I'm in Halloween Heaven!

Another Halloween swap complete, and what a swap in was! In my flickr group we celebrated our  second annual Halloween swap, spoiling each other with our spookiest confections. We each altered one large matchbox filling it with the smaller items and then included Halloween creations for out of the box. My partner, Susan, of Flutter Before You bestowed a wonderful array of Halloween treats upon me...
That wonderful winged witch with the pumpkin and broom is the top of a most amazing matchbox!
My treat bag included handmade tags, vintage buttons,
a domino pendant, Halloween ornies and other wickedly wonderful bits and baubles.

One of my new fav pieces of Halloween decor is Susan's altered bottle of Witch's Stew.
 
Knowing my love affair with crows, particularly those that wear hats, I was the lucky recipient of Mr. Crow.
I immediately knew how I wanted to display him. I recently picked up this wooden candlestick at a thrift shop (my big 79 cent purchase!). I wrapped a piece of vintage lace around it and stuck a Michael's craft pumpkin on top....a perfect perch for Mr. Crow!
 
Happy Halloween Hugs to Susan for being an awesome swap partner!
If you missed what I whipped up in my cauldron for her, you can see it HERE.

So many great Halloween stuff! What a wonderful swap. I love Halloween, even though it is not celebrated here in Germany so intense.
