish me too. Please email me or visit my blog with your answer. or i can only guess how long it has taken you to aquire such images or how many CD's you may have purchased. I have only recognised one of them from somewhere else so far. What ever you decide i love your blog and will be back to see it in the future. I think your Paper mache is amazing-I want to hear more about it!

Love your blog and fun creations! I've been an owl lover myself, for many years now. Your collection is wonderful!

Cade said...

First of all: WOAH!! This is an awesome blog :D

Secondly, when I was younger my mother had a few owls as well. It wasn't as extraordinary or large as your collection probably is though.

I'm guessing the ebay auction for the potato chip owl has ended. I hope it's yours now!

I also hope you don't mind~ I like looking through blog archives and I may leave a few comments sprinkled through as I go.
