halloween swap

I participated in a really fun swap...a vintage black and white themed halloween swap. And just wait until you see the fabulous treats we received. I didn't have a feather tree so I took some pussywillow branches in a bucket and put them in a wheelbarrow...very impromptu but I think it looks rather whimsical.
Here's the tiny ornament I made...after I received everyone's goodies I realized it was a bit too small...oh well.

Amy, I've followed your blog for several years. Your's was one of the first "blogs" I discovered when I had no idea what a blog was!
You always find the cutest things for your house. Love the little tea towels.
I was wondering if you might share some of the shops where you frequent (brick and mortar or online.) I'm looking for a few things for my house and want to had some fun to my home!
If you'd share, it would be wonderful. I love your taste in decor and your creations.
Hug your little rhino for me!
Hugs, Michelle

I know you generally shy away from the spooky side of Halloween but that all looks very whimsical and cute! The black and white is a nice twist on the seasonal colours... and your ornament is a tiny delicious treat! It holds its own.

Michele said...

Hi Amy...thank you so much for the cute ornament in our Halloween Swap. Just like mixing patterns, every swap needs a few well-done small, medium and large pieces. So your ornament was perfect and small, but not "little"!!! Thank you!

Barbara said...
