Random Acts of Halloween!
Random Acts...New Creepy Crafties!
One of my all-time favorite postcards!
I have been so lax at blogging, I am embarrassed to say. More and more it seems like Facebook and Instagram are taking the place of posting for many of my blogging friends. I like the immediacy of sharing a new craft on Instagram...but nothing beats the magazine-style format of a good blog post. I enjoy writing about my life and odd-ball things I find on Vintage Vacations. The world is full of things that make you scratch your head and say "Huh?" I just love finding those things. So I will continue on.
This time of year, blog posts are mainly holiday craft oriented. The long winter days of January are a good time for story telling. This isn't the fanciest blog, with professionally designed elements...but it's mine and I love it! I hope you will hang in there when I am lazy and don't blog as often...I will try to do better.
New Creepy Crafties...
Shadow Box Jack.
He was an Art-Group project.
Boxes from Trina, Kim, Margo...and Me!
"Cat Scratch Fever"
Made from an old scratch remover container and a vintage British tart tin.
Side View. I just love his scraggly tail!
This little kitty is "Ditt-mark."
He's from a typewriting ribbon box.
"Tin Man Jack"
His tin is an oil can for a fuel-powered iron.
Of course he needs this little funnel for a hat.
Grim Grinning Gourds...come out to socialize!
I saw Kim K's wreath on Instagram and had to make one too!
This was so cheap to make...$10 worth of Walmart pumpkins
and an old wreath I already had.
Fun Fall Arrangement.
We made the mushrooms at Art Group from tart tins and old chair spindles.
I still love making "Fairy Gardens!"
This one was for my friend Kathy's Birthday!
I love using small porcelain figures and salts and peppers.
My DIL Lori painted this Halloween chair for me.
She is so talented!
This will be a Halloween heirloom for years to come.
This creepy clown needed a place to sit!
Thanks for letting me share my "Ghoulish Delights!"
