Oooo, I'm so scared! Your snaps are just marvelous. You look so cute too in your costume! I must tell you, since I see you have a picture of Edgar Allen Poe on that mug! My pastor at our church is a descendant of Mr. Scary! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

What a fun web site! I think you would love my work. I have an Edgar Allan Poe candle holder...actually two of them, so I appreciate your taste. :) I am an artist as well and make lots of Halloweenish things. Here's a link to my Poe candle holder on Etsy. I'm already looking forward to Halloween!

Take care,
June
