“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Halloween Tin swap

Wendy from Bliss Angels hosted an altered tin swap and she paired me with Karen from Karen's Monday Musings who lives about 15 minutes from me!! We met for lunch and talked and talked and talked!
She gave me my tin in a cute little drawstring pouch she made herself, she even included some delicious candy she bought from her recent trip to Germany, but, I didn't get a chance to photograph it:)

Inside was this gorgeous ATC she created..

This is the tin...

the inside...

and this is the one I made for her...
I decided to make it a shrine so I removed the lid completely.

Thanks to Wendy for hosting such great swaps!
I also wanted to add that I have a winner for the Practical Magic painting used the random number generator and it chose #24 Victoria, from Brushstrokes
