Happy Halloween!

Some Halloween postcards with vintage images I sent out to the participants of the MMSA swap I recently hosted.


USPS issued their first Halloween stamps ever. I am surprised they haven't cashed in on this very big tradition before - I'll be interested to see if they continue with Halloween issues in the future.

I used them on stamps for Jean's October exchange on homemade envelopes 831 and 832, with a bonus envelope 830 to Eric.

And using some Halloween-themed bottle labels Colleen sent me as an MMSA bonus, I finished the rest of the swap with these:

Halloween from Eva

A great spider, and an unusual white on black letter from Eva.

And a second spidery envelope containing this fab letter written on bat paper.

Halloween to Eva

A bonus Halloween post this morning.

Halloween and Spook Stories

I love this bonus card from Dorothea.


From Eva. I think dragonflies are a highly underrated insect, so it was nice to see them on this card and envelope. The stamps with the migration theme are fascinating.

Halloween in a paper bag

Hester and I have been exchanging Halloween mail for the past few years. Here's the paper bag envelope...

...and here's the cool card inside.

The mail unicorns

Love these guys from Michelle

A Halloween Envelope's (Mis)adventure

Eric sent his MMSA postcards in this spooky envelope.

It was somewhat delayed - if you look closely at the big yellow nixie sticker, it  says undeliverable, return to sender.

Fortunately it was sent to me, rather than back to Eric.

The selvage project

Patricia sent me one of her selvage project add and return cards.

I added even more selvage!
