AUTUMN is here!...

...AUTUMN with Matthew Mead Magazine, that is...... I just received my copy before the labor day holiday, so I have had a chance to peek at the lovely fall-themed pages of this collector's book-azine. This issue has extra special meaning to me as I am one of Matthew's style contributors. Fortunately, I had the unique opportunity to document and share a very special Halloween event within its pages. Allow me to entice you with a few teaser images from my 8-page spread, but trust me when I say that it's best enjoyed in your hands and in its entirety!...

* Yep, that's me being my silly spooky self, standing before a table of my Halloween creations that I shared for an audience of passionate collectors...

* Who's that?  Well, it's Mark Craven of Craven Farm sharing his love for vintage Halloween collectibles to the Washington state Country Collectors Group...

* I spy the costume-bedecked Bruce Elsass of the Hobgoblins Collection in his yellow and black Halloween prints. A tease of Halloween collectibles leave you wanting to see more, I hope! And, look at mom's "Autumn Crow" folk art original pillow.... Sweet!

AUTUMN with Matthew Mead Magazine is an Order Only publication, so snag one for yourself today before they are all gone! CLICK here to Order Yours :) Of course, I am a wee bit partial to the Trick-or-Treat article starting on page 20, but the whole issue is a treat! Enjoy........... OH, and if you missed it, make sure to scroll down to my August 9th blog posting where I share additional photos that we took at this memorable Halloween event... If you have made plans to attend one of the 2 Halloween folk art shows I will be exhibiting at, please bring your copy with you, and I promise to sign it....

Many thanks to Matthew Mead once again for allowing me to bring this special Halloween story to you!

Happy Haunting,
~ Johanna
