Poe revisited and a goodie for me

Laura was in my Poe altered art swap but didn't receive a package because it got lost in the mail.
We kept waiting for it to show up but it never did so I made up a package for her myself. The story she picked was The Black Cat...a really creepy tale!


Here is the outside of the box

and the inside...see Pluto's missing eye in the corner? Grisly!

I also made her a few things that relate to the story....a black cat book thong, a recipe that was popular with E.A. Poe, an eyeball ornament, a Black Cat chocolate bar, and some bath salts that surely would have helped de-stress the situation better than booze...
I made her a little Pluto, along with a noose! If you want to make your own black cat, I got the pattern from Gin's blog.

and look what I got in the mail!

Melinda knows I have a Halloween tree and made me this awesome tag ornament for it. Sorry for the glare but you can still tell how gorgeous it is!

Thank you Melinda!

Oh my! That's a really creepy, scary and AWESOME Poe package you created! Glad I didn't see this before going to bed...I would have had nightmares of missing cats' eyes! :-) What a great job you did, Val!

It seems like more things are getting lost in the mail lately.

That is a spooky package you sent but perfect for Poe.
