ATC - The Punkin Dance

Vintage Halloween Bridge Tallies

I've been a collector of vintage Halloween Tallies for quite awhile. I think the graphics are great. This pair would date to the late 1920s or early 1930s. I found them about 10 years ago on Ebay.

Black and White Halloween Decorations

I thought I'd share my collection of Dee Foust French Bunnies. I think they have a definite "Halloween Masquerade" feel about them....

Here is my dining room table all decked out in black, white and silver. These mercury glass pumpkins were a real find. I'm really loving the black and white for Halloween...very Martha Stewart.

The most amazing ATC came rap rap rapping at my door today. My friend Laura Carson sent me this one of a kind ATC as a hostess gift for an Edgar Allan Poe swap I'm currently hosting. As you can see she has put so much thought and detail into this ATC that it feels like it could start working any minute. Thank you so much Laura, I adore it!
