This is why I love Bartering, Swaping and Trading!!!

This is an awesome Match Box that Victoria at www.thingsIlearnfromBear.blogspot.com
made for me. I bartered with her for this awesome box! I had a new digital camera and she needed one and I wanted a matchbox with pumpkins and crows. Well Victoria out did herself. This is so beautiful for Fall. I love this saying it reminds me of the kids craving pumpkins when they were little and how much fun we always had.

Look how cute the ends are. She put little fruits as the pulls. She filled this up with so many sweet goodies!!

She also gave me this cool crow stamp and some orange pumpkin paper doilies also.

 We were also partners in Tee's Halloween ATC Swap. This is the ATC I made for Victoria. I think it turned out pretty cute. The EEK is a vase I made and put little purple wild flowers in it. I love all the Fall and Halloween items that are everywhere!

This is the awesome ATC Victoria made for me!! Victoria has made me feel so blessed! Check out her blog for her other awesome things she makes. She is a rock star at making cards too! And her dog Bear is so adorable!!!




Here is what else I have been up to making my Bird Nests from my treasures from Lake Huron! I used an old chenille bedspread for the pumpkin part, a twig for the stem and lot's of natures gifts from the beach and a cute little black and orange bird. I love making these and will be listing this one and more in my Etsy Shoppe!! Thanks for looking at my goodies and blessings!!
XO Fran.
