Story box, ehag


I'm so excited! I've been invited to join ehag, eclectic Halloween artist group. Ever since I was small the sense of wonder, magic and fancy that comes alive during the Halloween season enchanted me. Although my childhood Halloweens were limited to rather sad store bought costumes (do you remember the masks that had the thin elastic bands held by staples? tie on costumes that only covered the front like a drafty hospital gown, but you see it didn't matter because the magic is in the heart) the very sight of the streets filled with other masked candy bandits was enough to send my little heart a flutter. 
To celebrate I'm listing this dear Story box I made around Halloween last year. It's available in my etsy shop

Wonderful box! There is a Halloween Museum where I am from. I went with some friends who love all the vintage stuff and it was so amazing. A woman and her hubby bought an old school blg. and live on one floor and the 2 other floorsare everything they have collected. Totally unbelieveable!
