Do you LOVE
Edgar Allen Poe?
Did you read him when you were young
and find his stories horrifically macabre?
I think I was about 10 or 11 when I read
for the first time
and from there I went on to
The Telltale Heart and
The Pit & The Pendulum.
and then the rest of his works.
Well, guess what?!?!
I WON a book that contains four of his best stories!
It has POP UPS
I signed up for this give away over at
Vera's Row Homes & Cobblestones Blog
I hardly ever sign up for giveaways because I
am so richly blessed already...
Oh! I had to do it.
Now-not only did Vera send the book~
You should SEE the packaging!
Sadly, you can't!
Why? WELL-because I was
SO EXCITED to get this baby that I
TORE ALL THE WRAPPINGS OFF
before I photographed it.
But here is what was in the package.
I tried to neaten it up a bit for you.
Two copies of his original works on velum.
The Raven & Annabel Lee.
and oh- Vera made wonderful tags
and there were cards in the package-
The pops up are quite "spooky"
Thank you SO much, Vera!
This is a GREAT addition to my library.
I am reading it tonight.
I have been saving it for
My 12 year old grandgirl, Lulu,
was here and asked if she could read
The Telltale Heart.
I let her.
She said- Well, that is weird, spooky.
Not scary spooky like movies today.
You got that right, Lulu.
There will never be another
EDGAR ALLEN POE.
He was scary before scary was cool.
Personally, I think he is a little
myself...but that is just a personal opinion.
Hap-POE Halloween to you.
Watch out for
that might be over your head
while you are out and about.
The chair is empty but the
legend lives on.
Last chance to sign up for the giveaway
Sweet Cheeks will do the drawing tomorrow.
I am in Milwaukee today visiting some
babies and their Mama & Daddy.
Catch ya later!
