 Trader Joe’s tempted me with a pot of teeny tiny mums which fit perfectly in a pretty tea cup I received in a swap some years ago here

I haven’t done any Halloween creating this season but am using a few things I had made or collected over the years…

Frida Wooden ATC(I played with Pixlr above using a photo of my wooden Frida Kahlo that I made in a Michael deMeng class a few years ago)…

 some really special surprises arrived in the mail recently…

Magpies Nest Surprise Halloween Mail

Marion in Germany sent me this great postcard and some super rubber stamps … a cool machine stitched card and envelope arrived from Elizabeth and Bleubeard in Kansas = all such FUN!

Mr Magpie made a convincing Bromhilda some years ago and I was Mother Nature with real leaves pinned to my dress…

  1. Hello Patty, so glad you joined this week. I love all these pictures and stories and happy mail!! How sweet those little mums are and your teacup and pumpkins are pretty too. Love the costumes and cute picture. What a wonderful little shop ready for fall, we don’t have any like that here.
    Thanks so much for sharing with us today. Enjoy your week!

  2. Hello Chère Patty, joli chrysanthème dans cette si jolie tasse de thé.
    Belle fête d’Halloween.

  3. It looks divinely spooky and quite lovely! Happy Halloween!

  4. Everything about this post is adorable. I love how you set the mum filled tea cup on that white pumpkin. THAT was clever! Bleubeard’s glad he’s not that black cat. He wouldn’t make a very good wall hanging.

    Sorry to read you had trouble with Blogger. I had trouble, too, just trying to check my comments. I thought it was my computer until I read your message.

    Glad you got the card. You got some really happy mail this week, that’s for sure. Marion’s postcard is adorable, and I LOVE that hand stamp. Note that no one sends me stamps, because they would likely languish in a drawer (grin).

    Happy T today as we celebrate Halloween and Bleubeard’s birthday yesterday.

  5. Your Halloween display is so pretty! Tea cups make the sweetest planters, and these miniature mums look adorable! Beautiful happy mail! Happy T Day & Happy Halloween!
