Halloween Swap

MORE SWAP GOODIES!!! My partner for the Black Cat and Pumpkin
Swap sponsered by Deb over at HophopjingleBoo is Lolly from Lolly's
Nest Egg
john was home when the package arrived and he had as much fun 'oohing and aahing' as I did.
My favorite piece is her collage of the black cats and pumpkins. I love collage work so much. I am going to frame it so i can place it on the wall
in the entry way for the holiday. Lolly your work is amazing. Thank you!!


This trio of pumpkins are nestled together on our coffee table. I love holidays so much and it has been very slow going to regather holiday decor. After the fire and moving back in there was always decorating and furniture and all that expensive stuff so the last two holidays are pretty sparse for decor. These really help and can be used for fall decor as well as halloween and thanksgiving. thank you lolly!


Lolly also included this darling vintage golden book that is all about

things starting with C! how special!
This cute cat is a gift bag and it sat on my kitchen table for a few days.

both of us thought it was our callie cat for a second. It is so precious.
In this bag were al
l these fun things, halloween straw man, a little black cat with a purple and black hat, a black cat pin, a fall pumpkin and leaf pick, a funky plastic black kitty that you fill with jelly beans and lift the tail for them to come out, we laughed over that one!! I also have a pumpin spice
sachet that fills the house. When we leave and come back in, the house smells like thanksgiving and pumpkin pie!!
Lolly also included a vintage scarf with gold/yellow trim. I can't wait to make it into something special. And there are also vintage and newer buttons. I love them!
Lolly included some very special vintage magazine ads and knitting projects how fun!! These are from the 50's in case you can't tell.

This was such a fun package. I am mailing lolly's package on Monday and am still finishing up a few things. This has been so much fun-----all these swaps are great. Swap partners turn into brand new friends and stretch your creativity as well. If you haven't signed up for one there is no time like the present.

What a wonderful package you got. So many great goodies. I don't know about that cat bag - it's too real looking for me - makes me feel a little creepy and tense.

Oh Catie...such a nice package of goodies. I was having fun just looking at all the treasures, it would be so much more fun in person.

what a lovely pile of goodies, I have become fascinated with Hallowean this year through blogging! It suits your time of year so well. We are in spring at the moment so Hallowean colours are all wrong with the season! But watch this space!

Thanks for visiting my blog. Amy just loved her Daiper cake. She is due in 19days so she will soon start to demolish the cake and use the daipers.
