JOL Snowmen are popping up everywhere in the neighbor-hood this morning! A snowy, cold, and treacherous night lead way to a sunny winter wonderland morning.
Our first snow creature was made! I can't remember the last time it snowed before Halloween. Unfortunately, because the snow was wet and heavy, many families are without power and Trick or Treating has been postponed till Wednesday November 2nd. As long as there is candy involved, Julia should be fine with that :) To celebrate the snowy spooktacular holiday, I used my hubby's skelly gloves for shoveling. Happy Halloween everyone!

It's just a few weeks away until the big Halloween night. Julia wants to be a Geisha Girl. She saw this adorable costume at Target weeks ago and she had to have. Of course, Mommy decided to wait till it was closer to Halloween before she bought it; knowing full well that she would change her mind at least 2 or 3 times before the big day. Well, go figure.....she didn't! And, as expected, Target doesn't have her size! No fears. I ordered it on-line and it should be here by the end of the week. Thank goodness or I would be sewing a last minute costume to make up for my procrastination. Hurray for the internet!

I finished up this cute little Dead of the Dead / Halloween Bunny Gift Box tonight and took a few quick pics to share. Tomorrow I will take "cleaner" photos in the daylight so I can get this listed on my Etsy site. Hope you like her.

Till later,

Hi everyone,
Most of the shakers are now listed on Etsy. I have a couple still yet to finish.

I was also able to finish up a new large medallion to hang on the wall or hook on a door knob. It is large. The center wooden piece is hand painted and aged and about 6 1/2 wide. I added a hand ruffled orange crepe paper. All in all, it is about 11" wide.

There is an orange pom pom cord for hanging.

This design was inspired from a vintage Halloween image I ran across on Flickr. There is a hint of black sparkle and tons of charm. Hope you like it :)

And thank you to all of you for playing with me!

Till later,
