Vintage Halloween Swap

This was a great swap, my partner was Shara, she sent a box full of goodies! Everything was wrapped in tissue and had a sweet tag attached to it but I forgot to take before pictures before I ripped into everything! The sweet vintage doll is wearing a dress and cape made by Shara, she embellished the witchs hat sign with glitter, and I just love the cute cat topiary!

She also made this beautiful cone.

She made the awesome book of spells, a sweet card, and a halloween scrapbook.

She sent lots of creepy crawly plastic
bugs and skeletons! The candy banner was made by her too!

Love the witch cookie cutter! She sent
pumpkin saftey candles, a sweet felt bag, lollipops, cat candles, a number 13 playing card, and noise maker!

Thank you Shara! I love everything!
And a special thanks to Heidi over at
foxglovesfabricandfolly for hosting this swap.
