Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular

My daughter and I, along with some friends, went to the Jack-0-Lantern Spectacular. We saw thousands of carved and illiminated pumpkins. The artistry was amazing!

Marie Antoinette charm bracelet swap update

I finished working on Terri's beautiful charm bracelet and sent it on its way to 9 other players who will also add to Terri's bracelet until it is full and returns back home.

These are the charms and tag I made to add to Terri's bracelet and tag book.

Halloween Marie Antoinette Art box

I recently joined a Halloween treat box swap in my Marie art group. We had to create a "treat bag/box" for our partner and fill it with goodies for making Halloween themed Marie Antoinette Art. This is the spooky art box that I made for Cathy.

Brimfield antique show

We went to the Brimfield antique show last Thursday. We walked around for over 6 hours and I think we only saw about half!

Here are some of my fabulous finds!

I found a vintage Marie postcard!

I think my favorite find of the day was a double daguerreotype with case. The case has a girl holding a flower basket, throwing flowers from it. Inside is 2 daguerreotypes. I'm guessing they are brother and sister. It is in great condition. I'm so happy to add it to my collection!

Marie Antoinette charm bracelet swap

I recently signed up for a charm bracelet swap in the Marie Antoinette Mail art group. There are about 9 players in my group. Each person adds a few charms to each bracelet and then mails it to the next person until you get your own bracelet back.

This is the inspiration photo

This is my starter bracelet and tag book.

These are the charms and tag I made for Rhonda's bracelet and tag book.

Mermaid Trousseau swap

I had a fun time participating in Bryanna's Mermaid Trousseau swap. I was so excited to receive my package from Vicki last week! Wow, Vicki sure went over the top (to the moon)! She is a very generous and talented artist! As you can see from the photos, I am a very lucky girl!

Some of the things I sent Vicki...

Yay! Kittens!

We have been so sad with the sudden loss of our wonderful cat Shadow . He was such a extraordinary cat. He made me laugh every day! We miss him so much and our other cat Sheena has been lost without him. So we decided to adopt a new kitten. Well make that 2 kittens! LOL!

Presenting Luna and her sister Lily!
