New Etsy Items and a Very Vintage Halloween Swap

I've been in the "creative spirit" with some new paper items for Etsy. I couldn't resist making a very Fallish (is that a word?) journal for the upcoming season. A place to jot down lists, to-do items, creative thoughts, and even daily journaling. It's just a fun little journal that brightens the season!

I added some vintage millinery, a few rhinestones and lots of black swirly glitter.
Inside is a little pocket with a sweet little cupid tag. German silver glitter adorns the tag.

I could not resist printing some tags with these silhouettes of children feeding the chickens. What fun for the upcoming Thanksgiving season! Just a hint of black glitter and the yummy black and white polka dot ribbon!

And last, but not least, these sweet cupid tags, all done up in German glass glitter and silver cord. So sweet to add to a package.

I was in a "Very Vintage Halloween Swap" hosted by Heidi at Foxgloves, Fabric and Folly. Unfortunately, my partner had some family illnesses, so I am not able to show you her creation. But, here is what I sent to Missy.

I was inspired to create this "pumpkin lady" from a design by Bethany Lowe. I just loved that the "little lady" had a house of her own, and of course, vintage sheet music seemed to be the way to go for wallpaper. I edged the window openings in black glitter and added the sentiment of the season "Halloween".

She holds a banner of "Halloween Wishes" and seems a bit shy as she peeks out her window. Since the weather is getting a bit chilly, I gave her a crepe paper collar and a muff for her hands.

And where would she go without a hat? Made of vintage sheet music and circled in glitter, it adds a delightful frame for her little pumpkin face.

So, a very Happy Halloween to all of you in the "Very Vintage Halloween Swap", and to all of my dear sweet friends in blogland!
