Some Pumpkin love!!!!

I love how this pumpkin turned out!! I made it from an old vintage chenille bedspread I got at an auction this summer! It was damaged so I decided to upcycle it!! I used my special treasures I picked up from our trip to Lake Huron. I have this listed in my Etsy Shoppe and wanted to share what I have been doing lately! I am getting ready for a craft show like I said at my church! I realized how much I miss blogging and checking in with you guys!! The show is next Sat. so maybe I can get back to reality soon! But I love being in the craft show show too! It is great fellowship and good food!!
I'll be sure and take pictures to share. Sim is going to be in the craft show too. It is his first one and he is making Tramp Art, Barn wood Bird Houses and Wind chimes made from Vintage Kitchen items!! They are pretty cool. It's cold and gloomy here a good day to work on creating!!
Love ya, XO Fran.

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

This is an awesome Match Box that Victoria at
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!!
