The "A Few of My Favorite Things" August EHAG Emporium Giveaway

Zombies and werewolves and black cats with kittens,
Witches with cauldrons and potions unwritten,
Ghosts, ghouls and goblins on their ghastly flings,
These are a few of our favorite things.

What are your favorite Halloween things?  Leave us a comment... or better yet, a verse of your own, and you could win one of these haunted treasures.  They're just a hint of what lies ahead in this month's EHAG Emporium when the doors creak open at 9PM EDT on August 31st.

The night before, at 9PM, you could win one of these ghoulicious gifts.  To enter, leave you comment and your contact information: a blog or email address.  Winners will be contacted by the artists once names have been drawn.  If the spirits send your notification to the haunted sp*m folder or you can't be reached, another winner will be chosen.

Sometimes the spirits like to play with people leaving comments, and won't let them.  If this happens, there is a spell to lift the curse.  email your comments and information to and we will add your comment for you.

Here are the giveaway ghoulies... er, goodies.

  7. Everything about Halloween is great, but one of my favorite things is going to a costume party. My very favorite thing is seeing the excitement in the participating children. (I can't get a verse to come to mind, but the others here are great). Thanks for the giveaway, love the prizes.

  8. At the first flash of orange and black
    I nearly have a heart attack
    Those colors, they can only mean
    That soon it will be Halloween!
    I don't think there's ONE favorite thing
    Not when you're talking Halloween...

  10. I'm not even going to attempt poetry but my favorite things involve Halloween!

  11. From Trisha, who was thwarted by the Comment Goblin:

    "I know better than to attempt poetry but I would love the candy corn earrings, a combination of my two weaknesses, candy corn and earrings. Halloween allows me to wear my pointy deep purple witches hat I have worn for about more Halloweens than the number of comments you received so far."


  12. Oh yeah...pick me! Just gave you a shout out on my blog.

  13. From Melissa, who was thwarted by the Blog Goblin.
    These are the best of Halloween! I love everything about Halloween and so did my mother who was born on Halloween. Thanks for all the fun art and jewelry.

    Thank you for the email option! Those spirits definitely like to play with my comments. Maybe it's because it's Halloween all year round in my house and I love all the EHAG offerings. They just get better and better.
    Happy haunting!

  21. Good Evening,

    While I adore all things Halloween, I would like to share a favorite Halloween memory . . .

    When my daughter, Kirsten, was three years old, my husband and I took her and her slightly older brother to just a few neighbors for Tricks or Treats. With them being so young, they each had a small jack-o-lantern pail for their bounty. The neighbors thought she was so cute in her angel costume that even though we only went to several houses, soon her pail was nearly full, and getting heavy. We wanted to carry it for her, but she insisted on doing it herself. We decided the next house would be the last visit for the evening, and when the door was opened and the little ones squeaked out “Trick or Treat!”, rather than looking angelic, she looked frighteningly Frankenstein-like, slowly lifting her pail with a locked-elbow stiff arm to present it for one last goodie.

    Now at college, one of her favorite things is a good cup of tea. When I saw the sweet print of “The Perfect Brew”, I thought of how much Kirsten would enjoy it, framed and in the kitchen of her apartment, alongside her teapot, special teacups and various concoctions of tea leaves.

    Thank you for your consideration!
