Vintage Halloween Swap

I had such a great time participating in Heidi Ann's swap from Foxgloves, Fabric & Folly.

My swap partner was Jen Smith from Rosey Little Things.

All of my gifts came wrapped in black tissue and orance lace bias tape. I was so excited about my package, that I forgot to take a picture of everything wrapped up! I love my cat pillow and handmade pumpkin. They look fabulous on my front porch bench! A fellow Girl Scout leader saw the pillow and is going to make it into a project for her Junior troop! Thanks for the inspiration, Jen!

I wore this to the pumpkin patch last week and

my 14 year old son commented on how cute it was!

This adorable "specimen tube" is filled with yummy candy corn. I'm sorry I don't have a good picture of the 2 Halloween magnets. They also came in spider stamped envelopes. Where is that picture of the vintage Halloween cupcake pick?

I believe Jen made this witch sign and those are real Scrabble tiles.

It looks so cute hanging on my banister.

This is a witch necklace that I sent to Jen. It is the same one I am

giving my guests at my Witches Tea.

I also sent her a few other little things: a big pumpkin, and little pumpkin for her curio cabinet and some candy corn for her 3 kids.

What fun it's been seeing everyone's swap goodies. I can't wait to see photos of your tea. :) That's so funny that you and your swap partner both made witch's necklaces. Great minds think alike.
