Wishing everyone a neato cool Halloween! Enjoy all the fiendish fun on this holiday of imagination and mystery!
Earlier this month I found this whimsical antique Halloween treat box and I had to resist sharing it until today. It's amazing to think that someone, probably a child at the time, saved this wonderful and fragile piece that dates back to the 1920s. This box covered in orange and black crepe paper with the grinning Jack O'Lantern on top has many mysteries. What kind of candy was inside? What Halloween memory does this box represent? How did it survive all these years? Who was the original owner? The mystery just adds to the charm of this piece. That goofy grin just tells us that Jack knows something and he's not telling anyone...ever.
