Happy Fall and Hallowe'en soon too. I am just giving you all something different to look at here on my blog. This is what my daughter, Katie and I have been doing this summer. We have made up these Spooky old bottles for my friends antique shop, the Romantic Boutique in Waterford Pa. On Oct. 1st she is having "Witches Night Out" at her shop. It is sure to be fun. If you live in the surrounding Erie, Pa. area stop in! We took this pictures in my kitchen before taking them to the shop.
I have 2 new items below up for sale. Thanks for looking!

~Black Cat Broom Co~ stitchery box

Here is an old cheese box I made up with a mounted stitchery and a small broom. I have stitched a black scrawny cat along with a broom and it reads "Black Cat Broom Co". I did my stitching on osnaburg, coffee dyed it and then mounted it to the box with an acid free adhesive spray. The broom IS included the leaves are NOT. I tied a piece of black & tan homespun around the neck of the broom along with a olde witch tag and rusty bell. The broom looks really cute laying in the box, you can add your own little pumpkins, leaves or acorns to make a really sweet display. The box measures 11 1/2" wide x 3 1/2" deep and 3 1/2" high. It will be signed, dated and copyright 2011 on the bottom of the box.
Cost is $44 which includes Priority ship

~Pumpkin & Bittersweet~ stitchery pillow

Here is a sweet pillow to set out on one of your old chairs or you could use it in a cupboard mixed in with some bittersweet and your pumpkins. My stitching was done on osnaburg and I have a plump pumpkin in different shades of oranges surrounded by bittersweet vines and 4 gold Autumn leaves. I sewed pumpkin wool strips on each side and on the top and bottom are mustard/tan wool strips. It is backed with coffee dyed osnaburg and then stuffed lightly with polyfil. I attached a pumpkin stamped tag & rusty bell by a rusty safety pin in the corner for a primitive look. Measurements are 8"x8". This is my design and will come sign, dated & copyright 2011 on the back.
*SOLD* Thank you!
