DRESS UP A SKELETON


I really love dressing up a skeleton!
I created this dear lady for a swap at Vintage Dragonfly
She sits atop a matchbox filled with goodies.





This is the type I use, I purchased these from Michael's.


I created this one for Cindy.
I am thinking a Halloween tree would be great filled with different skeletons??
Thanks for stopping by.

I LOVE FALL!! VISIT MY FALL/HARVEST PINTEREST BOARD


I so, so love Fall!!
I am not sure exactly why I love it so much, it may be the colors I guess.
I love the cooler temperatures, the color of the trees, so beautiful indeed!
I love the feeling of settling in for the long winter season, the fire in the wood stove, the candles soft glow, slippers and much more.
I thought I would share with you my Fall/Harvest Pinterest board
Take a look....

Thanks for stopping by.

EARLY CHRISTMAS CARD


I created this Christmas card for a challenge at The Craft Hole on Facebook.
I will share how I created this card.
Using a heavy piece of card stock the size of a standard card I modge podged tissue paper on the background.  
I searched through my stash of used Holiday greeting cards and found this Santa and chose another greeting card where I liked the gold and silver trim.  I set out to do some fussy cutting.
I took a piece of applique and painted it with brown glitter paint with some gold in places.
I purchased some paper snow flakes (I glittered with gold flakes) at Michael's a few days ago along with the little candy canes, a couple packages of poinsettias and some other fun items (I will share in a later post).
I used silver glitter paint on Santa's hat and sleeves and red glitter paint on his red suit parts to make him pop.
I hope you enjoy.
Thanks for stopping by.

FALL VIGNETTE AND A MATCHBOX

My Fall/Halloween decorated stand.



My vignette on the dining room table.
I purchased the fall bouquet several days ago, I love fresh flowers.
My owl is wearing a crown of harvest greatness...Isn't he handsome?



My matchbox I received from JoAnne over at Vintage Dragonfly
I have swapped with her once before, she knows what I love indeed.




I purchased the roses in this bouquet separately, I thought they went really well.
Thanks for stopping by.
