Something to Think About..

So time to start thinking about those Halloween decorations and Swaps.. [see my Wed. Sept.10th post below for Swap sign-up]

Love this Owl jug, I have a all yellow crackled glaze one...

Nice owl jar..

Bats and goblins free to fly ,this is a old Arthur Rackham illustration for Pandora's it!

Old Owl on Moon or jol?? I like to think its the Moon..

Nice idea for a owl doll..
Simple and cute card..

What a great idea! Everything looks so much more important and prettier 'under glass'..maybe I'll start wearing a jar over my head..

Another idea for those paperdoll lovers..

A pretty Witch ...and a scary doll head!

Glittery new Moon Ornaments..

This is such a 'cool ' idea ....old glass eyes some old book paper scraps and thread.. [and a great photo of it helps too]

Martha Stewart never disappoints when it comes to decorating! I love the bat cones..but where's the GLITTER?! [this is a old picture, 'before' Matha Stewart's craft line of fab products]..

Well....' My Coffee Break' is over's back to the basement to work.. so I'll leave you with this last but the BEST eye candy! WOOF! The Scottish Hunk Gerard Butler...[ found him on Flickr.

That picture of Gerard is magnetizing! I love all the Halloween goodies with the Danny Elfman soundtrack !!! You rock! Where is the eyes in the cupcake papers from? I wish I could find some of those reasonably priced! Creepy cool! I'm working on your stuff today! I am going to get some more printable fabric and use some of your great vintage images- I especially love the Arthur Rackham Pandora - I have his Alice in Wonderland Book of Illustrations! They are awesome.
