Shop Update and Trick or Treat

It's hard to believe that in a month Thanksgiving will be here!!!
These were part of a group of collages that I made for a custom order. I just loved
the way that they came out!
I was thinking about making some more for my etsy shop but I wasn't sure how many people
decorated for Thanksgiving. Do they ????
Thanksgiving is the one holiday we didn't do BIG at our house growing up.
It was just a day to eat (a lot!) and discuss Christmas plans with family.
Leave a comment on this post if you care to~ do you decorate for Thanksgiving???

So, I saw a woman wearing a pin like this~ but with Halloween-inspired fabrics~ So CUTE!!!
I decided
I would try and make some romantic-style versions of my own~ now available in my etsy shop!
I think these would make adorable Christmas gifts!!!

Also, I can't shake my love of vintage cowgirl themed stuff...
I have it all around my house and I just love making I decided to make some
ornaments for our Christmas tree this year~ also made some for etsy :) Now available.

Back to LIFE~
Today is our 6th Wedding Anniversary!!!!
And it was trick-or treat in our neighborhood!!!
Does it get any better than that????
I had a house full of friends and family~ kind of a "Halloween Open house" it was a blast~
I hurried and snapped a pic of the table before people got here (and all the food was out!)
I just love Halloween! It looked so festive!
"I'm with Creepy"
Happy 6th!!!

More Thanksgiving collages for the custom order...the more I see em', the more I love em'!

At a garage sale this summer I bought a big box full of old trims and lace (it was THE BEST find!!!) anyhoo, in the bottom of the box was this pretty old blue floral fabric~ that is what I used for the largest layer on this Posie. Now available on etsy!

Vintage Cowgirl Award Ribbon Ornament
I just LOVE those old horse prize Fair Ribbons~ I am always trying to win them on ebay to no avail. Someday....
Anyhoo, till then I will make my own versions :)
