Swap and Working!

Freebie Postcards...






I bought half a black valance at local St. Vinnie store, works great for decorating.. clipped it with my vintage Beistle cutouts, the half pumpkin was a Target gem, used my swap tags from Betty as tassels on my garland..old plastic jol rubbed with a gold wash and filled with silks.. the can dangle was from Target..



Hung up my art glass balls over the kitchen sink and the copper mold fruit basket is from My 'Vintage Kitchen Swap' with Ele of http://www.abitofpinkheaven.blogspot.com/..My wine shelf is empty of wine bottles and filled with knicknacks...and my Bethany Lowe reproduced pieces on the window sill.. plus my 2 favorite bisque 'pixies on bugs'...




Another freebie postcard .. one of my favorite places to be.. in bed, with a snuggly kitty..





A sneak peak at my projects.. for the "Sweet & Sinister Swap" at http://www.artsymama.blogspot.com/
