Etsy Treasures and a few last snippets of Halloween













































I have a few wonderful goodies to show you tonight...two are etsy treasures from here http://thehouseofwhimsy.blogspot.com/ and http://kathyscottage.blogspot.com/ I did a trade with Mary Lou from House of Whimsy awhile back for one of these delightful witches...she is gorgeous. I named her Tabitha. The detail is out of this world! The other is a delightful raven I got from Ms. Kathy.....she had them last year and I never got to one fast enough. I LOVE him...she does wonderful work! He is so whimsical...he will be staying out for quite some time...I will have problems putting him away after Thanksgiving. Than I did a fun trade with Michelle from http://imalittletpott.blogspot.com/ fell in love with her little stitched wicked pillows...adorable! I have it tucked in an ironstone bowl. She also sent along MANY goodies...the milk glass is from her , the little wooden pumpkin, a candle...which is gone...smelled wonderful! Candy and socks for my tootsies...with candycorn on them! Quite frankly she spoiled me!


Other than that...I snapped a few poorly lit pics of my hallway where I have a few Halloween goodies sitting out. The other pictures show a wreath I made awhile back all out of paper. I used a few Halloween postcards and made some rosettes. It hangs on my front door. I thought it turned out pretty cute. Thanks so much for the lovely comments on my early Christmas endeavors. If I don't start now...it just wont get done! Happy Wednesday to you all! XoXo, cherry

Amazing! Especially that witch!

Ok I love the little blackbird on the pumpkins. For some reason I can't wrap my mind around these styrofoam feeling fethered blackbirds, they sort of creap me out, but they are so popular. Maybe that is good for Halloween! I like the cloth one, it just feels more natural. You have some pretty cool decorations, but I love that little bird on Pumpkins the very best. Too cute. Have a great Halloween!
