Halloween and Honeymoon

Here is my latest Halloween craft. I made this cone, using a vintage Halloween image.

I have been having some fun, in between helping my daughter.
Although tonight, we are working on wedding invitations. I already did the hand calligraphy on them, but now they need stamping, stuffing, and sealing wax. It is a process.




I also found this cute Halloween cat, at Garden Memories. I have mentioned before, it is the cutest shop in Ventura.
I couldn't help myself. I had to have him.
Barbara, the owner of the shop said, that she had just gotten them in, and there were only 3 left. So of course I had to get one. He is a replica of a vintage cat.

Here is my other little project. I made my daughter this journal, for her honeymoon. You probably can't tell from the picture, but I used a map of the places they will be visiting in Italy. It was a map from, Cavallini Papers.
Well, that is some of what I have been up to lately.

Hope you are having a great Thursday night!

You are doing so many special and thoughtful things for your daughter's wedding...I'm sure the day will be wonderful.

Love the cat. I can't wait for fall...of course it won't be even remotely cool here before December.
