  1. Oh, I'd love to win one of these these whimsies as my birthday is on the 20th! That'd be a delightful gift, lol! I think my fave Halloween delight is the collection of witches I've started...I adore what is being displayed today. Thanks so much for the chance to be in the give-away!
    Blessings to All the Artists and to Ehag for hosting the give-away!

  2. My favorite Halloween treasure is an old plastic pumpkin treat container from the 1950s.
    It may be as old as I am, I'm not certain, but it's been around for as long as I can remember.

  14. I would so love to win one of these little beauties!! My favorite Halloween treasure is the handsewn bunny ears my mom made for my first son when he was 2. Now that my son is much grown up (and makes himself really cool zombie suits for Halloween costumes), the ears/headpiece needs to adorn a pumpkin/jack-o-lantern at our house each Halloween... Thanks for all the wonderful EHAG art that are becoming new treasures :)

  18. Wow. LOVE the prizes! My favorite treat as a child was when we would trick-or-treat at the pizza shop around the corner. They never had candy so they always gave us a can of soda pop out of the cooler. It was a really big deal since we hardly ever drank it at home!

  19. EHAG artists are all so wickedly amazing! I would freak out if I were to win one of these creepy prizes! Halloween is my all time favorite holiday. You just can't beat all the cool decorations, and yes at my house, you will always find a bit of Halloween every day of the year. My favorite Halloween treasures are my 7 monster votive candle holders. They are covered with glitter and give off such an eerie glow when lit in my living room window. Thank you for having such a spooktacular giveaway!

  20. Thanks for posting this give-a-way. My favorite Halloween treat is a memory and a photo taken of my brothers and I in the 50s as we were preparing to go out trick or treating. We all have masks on and are poking our heads through a shelf (or those old room dividers) we had to put my witch hat on after my head was through the hole. I still have that b/w photo and should scan it to sent to my brothers.

  21. Psh, I treasure my Halloweenies all year 'round! There's always something creeping around in plain sight! Were I to be the unbelievablylucky recipient of one of these, they'd never see the inside of a closet or box!

Having met him and purchased two of his fabulous creations, I really appreciate what it takes to create them and what a wonderful, friendly and supportive artist he is. Thanks for the opportunity to win one of these wonderful creations.

  46. My favorite Halloween treat is of course candy corn and I love to collect them in the plastic vintage bucket I used when I was a kid. It is a very round, orange bucket with a jack o lantern face. What I really love about it is the black mask it has around it's eyes.

  47. My favorite Halloween treasure of all time would be the box of stuff we put together our costumes from when we were kids, wish I still had it!

  48. My biggest Halloween treasure came from an old box of stuff nobody wanted when an elderly neighbor died. Her kids put boxes of stuff on the curb for the trash and told neighbors to take what they wanted. I found some vintage handmade Halloween masks from the 1930's including a satin black cat mask with glitter around the eyes. Also a half mask with a veil and some old diecut Halloween decorations -treasured by me for years and part of my yearly display :) -

  76. I love the old decorations and costumes they had when I was a child in the 1960s. We had a halloween carnival at our elementary school, and the place was just magical at twilight with the lights, and decorations, music and everybody in costumes. I can remember one friend in a large paper mache eggplant costume!

  77. Halloween is my all-time favorite holiday. My favorite treasure is probably a memory: the year my 9-year old sister died. I was 10 at the time, and we couldn't trick-or-treat because she was in a wheelchair. So my mother had a huge Halloween party and went ALL OUT with the decorations. Kids were afraid to go to the bathroom because of the giant spider shadow cast on the toilet seat. And in the middle of the party, the doorbell rang. When I answered, there were two 3-foot tall MONSTERS that waddled into the house! Kids were running and screaming in all directions. I grabbed Kathy's wheelchair and was trying to get her to safety. She, though, was always more savvy than I, and she was just laughing. The 'monsters' were a neighbor's parents wearing stockings on their heads, walking on their knees with their legs tucked inside the lets of their pants. Kathy died just before Christmas, but that memory of her laughing while I tried to hide her is one of the many wonderful memories I have.
    I'm tempted to think that may be part of the reason I love Halloween so much, but the truth is that Kathy and I always played witches even before she got sick.
    Anyway, I LOVE your site, and all the great Halloween treasures you have to share! Thanks.
