Hi Lyndy, WAAAAAAAY COOOOOOOL! Your Halloween Party Is Mahvelous Dahling. The graphics are wicked good and Happy 3 Year Blogoversary too. Merlin and his Alter Ego Merlin are beautiful. Wonderful idea to have a wizard cat doll commissioned after him.

I was wondering if I need a blog to participate? I think you need a blog to follow and you can subscribe without a blog.

I collect postcards and all three of your giveaways are super neat. If I don't win, I will be heading over to eBay for your Munsters PC for sure. Your eBay auctions are really cool. I see that condition makes a big difference in pricing and maybe I can pick up all three when you run your 7 day sales.

You Halloween music is perfect, it puts you in the mood for candy. LOL

Halloween Good Cheer,
Stacey and Pyewacket (my Bombay black cat)

P.S. I think you already have my email address, please let me know.

LYNDY WARD said...

Hi Stacey & Pyewacket, WOW thank you for the fabulous comments. They really mean a lot. Both my Merlin's are gorgeous. You should check out Joyce's Enchanted Doll Productions too, her dolls are truly amazing.

Yes, you can subscribe without a blog & no you don't need a blog to participate. You do need a blog to follow.

I'm always adding to our eBay store & I'll be adding the Batman PC today. Thanks for checking out our eBay auctions. A lot of work goes into them, with clear PICs, historical facts & guide appraisals.

Was your cat named after Gillian Holroyd's (Kim Novak) Siamese cat & familiar in the film Bell, Book & Candle? I've always wanted to get a Siamese kitty & name him Pyewacket. He must be beautiful, email me a PIC of him when you can & yes I have your email addy.

Have A Wicked Good Halloween & Stay Safe!

Cosmic Blessings Always,
Lyndy & Merlin

Hi Karrie, thanks for your comments & very funny about being related... Doesn't everyone have a few vampire family members in their closet?

Have A Spooktacular Halloween,
Lyndy

suzanne.artist said...

Cosmic Blessings to you too Lyndy! I love the fact that you are a keeper of archival-worthy postcards of our American cinema and tv shows! I'd love to frame one of these to add to my wall-lovely art-doll created by Joyce too.
Thank you for the opportunity.

Anyways, I think your blog has such an awesome old school Hollywood feel to it , the music and everything... It's just so dramatic and glamorous :-) Thank you for posting all of the fun Halloween Memorabilia... it felt like I was walking through a vintage store, so many great finds and treasures...

Have a super fun Hollywood Halloween!
