October 1903 or 1905My Halloween contest ended last night at midnight and I am here to announce the winners. I was a bit disappointed by the quantity of entries. I got many more entries for my "Fire Fancies" art contest. I would have thought people would be more daunted by art than writing, but since I am a writer by profession that may just be my bias.
However, I was not disappointed by the quality of the entries. In the end, I could not choose among Sarah, Eleanor and Shopgirl (Mary) so you are all winners. Congratulations!! To read the entries, go the the comments section in the post below.
And Riverbird, you are the winner of the drawing for making a comment. All of you, please e-mail me your mailing addresses. (Just go to my profile on the sidebar and click on the link that says "View my complete profile". On that page you will see an e-mail link on the left side.) Mary, I think I have your address but please send it to me again.
Now, for this post. You all know how much I love vintage Halloween. I have shared posts about vintage Halloween postcards, costumes and other collectibles. Now, for your enjoyment, vintage Halloween magazine covers. I didn't use any from the 1950s and forward. I just don't think the art is as nice. Plus, I'm from that era and I don't want to think of myself as vintage just quite yet!
