A Riddle....and a Halloween GIVEAWAY! (CLOSED)

What do you get when you use this....

....along with these items....

....and your own creative juices?????

You get THESE!!

Did you say ADORABLE?! 
I could hear you all the way through the internet!!
Meet "Boo" and "Eek"! They're twins......'cause you know I'm partial to twins!!
This original pattern came from Thread Bare Primitives. Of course, I took it a few steps further and made it my own!
I took apart some table legs and then used some old oak that a friend gave me to make the stands. I doweled them together with some wood glue and then attached the sewn and painted heads on around the wood spindle with some hot glue. 

I wood glued some wooden letters that I painted, added homespun and seasonal cotton fabrics for bows and they were born! The tags are from Fresh Lemon Blossoms on Etsy. I LOVE Miki's shop!
These were WAY TOO MUCH FUN for me to make! And because of that, I'd LOVE the opportunity to share one with you!
Yes, it's GIVEAWAY time!
You know my rules by now.....
1. Just leave me a comment telling me which one (Boo or Eek) you like best!
(include your email so I can get in touch with you if you don't have a blog!)
2. Be a follower or become one.
3. Advertise this on your blog's sidebar, FB, or Tweet it!!
4. Tell me your favorite Halloween treat!!
Put all of this in one comment, please!
This Giveaway will run until Monday, October 10th! Come back that morning to see who the winner is. If I had a good weekend, then maybe I'll throw in another one.....oh, and if I make it to 200 followers, I just might have something XTRA Special to give!!!
Thanks again for participating! You know I 'heart' each and every one of you.....'cause on the internet, YOU CAN!!!
