Meet Witchie-poo and Giveaway Reminder

Hi there!!!!  Where did last week go?  In fact, these pics have been in the camera a whole week!!!!!
Way back when, when someone made a witch that flew into a tree or wherever they made her run into, I HAVE LOVED HER!!!!  When they came out with a pattern for her, I just had to make her.  So, here is my Witchie-Poo.  Why I call her that, I don't know, but I do.

Here she is, in all her faded glory.  Her black dress is faded as is her orange hair   She does have a
broom, but we're getting lazy in decorating.

Just a reminder to sign up for my giveaway in the previous post.  Drawing will be Sun night.  Good luck to all who enter/entered.  New followers welcome.  US and Canada mailing.

The Forgotten Holiday for Decorating!!!

That's what I hear at craft shows.  So I went into overdrive and make alot of different Thanksgiving sit-arounds.  And I am offering one of them to the winner of my giveaway.  There are four different items.  Just let me know on this post, which one you would like to receive.

 The hat is 6" high
 The Indians are 5" high
 He 6"high and is a mini centerpiece.    I have a turkey on the other side and decorated identical.
He's on about a 6" wreath.

Now ....rules.  I hate rules, but the world runs better with some rules.

1.  Let me know on this post which one you would like.  Must be a follower.  New followers welcome.  USA and Canadian residents only.  Be sure I can contact you if you win.

2.  For a second chance, blog about my giveaway on your blog.

3.  Third chance, add to your sidebar.

That's it.  I think those are easy rules.  Oh, the deadline will be Oct 30th.  That way, hopefully, will be out in the mail that first week of Nov. and you can still enjoy before Thanksgiving.

Now, my last post about our online Christmas craft show.  For some reason, I could not highlight ORP's letter, so  you can't click on the name and go to their site from mine.  So Sorry!!!!  So, please visit ORP's blog and you can go to all the sites listed. 

Enjoy your day.  It is sunny and beautiful here in PA!!!!  Hope it is where you live.

Hi there,
Here's something new to you that I finished.  I made these years ago and every now and again, I dig this pattern out and do it.  There are always new girls that start coming to craft shows.  It's a 2-sided item.  So
you get 2 seasons out of one thing you have to put away.  It's just that after Christmas you have to find your fall box and put it in there.

 It's a 10 1/2" wood piece, not counting the length of the hanger.  There is a pearl sheen wiped over it, which the camera did not capture.  The spider is a flocked spider, so he kinda looks real.  The hanger is curly ribbon.

 Santa has a gold sheen wiped over him.

The piece is $20 plus shipping.

Hope everyone is having a great day.  No rain today.  Yeah!!!

Saturday's activities

What a gorgeous weekend we had.  Almost 80 degrees and Monica wanted to jump in leaves.  So, while I'm raking leaves, Monica was taking pics of the garden.  Some of my flags and decorations.

 Baby had to jump first!!!!
 Then Monica and baby!!!

Monica always want to paint something.  So, I had bought this witch's mask and she painted.

The hat is black, and she put purple and blue glitter on it.  Then for the bling!!!!!  The mouth is squares, teardrops, circles and stars.  Oh, she put red glitter on the face.  Stars in her hair!!!!

Did you notice my new blog header????  Traci at York Mountain Primitives made this up and anyone can have it!!!!  Wasn't that nice of her.  Thanks so much Traci.  I need all the help I can get!!!! lol

Have a great week.
