An Edgar Spooktacular Mail Surprise!

When witches go riding,and black cats are seen,the moon laughs and whispers,‘tis near Halloween.-Spooky Unknown

I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself than be crowded on a velvet cushion. ~Henry David Thoreau

Double, double toil and trouble; fire burn and cauldron bubble.- - - Shakespeare "Macbeth"

This Magical adventure begins this past May, when I met Kimberlee Edgar at ZNE in Pleasanton, CA, at the vendor fair and I have to see, I was instantly drawn to her booth, filled with so many wonderful and vintage curiosities, like walking into an old apothecary and treasure shop from the late 1800s early 1900s, pure feast for the eyes. Well you know I couldn't leave w/o buying some goodies, waiting for the right project to use them in....It's at events, its online on blogs, forums, and groups that you truly meet extraordinary people and build fabulous friendships, sharing your likes and desires w/like minded people who inspire you to create a world of artful magic. Through these serendipity encounters, you find people who truly go out of their way to make you smile and shine through their blogging about your wares or latest events, email greetings, comments, swaps and gifts, that's right gifts, which is the biggest surprise of all, receiving un-expected treasures in the mail and that is just what Kimberlee has done, she surprised me w/ a huge box filled w/Spooktacular treasures in true Edgar and Edgar style, right down to the package labeling.
Opening up this box was like opening up a Pandora's Box of magic, in which I found the cutest seer-sucker black/white striped tissue paper which wrapped scrumptious candy treats, Edgar and Edgar labeled coins and a vintage doll w/handmade wares created from Kimberlee herself, she is beautiful and I absolutely adore her, and she is currently sitting on my desk sprinkling magic and joy. Isn't she adorable?

Thank You Kimberlee for making my Halloween Season that much more spectacular and magical.
Hugs! XO, Lisa!

Lisa dearest,
I remember you visited me once upon a time...then I found out that you are LISA from Altered Circus fame! I won your book from a blog giveaway and I have been enchanted and changed since as an artist! Thank you so much for visiting my blog...I dabble in theatre, writing, dancing, and altered art, but I am a full time teacher which does not allow me to total abandon in the arts. You have inspired many and I thank you for taking the time to see what I am up to. Bon apétit, bon weekend and have a magical week!! Anita

Hi Lisa! Thanks for stopping over at my blog. I was up in Lafayette yesterday and picked up some wonderful antiques. I'll probably post photos of them tomorrow when it stops raining! I can't wait for the Tinsel workshop. I stopped in the cafe that place!

Lisa we really did just miss each other! Most of my finds were at the antique shop in Old Lafayette (my new favorite place) and at a little place across the street from the cafe. I might head back up tomorrow b/c I regret not picking up a certain ridiculous looking hat covered in velvet buds and rhinestones. Maybe I'll wear that to the Tinsel workshop!
