Lucky #13 Day 13

Today is starting out to be quite the busy day for me.
I have a Halloween themed Delicious Darkness art project to share.
I will also be sharing my latest and greatest Universal Monster
procurement from ebay.

I made another tabbed insert to go in my paperbag album.
I'm going to finish that thing this year if it kills me.
And it just may.

I used the Aquarius image from Delicious Doodles Horrorscope line.
She just oozes Halloween doesn't she?
Among other things....  

I used the Stampin' Up tab punch and added a big ol' jack-o-lantern 
brad to make it super Halloweenie. And let's not overlook that
fabulous ribbon. It's one of my favorites for Halloween projects. 

I added the Black Bat label that was cut out of some random dp.
I like the look of that label. Makes the whole page look like a spooky
advertisement in a Halloweentown paper.  

And that's my project for this month's challenge at
Delicious Darkness. Drop by and check out the other
Halloweenie makes from the rest of the DTs.

 And as promised....

Here is my new treasure!!
I am a collector of many things, and one of them is vintage metal lunch boxes.
I have many non-vintage ones as well, but the old ones are my true gems.

This one is only 9 years younger than me. 
I think that qualifies as vintage. 

It's in pretty good shape considering most kids used to bowl
with theirs on the blacktop, and in the concrete halls at school. 
I know I did, anyway.

Super nice graphics. Bright colors.

And there he is! All smiles, and waving like a sweet lagoon creature. 

Slight dent, but not too bad. I have some boxes in worse shape.

These two make me giggle.

And I just had to share the inside. Most lunch boxes look as
though someone left a dirty diaper in it, and then closed it up for 
20 plus years. I have scrubbed such boxes before. 
I just keep telling myself, "It's just sandwiches and bananas."
Even without the thermos, I am thrilled with this purchase. 

See ya tomorrow with another Halloween art project for 
And more of my Halloween hoarding collectibles.
